BEGINNER SERIES ONLINE COURSE
If you would like to establish a good foundation of yoga knowledge before coming to class, then I encourage you to try my online course for beginners. This series is a collection of videos from 10 classes of the Beginner Series. You will see a real class with real students trying the poses out for the first time, just like yourself. You have the freedom to practise when it’s convenient for you in a quiet space of your choosing. What’s more, I welcome you to contact me if at any point during the series you have any questions so that you can have as intimate an experience as the students who attend my class in person.
