What to expect in our Yoga classES


Our weekly hatha yoga classes in Oxford offer the chance to retreat to a safe, peaceful space, away from the stresses of everyday life. We explore postures, breathwork and relaxation intended to restore the mind, body and senses to their natural state of equanimity. There will be physical challenges, but we are looking to develop a genuinely healthy relationship with our bodies, so the focus will be on 'relaxed effort' rather than a forceful approach to exercise. Our yoga nidra classes in London explore the state of being ‘wakefully asleep’ as a basis for self inquiry and restoration. It can be a profoundly enlightening and healing experience. Our Thursday night yoga nidra and meditation class in Oxford incorporates a mix of practice and discussion and offers the perfect complement to your physical practice (everyone is encourage to attend the hatha yoga class beforehand, though this is not a prerequisite).

Private sessions

Restful Being private yoga classes (which can include any/all of the following: yoga nidra, hatha yoga, meditation and yoga therapy) allow for a uniquely tailored practice or a means to explore especially sensitive issues in a completely safe environment.

The Restful Being studio is a small, peaceful space just outside Oxford (OX13 5JH). For private group classes it can accommodate up to 6 people for physical practice or up to 15 for sitting meditation.

James is also able to visit people in their own homes/studios, providing anything from 1-2 hour sessions to long customised retreats.

Most 1-1 sessions are offered on Fridays at our studio and cost £55 per hour. Please email hello@restfulbeing.com to make an enquiry.


PractiSe Online

You can also practise at home with James by signing up to Ekhart Yoga and following his programmes there.



Please note that because demand often exceeds spaces refunds are only given in exceptional circumstances to ensure committed attendees secure a place:

Classes: If you may not be able to commit to a full term then please think hard before you book your space. Demand is high so we are rarely able to offer refunds if you change your mind or are unable to attend.

Private sessions: Full refund up to 48 hours’ notice; otherwise the fee for the allotted appointment time (and travel time where applicable) will be charged in full.

Workshops and retreats: For longer retreats you will typically be required to pay a non-refundable deposit and then the full fee one month before the start. Workshop spaces are often very limited and in most cases a refund cannot be offered unless someone on the waiting list is able to take your space.
