Yoga classes

I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness, and welcome beginners. I teach both in the studio (from mid June) and online using Zoom. I am now teaching Monday - Wednesday up to the end July. 

I returned to the studio in mid-June at St Ethelwolds in Abingdon,  with a new afternoon class at 2pm, focussing on movement and flexibility which welcomes beginners. The popular Wednesday evening classes start at 5.15pm and 7pm.  Numbers are currently restricted to six. I teach online using Zoom on Mondays at 6pm (all levels), and Tuesdays 5-6pm (beginners/gentle/stretch).

I teach outdoors when the weather allows.

  • 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....
