What will I learn?
We discuss the anatomy of the body and how that relates to your postures. We examine some of the key postures of yoga, why we do them, correct movement and possible modifications you could make if needed. Each week we look at a pranayama (breathing) practice and discuss the benefits and 'how to's'. We also cover an introduction to relaxation and meditation through traditional and simple practices.
You finish this 6 week Yoga Study Group with a deeper understanding of yoga, allowing you to have a solid personal practice to work with, and offering a great ‘prequel’ to the Level 1 Teacher Training journey, should you wish to take this further. This offers you a firm foundation of knowledge and experience of true yoga.
