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.
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.
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.
Mondays Level 1 12pm-1pm
Tuesdays Level 2 5pm-6pm
Wednesdays Level 3 6pm-7pm
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.

I’ve been stressing the importance of improving the strength of our feet and ankles in recent weeks. Encased in shoes, our feet and toes are little used most of the time, causing the muscles to weaken, which in turn puts more pressure on our knees and hips when we practise...
Bridge pose is one of those yoga asanas that everyone can practise together regardless of their level of fitness. I like to introduce it near the end of a class when the muscles of the back and legs are nice and warm, and we can get maximum benefit from it....
Rather than focussing on individual muscles, when practising yoga we should think holistically - that is, involve the whole of us in each movement – mind, body and breath. Chair pose – Utkatasana – is a good example of this. We need steady deep breaths to work harder, we are...
I’m often asked whether I can recommend any yoga weekends or retreats. It’s a growing market and a Google search will throw up a huge choice. I would suggest trying a UK based weekend to start, to see if you enjoy the intensity of twice a day yoga/meditation. Vegetarian food...
