.beginners yoga courses

We offer introductory courses, which are carefully designed to set the foundations of the practice and provide an intensive and focused introduction to yoga and its benefits. These courses are for those who are completely new to yoga as well as for those who are looking to reestablish their practice. Each course introduces students to key postures, breath control and core strength as well as elements of meditation and relaxation. The course will encourage you to learn to be receptive to your own level, speed and breath. We recommend that anyone who is entirely new to yoga should start with one of these introductory courses to ensure they gain a solid and safe foundation for their practice.

During the first week we will establish the core strengths to guide you through your practice involving breath, movement and stillness as we explore the sun salutations and some standing postures to build foundation strength. Some breathing and meditation techniques will be introduced. The second week will carry you through some key sitting postures and more closing postures including shoulder stand. The third week will begin further exploration of the sitting sequence. By providing strength-building exercises, you will start to feel confident entering postures with the breath and exploring them in a deeper way. The final week culminates with adding all the elements of the yoga practice together – flow, breath and core strength – and working at the appropriate level of intensity in the postures.
