Yoga Foundations Workshops
in South London
This afternoon workshop sets the foundations of your yoga practice and provides a focused introduction to yoga and its benefits. These courses are ideal for those who are completely new to yoga as well as for those who are looking to reestablish their practice. The workshop paves the way for you to continue your practice in Level 1 classes.
There will be a brief overview on the background of yoga, what it is, the benefits and how to apply it as an essential tool for life. The workshop will then introduce students to a sequence of asana (postures), breath control and core strength as well as elements of meditation, pranayama (breathwork) and relaxation. It will encourage you to learn to be receptive to your own level, speed and breath with a focus on:
- synchronising breath to movement
- specific detail on alignment
- building strength and flexibility
- understanding the opposition between grounding and lifting
- how to modify postures using props to suit your body
- deep meditative relaxation process
This is an ideal way to establish and lay foundations for a safe and beneficial regular practice in which you can access the many benefits of yoga. There will be time to ask questions during the workshop. See our short film here for more on the benefits of yoga.
