Who is this course for?
* For the safety of the students who turn up to group classes with no prior experience of yoga, as complete beginners

* To support the development of the student who is ready to progress. Because in typical yoga class where there are many students of varying abilities and stages on their yoga journey this is not always possible

* For the student who is curios and wants to know more. There are many students who are keen to understand and learn more about yoga and it is not always possible to share the knowledge and philosophy in a typical studio class of 60 minutes.

* For the many students that have commented and asked questions about yoga after the class or where they can learn more about yoga.

To give new & aspiring yogis a place to ask questions and remove any barriers to entry that they may be harbouring like : “I’m not flexible enough” or “I can’t touch my toes”, do I have to chant OM or Namaste ?
