Gentle Beginner Yoga Classes

Class Description

Gentle Beginner Classes

A gentle and more gradual introduction to yoga. Gentle beginner yoga classes are suitable for more mature people, seniors, and those working with injuries or medical issues. 
You may be pleasantly surprised at what you find yourself capable of!

The gentle beginner's classes are structured similarly to our Beginners Course over a 10-week period, however, you can join in at any time. Joining the 10-week term is the most cost-effective way to attend. Casual attendance is another option.

As a new student you can purchase a 10-week course for $180. Otherwise, you can buy a 10-class beginner's pass for $195 or attend casually.

We often use various props as well as chairs in these classes to help the body ease into postures in a more supported way. The classes are generally quieter and allow for personal adjustments and guidance as needed.

If you are a regular beginner student you are welcome to attend these classes as well and may find the variations to poses stimulating for your learning.

Currently, we offering one dedicated Gentle Beginners yoga class per week. With the Beginners Course pass you may also attend other beginners classes free of charge should this be suitable for you. We recommend discussing this with the teacher.

The Wall is Our Friend in Iyengar Yoga

August 2023

The wall is probably one of the most versatile props that can be used in yoga based on our individual needs. It provides gentle support, is great for restorative work, or can provide that extra challenge. Making use of this in the practice of yoga can prove to be an invaluable asset to facilitate self-correction and learning.
