Yoga classes

I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness, and welcome beginners. I teach both in the studio (from September ) and online using Zoom. 

I am now back in the studio at St Ethelwolds in Abingdon, on Mondays at 2pm,  and Wednesdays at 5.15pm and 7pm. In mid-October. I launch two new classes in October: A  slow and gentle class on Tuesday afternoons at 3.30pm focussing on movement and flexibility, and on Tuesday evenings at 6pm an after work stretch and relax suitable for all levels. 

I will continue to teach online using Zoom on Mondays at 6pm.

  • 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...

    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...
