Ashtanga Yoga Beginners’ Course Level 1 – Studio & Zoom


Ashtanga Yoga Beginners’ Course Level 1 – Studio & Zoom

6 March 2021 - 20 March 2021

Full price: £130

Course intention

The Ashtanga yoga beginners course is designed to provide our new students with the fundamental foundations of yoga. Our intention is to introduce you to the health-giving and joy-bringing powers of yoga. We truly believe that yoga helps us discover our incredible self-healing faculty, bringing more balance to our daily life.

Course modules

  • We will explore your breathing patterns and help you create harmonious ways for guiding your breath during yoga practice and daily life.
  • We will learn the sequence of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, starting with the two sun salutes, the standing postures and a short introduction to the finishing series. We will support you in finding your own style, keeping it simple, balanced, safe, inspiring and uplifting.
  • We will help you develop or improve your concentration skills through experiencing drishti (the yogic gaze technique). We will practise it during our postural sequences and help you take it further into your daily life to support your intention and give more focus to your life choices.
  • We will prepare your mind and body for the safe practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, through the exploration of the body energy locks (bandhas), observing how these subtle but powerful tools bring about balance and focus.

Course students

We keep this course intimate with a maximum of 6 students at the studio and few on Zoom. Welcome novices to yoga and those who are new to the Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga method.

Course teacher

The course will be led by Irina Pashkevich Bourdier, the founder of Iriness and a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals. Visit the About page for more information about Irina.

Course timeline

The course duration is 4 weeks and includes about 20 hours of theory and practice:

  • 3 x 2h  Saturday sessions at 10:00am (March 6, 13, 20) and
  • 8 x 1h30-1h45 week day classes during 4-5 weeks. Any class on our schedule (Classes page) can be attended.

We recommend attending the regular classes twice a week to help your newly acquired knowledge settle in your mind and body. But we will allow 5 weeks to complete all 8 classes, if need be.

Course price

The course price is £130 (£7/h), which includes 3 x 2h Saturday sessions and 8 x 1h30-1h45 regular weekday classes.

Cancellations made at least 14 calendar days before a workshop will be refunded. Between 13 days and 48 hrs there will be no refund unless we can fill your place before the workshop commences. In this case your fee will be refunded minus 10% administration & transaction fee. Should the event be cancelled by Iriness Yoga & Wellbeing, you will be offered a refund or, if you prefer, a credit against future events or regular classes.
