Ashtanga Yoga for Beginners




4-WEEK ASHTANGA YOGA FOR BEGINNERS COURSE


STARTS SATURDAY 25 APRIL, 8:45AM

We are pleased to announce that Yoga Mama will be offering a new 4-week ashtanga yoga for beginners course which starts on Saturday 25 April, 8.45am. The class will be led by Degy and is designed for beginners. Please note that this course is unsuitable for pregnant women who have not studied ashtanga yoga before.


ABOUT THE COURSE

The beginner course will teach you the grounding elements of Ashtanga Yoga. You will learn the main principles of this method, which are linking breath and movement. You will be taught the Surya namaska sequence and introduced to the standing postures. This particular method of yoga is ultimately practiced in what is called "Mysore style", where you move through the sequence at your own pace, in what becomes like a moving meditation. It is both dynamic and relaxing at the same time.


ABOUT THE TEACHER

Degy was introduced to the ashtanga yoga method here at The Putney Clinic by Cherie Lathey. She has gone on to train and study with internationally renowned ashtanga yoga teacher John Scott and has practised with a number of senior teachers including Nancy Gilgoff and Sri Sharath Jois.

This 4-week course costs £56. If you would like to sign up for this Ashtanga yoga for beginners course, call us on 020 8789 3881 or drop us an email to info@putneyclinic.co.uk.
