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.

Our fascia is the network of connective tissue, primarily collagen, that runs throughout the body, attaching, stabilising and enclosing all our muscles and organs. Similar to ligaments and tendons in structure, it differs in that whereas ligaments join one bone to another bone, and tendons muscle to bone, fascia is...
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...
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...
