For Beginners

The first two classes of each month return to the very basics of the practice. These are ideal for absolute beginners as often these classes are slower and less technical than others.

If you have done some yoga before, or are reasonably fit with a good level of body awareness, you are more than welcome to join the classes at any stage of the month.

Last Class of the Month

Over the course of a calendar month, classes progressively become more physically and technically challenging, matching pace with participants abilities. The second to last class of the month is often the 'peak' class, where all the preparation work in the earlier parts of the month come together.

The last class of the month, participants are encouraged to make a request for a pose, meditation or pranayama that they would like included in the class. Everyone's contribution then co-create the final class of the month.
