About This Class

In this short 25mins tutorial class, I'll explain how you can get started with practicing Yoga today - before you step onto the mat. I share with you some of the principles I teach my beginners Yoga students when they first come to class. It can also serve as a nice reminder for anyone who's been practicing Yoga for a while.

During these 5 short and sweet sessions I'll talk you through some of the things we want to remember as we dive deep within to ask ourselves how we actually approach our practice - and typically that corresponds to how we approach our lives (#foodforthought). 

This class is for you, if you've never set a foot into a Yoga class before, you're unsure and maybe even somewhat intimidated or scared of the unknown of what it's all about. And that's totally understandable, but - I've got your back. Worry not.

My aim is that at the end of this class you'll have found a clearer picture as well as the confidence and excitement to start practicing.

Remember that a "Beginners Mind" is a beautiful thing to live as it encourages us to look at all angles and embrace all challenges in a new and exciting way. Whereas "advanced" Yoga isn't so much the ability to bend into incredible shapes and forms (*ie pretzels). More importantly than that - it's about using every single moment to breathe and move consciously, to stay centred and patiently draw your wandering monkey mind back to your practice, and back into the present moment. 

It may sound easier as it is, and it's a life long journey of discovering and unraveling the beautiful layers within us.

If you've got any questions at all, I'm very happy to chat. Just message, comment, smoke signal or whatever way you'd like to get in touch.
