Living Yoga Mini-Workshop:

Garnswllt, Ammanford

Take 90 minutes out of your busy schedule just for you!

Together we will learn a set of complementary postures and how they go together to create some space to think. We’ll discover how yoga is much more than just a set of postures and how to use the movement to explore our own minds and take these lessons into everyday life!

We will take a quick look at some yogic philosophy and how it applies on and off the mat. Finally, we’ll take a look at where yoga came from and why it is as relevant today as it was 5,000 years ago.

This workshop is an introduction to Living Yoga and is suitable for beginners and more advanced yogis alike.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Flying Warrior - Beginners Yoga Class in Ammanford

What are the minimum and maximum age ranges for the induction training?

Generally, I welcome students between the ages of 18 and 99. My feeling is that if you've reached 100 years you have probably achieved enlightenment already!

If you are younger than 18 and want to try the course, please do get in touch, classes have included teenagers as young as 13.

How large are the classes?

There are a maximum of 15 mats available for this event.

How difficult are the postures?

All bodies are different so there may be some postures that you find challenging, whilst others will come to you quite naturally.

The key is to understand that we are not a class of seasoned yogi's, we are all on a learning journey and a posture that feels difficult to start with will, with practice, become more natural. This could take a couple of weeks for a particular posture, or it could take years. 

I have an ailment/ injury. Can I still join the course?

As long as you have some mobility, you should be fine. The important thing is that you listen to your body and be prepared to modify any posture that causes you pain, or you intuitively feel is going to aggravate your injury. If it's a long-term issue then you will also need to be patient, this course is about learning the basic postures - we are not looking for perfection at this stage. If you're in any doubt, just consult your doctor.

Is this class suitable if I'm overweight?

Yes. Most of us have something that requires us to modify or even skip certain postures until our bodies are ready for them. It's just a case of patiently working with yourself, without judgment and thoroughly enjoying the process. If this is a concern for you please feel free to get in touch.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Yes we do. To avoid having to try and fill spaces at the last minute, I am happy to offer you a full refund if you decide this workshop isn't for you assuming there is more than 10 days prior to the start date. 

If you are within the cancellation period, simply get in touch and I'll arrange for a full refund!

Is this workshop for you?

This is not a beginners course, but it is totally suitable for those who have never even looked at a yoga mat. 

  • No previous experience necessary
  • You DO NOT need to be physically fit, or flexible – you are welcome to take it all your own pace
  • This course is open to ages 18 to 99 (please call if you’re under 18 or 100+)
