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.

  • Thinking of a yoga holiday?

    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...


  • Yoga in Goa

    I’ve just returned from two weeks in India, which included a week at the Bamboo Yoga Retreat in Patnam Beach, Goa. It was hot, the beaches gorgeous, and the yoga full-on. I’m returning home for a rest! Here are a few pix.


  • A mobilisation series for the joints

    We have over 200 joints in the body, and good health depends on keeping them moving. Most – for example, the knees, fingers and hips - are synovial. The joints are covered in smooth tissue, cartilage and synovium, with a fluid in-between so the bones do not rub together.  But...


  • A salutation for the full moon

    Most of us have done or heard of the sun salutations, ideally practised in the morning, to awaken the body and create energy and heat. The modern interpretation of Surya Namaskar is as a dynamic sequence of poses which on a physical level builds stamina and strength and connects strong...
