Yoga classes

I teach both online using  Zoom, and in the studio with limited numbers set by the venues to meet current Covid requirements.  I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness, and welcome beginners. If y0u have specific health issues,  or would like individual classes tailored to suit you, I can offer one to one Yoga Therapy sessions, either in person or via Zoom.

The next term of seven classes runs from Monday 2nd November until Thursday 24 December 2020

ALL CLASSES NOW ONLINE on Zoom DUE TO CURRENT LOCK DOWN 

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. I personally find Zoom a  good alternative to studio classes.  Read more about yoga here.

  • 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...


  • 108 sun salutations ... But why?

    Last week we practised an energising standing flow sequence incorporating the three warrior poses, as well as triangle, reverse triangle, and the head to knee and wide legged forward bends. Put together by the American teacher and writer Leslie Kaminoff, it works the legs strongly while encouraging the shoulders and...


  • Thinking about the tilt of the pelvis

    The tilt of our pelvic, either forward or back, has a major impact on our posture, and can lead over the long term to back, shoulder and neck pain. We explored this movement in class this week, first sitting cross legged on the floor, and then using blocks to help...


  • How long do I need to stretch for?

    This week we did a lot of knee hugs and leg stretches, with the aim of improving flexibility in our legs, and to a lesser extent the hips. We first warmed up the joints and muscles with a series of gentle warm ups on the floor.  A lot of yoga...
