Classes are going back ONLINE

Dear yoga community,

I have thought long and hard about how to continue with these new corona restrictions going into effect tomorrow – students are contacting me with concern about being guaranteed that the yoga classes are taught in a safe space, and at the same time I know that a number of our community have chosen not to get vaccinated.

For this reason I have decided to go back to teaching online for now. The same schedule will continue:

Saturdays 10.30 – 12.15
Tuesdays 18.30 – 20.00
Mondays 9.00 – 10.30

…and it will be at the same link as always…to receive the link message me at 0651764621 or

I hope you understand this and I hope we will see each other soon online!

With love and respect,

“The ripples of the kind heart are the highest blessings of the universe.” Amit Ray
