Yoga for Beginners: Find Your Strength
In this beginners yoga class, build on the skills explored in the previous classes, with a focus on upper body strength. There will also be time spent delving into the options for plank and chaturanga. Chaturanga can be a tricky pose which requires strength and patience to develop - but it’s not one to be afraid of. Learn to warm up the hands, arms and shoulders and how to build strength and safe alignment for this pose. You may need a couple of yoga blocks or bricks.
Yoga for Beginners: Balance Strength with Softness
This yoga for beginners class shows us how to be strong, and be kind to ourselves: a sense of self-compassion is just as important to cultivate as strength. This class has us stepping through from downward facing dog to a lunge. This requires core strength and balance, so the sequence incorporates drills to work on those skills. Physically, expect to explore lunge variations whilst mentally and emotionally exploring the concepts of strength and softness.
