Beginners' Course

NEXT COURSE: SAWTRY OCTOBER 2021

"The expert in anything was once a beginner"

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, now a highly trained teacher but 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

Week 1

Grounding

Focussing on alignment and steady foundations to encourage good posture, this class will help you to feel grounded and balanced

in body & mind

Week 2

Calming

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

Week 3

Energising

Gentle backbends to counteract the habitual slump that we develop from our everyday activities. This class brings a joyful lift into your day

Week 4

Refreshing

A series of twists and side bends to help you feel light & spacious.

This class will leave you feeling refreshed

and supple

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. 

The next course in Sawtry is kept to a maximum of 10 people, to make sure you get the most benefit from the sessions.

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.
