Beginner Yoga Class | Flow

IN STUDIO in West Norwood / West Dulwich, South London

This gentle, flowing beginners yoga class is geared towards those with limited or no experience of yoga. The style of these classes is rooted in the practices of Ashtanga (Astanga) Vinyasa or Vinyasa Flow. By moving from posture to posture with a linking vinyasa, the body is realigned in preparation for the next posture and the body’s internal heat is increased. The classes are best experienced in warm environment at around 22ºC, which is ideal for safely encouraging flexibility and allowing a gentle detoxification process. The focus in the class is on establishing the key foundations of yoga:

  • synchronising breath to movement
  • deep meditative relaxation process
  • building internal core strength
  • specific detail on alignment
  • building strength and flexibility 
  • understanding the polarity of grounding and lifting 

Each teacher brings their own personality and style of yoga to the beginners yoga class. View our schedule below and find out more about the style of a specific class by clicking on the teacher’s name.
