About this course

Our Yoga classes are open to anyone who would like to improve their fitness and health and enjoys group exercise classes. This course is a mixed ability class; suitable for beginners, more experienced and advanced students. Your class will be held in our modern studio where class sizes are no larger than 8-9 students, giving you the benefit of practising as part of a small group. As with all Yoga classes we advise anyone with a pre-existing medical condition to seek advice from their GP before exercising.

Yoga beginners will learn basic postures, experienced and advanced yoga students will develop their practice of yoga postures, breathing and relaxation techniques. Your tutor will explain the benefits and how you can apply them to your daily life and you are encouraged to practice regularly at home.

You will need to be able to follow verbal instructions, observe and copy physical movements and use spatial awareness within a group. By the end of this course you should be able to:
• Demonstrate and hold a variety of postures using correct alignment
• Practise control of breath to assist relaxation and stamina
• Identify the benefits of Yoga practice throughout various life stages
• Link a number of postures to perform a flowing sequence
• Recount at least three ways in which exercises can benefit health and wellbeing throughout various life stages.

To assist us in providing a safe and healthy environment for you to exercise you will be asked to complete a Confidential Health Questionnaire. If you have suffered from any of the conditions listed, please check with a medical practitioner to find out whether this course is suitable for you.

How will I be taught?

At the start of your course you will be asked to complete an Individual Learning Plan which includes your Initial Assessment of your own fitness levels and will be used by you and your tutors to reflect on and monitor your progress. Your tutor will also use this information to ensure that all of your personal goals are achieved and provide individual support where necessary. At the end of the course you and your tutor are asked to assess the progress you have made.
Your tutor will discuss your progress with you and give you feedback. You will be encouraged to record your progress on an Individual Learning Plan.
