If you have not completed an introductory course or attended the introductory level drop in classes for a period of time, we ask that you go to the new students timetable and find an option that will work for you. Introductory level class/course attendance looks after your learning and ensures the focus is on Yoga and not just movement. Understanding the context of the practice is critical if students are to engage safely and effectively.
New options for beginners: 20 classes for $250 COURSE FORMAT
We are offering a 10 week beginner course which will comprise 2 classes per week. Vera will teach this course on her return from studying at the Iyengar Institute in India. The course will commence 17 July and finish on Saturday 21 September.
This course is suitable for anyone who has competed an 8 week introductory course. Two classes per week helps to establish the mental discipline necessary to commence and sustain a home practice. Attending a course is the most supportive way to learn because sequences are progressive. The body responds to routine and as we gain confidence in asana, we are more inclined to practice.
New option for General level students: 20 classes for $250. COURSE FORMAT
Polly will teach the Monday and Wednesday night general level classes as a course, commencing Monday 15 July and finish Wednesday 18 Setpember. (Students can still attend these times on their class cards, howeve the classes will be taught in a course format and will cater to students enrolled in the course). The Monday night class will be active asana with an empahsis on twisting standing poses, backbends, balancings and more advanced seated poses. The Wednesday night will focus on the development of head stand variations, longer timings shoulder stands with variations, restorative poses and pranayama.
It is time for the school to offer courses for those who are ready to engage in a deeper level of practice. The combination of the active class and the restorative and pranayama practices, along with variations in head stand and shoulder stand, reflects the intent of Sutra 1.12 which pertains to the Twin Pillars of abhyasa and vairagya. These are THE YOGA PRACTICES: Discipline and renunciation. They are the means to still the fluctuations of consciousness.
“When the waves of consciousness are stilled and silenced, they can no longer distort the true expression of the soul. Revealed in his/her own nature, the radiant seer abides in her/his own grandeur.” BKS Iyengar commentary Sutra 1.3
During the 10 week course it is possible to miss 3 classes and make these up in the Tuesday evening or Thursday evening 6pm Beginner class time. Make up classes must be taken by the end of the 10 week term.
