Beginners Yoga Workshop

Saturday  19 February at 9.30am at Tottington Manor, Henfield.

Designed for complete beginners (and also useful for improvers who want to go over the foundations). A gentle and friendly 3-hour class designed to focus on basic yoga postures and simple breathwork. Suitable for all ages and body types and delivered in a friendly, non scary style!

The class will cover:

  • Introduction to yoga – what to expect in a class
  • Explore some basic postures to understand what we are trying for in terms of optimal alignment
  • Options for differentiation for when a full posture isn’t possible (eg arthritic wrists or sore knees)
  • Postures for strength and flexibility
  • Postures to work, stretch, soften and strengthen different body parts and improve your posture
  • Simple balances
  • Standing, seated and lying postures
  • Using props (blocks, straps) for comfort, alignment and to fully access a posture
  • Introduction to different breathing and pranayama techniques
  • Deep relaxation time

There will also be plenty of time for Q&A and you’ll get handouts with diagrams of the postures covered.

Social distancing observed if preferred by attendees (it doesn’t have to be hands-on as in the photo!)
