What is the introductory course and is it right for me?

Intro2Yoga is an accessible beginners course in which we cover the principles of yoga postures, breathing exercises and meditation in 5 weeks. Because the group is small, we pay a lot of attention to the individual. The pace is somewhat slower than in a regular Basics lesson because we take a lot of time for explanations.

The introductory course is ideal for people who like to be well prepared for their first ‘real’ yoga class. Maybe you’ve never done yoga before, or it’s been a long time. Even if you already have some experience and want to refresh your knowledge, you are very welcome to take the introductory course.

What are we going to do in the introductory course?

In this course we will mainly exercise together. Each week a different body part is central:

  • Hands and feet
  • Legs and hips
  • Core and twist
  • Shoulders and arms
  • Combination

During the last lesson we combine all this in a basic lesson as you will find on the schedule: the Basics »


Functional Yoga

At Open Yoga we work from Functional Yoga, which in short means that we recognize that everyone is different, and that every yoga posture looks different per person. We do not look for the perfect picture or what the posture “should” look like. We don’t try to force our bodies into a position; we try to shape the posture to our own body.
