Yoga classes

I teach both online using  Zoom, and in the studio with limited numbers set by the venues to meet current Covid requirements.  I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness, and welcome beginners. If y0u have specific health issues,  or would like individual classes tailored to suit you, I can offer one to one Yoga Therapy sessions, either in person or via Zoom.

The next term of seven classes runs from Monday 2nd November until Thursday 24 December 2020

ALL CLASSES NOW ONLINE on Zoom DUE TO CURRENT LOCK DOWN 

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. I personally find Zoom a  good alternative to studio classes.  Read more about yoga here.

  • 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...


  • Moon salutations

    Some people like to cultivate yogic practices that are more in line with the lunar cycles and nature - the issue of the moon and its effect on mood has long been discussed in both the science and yoga worlds. In India, the full moon is referred to as the...


  • Stretch into a Chair pose

    Last week, after a standing warm up, we came into Utkatasana, or chair pose. Here’s a reminder if you would like to try at home. Begin with a standing warm up, keep it soft and flowing as we did last week. Then come to standing in Tadasana. Inhale and raise...


  • Warm up from toe to top

    We all need to do more to look after our feet. Proper alignment of the feet is key to good yoga practice – not only keeping us balanced and safely grounded to the floor – but also good for the health of our feet in general. Proper alignment includes grounding...
