Essential Yoga Poses for the Beginning Student Workshop, Singapore


  • Yoga In Common 22 Petain Road Singapore 208095 (map)

Being a beginning yoga student can be stressful and overwhelming. There are new information on breathing, props, body parts, posture names, tips and cues to guide you into poses, etc. In a public class, things can happen quickly and there may be many things to juggle at the same time, which can make you feel intimidated and shake your self-confidence. Perhaps you prefer home practice and find yourself needing some additional insight to support and reinforce your self-practice.

In this 4 hour workshop, we focus on common yoga poses that you will encountered in most public classes. Standing, balancing and floor poses and their variants will be covered: closed/open hips, side body lengthening poses, twists, forward folds, and front body openers (backbends). We will explore:

  • Using your breath to support your practice

  • Ways to set up and utilise your props

  • Safety tips when working into yoga postures

  • Finding your optimal alignment

  • Variations of the full posture that you can feel confident taking

Come as you are, with a towel and water bottle. Bring along a notebook and pen if you would like to take notes. Feel free to take pictures during the workshop to reinforce your learning.

Session 1 - Sat 24 Aug, 2.30-4.30pm (hips & twists)
