Zoom Sessions open 10 minutes before official start time to allow for setting up and chat.  Presentation classes are taught without stopping and (within safety limits) participants are welcome to do their own thing without being observed or corrected.  
Interactive classes are more personal and I may stop to watch the participants and offer individual corrections and adjustments.  It is up to participants to choose whether they have their camera on or not.  However, I recommend cameras on for interactive classes in order to get maximum benefit from the session.

Tuesday Outdoor Yoga in Lodge Farm Park

AFTERNOON       -    1.00 to 2.00pm                            

Booking requested so I can continue to manage social distancing - although number no longer have to be limited.  No charge for children under 14 (accompanied by a paying adult).  

Please bring your own mat and wear layers you can easily take off/put on.  Classes are usually under the trees in Lodge Farm Park where there is shade and limited cover from light rain.  In heavy rain we can use the bandstand in Raphael Park (over the road).  If that happens I'll text to let you know.

One to Ones

This service is available for individuals, family groups or friends.

Why not have a Zoom Yoga Party and split the cost?
Email [email protected] to arrange a free consultation/chat.  Also ask about Garden 1-1s which are now possible either in my garden or yours by arrangement.

I take bookings for individual instruction, small groups and one off sessions.  Why not get together with a few friends or work colleagues and have a yoga party?  Great for clubs, hen nights and wellness events.

Popular options from traditional mat yoga include Chair Yoga, Mindfulness and Laughter Yoga.

Charges negotiable depending on location and requirements but as a rough guide:
From £30ph for regular bookings
From £50ph for one off sessions
