An Introductory Course
Sundays, 11.00-12.00 (30 Sep-21 Oct)
This four-week course is an accessible way to start practising yoga. It is suitable both for beginners and those with some experience.
You don't have to be bendy, or exceptionally fit. Many sportsmen use yoga to help them recover and stay injury-free: it helps focus the mind while developing strength and flexibility.
We'll explore a dynamic approach to yoga, combining steadiness and movement. Each week, we'll learn a few new postures, then link them together in a sequenced flow with focused breathing.
The course costs £25 for all four classes, payable in advance. To register, click the button below and fill in the form. If you have any questions, please contact the teacher, Daniel Simpson.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Comfortable clothing for indoor activity. Shorts and a t-shirt are ideal, plus an extra layer to keep warm at the end.
DO I NEED equipment?
Please bring a yoga mat if possible. Cheap ones are available online for less than £10. A few rental mats may be available.
CAN I EAT BEFORE class?
It's best to leave a couple of hours after eating a meal. Less is OK if you have a light snack.
Please contact Daniel to discuss any injuries or health issues, or come early to chat before class. You can also let him know if you’d prefer not to be adjusted - most instructions are verbal, but touch is sometimes used to give postural guidance.
