Yoga Beginner Course
This Yoga introductory Course is focused towards providing beginner yoga students the fundamental skills, knowledge and confidence to enjoy their yoga practice safely and understand on a deeper level what yoga is all about, and how practicing regularly can bring dramatic positive changes into ones daily life.
Most people realize they need to change their lifestyle habits for the better when they are suddenly faced with some sort of a life challenge or problem, they come to the realization that they need to make some changes or this challenge or problem simply will not go away by itself. Perhaps this is where you are finding yourself now, or perhaps your just becoming aware that by adding a regular yoga practice into your life, you can experience a much better state of well-being and good health. One of the greatest and most powerful things about yoga is that any one can learn to practice.
So You’ve Decided to learn yoga
Once you decide that you want to learn yoga, a few questions may start to come up – as a beginner to Yoga your questions should be answered before you even start practicing. When?, where? what style? can often feel like a challenge on their own. These are extremely important questions and considerations, often people will just try one class at a studio or on youtube and if it does not feel like a good fit based on the level of difficulty, the style or the instructor, they will think “oh, yoga is not for me.” But if you’re a beginner, how would you know what class or teacher is best for you?
It is important for beginners to attend live yoga classes, as there is something very valuable to the direct teacher to student transmission, but what and often happens is that the Beginner students get lost in the crowd of a class, and the teacher can only give so much time to each student before the class must continue to move on. This can often leave beginner yogis overwhelmed or even frustrated as they are not getting the much needed attention to detail when is is needed most as they arestarting out on their yoga journey.
This is where our Yoga Beginner course comes in. This course is directed at teaching students the basic fundamentals of yoga including both theory and practice over 2 days and suitable for complete beginners and students with some experience. The course will run for 2.5 hours each day (total 5 hours) giving us more than enough time to cover the following:
- Introduction to the foundation Asanas
- Body alignment fundamentals in Asana practice
- Sun Salutations for Vinyasa or flow classes
- a variety of standing, seated and lying poses
- how to correctly use yoga props
- an introduction to correct breathing and pranayama
- an introduction to yoga philosophy and how this can be applied to everyday life for greater happiness and balance
- proper understanding of the mental benefits of yoga
- meditation and focus techniques
- common injuries and how they can be avoided
Our main goal during this beginner course is to give you the basic tools and knowledge necessary to:
- join group yoga classes confidently and safely
- start a small regular Yoga and Meditation practice of your own at home
- enjoy the benefits that yoga can bring into your life
WHAT IS YOGA?
Yoga is arguably the most holistic and ancient system for spiritual, mental and physical health and well-being know to man. The principles of yoga include lifestyle choices and practices to help an individual discover and understand his or her identity and relationship with the world and to come to a place of complete harmony with all. Yoga is a complete lifestyle system, starting with Asana (poses), breathing practices, diet and meditation to bring about huge benefits on all levels, that are wholly unique to Yoga.
Yoga exercises or poses also known as “asanas” make up the foundations of the overall system of yoga that is designed for the main purpose of maintaining optimal health for all of our muscles, joints, and internal organs so that we can then focus on other higher branches of the yoga system such as meditation, self-awareness and self-realization
Yoga and Modern Living
The truth is that every one of us has at least some amount of stress to deal with, this is fact of life. And in some circumstances if this stress is not dealt with in its early stages, overtime it can grow and become a powerful negative strain that affects our entire life. The good news is that we can all learn ways to effectively handle stress. In this Workshop we will provide you with techniques, tools and practices that can be implemented regularly to help you bring a sense of peace and calm into your daily life.
Once you have a good grasp and understanding of the basics, even just practicing for fifteen to twenty minutes can make an enormous difference in how you feel and how you navigate through your day. It is truly empowering to have the tools and knowledge to take care of yourself physically and mentally, while also being able to manage the stress and tension that comes with modern day living.

“Really enjoyed my practice“ I went for a 2-day beginner’s workshop and it was great. Adam was very good and patient and we really learned a lot. After the workshop we were treated to fresh fruit and smoothie’s. It was a wonderful experience. I would go back every day if I could!
