Our beginners’ course I & II are an introduction to yoga, its philosophy and it’s practices.
A typical 1 hour class will comprise of 10 to 15 minutes introduction, where we explain what elements of yoga we shall be studying and its practical benefits, the historical context and the modern research backing up this ancient wisdom. The rest of the hour is dedicated to the instruction of the physical practices and relaxation techniques.
Our first package provides you with the knowledge and confidence to participate in any yoga class at our, or any other studio. By the end of both courses, you will not only have an understanding of the art and science of yoga as a holistic philosophy for a complete healthy lifestyle; but also an understanding into the more esoteric, less tangible ideas of the energetic and spiritual, which make up our personality.
