Commences Thursday 6 February 2020 @ 6.15-7.30pm
Have you ever wanted to learn yoga, but thought it wasn’t for you?
Maybe you thought you needed to be flexible (not true), spiritual (not true) or vegan (definitely not true!) to practice?
How about investing in YOU this New Year, by taking the first steps to beginning. Here is your chance to start the year off well and then continue on throughout the year once you see how many incredible benefits Yoga can bring to your life. This Introductory Beginners Course was designed with you in mind.
Learn Hatha Yoga in this 8-week program, ‘Yoga for Beginners’. A course designed for absolute beginners, or for those wishing to gain a better understanding of their yoga practice.
Held over 8 consecutive Thursday evenings, commencing 6 February, 2020 – 6:15 to 7:30PM
You will be safely introduced to the foundations of yoga, starting slowly and gradually building up in each class. This course progresses from week to week and all students are encouraged to move at their own pace.
You will learn breathing exercises, postures, moving sequences, and relaxation techniques, as well as being introduced to the history and philosophy of yoga.
At the completion of the 8-weeks you will have developed an understanding of how Yoga can benefit your life, as a powerful tool for transformation, or simply as a great way to stretch and relax. You will experience how deep relaxation arises from concentration, focus and physical attention to detail.
