Imagine trying yoga for the first time.
In the complete privacy of your own home.
With expert, live online guidance.
A lockdown project? Even a lockdown benefit?

Yoga for beginners is a four-week live Zoom course that gently introduces beginners like you to yoga, in the privacy of your own home. It starts on Friday 13 November 2020 and is led by the lovely Laura Innes.

Yoga is a vibrant, living practice originating from India with ancient roots and a rich history. It has so much to offer us in the modern world and can help to bring more peace and freedom to our lives and communities.

In this friendly, welcoming class we will explore together the basics of yoga postures (Asana), breathing practice (Pranayama), meditation, relaxation and yoga philosophy.

Each week will have a different focus, based on what are known as the Eight Limbs of Yoga, and will support you to cultivate a connection to yoga that works for you.
