Level 1 - A unique set of practices that you will not find elsewhere. This level is ideal for those who prefer a gentle practice or who have, for example, a sore back, chronic fatigue or other health conditions that require you to take care. Never underestimate the potent benefits of a gentle practice. Practising of this level creates a solid foundation that is excellent for maintaining balanced health and preparing to safely practice the next levels.
If you are new to yoga we recommend you start with the Beginners Yoga & Meditation Course. If that's not possible then join this class as it is also suitable for beginners. However this level is beneficial for everyone no matter your experience or level of ability.
Level 1 and yoga nidra - In the quiet of a Sunday afternoon here is a chance to slow down and unwind. An opportunity for release of deep muscular, mental and emotional tension. The session includes a gentle sequence of asanas and 30 - 40 minute yoga nidra (guided deep relaxation). The class leaves you feeling balanced in body, mind and soul.
Back Care Class - This session focuses on practices to help balance posture and create strength in a safe way. Suitable for people of all levels of abilities.

A harmonious practice to experience correct yoga postures as you develop your strength, flexibility and focus. With energizing and balancing sequences, breath techniques, meditation and relaxation. Combined with knowledge about the benefits of each posture, techniques to practice correctly and what results you'll start to see in daily life.
Level 3 - an traditional practice that is challenging, nourishing and balancing all at the same time. Not suited for beginners or people who prefer a gentle class.

Remaining in each position for a longer period of time will enable you to experience the influence of the asanas upon body, mind and soul, you begin to percieve the vital energy that is stimulated through your body in each of the postures. The meditation in these levels deepens the concentration (Dharana)
