Yoga classes

I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. My classes are open to all, from beginners to more experienced students, and taught in a relatively slow 'hatha' style. In addition, I run two ultra gentle classes aimed at older students and anyone with health issues looking for extra support and encouragement.

If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one) in my home studio in north Oxford (or your home by arrangement) on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.

On Mondays, I offer two classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm, in roomy studios: all levels welcome. Drop in any week. 

On Tuesdays, I offer an ultra gentle class  in Summertown at 4.15pm 'yoga for all', and a class in the city centre for Oxford University staff and friends at 6pm.

On Wednesdays, I offer three classes in Abingdon: an ultra gentle class at 3.45pm, plus two after work classes at 5.15 and 7.15pm.  Booking is essential for these small group sessions in the Sanctuary at St Ethelwolds House where numbers are limited to eight. 

See classes page for more.

DATES After a break at Whitsun from 27-31 May, the next term runs from Monday 2 June until the end of July. For more details click Timetable of classes

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.

Cost Drop in  £10, but I offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance. If you are interested in one-to-one, or small group teaching, please get in touch, especially if you have health issues. Email [email protected] or call 0771 520 7784

Special rates for students in full time education who come with a parent. I have four mums and daughters currently coming to class. Dads and sons where are you? Come and try a class!

  • How yoga can help us sleep

    Yoga isn’t just beneficial for improving overall flexibility and strength, it can help you sleep better—and might be beneficial to suffers from insomnia.

  • How to stretch those tight hips

    We all know we spend too much time sitting. It’s something I talk about in class often enough. A sedentary lifestyle can lead tight hip muscles in particular, as well as to obesity and poor general health. But, if you have tight muscles from sitting (and I’m thinking in particular...


  • Why strengthening your core benefits your yoga

    We all know about the ‘core’, but how many of us are using it to fully benefit our yoga? It’s hard to remember to engage those deep inner muscles when we are thinking about where to put our feet, or how to use the breath in a yoga class. The...


  • Looking after your spine

    In this week’s class I included lots of gentle movements for the spine, with the aim of both warming up for stronger poses, and keeping the joints and surrounding muscles, ligaments and tendons mobile. While many people are drawn to yoga because they ‘can do it’, others are often put...


  • What does yoga have to do with the moon?

    We may all have dog days from time to time. But what about Moon Days? Some dedicated yoga practitioners, in styles such as Ashtanga, have a day off on full and new moon days each month.  They believe the moon has such a strong effect on our energies, it is...
