Kyo Yoga teachers are trained in a variety of styles and lineages. Our yoga classes are all Hatha based practices – but vary in being more or less dynamic, slightly gentler or stronger.
Below is a description of the classes ranging from gentle to more challenging. We encourage students to try a class to see how it feels for them always working with adherence to ahmisa or ‘doing no harm’ to body or mind.
Beginners Course – For ultimate Beginners. An 8 week introduction to yoga. Learn basic postures, breath awareness and relaxation tools.
Beginners Plus – The next step on – still suitable for Beginners but also catering for those who can do a little more. This practice builds on basic postures with respect to developing further breath and body awareness. If you have done a Beginners Course this class is a great next step.
