Yoga Courses for Beginners

Yoga for Beginners Courses Learn the basics of yoga from scratch systematically and safely in a small, friendly and relaxed setting with one of our Yoga Courses for Beginners.

Or, take a course to renew your practice after some time away or to strengthen the foundation of your existing practice.

In Yoga 1, you will be introduced to the 5 Points of Yoga for vibrant health, 12 basic yoga postures, breathing exercises (pranayama), sun salutations (surya namaskar), relaxation exercises, proper diet, positive thinking and meditation.

In Yoga 2, you will further establish the practice learned in Yoga 1 as well as several new variations to develop more flexibility, strength and stamina.

Courses are 4 weeks with students meeting twice per week for 90 minutes each. See below for dates and times.
