I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. My classes are open to all, from beginners to more experienced students, and taught in a relatively slow 'hatha' style - beginners are always welcome. Two of my classes are ultra slow and gentle, and are aimed at older students and anyone with health issues looking for extra support and encouragement.
If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one) in my home studio in north Oxford (or your home by arrangement) on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.
On Mondays, I offer two classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm, in roomy studios: all levels welcome. Drop in any week.
On Tuesdays, I offer a small ultra slow and gentle class, where you can use a chair if you wish, in Summertown at 2.30pm. The aim is to work on keeping mobile, and come along any time. In the evenings, I offer a class in the city centre for Oxford University staff and friends at 6pm.
On Wednesdays, I offer three classes in Abingdon: a ultra slow and gentle class at 3.45pm, plus two after work classes at 5.15 and 7.15pm. Booking is essential for these small group sessions in the Sanctuary at St Ethelwolds House where numbers are limited to eight.
The new term for 2020 starts on Monday 6th January and runs up to 25 March, with a one week half term break 17-21 February. For more details click Timetable of classes
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.
Cost Drop in £10, but I offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance. If you are interested in one-to-one, or small group teaching, please get in touch, especially if you have health issues. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0771 520 7784
Special rates for students in full time education who come with a parent. I have four mums and daughters currently coming to class. Dads and sons where are you? Come and try a class!

Counting is one of the easiest and most gentle ways of introducing a little meditation into our lives.Some of you may be put off by the idea of meditation, believing it more the province of Buddhists and yoga teachers; but in fact, it is a form of relaxation most...
Many flow sequences such as salute to the sun can put a lot of strain on the wrists and arms. The standing flow sequence I taught recently can be taken very slowly and gently, and requires no downward dog movements. It was put together by a well regarded yoga teacher...

The Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) is a mainstay of yoga classes everywhere. It consists of a linked sequence of asanas, moving from standing, through a lunge to downward dog, plank and cobra, and back up to standing. Although quite often offered as a warming up sequence, it should never be...
‘ve been going to yoga classes for around 40 years, but I’d never realised until now there is something called yoga massage. Having just had my first ever treatment, I can say it’s quite extraordinary to have experienced a completely passive form of yoga. Instead of stepping, twisting and bending...
