Our Beginners Courses

Come and learn Yoga in a way that is designed to suit you, and in an environment that is calm and clear. Develop a practice that is appropriate for you specifically and which will evolve and change as you need it to. Yoga can create the conditions for a healthy life, for less stress and worry, for more vitality and enjoyment, which especially these days, is exactly what we all need.

These Courses consist of an Introductory Workshop on a Saturday from 12.30 – 2.30pm, which marks the start of four weeks during which the student may attend as many classes per week as they wish. They should aim to attend as often as possible as this is the best way to establish a practice habit and to learn the sequence quickly.

Learn More About Our Beginners Courses

At Ashtanga Yoga Dublin we get to know each student and work with them on an individual basis, focusing on their specific needs and particular requirements. Everyone learns the same practice but in a way which is appropriate to them, as each body is different, each person’s breath is different, as is everyone’s experience and expectation.

At the Workshop, students are given a comprehensive introduction to Ashtanga Yoga, its background, aims and practices. They will learn about the Vinyasa system of Breath co-ordinated movement, and the practice of Bandhas(energy locks) and Drishti (gazing points to aid concentration), Surya Namaskara (sun salutations) as well as the fundamental standing Asanas (postures). Over the course of the next 4 weeks students learn the complete standing sequence, part of the seated sequence and some finishing sequence postures.

Throughout the course emphasis is placed on developing correct breathing and learning principles of movement which protect and strengthen the body. Our teaching approach is very much based on precision and correct alignment in postures, ensuring that students develop a strong foundation from the outset and a clear understanding of the vinyasa system of Ashtanga Yoga. This means that within a four week period it is possible to develop a personal Yoga practice.

 

What You Will Need

Students will need to have a Yoga Mat. Specialist Yoga mats can be bought at the School. They must bring a good-sized towel with them and should wear clothes they can move comfortably in. Ashtanga Yoga generates heat so leggings, shorts, T-shirts etc. are best!
