Yoga classes

I am now on holiday for August. I am teaching some outdoor classes on an ad hoc basis on Mondays and Tuesdays in Abingdon and Oxford.

My teaching term restarts on 14th September, and I hope to be able to offer you a choice of online classes using  Zoom, and indoor studio classes run according to Government regulations. 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).

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.

From 14th September I am planning to teach as follows:

ONLINE YOGA Mondays 7-8.15pm 

STUDIO DATES  Abingdon on Mondays 12.30, and on Wednesdays at 5pm and 7pm; and in Oxford on Tuesdays at 6pm    

 It's never too late to start whatever your level of fitness, or age  Read more about yoga here.

    Yoga blog 18 May 2015 Over the last few weeks we’ve been thinking about the benefits of squatting. However, most of us find a full squat, with the heels down and feet facing forward in the direction of the knees, very difficult (me included!). It helps to place a yoga...


  • Look after your knees

    Yoga can ask a lot of our knees. After a day of sitting, we can suddenly demand that they bend to take us to the floor, and fold into cross legged. Or, more extremely, into hero pose (virasana) where we kneel and bring the bottom down to the floor -...


  • Help for stiff shoulders

    It’s easy to hold a lot of tension in our shoulders without realising it. Quite often I find I have tightened up when driving, or writing emails on the computer. Take time out now and then to consciously sit up, bringing the shoulders down away from the ears, and squeezing...


  • 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...
