Beginner These classes are for students absolutely new to Yoga, or if you would like to refresh your Yoga experience. Class sizes range in numbers generally from 8-15. The Beginner class focuses on building strength, stability, balance and awareness of the body. We move through poses sequentially building from the last pose to the next pose as the weeks progress so the student becomes familiar and confident with this step by step approach. Props are often used to help support the student to move into a pose when there are limitations within the body or to help move into the pose more deeply. Level of flexibility is no hinderance to attending these classes. Watch and feel your body opening each week.
General Suitable if you have done 2 terms or more of Yoga or have done a substantial amount of yoga in the past. General classes suit students who have some familiarity and foundation with the asanas (poses) and want to deepen their practice and journey as a student of yoga.
