The course will offer you an opportunity to be around people of a similar experience and ability as well as providing you with a more challenging exercise routine that will develop and extend your practice. Your tutor will explain the benefits and how you can apply them to your daily life through your continued regular practice at home. Pregnant students should not attend classes until they are at least 16 weeks pregnant.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
• Demonstrate and hold advanced postures using correct alignment
• Practice skilled control of breath
• Describe, explain and correct own posture and movement
• Link a number of postures to perform a flowing sequence
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.
