Yoga Foundation Course
Mondays 5:00-6:15pm, from 9th March 2015
Tuesdays 11:00-12:30am, from 10th March 2015
This six-week course will help get you prepared for other classes. It teaches the basics of Ashtanga and Iyengar, two approaches to yoga on which many styles are based. We’ll look in detail at the most common postures, and link some of them together with rhythmic breathing in a flow.
Yoga is for everyone. You don’t need to be bendy or fit to begin, just open-minded and attentive. As B.K.S. Iyengar, an Indian master, once advised: “Do not think of yourself as a small, compressed, suffering thing. Think of yourself as graceful and expanding, no matter how unlikely it may seem at the time.”
Although the course is designed for beginners, it would also suit others who haven’t practiced in a while, or want to explore the fundamentals. All equipment, including mats, will be provided. Please wear close-fitting, comfortable clothes (shorts or leggings and a vest or t-shirt are ideal), and avoid eating for at least two hours beforehand.
Mondays 5:00-6:15 pm, from 9th of March 2015
Tuesdays 11:00-12:30 am, from 10th of March 2015
A day learning meditation. Next is Saturday 21 March 10.30 – 4.30– book here.
