These beginner courses are a great place to start for those who have never stepped foot on a yoga mat before but they can also be a fundamental part of the more experienced yogi’s practice. We encourage those more seasoned to return to the basics at least once, especially those who cut their teeth in drop in classes. We promise that you’ll learn something that you missed the first time around!Here, teacher Susi Wrenshaw tells us a little bit about what to expect on her course.
• “Over the 6 week course I aim to introduce students to the 8 limbs of yoga which includes postures, breath work, ethics and meditation with practices to take home each week for those that want to.
• It’s the perfect way to learn yoga in a small, friendly group. As a group we make connections and share our experiences over the weeks, there’s always something to give us a good giggle too!
• Teaching is layered over the weeks so students get a strong grounding in the techniques and are confident in how to adapt them for their bodies. Learning to breathe, align the body and relax are key parts of the course.”
I’ve completed a beginner’s course, now what?
Almost all of our timetabled classes are beginner friendly but we understand that the fear of the unknown can be nerve wracking after the familiarity of a beginners course. Some open level classes are taught at a faster pace than others, but all teachers will give modifications when necessary. If you’re at all nervous, speak to the teacher beforehand and let them reassure you.
Below are some of our slightly slower classes which are a great place to start in building your confidence.
- Yoga all levels
- Yin yoga
- Hot 60 (taught in studio one, heated to 38-40 degrees)
