BASICS OF YOGA – 6 week Course

Next 6 week Beginner Course will start on Thursday 1 August  from 7.15-8.30 pm with Monika Legerska the founder of the Centre for Higher Self.

After 15 years of experience in teaching yoga I took some time to restructure our beginners course. In the six weeks we will have a look at and experience yoga in a holistic way.

So give yourself some time. Come to yoga and its fundamental basics and discover its profound benefits on your body, mind and soul.

We will start with the awareness of your breath and your mind and learn how to incorporate it not only into your yoga practice but also into your daily life. With easy and short home practices you will get a chance to develop your own home daily practice and establish positive changes in your life.

Over the six weeks we will also:

  • look at the correct alignment of basic yoga postures (asanas)
  • strengthen of your core and back muscles
  • learn by heart a variation of Sun Salutation sequence for your home practice
  • practice balancing poses
  • learn pranayama – nourishing breathing practices
  • relax and connect to your inner peace

This course is suitable to anyone who wishes to deepen their understandings of yoga and specially of ones own mind.

“Yoga is not only a disciple of the body but especially of the mind.”

I look forward to seeing you on the mat 🙂
