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.
