“I really enjoyed the beginners dynamic yoga course. It was just the right balance of being challenging but also really supportive and relaxed. I will definitely be attending more classes in the near future”

Who is it for?

  • Complete beginners, especially those who want an introduction to a dynamic yoga practice in order to feel confident attending other classes
  • Those who have been practicing slower paced yoga or non-vinyasa style yoga and want to progress
  • Some level of fitness required as this is a strong and sweaty class
  • Perfect if you have attended other yoga classes but are looking for a refresher or a deeper understanding of yoga

Who is it not for?

  • The faint hearted!
  • Anyone who can’t commit to the full 6 weeks – as it’s a progressive course, attendance at every session is required
  • Although some injuries or conditions can be worked around, the aim of this class is to work up to a strong (dynamic) yoga practice so other classes may be more beneficial to those with injuries or conditions
  • Anyone who has issues with weight-bearing (plank, downward dog etc)
