How many times have you been to a class ‘suitable for beginners’ and got there and felt like the only beginner in the room? That happening can put you off going to class again because you don’t want to feel like the only person not knowing what they’re doing.
What if you could start your journey with people who are at exactly the same level as you? In a safe environment? With a teacher you can trust?
That sounds like a better option, right? Then keep reading for this 5 week Yoga for beginners course!

Each week has a different focus, but our main objective will be to understand, feel and embody each pose in a way that suits you. We will use props, partner work and individual exploration to make a solid start to your Yoga journey.
Week 1 – Breath and Sun Salutations
Week 1 focuses on understanding and feeling your own body, learning how to move it properly and how to use your breath in a way that facilitates movement. To work through this, you’ll learn Sun Salutation A (Suryanamaskar A) which involves many of the transitional poses we use in Yoga and therefore provides a really great base for the rest of your journey.
Week 2 – Standing and Seated Poses
Week 2 we will delve straight into learning the basic standing and seated poses which will start to help you build a lot of your base strength, which is needed in all Yoga classes.
You’ll discover ways to best perform these poses for yourself and your needs in a way that will aid your progression.
Week 3 – Forward bends and Back bends
This week may sound like a complex one, but will turn these poses into amazing and easy movements that will simply free your body in a way it’s never been opened before!
Week 4 - Twists and Inversions
Inversions always seem like the scariest of poses to perform but as with all Yoga poses there are ways of approaching these poses that will make it easier to overcome the fear and liberate the mind! We will look at the many twist variations with fun and discover how purifying they can be.
Week 5 – Putting it all together
This final week will put together what you have learnt into one full Yoga lesson and leave ready and excited to move into a standard group class.
Expect to work through a lot of the standing poses and back bends and take home some really useful exercises and sequences.
This workshop is perfect for beginners and improvers.
You will also receive a free poster with a beautiful sequence that can easily be followed at home.

The workshop will cover pranayama (breathing and energy); helping you to discover how to clear the mind and both through the breathe. We will also delve into some beautiful twists to clear the body of any excess waste. We will end the physical practice with a deep sweat inducing flow to rid the body of toxins and prepare it for the changing season.
The end of the workshop will look at a little nutritional information and inform you on what foods to be eating at this time of year and you’ll even get a little recipe book to take away for free.
