Current yoga classes

I teach three online yoga classes a week and two Dumfries classes a week.

Read on for more info about my classes and how to book.

Online classes

  • Monday 5.45-7pm – Intermediate yoga online – ideal for those wishing to develop their yoga or add yoga to an existing fitness programme e.g. runners/cyclists and other sports
  • Tuesday 7.30-8.30am – Early bird online – a relatively gentle class, suitable for yoga beginners
  • Thursday 12-12.45pm – Midday movement online – a relatively gentle class, suitable for yoga beginners

All online classes can be done ‘live’ with me on the time & day specified, or later whenever you want. Just book in advance to get the link.

Dumfries in-person classes

  • Wednesday 6-7pm – Intermediate yoga – ideal for those wishing to develop their yoga or add yoga to an existing fitness programme e.g. runners/cyclists and other sports
  • Friday 5.30-6.30pm – Relax and recharge yoga – this class will leave you feeling relaxed yet recharged, perfect to wind down at the end of the week, suitable for all levels including beginners

General booking info – applies to online and Dumfries classes

All classes must be booked in advance – up to one hour before the class starts. Refund policy: I can provide a refund if you cancel your booking with more than 24 hours notice. Or it can be transferred to another week/class. This applies to online and Dumfries classes.

Multiple bookings per transactions. If you want to book for several weeks in advance you can now do this for as many classes as you wish, and can also mix up the classes e.g. 3 x intermediate classes, 1 x early bird. On the booking form use the ‘add another booking’ option when you have entered your name and contact details. This system also works for the Dumfries classes (and you can mix and match online and Dumfries classes in one booking transaction.)

Online class info

No special software is needed to take part in the online classes – the classes are streamed in YouTube Live.

If you can’t make the day/time of an online classes but want to take the class, book anyway so that you will be sent the link, and then you can do the class at a more convenient time for you. You don’t share your screen in YouTube Live so you don’t have to worry about anyone seeing your room, your yoga postures etc.

Once you have made your booking you will be sent the link for the private YouTube class before the advertised class time. If it’s half an hour before the class and you don’t have the email link, contact me asap.

Top Tip: If you join a few minutes after the live start time, or during the streaming live class, ‘rewind’ the video so that you start at the beginning!

A weekly class pass is available for all three online classes (this saves you a bit money!).

Dumfries classes info

The Dumfries classes are limited to 8 people per class (increase from 6 people, from 9th August).

For the in-person classes in Dumfries, please read the accompanying guidelines (revised August 2021) before you book, so that you understand how the class will operate within Covid-19 regulations. Rest assured that both myself and the venue (Studio 3, Lovers Lane Studios), are following all the necessary guidelines to ensure that the in-person classes are safe and still enjoyable. Masks are worn on entry/exit, but are not worn whilst you are on your mat.

We are not allowed to share equipment like mats and blocks, so please bring your own yoga mat, or contact me in advance if you would like to hire one on a temporary basis. I have new blocks you can buy from me if you wish.
