Absolute Beginners Yoga Course with Nadia Stinga Rihani Next held on Tue, 5 Feb 2019 at 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm
This enrollment runs from Tue 5 Feb 2019 - Thu 21 Feb 2019
Want to learn the basics of a yoga practice before attending regular classes?

When you learn to drive a car you start with the basics so that when venturing out on the road for the first time you already know how to use the breaks, check your blind spot etc so that you are safe. The same should apply to a physical yoga practice. Before venturing out in to group classes you should understand the foundations of the practise, such as breathing, sun salutes, standing, seated and basic back bends.

In order to fully integrate yoga in to your life and to feel a genuine difference in your life yoga really needs to be practiced regularly, i.e. more than twice a week. For this reason this course will take place over three weeks, on Monday and Wednesday evenings, with some home practice to take with you for homework. In this way, by the time you have completed the course you will have complete confidence to attend our regular group classes.

Each week we will run through a beginners sequence and will have a special focus on one of the below listed topics. Your teacher will offer appropriate variations depending on your mobility and strength, as well as accommodating any injuries or issues you may be having within the practice.

  • Breathing/Basic Relaxation / Meditation
  • Sun Salutations
  • Standing Poses
  • Seated Poses
  • Basic Inversions

 

About Nadia Stinga Rihani

Nadia is honoured to be a Level 2 Authorised Ashtanga teacher, and was given her blessing to teach this method by Sharath Jois in 2014 after practicing yoga since 1999 and the Ashtanga method for ten years. Yoga has had a profound impact of Nadia's life and has carried her through the extreme highs and lows over the years, providing a sense of stability and grounding, including through pregnancy the the birth of her and Gabriels daughter, Indhira. Now practicing Advanced A from the Ashtanga Series, Nadia shares her experience in the traditional Mysore Style classes as taught to her through her teacher, Sharath Jois.
Nadia first found the yoga mat whilst studying at university and really felt changed by the practice when she began daily practice in her first job after completing her studies.
After living in the USA, Italy and Portugal Nadia returned home and discovered the Ashtanga method which she found life changing. She completed her teacher training and apprenticeship in 2009 and after many years of study Nadia left her corporate career to focus on teaching. In 2011 founded Yoga Village with the intention of creating an authentic and traditional space in which students could practice and teachers could facilitate their learnings.

Since 2010 Nadia has travelled to India each year for intensive self study and practice, from which she sources inspiration for her teaching and life.

Nadia is extremely grateful to be walking on this path and to be able to share the joy and pain of a sincere yoga practice with her students.
