On this course, beginners will learn basic postures and those with some experience will develop their practice of yoga postures, breathing and relaxation techniques. Your tutor will explain the benefits and how you can apply them to your daily life. You will be recommended to practice regularly at home.
The following learning objectives are what students should achieve during the course:
- Demonstrate and hold a variety of postures using correct alignment
- Practice control of breath to assist relaxation and stamina
- Identify the benefits of Yoga practice
- Link a number of postures to perform a flowing sequence
- Discuss basic Yoga philosophy, history and terminology
You will need to be able to follow verbal instructions, observe and copy physical movements and use spatial awareness within a group. Although there is no specific work set outside of the class, students will gain most benefit if exercises are performed regularly and practised between classes.
