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.

  • 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...


  • How to start a home practice

    One of the most common things I hear is how hard you all find it to practise at home. I totally understand how you feel –  I used to find it hard to get down to it too, and it’s only since I began teaching that it’s become part of...


  • How to salute the sun

     This year, the summer solstice 21 June was declared as the International Day of Yoga by the United Nations General Assembly on December 11, 2014. The push for this came from prime minister Modi of India, but in New York, the event has been celebrated for 13 years with thousands...
