The holistic health benefits of yoga are seriously wonderful! You can expect to feel stronger, more energetic, firmer, more flexible, calmer and more focussed. During this six week Introduction to Astanga Yoga course you will learn the critical aspects of this ancient practice, a practice steeped in wisdom and backed up by modern science. You will learn to move with the correct breath, why where we gaze is important, the reason we Om. The course will give you a strong foundation to enable you to practice in any of our classes and also at home.
We will work on the critical aspect of linking breathing with movement, the vinyasa for the ultimate moving meditation. You learn a little about the philosophy of yoga and also be led through meditation and relaxation techniques.
We are an Astanga studio and passionate about the benefits this ancient practice can offer. Your course will be based on the tradition of Astanga which is a powerful yet subtle practice. It is a practice that takes time and patience to learn and creates a blueprint for wellbeing that begins on the mat and manifests itself in everything we do.
This course will offer the foundations of a yoga practice and we work with each individual to establish the beginnings of a yoga practice both in a class-led environment and a home self-practice.
Our next course begins on Tuesday evening 1 May with the option of a second practice each week included in the course cost on a Thursday evening. (7.45-9pm at St Mary’s Community Hall)

Sunday Restorative Class.
On the last Sunday of each month we teach a special class unwinding and allowing the parasympathetic nervous system to arise and heal. In this restorative yoga class we guide you through a blissful sequence of restorative postures exploring every aspect of our bodies and selves. the restorative class has been so well received that we have added a new class to the timetable on a Friday evening every other week too.
