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.

  • 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,...


  • 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...
