This course gives you the foundation skills and confidence if you have never tried Yoga before and are curious about exploring the practice in more detail.

In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.

This course is aimed at introducing you to the basics of Yoga in a fun and uplifting way. It will also cover useful breathing techniques that can also be used to help deal with stress in day-to-day life.

The course will explore the fundamental practice of Yoga, enabling you to learn individual asanas (poses) and become familiar with their names and how to move in and out of them safely. You will also become familiar with the sensations of each pose which will help you tune into your own body and feel more confident.

You will also learn about Pranayama (breath-work) and focus on breath throughout each session. Classes will close with relaxation to allow the body to consolidate the work of the practice.

Our experienced tutor can adapt to the physical needs of the individual, offering variations to poses where necessary and can accommodate injury by modifying poses as needed.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:• identify four key elements that build a versatile Yoga practice• demonstrate a series of frequently used Yoga poses • recognise the importance of using the breath in Yoga

Please bring own mat and water bottle.

Please note there will be no session on 29/05/25.

Fee information
Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
