starting yoga in 3 steps!
Step 1 - choose a class
When you start practising yoga you first want to get familiar with the basics. For instance the poses but also the specific breathing technique. You learn these basics in our classes which are specifically for starters. Also the classes with an easy pace are good classes to start yoga. During these classes the teachers have sufficient time to talk you through all the poses and learn you the different techniques. As soon as you are familiar with the basics (usually after 6 -12 classes) you can join the classes for the more advanced yogi.
Ideal starters classes are:
Beginners Power Yoga
Ashtanga Mysore Style
Jivamukti Open Class
Jivamukti Beginners Vinyasa
