We know that starting yoga can be unnerving and exciting all at once. There’s just so much about yoga out there – so many opinions, styles and different approaches to doing it and to teaching it. It can be quite hard to know how to start. Because of this, we take the responsibility and honour of guiding you through your first yoga classes seriously. Beginners can expect a relaxed yoga experience with an approachable, experienced yoga teacher.
Not only did the studio at The Yoga Room have a warm and inviting atmosphere, but Kaya was wonderful. She made me feel very comfortable with my limited abilities, even after I had face-planted onto my mat. She was really engaging, enthusiastic and encouraging throughout the beginners course and I have come away feeling inspired to carry on with my yoga journey.
I did the beginners yoga course at The Yoga Room with my sister, under the wonderful guidance of Kaya. I didn’t have a clue about what to expect and, having done less than a handful of yoga classes before, knew I’d be starting off at ground zero which was a bit intimidating. Kaya immediately put me at ease – she went round to each of us before class started to connect personally. The studio itself is a very relaxing space, which certainly helps set the tone. Kaya strikes the perfect balance of being approachable and chatty yet incredibly professional. Kaya adjusted us all where necessary but also made it clear that we should let our bodies guide our movement. My downward dog was a sight to behold, but I felt comfortable knowing that that was what my body was capable of at the time. Thanks to Kaya for the positive reinforcement. I learnt so much from my time with her and feel excited to continue my journey.
There will always be people who can do it better than you, but that's a good thing! Start to see competition as inspiration — without envy.
