Beginners Yoga Workshops
We run occasional workshops designed for complete beginners and those fairly new or returning to yoga who want to cover the basics.
Workshops are suitable for all ages and body types as a friendly and gentle introduction to yoga.
Perfect if you’ve not yet come to a class or have been to a few classes and want a bit more information.
If there is a Beginners Workshop currently scheduled you’ll see it listed here in the booking app.
Other specialist workshops are listed here in the booking app.
Workshops are held at Rickmansworth Tennis Club on Sunday mornings.
Please get in touch if you’d like to be on the waiting list for the next workshop.

Taught by Annette Henn and Marie Page
Annette has been practicing yoga for over 45 years. She particularly enjoys tailoring the practice to the requirements and abilities of her class. In the workshop she will demonstrate how to maintain a full yoga practice while keeping the wrists and shoulders happy!
Marie ended up with shoulder surgery following an over enthusiastic Pilates class. In the workshop she will share her journey to full mobility without pain or impingement. A student she has been working with in regular classes this year has seen rapid improvement to a frozen shoulder thanks to regular yoga and adapted postures.
