STUDIO | Introduction to Yoga Course – Yoga for Beginners

 

Get to grips with yoga basics, with Yoga Hero’s Introduction to Yoga Course.

 

10th, 17th, 24th & 31st January 2022, 6:15 – 7:30pm

 

Yoga Hero’s Introduction to Yoga Course is perfect for those new to yoga, those who have tried and enjoyed a few classes, and those wanting to immerse themselves in the basics and techniques behind the practice.

Each week starts with the explanation of a concept, some time to try it out and ask questions, and then a yoga session with relaxation to finish.


Week 1 – Breathing and the Importance of the Breath

We will cover the importance of the breath in a yoga session, explore techniques, and try these out during our practice.


Week 2 – Sun Salutations

A sun salutation is a flow of postures which serve to warm and stretch the muscles, ready for our yoga session. In this session, we run through the salutations, covering the benefits, check points to look out for and variations to suit every fitness level.


Week 3 – Postures, and finding the right postures for you

Looking into the postures (asanas); covering correct alignment, modifications for different fitness levels and the benefits of each asana. Exploring ways to fit yoga into your lifestyle, outside of classes.


Week 4 – Relaxation

We focus on using yoga to relax. This includes making the most of savasana – corpse pose – which allows the nervous system to return to normal, and helps calm our busy minds, as well as using the above yoga techniques as stress relievers at home. We also look at stress, how can affect us and, importantly, how to manage stress levels both on and off the yoga mat.

About Kath

 

”I have been practising yoga for over ten years, and qualified as a teacher in 2018, graduating from the first 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training at Yoga Hero in Leeds.

Since then, I have also trained in teaching Yin Yoga, Restorative & Yoga Nidra, and Chair Yoga and completed my Advanced Anatomy course with a focus on arm balances.

On a personal level, yoga has had a huge impact on my life – not only physically but on a mental, spiritual and emotional level too. To me, yoga isn’t about whether or not you can do the splits or stand on your head – it’s about developing a deep connection with yourself and others; and this is something I’m passionate about sharing with all of my students.

 

My vinyasa classes are dynamic yet nourishing, with a focus on building strength and flexibility, whilst working with the breath to find focus and calm the nervous system. I also teach slower styles of yoga, geared towards finding deep rest and relaxation to help relieve stress. I’m a firm believer that yoga is for everyone, and I aim to make my classes as accessible as possible by offering variations for students to modify the practice to best suit their needs.
