An Introduction to developing positive habits in nutrition, movement, breathing, self-awareness and enjoyment.
Yoga approaches health from an all-round perspective. This course will give you an overview of 5 areas of our lives which contribute fundamentally to creating, maintaining and restoring good overall health. All of these are addressed by yoga:
• A physical practice of postures
• Working with our breath
• Developing self-awareness that enables positive, well-informed choices
• A sense of purpose and enjoyment
Each session will outline the basic tenets of one of these five aspects of health, invite you to explore your own relationship to it, and from session 2 onwards will include simple, accessible yoga posture and breathing practices. Throughout the course you will be encouraged to record your most relevant experience and insight from the presentations and practice and perhaps implement a small change in your daily life to support your health.
At the end of the course you will have an experience and understanding of which area of your health might need your attention and will be guided to further course options that will offer the opportunity to develop the skills to support those areas of your health in more detail.
