Our Introductory Beginners Course is suitable for absolute beginners and newcomers to yoga, as well as those returning to yoga after a break. All ages. No experience required.

Iyengar yoga is a comprehensive method with much attention to detail, precision and alignment. This style of yoga is especially adaptable to individual needs. In our classes, we actively work with the whole body and engage the mind.

Experience the True Benefits of Yoga

Iyengar yoga is a profoundly comprehensive method and highly adaptable to individual needs. Regular practice is key to reap the rewards.

By signing up with our Intro Offer you not only save, but you also can opt to do more regular yoga with access to multiple classes a week without having to pay extra. Regularity is the key to feeling the benefits of doing yoga in your physical and mental well-being; and there is no quick way of doing this.  

What is it like for someone running daily their set kilometres? Will you know what it is like to be a runner after only a couple of tries? Will you learn how yoga can help you deal with daily challenges, tiredness, stiffness, and low moods when only trying it a few times? That’s why our Beginners Course is designed to encourage you to commit to  yoga classes over a longer period to allow you to experience the essence and benefits of Iyengar yoga more fully.

“I never knew I could love yoga so much. I’ve been coming to Hamilton Yoga for over 10 years and am always sorry if I miss my weekly classes.” - Google Review

With regular yoga practice, students say they are feeling invigorated, refreshed, and challenged, while learning about the healthy sensations in stretches. Yoga sets you up for better physical and emotional balance, strengthens muscles, promotes bone density, and increases mental clarity. 

Our non-competitive and supportive studio space provides also an environment for social connections and friendships between like-minded people. 

“The biggest positive about the beginners course was slowing down and being in the moment, and learning the health benefits of certain poses.” - Course Feedback

The next beginners yoga course starts on 29th of July.

What to Expect

You don’t need to be flexible to sign up for the course; all you need is a flexible and open mind, and a willingness to give it a go.

In our beginners yoga classes we explore the essential foundations of Iyengar Yoga and teach variations of yoga poses (asanas) appropriately for the beginner level. The Iyengar Yoga method is known for its precision and focus on alignment, teaching you a safe approach to yoga postures.

A class is structured starting with more active poses where we work with the whole body, ending with relaxation. The class is 1 hour 15 minutes long.

Each new pose is introduced with the teacher demonstrating, coupled with detailed explanations. Adjustments will be given as appropriate and executed with the utmost skill and respect. 

Before attending you will need to fill out a medical form. Depending on individual needs, the teacher will provide you with alternative ways to work within a pose.

With our weekly progressing classes, we endeavour to instil confidence in you in your yoga practice and to provide you with stimulating challenges for both your body and mind.
