Yoga classes

I offer a choice of online classes using  Zoom, or indoor studio classes with limited numbers set by the venues to meet current Covid requirements. All are welcome especially beginners and those looking for good stretch and chance to relax after work. I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness. If y0u have specific health issues,  or would like individual classes tailored to suit you, I am also able to offer one to one Yoga Therapy sessions.

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

  • A soothing sequence for a stiff back

    Most of us suffer from lower back pain at some point, perhaps after lifting something heavy, gardening, or sitting at a computer for too long. Even yoga can set off a dull ache if we push ourselves too hard. Last week’s class took a restorative approach, thinking of back care...


  • How to start practising at home

    It might sound obvious, but one of the biggest obstacles to home practice is finding space. This was even an issue several centuries ago. The classic 15th century Indian text on yoga the Hatha Yoga Pradipika is one of the major sources on how to practise yoga for modern day...


  • Think more about your feet

    Last week we focussed on the autumn equinox, when night and day are equal in length, marking the change in seasons from summer into autumn. Reflecting on that in our yoga practice, we explored balance, and how we can become more grounded to prepare for the winter months. Where better...


  • Chair yoga - at home, in the office ... for everybody

    In this week’s class I focussed on the hips, beginning lying on our backs, and raising a straight leg up to the ceiling. We then worked slowly using a belt, to then take the leg out to the side, and then in the other direction across the body.  The aim...
