"Yoga isn't about touching your toes; it is what you learn on the way down."

This beginner’s yoga course is a great way to learn and perfect the fundamentals of yoga. The course is designed for both those completely new to yoga, and those that have some experience with yoga and want to learn more about the basics.

 

Our Yoga and Mindfulness teacher Irene will guide you on how to progress in your yoga practice to meet your personal goals – whether you want to become more flexible, strong, recover from an injury and/or reduce stress. The course will include some theory but mostly be hands-on and practical, with feedback on your form in the different yoga poses, and approach to the yoga techniques.

The course is made up of two 2,5-hour sessions with time in between to practice and explore what you have learnt. It is built in a progressive way where it is necessary to attend the first session in order to join the second one. To get the most out of the course it is recommended if you can find some time to practice yoga between the two sessions. By the end of this two-week course you will have the tools you need to get the most out of your yoga practice.
