Do you want to try yoga but feel nervous about joining a class?
Think you're not bendy enough to do yoga?
Maybe you've tried online yoga and now want to try it in a real class?
Then this is the perfect course for you...
Join a small group of fellow newbies to learn the basics of yoga, nurture your own wellbeing and build confidence in your body. You'll be supported and encouraged by Janice, a highly trained teacher but one who remembers exactly how it feels to be a nervous newbie!
Over 4 weeks you'll learn:
- A range of basic yoga postures, and how to do yoga safely
- How to adapt the postures to your wonderfully unique body
- Breathing and mindfulness practices to help you feel calm and balanced
- Relaxation techniques to restore your energy levels
Focussing on alignment and steady foundations to encourage good posture, this class will help you to feel grounded and balanced
in body & mind
Releasing tension from the body, incorporating forward bends (top tip: you don't need to be able to touch your toes!)
An oasis of calm in the busyness of your day
Gentle backbends to counteract the habitual slump that we develop from our everyday activities. This class brings a joyful lift into your day
A series of twists and side bends to help you feel light & spacious.
This class will leave you feeling refreshed
At the end of the 4 weeks you'll have experienced some of the wonderful benefits of yoga, and feel confident to join our regular, mixed-level classes.
Yay - you've done it!
It's good to acknowledge our successes! So, when you've completed all 4 classes you'll receive a free class in our regular group (subject to availability) and a month's free access to our Online Studio.
