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 September ) and online using Zoom. 

I am now back in the studio at St Ethelwolds in Abingdon, on Mondays at 2pm,  and Wednesdays at 5.15pm and 7pm. In mid-October. I launch two new classes in October: A  slow and gentle class on Tuesday afternoons at 3.30pm focussing on movement and flexibility, and on Tuesday evenings at 6pm an after work stretch and relax suitable for all levels. 

I will continue to teach online using Zoom on Mondays at 6pm.

  • 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...
