What you will learn

A gentle, systematic approach to Yoga. It treats classical poses not as ends in themselves, but deconstructs them and provides an opportunity to build awareness, mobility and strength. Helps tackle injuries and postural problems.

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Explore yoga poses from the inside out
  • Gain increased body and breath awareness
  • Experience greater flexibility, mobility, co-ordination and grace
  • Build strength and stamina
  • Relief from chronic tension, pain and fatigue
  • Enjoy greater physical and mental well-being
  • Experience Stress reduction

Class format and activities

Weekly timetabled face to face sessions in College. Each class will focus on one or two yoga poses- giving a thorough grounding in their fundamental mechanics. The class is guided through verbal instruction. There will be opportunities for feedback and discussion and some partner work if appropriate

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.

Entry requirements

All levels and abilities are welcome. Let the tutor know if you have particular therapeutic needs.

What you need to know before you enrol

The class is progressive and student centred. It will be designed round your needs rather than expecting you to fit yourself to its agenda and demands., , For further course information please email healthandsocialcare.enquiries@morleycollege.ac.uk

What you will need for your class

Please wear suitable exercise clothing: tracksuit trousers or leggings are better than shorts. Also bring a warm garment such as a sweatshirt to wear during warm-ups, discussions, and relaxation. Bring a bottle of water., Whilst we do hold a stock of yoga mats at college I would suggest that all students bring along their own mats for hygiene reasons.

What you can do next

The course will empower you for other physical pursuits and mental challenges. Can help refine skills for athletes, musicians and dancers.
