Yoga classes

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.

  • 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...
