During the current pandemic I am teaching a variety of yoga classes using Zoom and physical hall classes, with the aim to meet all student needs - for current information see my page - COVID-19: yoga & chant update.
improve your sense of well being, in body, mind and spirit.
Fun and friendly, these are yoga classes where you
don't have to be super flexible or have a bionic body.
SUMMER TERM: May 3 - July 15
"I want to tell you that I really look forward to your online yoga classes every week and feel better for them.
It's easier than going out to go to yoga!
We are very lucky that you come into our homes every week to give your expertise,
so thank you very much"
Jilly Brockway, Frome
" The Zoom yoga classes are so much more enjoyable and powerful than i expected. In fact, in some ways, I find them more powerful than when we meet, maybe because I am able to put 100% into the practice - physically, mentally and from the heart - it is much more of a meditative practice."
"I love being in your class.
By the end I feel awash with
relaxation & happy hormones."
"The key to opening is trust and love."
"It is important to honour our vulnerability and recognize that we each need a trusting situation in which to work with the deepest feelings that arise within us...
We can melt our difficulties with love. We can't batter them down, but we can dissolve them."

Summer term theme: WEALTH
summer is a time of plenty, abundance and richness. Following a period of scarcity on all fronts, I invite you to join me to celebrate the rich wealth of our humanity. We will use the symbolisation & science of trees to focus on different aspects of ourselves: faith, love, interconnectedness, peace, the light within, breath and more
£82.50 for a 10 week term
What to expect
yoga teacher, Elaine Marie Ewens will guide you through a series of postures, plus breathing, sound and visualisation practices. By individual attention she will aim to ensure you stretch and strengthen yourself in a safe and healthy way.
a different theme is explored each term – for example balance or happiness - creating a light hearted but insightful entry into the world of yoga and yourself.
If there is another lock down or restriction of use of community hall spaces due to COVID; the physical classes will have to revert to Zoom for the remainder of the term.
I will offer a free class to assist everyone with coming over to Zoom.
I will be unable to offer refunds/credits/transfers regardless of circumstance - thank you for your understanding.
the style of yoga is in the Krishnamacharya/Desikachar tradition where the practise is modified to fit the individual.
The breath is key, intending to create a serene, meditative state in the practitioner. For more information: Yoga Approach
no prior experience of yoga is needed; beginners are really welcome. Both men and women are encouraged and the classes are suitable for most abilities and ages.
New students can start mid term -
