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.

  • Why going upsidedown can be bad for your eyes

    My approach to yoga is to try to ensure that the practice we do together is safe.  The level of serious injury caused by yoga is thought to be low - a 2014 analysis of 24,000 U.S. yoga goers (published in the International Journal of Yoga) found only 1 per...


  • What is Feldenkrais?

    Unlike yoga, the Feldenkrais Method does not require any flexibility, nor does it involve stretching or holding any positions. It also does not require any practice to learn postures. Instead of repeating and holding set poses as in yoga, in a Feldenkrais class participants explore gentle simple movements, which at...


  • How can yoga help us heal ?

    Can yoga speed up the healing process after an accident or fall? I’d like to think so, of course. And falls can happen to any one of us, at any time. Children seem to bounce back, but as we get older our powers of recovery start to wane. My recent...


  • Kneeling and standing flows

    This week, we practised some kneeling and standing flow sequences. Once you feel confident with the basic postures - child, cat, puppy dog, downward dog - you can sequence them together. Start your practice with some simple breathing, either lying or sitting, focussing on deepening and working on a three...
