Yoga for beginners is something very personal to me as I remember what it is like to be a complete beginner and not having a clue where to start.
Each session in this 4 week course starts with a warm welcome and focuses on a carefully tailored theme to gradually build your confidence, strength and flexibility. Instead of trying to force and painfully fit your body into Yoga postures, you're encouraged to embrace your body and choose the modifications that suit you. We wind down with seated postures involving hip openers and Savasana to close each session.
Equipment such as Yoga mats, blocks and straps are provided but you are welcome to bring your own. Bring a water bottle with you to keep hydrated, there is a water station at the studio should you want a refill.
What to expect:
⤀ Body awakening movements to warm up the body and focus the mind.
⤀ What intentions are in a Yoga practice and how to set them.
⤀ Knowledge of the basic / fundamental Yoga postures.
⤀ Functional ways of getting in and out of postures.
⤀ Sequences (flows) and postures that strengthen and stretch the hips, core, back and shoulders.
⤀ Restorative postures and Savasana (guided relaxation) towards the end to digest everything you have experienced.
⤀ Expect a little bit of partner work in this workshop.
