Beginners & Improvers Yoga

Claire runs regular Yoga Courses for Beginner and Improvers in Cardiff.  Her classes offer something for everyone, whether you are completely new to yoga or a seasoned yogi.  We explore a wide variety of poses, flowing sequences, breathing practices and relaxations.  In class, students are offered a variety of modifications and alternatives so they can work within the perimeters of their ability, learn to listen to their body and adapt their practice as and when they need to. 


Our yoga for beginners classes are designed for students new to yoga or those wishing to enjoy a slower paced practice and go ‘back to basics’.

During the classes we look at some of the key basic postures regularly practiced in yoga; including standing postures, twists, forward bends, back bends, sun salutations and ways to link these together in simple flowing sequences.

We explore the postures in detail and learn the importance of alignment and letting go of effort to help you to achieve stability, ease and comfort. I will also help you to listen to your body and breath, and show you ways to adapt the postures to accommodate any injuries / health issues or just to modify for what you need each time you step onto the mat.

Finally, we look at different breathing techniques and their importance in helping you to find focus, quieten the mind and help you relax. The classes are informal and I encourage you to ask as many questions as you need to ensure you come away from each class with a clear understanding of the practices.

Yumi Yoga’s Improvers Yoga classes are designed to capture the essence of Dynamic Flow Yoga. Based on the principles of Ashtanga Vinyasa, we practice continuous, flowing sequences of postures co-ordinating each movement with breath awareness.

Our Improvers Yoga classes are suitable for those with a good level of general fitness and preferably some experience of yoga (although beginners are welcome too).

We structure the classes as 6-week rolling terms, with a different theme every term. Week by week we adapt and add postures so there is a familiarity to the flow, but no two classes are the same. The nature of the continuous flow ensures each student benefits from a dynamic practice. We offer adjustments and modifications throughout the class to ensure all students enjoy the practice at their own pace.
