Yoga Classes for Beginners

Learn to be flexible with our yoga classes in Sydney.

Learn Hatha Vinyasa yoga in this four-week in-depth course specifically designed for those new to yoga or those simply wishing to gain a better understanding of their practice. Great for increasing flexibility, improving breathing, relieving stress, calming the mind, improving your sleep and toning and strengthening your body.

Your body will open up in ways it never has and you will learn a lot about yourself as you try things you haven’t done before. Small group classes allow individualised attention from the tutor. Each session is 1.5 hours long allowing time to practice the postures.

The course will teach you the Hatha Vinyasa flow of sequencing of yoga postures, yogic breathing techniques, the connection between body movement and breathing, meditation and deep relaxation. If you’ve previously completed the Yoga for Beginners course at Sydney Community College or equivalent, you can join this course to progress to an intermediate level. Classes will be structured so that you will gain the skills to start a personal practice or be challenged and continue gaining a deeper understanding of your existing practice.

For hygiene purposes please bring your own yoga mat.
