At the moment all my private and group classes are suspended due to Covid 19. Live classes at Morley and Pudsey Leisure Centres as part of the Active Leeds programme are running but these are all suspended due to national lockdown until further notice. I have been working in these centres as I can be certain that they are able to operate within the government guidelines as they have the capacity to implement social distancing, ventilation and separate entrances and exits for all participants.
On the other hand, the current situation has given us a wonderful opportunity to connect from the comfort of our own home and I am really enjoying teaching online. You can also join my Zoom classes and live meditations on my Facebook page. All classes are run on a donation basis at present, so you just pay what you can afford. Subscribe to this page for more information and message me for Zoom links.

I usually run local classes at The Ballroom, Chapeltown, Pudsey; St James the Great Church Hall, Galloway Lane, Woodhall and Apex Boutique Gym, Lidget Hill and hope these will resume in due course. If you normally attend my classes, let me just say how much I miss you! Why not join me online?
It's slow and mindful, aiming to help you to listen to your body and create a sense of peace and relaxation for body and mind, and you don't have to be young or thin to do it! Yoga is called 'practice' because we do just that and we get better at it in time. Everything we do can be modified to suit you and I am a great believer in using props. After time, it will get more familiar and your body will also tell you what you need to do. Hatha yoga is the 'mother' of all yoga types you will read about and so I that's what I teach. You'll learn how to do a pose before creating flowing sequences (vinyasa) and I have a strong emphasis on working safely and working with the breath. True yoga is for the body, mind and soul so I include yogic themes and use of mudra (hand gestures). There are always opportunities to take it deeper.
I specialise in mindfulness and beginners' courses and many of the students who started this way have stayed with me to continue their yoga journeys. I run gentle chair- based classes in the community, Yoga Nidra and restorative yoga sessions. I am also available to teach yoga in your workplace or home; I can design classes to suit the needs of individuals and small groups so if this is something you are drawn to, please contact me here for more information.
