Iyengar Yoga for Beginners

Beginner Level

Yoga Jivana’s beginner, or Yoga Basics classes are recommended for those new to yoga.

This level emphasises the basics of Iyengar Yoga and concentrates on standing yoga poses, forward bends, twists & relaxation.

Attending these classes will help you experience more flexibility and develop your core strength, de-stress your life, and give you skills to relax both your body and mind enabling you to enjoy greater well-being.

Duration of the class is 1 hour 15 mins.

Our classes and courses are structured to assist you to move through the yoga class levels at your own pace. So if you are a beginner and attend a yoga basics class, you can be sure that the class is specifically designed only for beginners.

When you feel you need a more challenging class you can consult the teachers at Yoga Jivana or simply attend a Yoga Intermediate 1 class. You also have the freedom to join a yoga class when it suits you, (term courses need booking) as well as change the days you attend. Yoga Basics Courses require registration and pre booking as numbers are limited.

“I love the way I feel after a yoga class – energised & really relaxed”


“After completing a term course I found I could do things I hadn’t been able to do for ages… like touch my toes!”


“Out of all the exercise I do, nothing makes me feel the way yoga does.”
