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.

  • Now is the time you need to practise!

    Now - just when you might feel busier than ever - is the time you need to find time for a yoga session. As well as stressed, it’s easy to get over-tired, and then become more vulnerable to bugs and colds as our immune systems take a dip. Class numbers...


  • How to practise inversions safely

    Forward bends and down dog are both Inversions, as are stronger poses such as shoulder stand, or legs up the wall, when the legs are held higher than the heart. The benefits are said to come from the affect on venous return – the way de-oxygenated blood drains back through...


  • Key tips for good posture

    None of us are born perfect, and none of us are the perfect shape. But we can all work towards finding the perfect posture to suit each of us. The spine does an amazing job in enabling us to walk upright rather than using all-fours, and we often pay the...


  • Why we end with a twist

    You may have noticed that we tend to do twists later on in class, sometimes just before relaxation as we did this week. This is because they are neutralising poses, helping the body to recover from a sequence of stronger poses, such as cobra and wide legged forward bends this...


  • Poses for sleep and back care

    This week, we enjoyed a calming session of deep stretches designed to help us relax and prepare for a good night’s sleep. You can do these any time in the evening to suit you, and before an evening meal if you tend to eat later. Afterwards, I would try and...
