*8 week course
In the beginners courses we explore the fundamentals of yoga.
We look at the basic principles of the breath & cover all the most commonly practiced seated, standing and lying postures.
We then move on to more structured sequences incorporating the breath – including sun salutations – and build on our already established asana foundations to explore variations & related postures.
Suitable for complete beginners or those with some yoga experience wanting to get back into a regular practice.
Some students are impatient to move on to OPEN level classes; others like to attend a number of these courses; the choice is yours. [ read more ]
Most of our classes are OPEN level. This means they are open to all levels of experience including Beginners.
The aim of these classes is to explore your yoga practice a bit more deeply by devoting more time to pranayama, relaxation and meditation. Strong but balanced with calming poses. (You will be encouraged to find your right effort.) Feel calm, stretched, focused, connected and centred. [ read more ]
