Yoga classes

I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. My classes are open to all, from beginners to more experienced students, and taught in a relatively slow 'hatha' style - beginners are always welcome. Two of my classes are ultra slow and gentle, and are aimed at older students and anyone with health issues looking for extra support and encouragement.

If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one) in my home studio in north Oxford (or your home by arrangement) on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.

On Mondays, I offer two classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm, in roomy studios: all levels welcome. Drop in any week. 

On Tuesdays, I offer a new ultra slow and gentle class in Summertown at 2.30pm 'yoga for health', plus a class in the city centre for Oxford University staff and friends at 6pm.

On Wednesdays, I offer three classes in Abingdon: a  ultra  slow and gentle class at 3.45pm, plus two after work classes at 5.15 and 7.15pm.  Booking is essential for these small group sessions in the Sanctuary at St Ethelwolds House where numbers are limited to eight. 

DATES

The autumn term starts on Monday 9th September and runs every week up to Christmas.   For more details click Timetable of classes

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.

Cost Drop in  £10, but I offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance. If you are interested in one-to-one, or small group teaching, please get in touch, especially if you have health issues. Email yoga@lucytennyson.com or call 0771 520 7784

Special rates for students in full time education who come with a parent. I have four mums and daughters currently coming to class. Dads and sons where are you? Come and try a class!

  • Why stand on one leg

    When world-famous yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar visited the San Diego Zoo in 1990, he and a group of yoga teachers accompanying him stood watching the flamingos, many of them standing one one leg. He is reported to have pointed to one bird as it balanced on one foot, beak tucked...


  • Strengthening bones to fight osteoporosis

    You cannot see or feel your bones losing strength and you don’t get any signs or symptoms unless bones break. It’s called the “silent disease” because you may not know that you have osteoporosis until a strain, bump, or fall causes a bone to break.  Yoga blog 7 March 2015...


  • Taking it easy can be hard

    Welcome to 2015 and hopefully a resolve to do more yoga! No doubt most of us – myself included – have made resolutions for the new year. The solstice, when we swing from the shortening days of the old year into the promise of spring, is a time of change....


  • The value of backbends

    Getting a energy fix on the mat - yoga blog 27 November  I have to admit that I often find myself reluctant to do backbends, other than the ‘easier’ ones such as bridge and cobra. Despite their many benefits – great for sounded shoulders (blame years of desk work) and...


  • Don't ignore that twinge

    Learning to use our ‘mula bandha’ - yoga blog 5 December Listen to that twinge - it might be the yoga! You might think that yoga is a safe and gentle form of exercise. Not always so… we can overdo things in a yoga class just as in anything else....
