The course every woman should do...

Why? We are under constant pressure... pulled in all directions - work, family, chores, errands, and an ever growing "to do" list.

We are often at the bottom of that list and never seem to reach the top.

You may squeeze in a hour to get your hair done, or your nails/brows - but what about you, the whole YOU?

You maybe feeling stressed... tired...sick of juggling... sleeping less than you like...or maybe you are now in a position to take some time for yourself. 

How about taking an hour a week to nurture yourself?

Take the time to stop.

Turn your mind off for an hour. Rest. Relax.

These things are just as important as the asthetic stuff we do. But it's often missed, because we're "too busy". I know what it's like. Yoga has been my saviour. Read more about my journey with yoga.

If you've never done Yoga before, don't worry, you won't be expected to stand on your head and chant funny sounds. Yoga is way more than that...read on...

What you will learn

Here is a breakdown of what you will learn during the six weeks on our beginners yoga course. 

This is suitable for anyone who wants to try yoga for the first time.

And those who have done yoga before but want to get back into it, try something new, or who’ve noticed their current practice has stalled in someway. We will go back to basics and help you.

Breath work is key in Yoga (and life!)

Utilising Max Strom breathing techniques throughout our practise, it will help to reduce stress and anxiety. 

Breathe initiated movement teaches us how to breath, move and stay connected. This  helps us to stay present and quietens the busy mind. 

  • You will be introduced to Max Stroms Breathing Evolutions

  • You will learn the difference between the automatic breathing and conscious breathing.

In order to transform and heal ourselves of any anxiety and depression we need to learn how to expand the chest, discover the Ocean Breath.

When we open the chest we release negative emotions, some that we’ve been holding onto for a long time. These simple and effective breathing evolutions/ exercises can bring you back to a peaceful and calm state and help with healing. 

Homework*: Try to practise everyday. 

Benefits: You will feel positive affects on your mind and body. You will have the knowledge to help you transform your internal state, prevent future anxiety, and help others to do so.

*Don't worry, it's not compulsory, just highly recommended!) 

Movement is key 

We use a unique movement system called Organisation and Activation to improve, stability, strength, and range of motion.

You will be introduced to Organisation & Activation and  you will use the body’s natural fascial lines to create stability, increase strength and improve your own bodies range of motion.

This unique movement system teaches you how to protect your joints, creating stability, strength by naturally activating your muscles, ligaments and tendons.

After time and regular practise you can then concentrate of improving your range of motion and flexibility (yep Yoga isn’t and never should be just about pretzel poses and flexibility. Headstands are not compulsory!) 

We learn how to focus your yoga practice around outcomes like pain relief, injury prevention and ensuring your body will last a lifetime.

Utilising anatomy, physiololgy, science and with the western body in mind, they can be a gateway to life long self exploration. 

This can then be applied to any sport and or activities of daily living to improve high performance aging.

The human hip is one of the body's largest weight-bearing joints. 

They are naturally strained from daily wear and tear and this can cause the hip to deteriorate or lose strength over time.

Having strong hips and glutes is important for maintaining good balance and stability, especially as we age. Strong hips also help with other forms of exercise too. 

We will work through some incredible game changing cues.

We will look at some classic yoga postures and learn how to keeps our hips, stable, strong and mobile during our practise (and life!).

The knee is also one of the joints most prone to pain, injury and many forms of arthritis. Especially osteoarthritis.

Many people experience knee problems at some point in their life. But there are ways to minimize the impact of knee problems.

We will look at some classic yoga postures and learn how to keeps our knees stable, strong and mobile during our practise.

Sun Salutations is a yogic movement sequences that help you connect your body and breath. It is a great way to get your body warmed up at the beginning of a yoga session. The combination of stretching and motion wakes up your body. This is something you can build up over time.

We will take it back to basics and slowly break down the postures, movements and transitions of a Sun Salutation A & B.

Often thought of as dynamic, here we will learn the importance of strong and stable transitioning for a stronger safer practise. Slow is the new advanced.

We will immerse ourselves into this beautiful empowering meditation. The practice aims to foster a mental state of kindness, love, and compassion

We will combine all we have learnt over the last 5 weeks into a slow flow, breath based sequence.

The practice can bring many benefits including

  • Self compassion
  • Decreased stress and anxiety 
  • Reduce physical pain 

We are positive this will leave you hooked on yoga and you'll want to make yoga part of your life (fingers crossed!).
