6 week beginners yoga course - 1 March 2017
Wed, 1 Mar 2017, 19:00 – Wed, 5 Apr 2017, 21:00 GMT
The benefits of yoga can be plentiful, but sadly some people feel nervous trying yoga for the first time - worried they'll be too inflexible or inexperienced to participate in drop-in classes. Our 6 week beginners course aims to put you at ease and teach you the basic postures, practices and philosophies of yoga - in a warm, friendly and utterly unpretentious environment.
By the end of the course, you should feel confident enough to come to drop-in classes, attend yoga retreats, or even to practice at home.
Learn the key postures, principles and philosophies of yoga, gradually building your capabilities and confidence so you can join drop in classes. Each week will have a specific theme and a group of postures that we'll focus on, but we'll weave these in to a 'regular' class, so you're still reaping the benefits of a yoga class without having too much of an information overload.
In addition to the postures, you'll practice various breathing practices (pranayama) and meditation techniques.
You'll be given a handout after each class of what we did that week, so you can practice at home with a point of reference - and catch up if you missed a class. Here's an outline of what we will cover each week of the course:
Week 1: Sun salutations & some standing postures
Week 2: Forward bends, extensions & twists
Week 3: Back bends & core strengthening
Week 4: Balances & breathing practices
Week 5: Inversions
Week 6: Bringing it all together: vinyasa flow transitions
This course will run for 6 weeks from Wednesday 1 March 7.00 - 8.15pm, Gosford Village Hall, Ottery St Mary.
Earlybird £65 (before 15th Feb)
