new to yoga
the start of an amazing journey
Yoga is for everyone: men, women, kids + teens, through to seniors, mothers-to-be and new mums. Taking your first step onto the yoga mat is an exciting new beginning. Whichever style, course or class you go with, we believe that the only way to start yoga is with the highest standard of teacher in the best environment. Building a solid foundation is the most important part of your yoga practice.
The best way to begin
A Beginners Yoga Course or Beginners Ashtanga Course is the ideal (but not the only) way to begin your practice. You will be alongside other beginners, discovering yoga in a safe and fun space. The practice builds week by week, providing a solid foundation and inspiring you for classes or a course at the next level.
Can't make the Beginners Course?
If Beginners Course times don't work for your schedule, then Level 1, Open Level, Yoga Gently or Restorative classes are the best place to start. These classes are fine for beginners and the Yoga Gently and Restoratives in particular are at the gentler end of the triyoga spectrum so that beginners can integrate with ease.
Level 1 and Open Level classes
The time you spend at beginner level establishes the foundations of your practice. Many experienced students take Level 1 and Open Level classes out of choice as working with the ‘fundamentals' of yoga practice is always challenging. Take your time – practice and patience are essential. Challenge yourself, but never strain yourself.
