YOGA FOR BEGINNERS
Yoga means ‘union’ and leads to an integration of mind and body.
All our classes labeled “All welcome” or “Level 1” are suitable for beginners. Level 1 classes are for beginners and those with some experience. All welcome classes are suitable for all levels. Please let the teacher know if you are a beginner to yoga and they will look after you. The Wednesday 18:30 class are for people who are completely new to yoga or who want to go over the basics.
Yoga is practised in bare feet. A yoga mat is used to provide a space to practice which is not slippery. In some styles of yoga props are used eg wooden bricks, foam blocks, bolsters etc. In other styles just a mat is needed. The practice involves making a series of postures with your body that over time lead to flexibility and strength. In some forms the class is slow and time is spent exploring the posture. In other forms you move from posture to posture with the breath, sometimes more slowly sometimes faster. If you are not sure which class to try please write in to email@example.com and we will be happy to advise.
