Strong to the core. Supple to the fingertips.


BraveBodies yoga in Lowford, Bursledon, Tuesday nightsWelcome to BraveBodies yoga and Pilates classes in Woolston and Lowford. Are you looking to become more supple? Stronger? Leaner? Fitter? Do you want more energy? Do you want to be able to tie your shoelaces even when you are 165? Do you want to improve your running, or windsurfing, or just undo all your shoulder-hunching and belly-squidging behind your desk? Do you want to get rid you persistent back pain? We were born to move, not to sit. We were made to run wild, gather wood, hunt, climb trees, swim — not to sit in front of screens for twenty hours a day. Come and rediscover your body with us, and surprise yourself with what you will be able to do — and how you new body will make you feel.

I currently run three classes online — this is an outcome of the pandemic when being online was the only way to keep teaching, and a welcome development for a number of people who aren’t local to Southampton or simply want to practice from the comfort of their own home. If you’d like to join any of my online classes, please email me at and I will send you the login and payment details.

If you want a quick overview, here is a TIMETABLE for all our classes and locations. Otherwise, pick from the ones below! Looking forward to seeing you on the sticky mat!
