Welcome to the Canal Studio, a small yoga practice in North Oxfordshire run by Klara Walters-James.


Klara has been practising yoga for over 20 years and has been sharing her love of yoga through teaching in the Woodstock and Bicester area. 

Having spent most of her professional life working as a corporate lawyer, Klara is intimately acquainted with the effects that stress, pressure, long working hours and a busy lifestyle can have on the body and mind. Her desire to help people release tension and quieten the mind leads Klara to study the human anatomy as well as meditative practices and relaxation techniques.


To people who are interested in her yoga sessions, Klara says "You don't have to be fit. You don't have to be strong. You don't have to be flexible (at all!). There is no such thing as being "good at yoga". Just come onto the mat, close your eyes, breathe and be yourself".

Yoga Sessions

In her group yoga sessions as well as in her private classes, Klara creates a safe, quiet space for those who want to unwind, slow down and explore their breath, body and mind through simple yoga poses, breathing practices and meditation.
