This course is suitable for people who have completed the beginners Yoga course and who have a knowledge of preliminary postures including forward and backward bends, sideward stretches and Spinal twists and balance postures .

This course will progress from basic physical postures up to the practice of Surya Namaskar (Salutation to the Sun) over the 10 week course in a systematic progression .
As well as developing strength through postures , there will be more awareness of breathing practices ( Pranayama ) to increase stillness of mind and body and to create more energy and strengthen the immune system.
The practice of Yoga Nidra ( guided meditation ) will continue going deeper and developing an awareness of the senses to help to take a step back from life and develop internal resources to deal with stresses of life.
