This course provides the tools to develop a safe yoga practice that is achievable and adaptable, avoiding the risk of long term injuries. It’s a great confidence booster in a non judgmental, encouraging environment offering both a physical practice along with questions throughout in a workshop format. This ensures you gain a full understanding of key techniques and how to apply them in a safe and practical way to suit your body. Over the six weeks you will improve and build on learnings each week, challenge yourself and have fun.

Key Areas Covered Include:

• Foundation Asana. Learn alignment of the foundation poses used in class and how to translate the principles learned to other Asanas.
