How will I be taught?
You will be taught by tutor demonstration and encouraged to work at your own pace. There will be some opportunity for mat work for those who can get down and up from the floor without assistance. Handouts will be provided for home practice. There is no certification for this 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?
Equipment is provided but you may like to bring your own blanket for relaxation. You will need supportive, comfortable clothing that allows ease of movement. Denim jeans, formal trousers, skirts or dress are not suitable for this activity. You should wear shoes with a soft sole. Sandals, boots or any footwear with a high heel are not recommended. You may be advised not to take part if you are not dressed appropriately.
Please avoid eating one and a half hours prior to exercising.
