Beginner's Yoga - Adults
Friendly weekly yoga beginner / refresher classes
I attended class for the first time tonight and I have to say it was the best thing ever!
I was put completely at ease and enjoyed every second of it. It was an hour and a quarter spent completely forgetting about the mad world I live in, so very relaxing and so completely enjoyable.
The course is an ideal opportunity to begin a weekly practice of yoga, whether you're a complete beginner or you'd like to recap on some of the basic postures, breathing and relaxation techniques.
Our Beginner's Yoga course is an ideal opportunity to begin a weekly practice of yoga, whether you're a complete beginner or you'd like to recap on some of the basic postures, breathing and relaxation techniques. The course runs at a gentle pace and will give you a good grounding in the foundations of yoga for you to then continue your own practice and to progress into our other classes.
InJoy! Yoga offers Beginner yoga classes for those who are new to yoga and for those who have previously learnt a little yoga. Classes are particularly useful for those who would like to learn the foundational building blocks of a safe Asana (yoga posture) practise. These classes are also particularly beneficial to those who want to develop their own home practice and to existing InJoy! clients who have perhaps come to pregnancy or baby and postnatal yoga but have not had much experience of 'general' yoga and want to join one of our general classes.
Classes focus on building an awareness of a balanced yoga practice, incorporating asana (physical yoga poses), breathing, meditation and sound practices. All foundational yoga asanas are taught so that the full range of movements needed for a healthy spine are covered. These include forward bends, back bends, side stretches, twists, inversions and balances.
Our aim is to ensure you are familiar with moving safely in and out of asanas, have grasped foundational alignment for all yoga asanas, have a clear idea of what your body needs to balance itself, and have learned the most important and beneficial yoga practise of synchronising breath and movement. This is how we synchronise all the internal systems of the body and makes yoga so health promoting.
You will also become familiar with the names of some of the yoga postures both in English and Sanskrit, and gain a new set of yoga buddies!
InJoy! teachers come from a variety of yoga training backgrounds but we each share a passion for teaching good alignment, building a yoga practise from foundation to more advanced yoga and teaching from the heart. Those of you who come along to our classes can expect to be welcomed warmly and have your individual needs paid attention to. You can also expect to leave feeling more peaceful, energised, trusting and joyful as this is our remit as InJoy! teachers. Feeling good within your physical body is the medium through which we achieve this.
Rosanna personally mentors all InJoy! teachers and her Anusara Influenced Yoga Training means she focuses on passing on the building blocks for teaching stronger physical yoga safely. All InJoy! teachers are focused on unleashing the healing power of yoga that comes from freeing the emotions through clearing physical blockages present in the body.
