Cost: £40/£35 concessions. Includes learning materials.
A comprehensive 3hr workshop which teaches beginners all the essentials they will need to help start (or restart) them on their yoga journey – instilling them with the groundwork & confidence to attend regular classes or begin a home-practice.
The workshop will start with the basics of what Yoga actually is and the ancient philosophy behind it. A chat about the different styles of yoga will be followed by a practical primer in all the key groups of yoga postures including standing poses, forward & back bends, twists, sun salutations and simple inversions. You will also learn about alignment, how to work towards experiencing ease & stability in your poses and the importance of the breath – its effect on your practice and using it as a simple way to start meditating.
This workshop is geared towards being relaxed & informal where you are encouraged to ask as many questions as you like throughout. There will also be a chance to have a cuppa & a chat at the end of the workshop too. No previous yoga experience is needed – just bring yourself & some comfortable, stretchy clothes.
