About this course

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.

How will I be taught?

You will be taught by a qualified and experienced Yoga tutor. Teaching methods will include demonstration, explanation, discussion and times for question and answer sessions. Your tutor will demonstrate movements and talk you through all sequences. You will be carefully observed to ensure that you are working safely and be encouraged to monitor and record your progression on the course.
To assist us in providing a safe and healthy environment for you to exercise you will be asked to complete a Confidential Health Questionnaire. Your progress will be monitored through a Learning record and your own personal learning diary or fitness log.

What do I need to bring with me?

You will need supportive, comfortable clothing that allows ease of movement. Denim jeans, formal trousers, skirts or dress are not suitable for this activity. Yoga is generally practiced in bare feet or socks and all movements are performed on a mat. You may be advised not to take part if you are not dressed appropriately.

Students need to bring a mat to work on and may wish to bring a towel. Please bring water and avoid eating one and a half hours prior to exercising.
