We provide guidance and handouts for home practice so that you can learn to make Yoga, and the many benefits of Yoga, a part of your life.

Yoga is often seen as an exercise routine nowadays, but really it is much more than that. At its best, Yoga is a truly holistic system which benefits every aspect of our lives.

It is the combination of Yoga postures with breathing, relaxation and meditation which makes Yoga such an effective system for promoting health and well-being.

At Sheffield Yoga School we teach a comprehensive range of Yoga practices; there really is something for everyone!

Beginner Yoga Classes

 

At Sheffield Yoga School we take a systematic approach to learning and developing the practice of Yoga. If we get the foundations of our practice right from the start then everything we do in Yoga will be so much more rewarding.

Our beginner classes include posture work, breathing techniques, deep relaxation and meditation.

We teach a ‘classical’ system of Yoga, which incorporates the whole person. It maintains the strength and flexibility of the body, promotes health and well being; it teaches us to live with awareness, to be present, so that we can fully engage with life and fulfill our potential.

The beauty of this system of Yoga is that it retains a vast wealth and depth of Yoga practices; there really is something for everyone.

Practical Meditation – For Every Day Use!

 

Our next Yoga & Meditation Course will start on Thursday 26th January .

This will be a 7 week course and the subject will be ‘Practical meditation – For Every Day Use!’

Classes will be 7.30 – 8.30am and will take place in our Yoga Centre on South Road in walkley.
The fee for the course is £45.00 .

The course will consist of Yoga posture work, some breathing practices and a selection of meditation techniques which you can use on a daily basis.

Often the very best techniques in Yoga are the simplest ones; these are the ones we can actually use. It is through regular practice that we go deeper into meditation and it is through regular practice that the benefits of meditation begin to show in our lives.

The course will begin on Thursday 26th January.
There will be a two break during the last two weeks of February (so no classes on the 16th or 23rd February).
The final class will be on 23rd March.

This course is for taking our practice into daily life and making it part of our routine, part of what we do.

If you would like to book a place please contact us.
