“This was a wonderful introduction to yoga for me and had definitely helped my wellbeing. I have improved my flexibility, ability to switch-off after a busy day and awareness of my breath.” ~ Chelsea
You get access to 24 specialised beginner classes – four each week- over the six-week course block. Attendance is flexible. Come to all four classes each week, or as many as you can, not just once per week!
All classes are held face-to-face in our Alfred Cove studio, with a maximum of 15 beginner students per class.
You’ll receive personalised, expert guidance from our team of friendly, highly experienced yoga teachers. We take care in providing thorough instructions, tips and motivation that’s essential for starting out well in yoga, that just can’t be learned from a general gym class or online video without the heartfelt presence of a teacher!
“Your Beginners Yoga Course is very professional and of a high standard. What was especially helpful was how everything was explained well to us. It helped me to be in the moment of learning.” ~ Brett

“It is amazing how the little things we do can have a changing or knock-on effect. I attended your Beginners Yoga Course class last night I slept through the night – in the past 20 years I can count on one hand the nights I have been able to sleep through. This is a huge shift for me and I know its the yoga. Thanks for the supportive way you teach your classes and encourage students. Looking forward to more! ” ~ Yolanda
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
Learning the foundations to practice yoga safely and with integrity is important, especially if you are just beginning. Our Beginners Yoga Course is structured and builds week-by-week, with set learning objectives.
You’ll get a thorough introduction to both Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga. Hatha has an emphasis on proper body alignment in postures to balance energy and Vinyasa synchronises postures with the breath to create flow.
You will learn yoga principles and techniques including:
- an emphasis on being self-accepting, non-judgmental and non-competitive;
- breathing fully and deeply;
- moving mindfully;
- how to focus and be present;
- safe positioning and correct body alignment;
- how energy flows;
- a range of body postures – lying, sitting, balancing, standing and inversions;
- how to be still, comfortable and relaxed.
We also guide and encourage you to apply what you learn in class, into your every day life.
“I learned the importance of balance between the mind and body. Laura enabled everyone to do everything, at whatever level of flexibility they were. Your Beginners Yoga Course was excellent.” ~ Pia
WHO CAN ATTEND?
The course is ideal for both men and women of all ages, levels of fitness and flexibility, who are complete beginners to yoga. It’s also great as a refresher for people returning to yoga after a break or who want to revisit the basics. Teenagers aged 16+ accompanied by a parent are also welcome.
If you are pregnant this course is not appropriate for you. Pregnant women have special needs that cannot be fully addressed in a general course. Please see our specialised Pregnancy Yoga Course.
After the course, students are skilled to be able to join any of the daily classes on our timetable. If you feel you need more experience at the beginners level, you are welcome to repeat the course up to three times.
“You’ve helped me to de-stress and increase my flexibility for the long-term. I’m so much more aware of my body and what it can and cannot do! Your Beginners Yoga Course classes are professional, yet spiritual, as well as fun.” ~ Craig

The four beginner classes each week are held:
MONDAYS: 7.00 – 8.15pm

“Your course was well set-up. I loved how everything connected for each class so all the postures led to a better downward dog pose. Even though I have attended yoga classes at the gym, it was great connecting why you practice certain poses and how they link your body and mind.” ~ Emma
