Yoga programmes for beginners

If you're new to yoga we recommend you try one of our beginners programmes first. These have been designed by our teachers with absolute beginners in mind so you’ll get detailed instructions about yoga poses, breathing techniques and how to adapt poses to suit your individual body. Our beginners’ programmes usually comprise 5 or 6 classes, building up to a full class. You also get articles and extra tips to support your practice.
