foundations of yoga course
5 session course
In this course I offer, in a clear and heartfelt way, the principles of yoga so that you experience the wonder, the potential, and the efficacy of the practice as it applies in your own life.
this course is for you if:
- you are new to yoga. This is a sound starting point, providing a base for your next step, be it with me, with this method, or in another style of practice.
- you have been practicing yoga for a while and want to ground yourself in a framework of perspective, alignment, and action that can help you further your practice.
- you are wanting to engage with classes with me. This course gives a solid grounding to understand the ‘why’ of the language and cues used to guide you.
Each session has a focus, with breath, relaxation, and nervous system balancing practices woven throughout. Sessions have the following focus
Session 1: Foundation: physical, breath, attitudinal and philosophical
Session 2: Expansion and contraction (spanda): muscular and organic energy
Session 3: Lower-body principles: energetic spirals, lower back support and curvature
Session 4: Upper-body principles: shoulders, neck and upper back
Session 5: Integration: putting it all together and sun salute sequence modifications
When you enrol for the course you will receive immediate access to all 5 sessions and will retain access for a full 6 weeks. Please give yourself time to assimilate the content of each session before moving on to the next one. In the studio, this course has been offered as a one session per week program, so that is a suggested approach to consider for this course.
It is my deepest wish that you discover the innate intelligence of your body and heart through yoga and that your well being is supported and enhanced by this course.
