I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. My classes are open to all, from beginners to more experienced students, and taught in a relatively slow 'hatha' style - beginners are always welcome. Two of my classes are ultra slow and gentle, and are aimed at older students and anyone with health issues looking for extra support and encouragement.
If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one) in my home studio in north Oxford (or your home by arrangement) on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.
On Mondays, I offer two classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm, in roomy studios: all levels welcome. Drop in any week.
On Tuesdays, I offer a small ultra slow and gentle class, where you can use a chair if you wish, in Summertown at 2.30pm. The aim is to work on keeping mobile, and come along any time. In the evenings, I offer a class in the city centre for Oxford University staff and friends at 6pm.
On Wednesdays, I offer three classes in Abingdon: a ultra slow and gentle class at 3.45pm, plus two after work classes at 5.15 and 7.15pm. Booking is essential for these small group sessions in the Sanctuary at St Ethelwolds House where numbers are limited to eight.
The new term for 2020 starts on Monday 6th January and runs up to 25 March, with a one week half term break 17-21 February. For more details click Timetable of classes
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.
Cost Drop in £10, but I offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance. If you are interested in one-to-one, or small group teaching, please get in touch, especially if you have health issues. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0771 520 7784
Special rates for students in full time education who come with a parent. I have four mums and daughters currently coming to class. Dads and sons where are you? Come and try a class!

Yoga blog and class notes 4 February 2017 The answer, of course, is yes: we need strength i.e. strong and healthy muscles that support our bodies and joints, for instance when we stand/walk/run, or lift heavy objects. We also need strength to move into and keep the joints stable when...

Blog and class notes 27 January 2017 Welcome to a new term leading up to Easter in which my theme to begin the year is Yoga Fundamentals. It’s never a bad thing to go back to basics for even teachers and experienced students as it gives us time to re-evaluate...
Why do we sigh? I’ve never given the sigh much thought, but apparently we all do it – even babies and cats and dogs. Sometimes I feel a deep sigh as I settle down into a particularly relaxing yoga posture. Other times it’s a response to sadness, depression or despair....
This week I’ve been sharing some of what we did at an Alexander Technique and Yoga workshop I attended recently. The first thing we were asked to do was stand. Just shut our eyes and stand; and feel that our heads are balanced. Then, one by one, we were gently...
