Focus: Becoming aware of the way that you stand is a great starting point when you begin learning yoga. You may not realise that your feet turn out. You might lean forwards, or to one side. Your shoulders might push forwards. Your chest might collapse. Your spine might sink. This class will give you an insight into starting to see and feel your body as it really is. It then teaches you, step by step, how to realign and rebalance. It gives you the tools to strengthen the parts of your body that may need to be strengthened. It shows you how to bring elasticity to areas of the body that may have become inflexible. It will help you to feel more energetic and confident with how you hold your body. This first class in the Yoga For Beginners Course will get you up and practicing yoga. The benefits will soon begin to follow.
