I offer a choice of online classes using Zoom, or indoor studio classes with limited numbers set by the venues to meet current Covid requirements. All are welcome especially beginners and those looking for good stretch and chance to relax after work. I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness. If y0u have specific health issues, or would like individual classes tailored to suit you, I am also able to offer one to one Yoga Therapy sessions.
Beginners If you are a complete beginner or haven't done much recently, and like to try a Zoom class just get in touch. I will then arrange a chat on the phone and/or a one to one tutorial to get you started. It's never too late to start whatever your level of fitness, or age Read more about yoga here.
