Yoga classes

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).

Beginners

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    

 It's never too late to start whatever your level of fitness, or age  Read more about yoga here.

  • Look after your best FEETure

    We spend most of our lives in our heads, thinking and doing. But spare a thought for your feet – how are they right now? Tucked away inside shoes? Immobile since you last sat down?  How often do you get to walk barefoot, or challenge your ankles on an uneven...


  • How to let go after a busy day

    Getting started on a home practice can be a challenge. One way to make that transition from a busy day is by lying down and simply following your breath. Breathing exercises not only help us calm the mind, but also help improve the way we breathe, strengthening the muscles of...


  • Use the breath to de-stress

    Dealing with the stress of everyday life plays a crucial part in staying well, both mentally and physically. We all know that the mind and body are interlinked, and this linking (or yoking) of the two in yoga practice helps make it distinctive from other forms of exercise. Indeed, the...


  • Ease is as important as effort

    One thing I’m sure we all find easier is to engage muscles – to do something active like a posture such as downward dog -  than to relax or meditate. While we can be itching to work out on the mat, we can then find it hard to give ourselves...
