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.
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.
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.
Mondays Level 1 12pm-1pm
Tuesdays Level 2 5pm-6pm
Wednesdays Level 3 6pm-7pm
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.

Yoga blog and class notes 17 February 2017 Imagine a see saw perfectly balanced at the mid point with two people at either end – equal in weight for the see saw to remain level. A heavier person would need to move nearer to the middle to keep level, and...
Blog and class notes 9 February 2017Most of us are drawn to yoga because we want to become more flexible and maintain mobility. However, yoga tends to attract already flexible people, while those with tighter bodies can be put off (especially if the class brings out our more competitive edge!). Those...
Yoga blog and class notes 24 February 2017 Why go upside down? Doing an inversion is today regarded as a fundamental aspect of a yoga sequence, along with twists and forward and back bends. Even without realising it, you are already doing quite a few inversions, in which the head...
In some yoga classes, you might hear the teacher talk about ‘prana’, often in conjunction with thinking about or using the breath. This might be in terms such as ‘breathing in prana’, or ‘thinking about the prana (energy) flowing through the body’. In terms of a working definition, prana...
