Beginners - Yoga Foundations


This class is taught by:

Helen McMurdo

Helen began practicing yoga in 2004 and was a regular practitioner of Hatha and Vinyasa for many years, but it wasn't until joining Yoga Village as a student in 2012 that her yoga deepened to a committed daily practice. As her practice continued to deepen, Helen gained her teacher training in Hatha Vinyasa yoga over an eight-month period through Yoga Village's teacher training program. True to her Hatha Vinyasa roots, Helen believes in creating some heat and fire in a yoga practice, whilst balancing strength with softness in each individual pose.

Helen's classes focus on cultivating three key feelings: strength, openness and clarity; applying a science-based approach to asana together with yogic traditions.

Asha Daniels


Trained in India under Master Teachers from the Bihar School of Yoga, Asha is a qualified ERYT 500 Hatha Yoga Instructor and has conducted classes and training workshops in India for 4 years before moving to Sydney in September 2014.

While in India Asha gained a strong foundation in Hatha Yoga as her primary practice and then moved to Ashtanga which gradually and steadily started to play a bigger role as her primary practice. She now currently follows and practices the Ashtanga method and loves the affects it plays on her teaching style and personal journey.
Our Foundations classes are for students who are fairly new to Yoga or who wish to focus on the basic foundations of their yoga practice. These classes will bring you back to the basics, teaching the fundamentals of basic poses and transitions that you will find in the general Hatha classes.
 
Running much like a course, these classes run on a 5 week rotation after which students will be properly prepared to attend general classes. Students can join at any time, and so long as you attend for 5 weeks all the material will be covered.
 
It is recommended students initially attend 2-3 times per week to gain all the benefits and growth that this practice can offer.
