I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. My classes are open to all, from beginners to more experienced students, and taught in a relatively slow 'hatha' style. In addition, I run two ultra gentle classes aimed at older students and anyone with health issues looking for extra support and encouragement.
If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one) in my home studio in north Oxford (or your home by arrangement) on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.
On Mondays, I offer two classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm, in roomy studios: all levels welcome. Drop in any week.
On Tuesdays, I offer an ultra gentle class in Summertown at 4.15pm 'yoga for all', and a class in the city centre for Oxford University staff and friends at 6pm.
On Wednesdays, I offer three classes in Abingdon: an ultra gentle class at 3.45pm, plus two after work classes at 5.15 and 7.15pm. Booking is essential for these small group sessions in the Sanctuary at St Ethelwolds House where numbers are limited to eight.
DATES After a break at Whitsun from 27-31 May, the next term runs from Monday 2 June until the end of July. For more details click Timetable of classes
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.
Cost Drop in £10, but I offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance. If you are interested in one-to-one, or small group teaching, please get in touch, especially if you have health issues. Email [email protected] or call 0771 520 7784
Special rates for students in full time education who come with a parent. I have four mums and daughters currently coming to class. Dads and sons where are you? Come and try a class!

Pranayama involves working with the breath.

It’s a time of rapid change when almost overnight we seem to move from winter to spring. We’re reflecting that in our practice in our three classes leading up to the March 21 Equinox, when the day becomes equal in length to the night. We started with sun salutations to...
