Beginners yoga classes with Erling offer a safe, gentle, but thorough introduction to a humanly sustainable yoga practice. I teach small classes where I can give the proper attention students need to learn a safe approach to hatha yoga.

Yoga is not just about stretching
My take on a yoga practice is that it should support our normal human functional range of movement. Yoga should not impede on our evolutionary ability to move well and with ease. We need to learn how to listen to our bodies through feeling our felt sensations via our nervous system. If we can do that, we have the chance to undo deeply routed habitual patterns, that no end of stretching, pushing and pushing will undo.
Yoga for life & beginners
We want to practice and re-habituate movements that complement our everyday lives. These are the simple and often overlooked tasks like getting down and up from the floor without assistance and bending forward to pick things up and reaching above our heads. Yoga can help you notice yourself and thus create a better life to live into our old age.
In my beginner’s yoga classes, there is no pressure to perform, to achieve significant stretches. I encourage students to feel what they are doing. The feeling of movement, of how we notice ourselves is very advanced yoga. You don’t need to be flexible to be a yogi, beginner or advanced.
Scaravelli inspired yoga for beginners
The power of yoga to benefit the practitioner seems to arise- at least in part from nothing more complicated than the release of physiological and psychological tension and the quieting of the mind.William J. Broad
William J Broad concluded this in his excellent book The Science of Yoga (Washington Post Review). I completely agree with his findings; yoga should release tension and my Scaravelli inspired yoga approach to teaching beginners yoga or advanced has the central aim to do this.
There is no better time to start a beginners yoga class than now. If you want to help yourself improve the quality of life as you gently age, then a sensitive, intelligent approach to yoga practice, informed by contemporary understanding of how humans work and differ, is the way forward. My beginner’s yoga classes are just this.
It is easy to start, book now.
