Intro to Hatha Yoga

8wk Beginners Yoga Course, with Senior Yoga Teacher, Chris Croft

New to Yoga?

Start at the beginning, with beginners.

The 8-week Intro to Yoga Beginners Course is our comprehensive introduction to the foundations of Hatha Yoga – the root of most yoga styles practiced in the west. Designed specifically for complete yoga beginners, this step-by-step course will slowly introduce basic yoga postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), mindfulness practices and deep relaxation exercises.

As your experience and confidence grows (sufficient to attend drop-in classes) you will also learn how simple yoga techniques can be integrated into your daily life to improve your sleep, relieve aches and pains, lower your stress levels and quieten your busy mind.

Open to all ages and ability levels. Perfect for complete yoga beginners or yoga students with less than a year’s yoga practice.

Yoga Equipment

Please bring your own yoga mat. Yoga mats are available to buy from the studio reception. Owning your own yoga mat will help you build confidence and make progress in between classes at the studio and after the course has finished.

Any other yoga props required during class (eg straps, blocks, blankets or bolsters) will be provided by the studio.

*Yoga Mat SPECIAL OFFER: The product included in this offer is a OEKO-TEX beginners yoga mat (rrp £35). Please collect your yoga mat from studio reception when you arrive for your first class of your 8-week beginners course.

"Fantastic yoga experience for me as a rusty practitioner starting again and my partner who was totally new to yoga. Chris was absolutely brilliant, professional and expert but down to earth and funny as well. Highly highly recommend to all"
"I had been thinking of trying yoga for years but was too shy / nervous / embarrassed about my complete lack of stretchiness. I took the plunge with the Complete Beginners course and it has been excellent. Chris is a wonderful yoga teacher and he has obviously put a lot of time and thought into creating a course that teaches beginners some basic (but challenging!) yoga in a non-intimidating and structured way. Time passes quickly in his lessons and I always leave feeling much better than when I started. Chris can also be very funny -who knew that smiling takes any yoga pose from ‘Beginner’ to ‘Advanced’"
"I was really nervous going to my first ever yoga class, didn't really know what to expect and was worried I will look silly as a complete beginner and other people would look at me, but it's been the best 8 days out of my life in the last 8 weeks! Wednesdays have become my favourite day of the week and I can't wait to get in and just switch off from everything else. It's been truly transformative experience. Yoga teacher, Chris is absolutely amazing, explains everything in great detail, helps adjust Your body when it's needed, really patient, supportive, grounded and with great sense of humour. Yoga studio is beautiful and has this sense of calm and safety about it. Great people. I loved every minute, even though it's been painful at times. I highly recommend, and if You are thinking about it and want to do something good for yourself, then do this. It definitely made the difference in my life and if you allow it, it will make a difference in Your life too"
"Just completed a beginner's course at the Exeter Yoga Workshop. The studio is clean, welcoming and a great size i.e. not so big to be impersonal, not so small to be overly intimate. Chris is a great teacher; patient, knowledgeable and good humoured. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to explore hatha yoga in a comfortable, supportive way in a lovely space"
"I just wanted to express how much I’m enjoying your classes and learning Yoga. You create a really warm and welcoming environment, as well as a very fun and challenging one too. Yoga has really made a positive impact and I’m really looking forward to continuing the journey"
"I started this course as a complete beginner and the level has been just right. The sessions are definitely challenging, but delivered in a fun and accessible way. I have already signed up for more!"
