Yoga classes

ONLINE YOGA

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.

Beginners

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.

My classes

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.

ONLINE YOGA

Mondays Level 1  12pm-1pm 

Tuesdays Level 2  5pm-6pm

Wednesdays Level 3  6pm-7pm

DATES

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.

  • 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...


  • Finding new ways of sitting

    We explored various ways of sitting on the floor this week. Sitting cross-legged is an important part of yoga practice and is commonly used for breathing and sitting postures. But it requires considerable flexibility in the back thighs, back of the pelvis, and inner thighs, as well as external rotation...


  • Use yoga to bring peace of mind into your life

    I can’t be the only one switching off from the news these days. I think it’s also a time of year when we also tend to look inward and worry more, despite all the bright urgency of those new year resolutions. It takes consistent effort to keep worry at bay,...
