Intro to Yoga
Run over 2 hours, this Beginners workshop is the ideal starting point for those new to yoga or those looking to begin a class.
We’ll open the session looking at the essential and fundamental aspects of this ancient tradition. We will also look at the benefits and how it has developed in today’s modern world.
We will then cover breathing techniques, discussing the many advantages they have on our nervous system and how to carry them into your yoga practice as well as your daily life.
From here we move in to looking at the various different types of yoga and the ones that might suit you most. We will transition into the physical practice and work through some of the fundamental postures including sun salutations, standing poses, forward and back bends and simple inversions ensuring you have the foundations of good alignment and the right balance of strength and flexibility. Good alignment is paramount to both avoiding injury and also getting the full benefits of the postures.
In the final part of the workshop we will look at relaxation techniques and how to start a meditation practise before ending with a deeply relaxing guided meditation.
By the end of the workshop our aim is that you will have the confidence to attend a regular yoga class or start a home practise and of course had a positive experience of yoga! It’s a relaxed and informal setting where questions are encouraged. The group is limited to 6 people to ensure a personalised experience.
Drinks are provided during the workshop, as well as yoga mats.
