Yoga classes

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. In addition, I run two ultra gentle classes 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 an ultra gentle class  in Summertown at 4.15pm 'yoga for all', and a class in the city centre for Oxford University staff and friends at 6pm.

On Wednesdays, I offer three classes in Abingdon: an ultra 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. 

See classes page for more.

DATES

The current term runs until the end of July, and classes restart on Monday 9th September.  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 yoga@lucytennyson.com 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!

  • Building up upper body strength for sun salutations

    The Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) is a mainstay of yoga classes everywhere. It consists of a linked sequence of asanas, moving from standing, through a lunge to downward dog, plank and cobra, and back up to standing. Although quite often offered as a warming up sequence, it should never be...


  • Too tired to practise? Try a yoga massage

    ‘ve been going to yoga classes for around 40 years, but I’d never realised until now there is something called yoga massage. Having just had my first ever treatment, I can say it’s quite extraordinary to have experienced a completely passive form of yoga. Instead of stepping, twisting and bending...


  • Look after your best FEETure

    We spend most of our lives in our heads, thinking and doing. But spare a thought for your feet – how are they right now? Tucked away inside shoes? Immobile since you last sat down?  How often do you get to walk barefoot, or challenge your ankles on an uneven...


  • How to let go after a busy day

    Getting started on a home practice can be a challenge. One way to make that transition from a busy day is by lying down and simply following your breath. Breathing exercises not only help us calm the mind, but also help improve the way we breathe, strengthening the muscles of...


  • Use the breath to de-stress

    Dealing with the stress of everyday life plays a crucial part in staying well, both mentally and physically. We all know that the mind and body are interlinked, and this linking (or yoking) of the two in yoga practice helps make it distinctive from other forms of exercise. Indeed, the...
