Yoga classes for beginners in Wellington
These are 6-week courses teaching the basics of Ashtanga yoga. They run on a Wednesday night, starting at regular intervals.The classes run from 7 to 8.15pm and are designed to lead directly into our Open “Mysore Style” classes. After the second session, students are encouraged to come and experience our Open classes on the other evenings of the week, at 6.30pm as part of the course.
Our beginners courses are primarily aimed at those who have little or no previous experience of yoga. Over the 6 weeks students are gently guided though the first part of the Ashtanga primary sequence with an emphasis on breath and posture. Each class begins with gentle warm-ups and ends with a 10 minute relaxation. Students are encouraged to join the open classes when they complete the course.
Because places are limited on the intro courses it is essential to book in advance (phone, e-mail or in class). The course costs $80 ($70 students/unwaged), and payment is in full on the first night. We accept cash or cheque, but do not have eftpos facilities at the school. Click here to book or ring 021 02722362.
