Introduction to Yoga Workshop
We recommend this course for everyone practising with us. If you wish to practice astanga with us you must complete it.
This informative 3 1/2 hour workshop is held every couple of months throughout the year. It must be pre booked. The workshop is for beginners to yoga or those who would like to deepen their understanding of the eight limbs of yoga (astanga). Jo will give the background knowledge necessary to give the practitioner a good understanding of the fundamentals of the practice. You will also be given modifications of postures to allow you to personalise your own yoga practice.
You can attend classes before doing the workshop but please sign up at some point, it really will help you get the most out of your visits.
