YOGA ASANAS – yoga postures
Yoga asanas are postures that rejuvenate the body and promote a state of physical and mental wellbeing. The practise of asanas is accompanied by conscious breathing. Although the postures are performed by the physical body which is strengthened and revitalised through the practise, asanas also have profound positive effects on the mind.
They can be practised regardless of age.

Asanas make one firm, free from disease, and light of limb.
Hatha Yoga Pradipika
Getting started

Welcome newcomers! If you are just starting yoga, we recommend attending a Level 1 beginners course. This is a step-by-step approach to learning the basic postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. You will receive personal guidance from an experienced teacher, allowing you to grow into the practice at your own pace.

 

The four basic level courses, Level 1-4, will progressively take you from the beginner level to the intermediate level. You can repeat any level as many times as you like. Once you have learnt the different postures and breathing techniques, you can join the drop-in classes.

Level 1 - Beginner

This is the best place to start and is perfect for complete beginners or people who have only practiced yoga occasionally. You will gradually be introduced to the basic postures for developing srength and flexibility, breathing exercises for increasing your energy and focus and relaxation techniques for body, mind and spirit. Feelings of calm and well-being can already be experienced after the first class.The course includes an introduction to yogic diet and its health benefits.
