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.
