How is Hatha yoga different to other types of yoga?
Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation (dhyana).
Today, the term Hatha is used in such a broad way that it is difficult to know what a particular Hatha class will be like. My classes are relatively gentle, and great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed style where they hold poses for longer.
As I offer bespoke classes I always ask my students what they are looking for from a class and try and meet their needs through my own teaching style.

I’m not very flexible. Can I still do yoga?
Yoga is not about being a human pretzel! What you learn on your way to touching your toes is more important than actually touching your toes.
The combined practice of yoga postures and breath work will certainly help to improve your flexibility (and strength and balance) over time, but the shape your body makes is not the end goal of yoga.
At it’s core, yoga is a practice used to deepen our understanding of our true selves and nature.
I have never tried yoga before, will your classes be suitable?
My classes are suitable for everyBODY. As I teach small groups, or one-to-ones I can create bespoke classes that cater to your health, fitness and well being. I am a firm believer in students adapting their practice- listening to their needs- and I enjoying being able to offer guidance with variations to my students.
Yoga isn’t about being bendy or strong. My classes include breath work, mantras and other techniques to help you find your sukha*.
*Sukha is a Sanskrit word which can be translated as “ease” or “bliss.” Its literal translation is often given as “good space,” coming from the Sanskrit words, su (good) and kha (space).
Where are you holding classes?
I am a travelling yoga teacher so classes are held at my students’ homes, holiday rentals or we meet in the mountains, at the beach, by a river…in the area of Terres de l’Ebre.
I do not currently have a venue where I teach classes.
I am also holding classes on Zoom. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining a class online.
What area does Terres de l’Ebre cover?
Terres de l’Ebre is located in the south of Catalunya, and includes the comarques (like counties) Baix Ebre, Montsià, Terra Alta and Ribera d’Ebre.
I am also teaching just over the border into Teruel, as far as Cretas.
How can I join a class?
All of my current classes are private one-to-ones or small groups. If you are interested in a booking a class please get in touch.
I am hoping to be able to offer group classes at a larger venue soon.
How much does a class cost?
My prices are based on group size and distance travelled but are very reasonable. Please send a message via the contact page for a quote.
Who took your photos for the website?
The very talented Stuart Smith from MBS Photographic took the photos of me. If you are looking for a photographer in the area (he is based near Cretas), I can’t recommend him enough.
