4 week beginners yoga course with Amy Hughes

In this 4-week workshop students who are new to yoga, or want to revisit the basics, will be introduced to the foundational poses of yoga, the basic breathing methods and the biomechanics of alignment in the postures so that they can practice confidently, comfortably and safely.

This 4-week yoga workshop is an excellent opportunity for students new to yoga or who are working with specific limitations or injuries to build a safe, fulfilling and enjoyable practice. Students will be invited to ask questions and to request specific tips for their personal practice.

There will be handouts and suggestions for home practice. Students will also be guided towards the types of class that might suit them as practitioners at the end of the course.

Each session will have a specific focus.
