Class format and activities

Weekly timetabled class in college with social distancing. Each class will focus on one or two yoga poses- giving a thorough grounding in their fundamental mechanics. The class is guided through verbal instruction. There will be opportunities for feedback and discussion and some partner work if appropriate.

Entry requirements

This is a beginner’s class but all levels and abilities are welcome. Let the tutor know if you have particular therapeutic needs.

What you need to know before you enrol

The class is progressive and student centred. It will be designed round your needs rather than expecting you to fit yourself to its agenda and demands.

What you need

Please wear suitable exercise clothing: tracksuit trousers or leggings are better than shorts. Also bring a warm garment such as a sweatshirt to wear during warm-ups, discussions, and relaxation. Bring a bottle of water. Whilst we do hold a stock of yoga mats at college we suggest that all students bring along their own mats for hygiene reasons.

What you can do next

The course will empower you for other physical pursuits and mental challenges. Can help refine skills for athletes, musicians and dancers.
