Yoga Basics 5 Week Group Session Course ‘Deconstructing the Asanas*’
5 Week Course
Starts September, 7th (Saturday)
11am – 12:30pm
(Including FREE 10 Week Online Version worth £39.99)
(*Asanas are yoga postures*)
***Revised and updated.**
This is the 4th Beginners Yoga Course I am running.
I have added 2 brand new sessions to this Course: one on on Bandhas (what they are, how we engage them and what they are for) and one on Drishti and its types. I’ve also added one more type of breathing – Ujjayi breath.
🌟Bandhas – body locks. They offer support during a posture or in the transition between the movements.
They also help in directing the energy within a body.
🌟Drishti – focused eye gazing point.
🌟 Ujjayi Breath
🌟Yoga Basics Manual – a complete guide to everything discussed in this course in a downloadable format
The access to the materials of the course is included into the price of the Yoga Basics Course in a PDF format. You are welcome to print them off and use them for the sessions or access the materials online throughout the course. You will have access to 10 separate PDF documents: one per week.
If you are like me and like having an actual manual to follow, make notes and have access to it whenever you need it – please select that payment option at the bottom.
The manual is more structured and it is something you can always get back to whenever you want to brush up on some material.
The manual will be available in a downloadable and a booklet formats from the 1st of September 2018.
*You can also purchase a manual on its own and not as part of the course*
What else is included into the course?
Would you like to learn more about breathing and its benefits and how to coordinate breath with a movement?
✨ Postural Alignment and Anatomy of the Postures
Would you like to know the right alignment for the most common yoga poses and to find out what mussels your are engaging and stretching?
✨Modifications, Variations & Contradictions
Would you like to know the modifications and variations of the most common yoga postures?
Very often in a group yoga class, especially a busy one, it is quite challenging for an instructor to physically correct all the students. Although they will most likely talk you through the possible options and variations, sometimes it takes time to figure out what option you need to take.
Also, all the postures have contraindications and advisories, and depending on your medical history it is good to know what you need to avoid or modify.
✨ Physical and Spiritual Awareness
✨Benefits of the Postures and Pranayama
The aim of this course is to give you the basic knowledge of the 16 main Yoga postures for you to be able to practice yoga in a safe way and to be aware of how to get into the position, know what you are stretching, the correct alignment, what variations of the posture you can opt for, how to breathe in a pose and what benefits you gain from being in a posture.
This is a very straightforward and easy to follow course. We will be studying and deconstructing only 2 Yoga Postures per session stripping them away to the basics.
Every session consists of 3 parts:
1. Breathing pattern
2. Deconstructing the Asanas (16 Postures)
3. Yoga Practice
How does it work?
If you are signing up for a group session then once you sign up for the course you will be added to a secret Facebook group and will be provided with access to the online materials on a weekly basis. You will have a week to work on the materials on your own and then will have a group session on Saturday where we are going to go over everything and have a mini Yoga Session to practice what you have learnt.
There are 10 online sessions in the course and 10 sets of detailed PDFs to go with them. The group sessions will run as a 6 week course, so some weeks we will be including an extra pose or so to be able to cover all the materials.
*A printed Manual is available on request*
In a nutshell, the summary of the course is as follows:
⁃ Access to a 10 Session Online Yoga Basics Course including a full Yoga Practice at the end of each lesson
⁃ Access to a 10 Sessions worth of detailed PDFs covering all the material of the course
⁃ 8 eye exercises
⁃ 6 x 1 1/2 hr Groups Sessions
⁃ Access to a Secret Facebook ‘Yoga Basics’ Group
⁃ Small Group Sessions
⁃ Daily support within a group
Here’s some recent feedback from the course:
‘I find the downloads easy to follow and I’ve really enjoyed it in combination with attending your classes – theory into practice has always worked best for my learning. I enjoy being able to go back to them anytime I want. I know I will never be a pigeon but I’ll strive too and that’s what counts, you have certainly motivated me 😂’
‘Finished week 1 today and really enjoyed it. Very easy to follow and it all made sense. 👍will get onto week two on Wednesday‘
The course is suitable for both: complete beginners and those who are already practicing yoga.
If you are unable to attend a group session you can always catch up on the online materials and I will also let you jump into one of my Yoga classes instead.
