YOGA FOR STRENGTH
Our 6-Week Beginners Yoga Course is the perfect introduction to the world of yoga, and our teachers have been specially trained to de-construct the most common yoga poses and transitions.
What makes our classes totally unique is that our teachers have worked closely with Chanthalah, our physiotherapist, to design clear and logical class content that is enaging and with a goal in mind - to deliver the material in a step-by-step way, ensuring you feel confident with individual adjustments that suit your body.
This course is ideal for those that are brand new to yoga or people with a little experience.

It takes a lot of courage to try something new. It takes even more when you’ve tried something before and you struggled and you go and try it again. That’s why at CoreYoga we have always taught our foundational practices straight from the heart and with fun at the forefront. Our goal is to not only teach you something awesome about yoga, but to help you create a deeper appreciation for functional movement that can be meaningful in all aspects of your life. The March Foundation Course will provide you with the perfect base to springboard your yoga practice in tailoring it for strength. We will introduce the peripheral Bandhas (co-contractions around a joint complex) and focus on how to use them in the stabilising aspect of the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and feet, legs, hips and spine. With the combination of appropriate strength for grounding that enhances functional flexibility, the energy or Prana can lift upwards through the body.
The March Beginners Yoga Course is Yoga for Strength
Week 1: Introduction to yoga and the eight limbs, pranayama (breathing), movement relationships through the spine, What is a Bandha?
Week 2: The Bandhas of the upper body for upper limb stability
Week 3: The Bandhas of the lower body for lower limb stability
Week 4: Understanding gravity in yoga postures
Week 5: Flexibility and mobility for freedom in the postures
Week 6: Supportive inversions, yoga meditation
AT the end of each course you will receive an informative handout to support you in taking your yoga home.
On a physical level, yoga is the practice of various poses; known as asanas, which improve coordination, strength, balance, endurance, muscle tone and flexibility. Combined with the use of yogic breathing (pranayama), the practice also works to calm the nervous system by stimulating the systems responsible for our relaxation response. and this is where many health benefits are gained. CoreYoga is a moving meditation with Purposeful Relaxation.

Chanthalah (pronounced gen-ta-lah) believes Yoga is for everyone; and yes, she was gifted with her traditional Lao name by her parents. It means full moon, and it does leave her a little kooky! She is dedicated to sharing the gifts of yoga to her clients through her specialized, sequential approach, combining evidence-based, Western medical knowledge of Physiotherapy with the ancient Eastern science of Yoga.
