6 WEEK BEGINNERS COURSE
This course is ideal for those who have never done yoga before, may need a yoga refresher, or may be recovering from an injury.
WHAT TO EXPECT
• Learn around 25 yoga postures in detail that are common to most styles of yoga
• Learn the "why" behind yoga alignment cues
• Prevent injuries by understanding your options
• Have a chance to ask questions throughout a yoga class
• Learn ways to work with tight hips + lower back issues
• Understand how to prevent shoulder injuries in yoga
• Understand what options to choose in a regular open class as a beginner
Each week you will be guided through basic yoga postures that form the foundation for our regular vinyasa classes. We start with a skeleton version of a longer sequence and each week add in around 3 new postures - so there is lots of repetition and opportunity to ask questions and build confidence.
So that you get the most out of your experience, we provide a beginners course ebook for home practice. We set the class up in a way that everyone has direct line of sight to the teacher, and for busy courses we aim to have a second teacher on hand to provide additional adjustments and individual attention.
