Yoga has much to offer everyone, and contrary to what you might think, you don’t need a super flexible body to get started. It is a strengthening and deeply relaxing practice that everyone can enjoy – and one that will make you feel better immediately.
I’ve been teaching a gentle form of Hatha Yoga in and around Ipswich since 1993. I’d like to more people to be able to enjoy the huge benefits of this simple form of exercise, so in these articles, I’ll be encouraging you to try out new ways of moving and stretching.

Welcome to Yoga!
