All in person classes are currently suspended and despite certain restrictions being lifted by the government we will not be returning to in person classes until September. I will be reviewing guidelines at this time and action a plan for taking us forward with the health and well being of our yoga community as my top priority.

Once you sign up for the classes you will receive a daily email with a link to join the class. If you don’t already have Zoom installed, you’ll get a prompt to do this, it’s VERY simple. It has proved to be a very clever medium to take yoga classes and I am grateful for the technology at this time enabling us to connect together on our mats.
£5 per class
£10 per workshop
Donation as you can afford
What you’ll need
A computer, tablet or sufficiently sized smart phone and a reliable internet connection to stream video.
Set yourself up where you have space to lay a mat down, have enough height to extend your hands upwards and enough width to take your arms out to the side. Have enough distance between yourself and your device so that I can see your practice.
Each class is different so it’s best to have the following things available just in case: Yoga mat, blocks, blanket, belt.
If you don’t have any of the above you can be inventive. Hard back books as blocks, towels as blankets, dressing gown ties or actual belts as belts! Yoga equipment can be relatively inexpensive so perhaps invest in some kit.
I am still hiring kit that we use at our local venues, and also various bits to buy, just ask!
Be ready to join 5-10 minutes before start time, so we can all say hello and sort out any technical hitches.
To join class just click the link in the email and it will take you to our Zoom portal.
When you arrive you will be in the “waiting room” and you can talk to each other using GALLERY VIEW. When the class begins you need to select SPEAKER VIEW.
Once everyone has arrived I will start the class promptly and I will mute your microphone.
If you wish to speak you can un-mute yourself.
If your internet connection is really poor you can turn your video off and switch to audio only; I won’t be able to see you but you will still see and hear me.
Please make payment for classes via BACS (details here)
Like many others, I was concerned that the move to online teaching would be difficult to create the same intensity and experience of in-person teaching but after these few months of online classes it’s fantastic to get feedback that they are being well received. If you are still unsure about this format (and you needn’t be !) here is a selection of feedback from students that may help you decide to join us.
I just want to drop you a line to say how amazing your zoom classes have been since the dreaded lockdown. Whilst ‘real’ classes will always win the ‘Zoom’ classes do have some benefits, mainly I can grunt & groan & moan without disturbing everyone else!
I have loved doing the zoom classes, especially Fridays restorative, it’s so good to be able to stay in the zone after the class and not have to get in the car!
Your zooms have been my saviour….eternally grateful for them and they will always be in the forefront of my positive memories of the lockdown.
