Once you have become familiar with some basic yoga postures, breathing practices and underlying principles that guide yoga practice to support our body, breath and mind towards stronger health you may be looking for an opportunity to explore both, the physical practice and the underlying principles, a little more deeply.
During the ten weeks of the course you will
• practice a range of postures from the yoga tradition that are designed to develop ease, stability and a degree of stamina in the body; this will include including forward bends, twists, lateral bends and back bends
• learn to differentiate between the invigorating and calming effects of certain postures and sequences so that you can apply these as and when appropriate to your needs
• practice a variety of breathing practices to build your ability to regulate your breath appropriate to your needs
• learn further principles that guide and support yoga practice
• be encouraged and guided towards a short, independent yoga practice at home
• be encouraged to record your own experience and insight from the practice.
What previous experience, knowledge or qualifications do I need for this course?
This course is a continuation course after completing the Yoga Step 1: Foundations for Strong Health or any one of the other Yoga Step 2 courses.
What do I need to bring with me?
For this course you are invited to bring an interest in taking your physical practice of yoga on to the next level and learn further underlying principles that guide yoga practice.
You will need to bring a non-slip mat for the yoga practice, perhaps a block as a support for any seated practices and a blanket to keep you warm during relaxation. You will be asked to reflect on your practices, so a pen would be most useful too.
You may also want to bring a bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated.
Are there any additional costs?
What can I do next?
