Introductory Yoga Course.

The benefits of Yoga are far reaching. In addition to the physical benefits of building strength and flexibility, intelligent movement and body awareness, Yoga can improve your mental health and general well being. It can also help to develop better resilience to face the stresses of daily life.

We run Introductory Yoga Courses, as well as Beginners Level Yoga Classes. These are run by qualified Physiotherapists who have completed additional training and qualifications in the Iyengar method.

  • Breath awareness & control
  • Mental focus & relaxation

What to Expect from Yoga

This course focuses on the precision and alignment in each movement, and we provide feedback and 1:1 attention in each class.

The course begins at an introductory level, explaining the basic components of Yoga practice. As classes progress, exercises and poses will increase in difficulty, while considering proper technique and posture.

Classes may include props, including blankets, blocks or belts.

This course is generally appropriate for different age groups or experience levels, and can also be a useful way for those who have practiced Yoga before to reintroduce themselves to the basics.

We believe in using qualified allied health professionals who are certified and experienced to teach exercise classes, and Yoga is no exception. Juliana Portolesi is a certified Yoga instructor in the Iyengar method and a qualified Physiotherapist.

Before the Introductory Yoga Course begins, participants attend a 30 minute initial assessment with Juliana, who will get to know more about their health history, and go through some basic information about Iyengar Yoga. The course itself is comprised of 6 weekly 75 minute classes, to incorporate the additional breathing and meditative aspects of Yoga as well as Yoga practice itself.
