The Beginner class is perfect for those new to yoga and as it teaches you the basics its a class you can keep coming back to.
As a Beginner you learn:
. Standing Poses because they improve your posture through correct movements of your legs, arms, trunk, head and neck.
Seated Poses and Forward extensions help rest your legs, consequently bringing more freedom to your knees, hips, ankles and feet.
Foundational Backbends strengthen the external spinal muscles.
Inversions are very important poses for overall wellness. They are taught in each class. They steady the mind and improve the function of the lungs.
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.
