Beginner Foundations



Over 4 weeks, we will help you to gain insight for easing into your practice by learning the foundations of breath, body & yogic philosophy. 

Together we will cover the basic building blocks of yoga so that you can leave empowered to try any of our ‘Beginner Friendly’ + ‘Experience is a Plus’ classes.

With the newest of yogis in mind, we start from the very beginning looking at the basics of alignment, how to use extra props and how to link the breath with movements. We then introduce and work with the cultivation of mind-body connections proven to have a profound positive effects in all your life’s areas.

Leave this program with a new set of ideas and possibilities for what your yoga practice can offer you!

All Levels + Ages Welcome


Week #1 | Sun Salutations + Breath + Props

Basics of alignment, how to use extra props and how to link the breath with movements.  Unpacking the Sun Salutation + the basics of “flow”.

Week #2 | Foundation Standing Postures

After the recap of what we’ve done so far we will then look at the most common standing poses in depth.  Completing today with a structured standing (mostly) sequence.

Week #3 | Foundation Floor Postures + Twists

Let’s take a look at seated poses, twists and some more breathing techniques and how you can use them to energize or to relax.

Week #4 | Backbends + Inversion + Options + Meditation

Safety in backbends + inversions – there is a lot of fear + confusion around these poses, especially if you are new.  We will help you develop the options and confidences to approach them with what you have today!  Remember, we are all works in progress.  Knowledge is power.  Today we will take a seated meditation + learn why!

Why Yoga Why not!! It's the most challenging, enriching, enlivening and fulfilling way to spend my time. After class the cells in my body literally feel fuller, my joints move with grace and my brain feels clearer.

How I live my practice: I try, both on and off the mat, to be aligned and free, grounded and light and authentic and true.

Why Yoga I am always humbled by what I learn about myself through yoga. The practice enables me to examine my physical and emotional limits on and off the mat. I practice to stay balanced and grounded, and also because it's fun and creative.

How I live my practice: I live my life more mindfully because of yoga. I aim to live and experience life fully, embracing the easy and challenging times. I am conscious of my actions and words and chose love as my guide.

About the Unlimited Option

The best way to start a yoga practice is to attend 2-3 classes per week. As the Beginners Foundations Series offers you (in the basic option) one class per week, we encourage all new students to add the unlimited pass to enable their start to be a most successful one. Our regular one month unlimited rate is $108. Your course will cover 4 weeks  and for ONLY $20 you can upgrade your basic 4 week course to an unlimited experience. Your Unlimited Upgrade is valid at both studio locations for all room + hot temperature drop-in classes. We hope that this amazing rate reduction will encourage you to remain dedicated to your intention to begin a yoga practice. Changes await you!

Missed a Class?

As these are pre-registered sessions, there are no spaces to “jump in” on another groups session, thus we are unable to offer make up classes. We do, however, observe all major holidays with studio closures.

thanks for inviting + sharing....
