Course Content

Each session will begin with a foundational discussion on yoga, covering the importance of breath, meaning of vinyasa, effect of yoga on both the body and mind and the benefits of a consistent practice.

You will cover and practise foundational yoga postures (asanas) and their benefits on strengthening and stretching the body incorporating breathing techniques (pranayama), relaxation and guided meditations to rest and restore at the end of each class.

You will build your yoga practice progressively from one week to the next, and by the end of the five weeks you will have a firm foundation on which to continue your own yoga practice whether that be at The Avenues Centre or even on your own!

Some of the overall benefits you can expect to experience from this course are:

  • Improved breathing and breath control
  • Improved strength and flexibility
  • Improved balance
  • Enhanced mindfulness
  • Stress management
  • Sense of community

What you will need

  • Comfy clothing – layers are best as you will heat up and cool down quickly after your session
  • Bottle of water
  • Light snack – cereal bar/fruit

Yoga mats, blocks and blankets will be provided but feel free to bring your own.
