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.

  • How much time do YOU spend sitting down?

    We all know we spend too much time sitting down. You’ve probably heard that “sitting is the new smoking” — the looming health risk in the computer age. A proliferation of studies over the past decade has linked prolonged stretches of sedentariness to an uptick in the risk of diabetes,...


  • Benefits of going upsidedown

    There are many benefits to going upside down in yoga – but beware, inversions are not for everyone. It’s a contentious issue in yoga circles, but some believe injuries that result from long term practice of postures such as headstand and shoulderstand include compression of the upper spine and impaired...


  • Add some flow to your yoga

    Vinyasa in traditional yoga means a gradual progression or a step-by-step approach that systematically and appropriately takes a student from one point and safely lands them at the next point. It is sometimes described as the “breathing system,” or the union of breath and movement that make up the steps....


  • A great stretch for the legs

    Posture of the month - reclining hand-to-big-toe pose Over the last few weeks, we have been thinking about our legs, from the foot and ankle up, and practising one pose in particular, Supta Padangusthasana. I have trouble pronouncing the Sanskrit with this one! So let’s call it reclining hand-to big-toe-pose,...


  • How to breathe into your yoga

    We began last week’s class with thinking about how we use the breath,  taking time to explore the simple action of inhale/exhale, and how movement follows the breath, and not the other way around. Taking the simple example of just inhaling the arms up and exhaling down: we start breathing...
