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.

  • 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...
