Yoga classes

I teach both online using  Zoom, and in the studio with limited numbers set by the venues to meet current Covid requirements.  I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness, and welcome beginners. If y0u have specific health issues,  or would like individual classes tailored to suit you, I can offer one to one Yoga Therapy sessions, either in person or via Zoom.

The next term of seven classes runs from Monday 2nd November until Thursday 24 December 2020

ALL CLASSES NOW ONLINE on Zoom DUE TO CURRENT LOCK DOWN 

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. I personally find Zoom a  good alternative to studio classes.  Read more about yoga here.

Gently pulling the breath in on inhalation and gently pushing the breath out...


  • The philosophy behind yoga

    Over the last term, I’ve introduced the Yoga Sutras, a collection of ancients texts written around 2000 years ago. Yogic philosophers outlined the principal of Ashtanga or eight limbs, a step-by-step path for purifying the body and mind. The ultimate goal: to help practitioners cultivate a steady mind, leading to...


  • Why cats are so flexible!

    Cats are amazingly flexible and agile and, try as we might, we humans never look quite the same when we come onto all-fours for the cat posture. But there’s good reason for this - for one thing, cat shoulders are not attached to the spine by a joint, but rather...


  • What does non stealing have to do with yoga?

    Asteya (non stealing) is the third of the five Yamas in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, a guide to the philosophy of yoga compiled nearly 2000 years ago. Just like the other Yamas, ‘non-stealing’  has a wide range of meanings. It can be thought of as far more than not taking something...


  • Don't judge yourself when doing yoga

    This term I am introducing some of the philosophy that lies behind yoga, and how it might be applied to what we do in class. We started last week with the ‘yamas’, which act as a guide as to how to live the right kind of life. The second yama...
