Yoga Foundations Course starts September 2016!

The perfect course for those wanting to delve deeper into the practices of Yoga, Meditation and Relaxation. Ideal for those thinking of teaching but not wanting to train yet.

What will I experience on this course?                                     

The course content will focus on the following aspects of yoga:

• Postures – learn at least 30 key postures in depth
• Sequences – learn at least 4 sequences (for core strength, for emotional rebalancing, for a healthy back, for stress relief).
• Meditation
• Deep relaxation techniques
• Energy boosting (chakras, mudras)
• Spinal Awareness
• Breathing Techniques
• Mindfulness       
• Yoga Principles (Philosophy & Sanskrit)

Is this Course Suitable for me?

This course is suitable for beginners.  The course is not competitive and you do not have to have mastered any advanced postures, or be able to meditate, to take part.  Pregnant ladies also welcome. 

There is no compulsory home study.

“I can now practice yoga by myself and I can meditate! Amazing!”

Who will teach me?

How do I get assessed? Can I fail?                                                                                                                    It is not compulsory to home study.  There will be suggestions for further reading and subject-related questions you may wish to answer.  Whether you do this is entirely dependent upon yourself and your motivations for doing this course.
