Yoga classes

ONLINE YOGA

I am now teaching three classes a week online using the Zoom application. It's easy to use and if you have done some yoga before drop me an email using the contact form and I'll send you details.

Beginners

If you are a complete beginner or haven't done much recently, and like to try a 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.

My classes

Normally, I teach in Abingdon and Oxford, and all are welcome from beginners to more experienced students. I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style. If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one).

The levels below are just a guide, as all of my classes are taken at a relatively slow pace, especially suited to the Zoom format where I limit numbers so I can still give tips and advice to you individually as we go.

ONLINE YOGA

Mondays Level 1  12pm-1pm 

Tuesdays Level 2  5pm-6pm

Wednesdays Level 3  6pm-7pm

DATES

This timetable will run through May and June. It may be possible if the current regulations change to teach outdoors in the summer.

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.

  • Try these balances at home

    In last week’s class, we began on the floor with a strange of stretches to open out, and lengthen the sides of the body. We came onto all fours for some flowing cat/puppy/dog and updog moves. We then worked on the stages of camel (a kneeling backbend), and then a...


  • What to do if you hurt your back

    One evening recently I came home after a yoga class and felt a dull ache in my lower back. I think everyone experiences a back twinge after yoga at some point. As in any form of exercise, in a yoga class we can overdo things, move awkwardly, or just attempt...


  • Does yoga keep us young?

    Ask Google ‘does yoga keep you young?’ and you’ll find no shortage of online articles along the lines of ‘top ten poses for longevity’. With many diseases now curable, most of us in the west are becoming increasingly worried about growing old and living healthily into our later years. This...


  • Try this sequence to relax

    In last week’s class we enjoyed some slower largely floor based stretches, a contrast to the week before which included two standing flow sequences.  If you would like to try some at home, we started with a lying relaxation and pranayama. Breathing in and out to a count of three...


  • A hands free standing sequence

    This week we practised a Hands-Free Warrior sequence developed by yoga teacher and writer Leslie Kaminoff. Author of the best selling guide Yoga Anatomy, he is a strong advocate of use of the breath, and a good knowledge of anatomy in yoga. Kaminoff  works in the tradition of Indian teacher...
