For those who are newer to yoga. If you have recently joined our classes or are thinking about it, this could be a perfect way to spend a couple of hours.

All of the teachers at the Yoga Shala are keen to share their enthusiasm and knowledge with you in every class. We aim to lead you through every posture and sequence, offering guidance on alignment in order to avoid aches and injuries, and to ensure you get the maximum benefit of each pose. The workshop allows us a little more time to spend with you, breaking down each pose further, and offering both verbal and physical prompts to help you to find and feel the correct alignment for you, which you can then incorporate into your own practice and classes.

We also spend a little time learning a couple of basic yogic breathing techniques that we use during some of our classes. Breathing techniques can be really useful in helping us to get that something extra from our yoga practice. Physically, they help to keep the muscles fully oxygenated and to cultivate internal heat. They also help us to access the mindfulness and meditative aspects.

We'll finish with an optional sit down, Q & A and general yoga natter, for those that would like to stay a while.
