Yoga classes

I offer a choice of online classes using  Zoom, or indoor studio classes with limited numbers set by the venues to meet current Covid requirements. All are welcome especially beginners and those looking for good stretch and chance to relax after work. I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness. If y0u have specific health issues,  or would like individual classes tailored to suit you, I am also able to offer one to one Yoga Therapy sessions.

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.  It's never too late to start whatever your level of fitness, or age  Read more about yoga here.

  • Is shoulderstand safe to do?


  • Those feet are made for walking

    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...


  • Deep stretches from within

    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....


  • Chair pose is no slouch

    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...
