Yoga classes

ONLINE YOGA

I am now teaching three classes a week online using the Zoom application. It's easy to use and if you have done some yoga before drop me an email using the contact form and I'll send you details.

Beginners

If you are a complete beginner or haven't done much recently, and like to try a 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.

My classes

Normally, I teach in Abingdon and Oxford, and all are welcome from beginners to more experienced students. I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style. If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one).

The levels below are just a guide, as all of my classes are taken at a relatively slow pace, especially suited to the Zoom format where I limit numbers so I can still give tips and advice to you individually as we go.

ONLINE YOGA

Mondays Level 1  12pm-1pm 

Tuesdays Level 2  5pm-6pm

Wednesdays Level 3  6pm-7pm

DATES

This timetable will run through May and June. It may be possible if the current regulations change to teach outdoors in the summer.

My philosophy is you don't need to be bendy to do yoga! In fact, quite the opposite, it's the stiff and creaky among us who stand to benefit the most. I strongly believe that yoga should be for everyone, of all ages and all levels of fitness. I teach in a gentle hatha style that is ideal for beginners, sports people with tight muscles, and older students, as well as more experienced students seeking a deeper practice. It's never too late to start  Read more about yoga here.

  • Are you sitting comfortably?

    It’s called Sukhasana in Sanskrit, which translates into English as easy sitting pose. But for most of us it ain’t easy at all. In fact, before long you might find that your back starts to ache with the effort of sitting up straight, knees starting to protest, and nerve tingling...


  • Yoga Fundamentals Week 10 - mind, body and spirit

    The week’s theme was loosely entitled the philosophy of yoga – an impossibly vast subject to cover in a lifetime, let alone a single class. The yoga we practise in class – hatha, or forceful yoga – has come about through a meeting of ideas from west and east. And...


  • Yoga Fundamentals Week 9 - philosophy


  • Yoga Fundamentals Week 8 - restorative

    When life is racing, and there never seems enough time, the odds are your mind is over active, which can make it hard to switch off and relax. Restorative yoga can provide that off-switch we need, making it easier to rest and recuperate. If you have  problems sleeping, then a...


  • Yoga Fundamentals Week 7 - flow

    One of the most popular styles of yoga – especially in the US – is flow, or vinyasa flow. The Sanskrit word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” in this case asanas, or poses. In vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow...
