Yoga Live It

Welcome…

…to Yoga Live-It – for Yoga in Banbury.  This is the website of David Russell, an experienced yoga teacher, qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga, currently running classes in Banbury.  The focus is mainly on hatha yoga but with other influences.  I am interested in the philosophy and spiritual side of yoga and generally the classes include a short talk on something yogarish to widen the experience.  Classes generally comprise 1 hour of asanas, followed by inverted postures, Pranayama and relaxation, meditation or visualisation.

The big change for the Summer sessions is the use of new venues.  The Mill decided unilaterally to increase my fees by over 38% so new venues have been secured and no classes will be held at the Mill in future.

The new Thursday morning class will in future be held at the Rugby Club in Bodicote, next to Bannatynes  OX15 4AF.  Parking is free and the venue is modern light and airy; coffee is available just over the road at Cotefield Nursery.  We start here on the 17th March, with a class on the 24th and then back after Easter on the 7th April.  The mill was flooded again on the 10th March – so no classes that day.

The new Thursday evening class will be held at the Redlands Centre from the 7th April.  This is just off Neidrop Avenue, which is accessed from the Warwick Road just up from the Texaco Garage or Ruscote Avenue OX16 2NT.  Again modern centre newly refurbished.

I have been running a class at HMP Onley for nearly a 18months now for prisoners.  It has been quite a commitment and I am enjoying a break whilst I try to source some more funding and gain access to the other two facilities on site.  Running a session for prison staff would also be a bonus.

There will also be a day session (Hatha and Dru yoga, dance and meditation) on Saturday April 23rd along with some other teachers, see post – further details to follow.
