6 Week Programme

13th April – 18th May 2023 6:45- 7:45pm

Studio & Online

 

 

Our ‘Improvers Yoga Course’ is a detailed 6-week programme with Heather specially designed for anyone who would like to build on foundational yoga postures & breathing, increase your yoga repertoire by exploring & adding in new poses & variations, and learn the Vinyasa style of yoga and its transitions. 

It is also a perfect ‘next step’ for you if you’ve taken a ‘Beginners Introduction To Yoga’ Course or something similar AND have been attending classes for at least a couple of months since completing.

This is also a great fit if you have been attending classes for at least 6 months but never taken a beginners yoga programme.

You will further develop & continue with what you have learned and have been practicing in classes. The weekly live sessions, discussion & coaching, access to replays and overviews give you an opportunity to learn from Heather and be supported within a course structure and set group of similar practitioners – to assist you before/ whilst attending weekly Vinyasa based yoga classes.
