Workshop/class designed for beginners who are wondering just what this Yoga thing is all about!
So what is Yoga? Can anyone do it? Do I have to be a pretzel? Where should I start?
The internet is awash with pictures of challenging Yoga postures, performed by athletic bodies who have years of practice behind them. That’s great – but it can be a bit daunting to the rest of us! Beginner’s classes are designed to take a wide range of bodies and experience into account. You will also get a taste of still mind meditation. Meditation is learning to quieten the busy mind, and still the endless mental chatter we assume during our day.
You do not need to be a gymnast or a guru – these courses are well suited for those beginning their journey with Classical Yoga.
Introduction to Classical Yoga
More than just a beginner’s class, this mixes some of the physical practice with discussions on the whole context of Yoga. We explore the Eight Limbs of Yoga, and look at the components of a Yoga class, as well as building up the asana (physical Yoga) at a gentle pace, building towards a full Yoga class. You will:
Learn some basic Yoga poses.
Learn some benefits and safety precautions for common types of poses.
Learn some context to some basic philosophical tennents of Yoga
Put some of these tennents into practice on the mat, and explore how to carry them with you off the mat
Next Beginner’s workshop is on Sunday 28th of July, 2019 at 2.00pm – 5pm at 6 The Highway, Mount Waverley, VIC. 3149.
