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.

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...
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...
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...
