I used to teach yoga classes in Willen pavilion and Old Bath House Wolverton, Milton Keynes and in Hardengstone Village Hall, Northampton till lock down in March 2020. At the moment I have resumedwith Willen Outdoor Intermediate Yoga Class for intermediate level and Willen Yoga for Beginners Class for people with little or no experince of yoga. Both classes need to book: Please use the link: https://www.joyyogatherapy.co.uk/ I hope to get back with other classes in 2021 if the virus goes or stops being a threat to human well being.
The Willen Intermediate Yoga Class represents an opportunity for practitioners of all levels to experience an alignment-based, dynamic practice that cultivates greater stamina, strength and flexibility.
These classes are brilliant - very friendly and supportive. Elena is a wonderful teacher who has managed to coax my unfit body into positions I never thought possible! The sense of well being after a class means it's great for both body and mind. Give it a try - you won't regret it!

My background is in banking, teaching and network marketing. There were good times but mainly a lot of stress. A few years ago I took time out to build my own home in Fulbrook on the edge of thebeautiful Cotswolds. I am lucky to be able to enjoy the house of my dreams with my family, a crazy parrot, with a very dirty laugh, and our newest addition a gorgeous chocolate lab. I came across Laughter Yoga by chance and went along to a Laughter club not sure what to expect.
My classes all take place in the Yoga Barn in Wolvercote, North Oxford. This is a converted Edwardian barn set in an orchard with superb views over Port Meadow to the spires of Oxford. This spaceoffers a delightful setting for yoga. It is warm, comfortable, peaceful and has a lovely atmosphere.
I have been studying and teaching Hatha yoga since 1989. Over the years, I have studied with a variety of teachers, allowing me to adapt my knowledge to the needs of many different students. I enjoybringing yoga into schools, universities and the workplace. I specialise in teaching yoga for better mental health and for people with substance misuse issues. I love teaching yoga because it invites people to find that compassionate stillness amid the busy-ness of life.
