I am now on holiday for August. I am teaching some outdoor classes on an ad hoc basis on Mondays and Tuesdays in Abingdon and Oxford.
My teaching term restarts on 14th September, and I hope to be able to offer you a choice of online classes using Zoom, and indoor studio classes run according to Government regulations. 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).
If you are a complete beginner or haven't done much recently, and like to try a Zoom 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.
From 14th September I am planning to teach as follows:
ONLINE YOGA Mondays 7-8.15pm
STUDIO DATES Abingdon on Mondays 12.30, and on Wednesdays at 5pm and 7pm; and in Oxford on Tuesdays at 6pm

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...
