Zoom classes every Wednesday (usually held at Chalfont St Peter Community Centre)
Thank you for your interest. I am currently offering 2 Yoga classes which are on Wednesday evening at at 6.30pm and one at 8pm. The classes are usually held at Chalfont St Peter community Hall and are suspended until the end of lockdown.
However, we successfully managed to keep the classes running during the last lockdown period and I am delighted to be continuing with them again.
Continuing with the weekly zoom classes with you have been such a huge help to me Suzy thank you. They have been invaluable to look after my scrunched up body (from being at home so much) and sometimes my shaky mind – Sarah G.

Working at your own pace and level.
All levels are welcome to my classes. I will help you to reach your own personal goal, whatever that may be for you. Many people attend yoga for mental and emotional wellbeing as well as for physical strength, stamina and flexibility. Yoga will give you all of these with regular focused practice. You simply work as your own pace. In my experience as a teacher of over 18 years, all levels of fitness work well together in a class.
For this reason I limit the numbers on each zoom sessions to a maximum of 15 students, to ensure that each one of students still receives personal attention and correction where needed. This is a very important part of my teaching. I like to ensure that you are always working safely and reaching your own personal goals and level of fitness and ability.
Make Yoga a sacred place for you to be each week.
Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.
My style and background
I have been teaching yoga for over 18 years and completed my 2 year intense 500-hour training programme at the Ruth White School of Yoga. The style of yoga that I was taught was Iyengar, which is a form of Hatha Yoga with a stronger emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the static postures. My Yoga Teacher Ruth trained with Iyengar himself and I feel privileged to have had such a thorough and excellent training master myself.
Yoga Heals The Body – my own story.
15 years ago I suffered severe back pain and was unable to even drive my car for a while. The ligaments supporting my sacroiliac joint were slack and desperately needed strengthening. I received treatment form our own Anatomy and Physiology teacher, Gary Carter from our training course.
As a body therapist, Gary was influenced by the work of Vanda Scaravelli who also trained with the brilliant yoga master Iyengar in Pune, India. Gary taught me how to develop Full Body Core Strength. I learned to work from the inside out. The spine was the main focus. I learned what I had been doing incorrectly that caused my weakness in my back. This took time and patience but I learned more form this injury than anything else. I learned also about the fundamental Attitude to my yoga practice. The Asana part of Yoga. Every pose named in Sanskrit ends with the word Asana (Tadasana, Mountain pose, Triconasana, Triangle and so on.) Asana in Sanskrit means attitude, poise, awareness. What I corrected mostly in every one of my yoga postures was my Attitude. I teach my students to work from this place. And from this place we reconnect to ourselves. Therein lies the joy of yoga and brings your health and inner peace and happiness.
What to expect in one of my classes
I invite potential students of all ages, gender and mixed abilities. I encourage everyone to work at their own pace and to their own capacity. The classes are friendly and everyone supports each other. The class begins with a gentle relaxation and breathing, leading into some muscle warming stretching and floor postures.
We then work with the dynamic standing postures, using blocks and belts to help you to hold them in perfect alignment and work the muscles and joints most effectively. Some of my students enjoy the inversion postures and are encouraged to develop their practice in this way.
We complete the session with some restorative sitting postures, some breathing techniques and then finally some deep relaxation.
