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.

  • A tale of lost keys

    A tale of lost keys I was just off to my first class of the week when I realised  my house keys weren’t in their usual place. A frantic 10 minute fruitless search later, I had to rush out, leaving the door on the latch. On my return, deep breathing...


  • A focus on the spring

    Yoga blog 23 January 2016  In last week’s class, we thought about  how the spine moves when we are doing yoga . A typical yoga class will include forward bends and backbends, as well as side stretches and twists. I usually start with a warm up on the floor, encouraging...


  • A focus on Bridge posture

    Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge Pose) is a beginners/warm up backbend that strengthens the legs and hips, massages the spine, and opens the front of the chest. Rather than rush into and out of it, it’s worthwhile spending more time exploring this asana. Start with a baby Bridge To begin, lie...


  • Two postures for healthy backs

    Thread the needle After gently stretching out in child, cat and downward dog - keeping the back as straight as possible  - come onto all fours in table top. Open up to each side in a twist, first lifting the right arm and gazing to the right, trying to stack...


  • Breathing in calm

    Breathing lessons It wasn’t a very scientific experiment of course, but when I asked people in class this week to count their breath rate the results varied enormously – from 5 to 20. This fits in with the general average, which is around 12 breaths per minute. As we age...
