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.
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.
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.
Mondays Level 1 12pm-1pm
Tuesdays Level 2 5pm-6pm
Wednesdays Level 3 6pm-7pm
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.

We all know we spend too much time sitting. It’s something I talk about in class often enough. A sedentary lifestyle can lead tight hip muscles in particular, as well as to obesity and poor general health. But, if you have tight muscles from sitting (and I’m thinking in particular...
We all know about the ‘core’, but how many of us are using it to fully benefit our yoga? It’s hard to remember to engage those deep inner muscles when we are thinking about where to put our feet, or how to use the breath in a yoga class. The...
In this week’s class I included lots of gentle movements for the spine, with the aim of both warming up for stronger poses, and keeping the joints and surrounding muscles, ligaments and tendons mobile. While many people are drawn to yoga because they ‘can do it’, others are often put...
We may all have dog days from time to time. But what about Moon Days? Some dedicated yoga practitioners, in styles such as Ashtanga, have a day off on full and new moon days each month. They believe the moon has such a strong effect on our energies, it is...
