Our Beginner classes are perfect for those new to yoga and a class you can keep coming back to as it teaches you the basics.
As a Beginner you learn:
Standing Poses because they improve posture through correct movements of your legs, arms, trunk, head and neck. Furthermore they include all spinal movements – sideways, forward and back ward extensions and also lateral rotation.
Seated Poses and Forward extensions help to prevent anxiety and restore energy to your body. They rest your legs, consequently bringing more freedom to your knees, hips, ankles and feet.
Foundational Backbends start with prone postures. These strengthen the external spinal muscles preparing the spine for more advanced back bends.
Inversions are very important poses and are taught in each class. They are good for calming the mind, improving the lungs and for overall wellness.
Supine Poses stretch the abdomen and increase mobility of the spine, hips and groins. They are restful, some help to open the chest.
Twisting the spine consequently helps to release tensions in your back.
Abdominal contractions strengthen internal organs and firm the hips and back.
Surya namaskara (Sun Salutations) is the linking of poses. Sometimes referred to as ‘Jumpings’.
Relaxation is practiced at the end of each class.
Our beginner classes are also excellent for more established students wanting to re-establish the basics of yoga postures.
You will notably feel and see your posture has improved.
