Yoga classes

I am now on holiday for August. I am teaching some outdoor classes on an ad hoc basis on Mondays and Tuesdays in Abingdon and Oxford.

My teaching term restarts on 14th September, and I hope to be able to offer you a choice of online classes using  Zoom, and indoor studio classes run according to Government regulations. 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).

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.

From 14th September I am planning to teach as follows:

ONLINE YOGA Mondays 7-8.15pm 

STUDIO DATES  Abingdon on Mondays 12.30, and on Wednesdays at 5pm and 7pm; and in Oxford on Tuesdays at 6pm    

 It's never too late to start whatever your level of fitness, or age  Read more about yoga here.

  • The value of forward bends

      Big claims are made for the benefits of the seated forward bend (paschimottanasana), one of the classic poses of yoga, and said to be able to both heal a troubled body and sooth a restless mind. It stretches the back, massaging the internal organs, and is said to work...


  • Try an Energy Block Release sequence

    I like to begin my yoga practice slowly, beginning with some gentle movements to prepare the body for stronger work later on. I believe these first 15 minutes or so do far more than just warm up the body for exercise – they also allow us to make a mental...


  • 16th century textbook on yoga

    The Hatha Yoga Pradīpikā (or Light on Hatha Yoga) is a classic Sanskrit text written by Swami Svātmārāma, who incorporated older Sanskrit concepts into his popular synthesis in the 15th century. It is one of the three classic texts of hatha yoga. It details the techniques of the main practices...
