New to yoga? Beginners Yoga is for you.

Beginners Yoga classes can be a brilliant way to get to grips with the basics or refresh your practice if you’ve been off the mat for a while. Or maybe you’re looking to kick-start your yoga practice or try this new hobby with a Beginners Yoga Course this January?

At Yogarise Peckham and Streatham studios we have in-person Beginners Yoga classes every week. They are £18 drop-in and we always recommend pre-booking in advance (especially in January!) via the Peckham Timetable and Streatham Timetable. Our Intro Offer is a great way to explore what we have to offer too 🙂

This January 2024, we have a special 4-week Beginners Yoga Course starting on Wednesday 10th January 6.30-7.30pm at Yogarise Peckham. The course is taught by Yogarise lead Teacher Trainer, Senior Yoga Teacher, Becky Farbstein.

Becky has a down-to-earth style that combines philosophy (and how it applies to us in this day-and-age), practical aspects of yoga (how functional movement and mobility can truly benefit your day-to-day life!) and good humour. She believes in making yoga accessible to all, and her four week beginners yoga course will cover all the basics and provide a good grounding before exploring the full Yogarise timetable – safely and with confidence. From dynamic vinyasa sessions, to gentle yoga, yin yoga to 4-beat, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Some top tips…

  • First time at the studio? Always pre-book and arrive at least 10-15 minutes early to familiarise yourself with the space, lock away valuables, and so you don’t miss the all-important start of class. In Streatham there is no receptionist so once class is checked in by the teacher, the front door is locked.
  • Practising from home? Set up your space. Clear room around your mat, lie it out. Gather a blanket, cushion and perhaps an eye mask if you want to have options for relaxation.
  • Bring a bottle of water (we have taps in reception to refill).
  • Wear comfortable clothing that you won’t get too hot in. We recommend leggings, loose lightweight trousers or shorts. Tracksuit bottoms can sometimes be quite sweaty once you get moving, but it’s up to you!
  • Bring a friend! 🙂
