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 mid June) and online using Zoom. I am now teaching Monday - Wednesday up to the end July.
I returned to the studio in mid-June at St Ethelwolds in Abingdon, with a new afternoon class at 2pm, focussing on movement and flexibility which welcomes beginners. The popular Wednesday evening classes start at 5.15pm and 7pm. Numbers are currently restricted to six. I teach online using Zoom on Mondays at 6pm (all levels), and Tuesdays 5-6pm (beginners/gentle/stretch).
I teach outdoors when the weather allows.

The shoulder often ends up on the receiving end of what’s happening elsewhere in the body (and mind), in particular the chest, upper and middle back. Too many repetitive movements, such as using a computer mouse, or a sport such as swimming or tennis, or even too many downward dogs...
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...
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...
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...
