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.

  • Alexander Technique and posture

    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...


  • Looking after your knees

    I’ve been thinking a lot about knees lately – mine have been sore around the outside of the joint - and I’ve been to the chiropractor and doctor, and had an X-ray. The problem appears to be quite simple - they’re too knobbly. Over the weeks and years I’ve been...


  • 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...
