Autumn Yoga Course for Beginners
Autumn Yoga Course for Beginners at Ziębówka
Every Tuesday from October 9th to December 18th
Time: 09:00 – 10:30 and a second group at 18:00 – 19:30
I warmly invite you to the autumn yoga course for beginners. We meet every Tuesday in the atmospheric hall of Ziębówka. We will work with the unique method of Svastha Yoga, which aims to cultivate balance in both mind and body not only when we are on the mat but also when we step off it and return to our daily lives.
During each session, we focus on integrating movement with breath, strengthening our bodies, doing gentle stretches, and relaxing. I will also introduce you to rejuvenating breathing techniques and meditation practices. My wish is for you to be able to enjoy the benefits of yoga in your daily life after completing over two months of this course, even beyond the walls of Ziębówka.
My name is Karolina Zięba, and as you may have guessed, I am your yoga instructor. I teach in a style that emphasises individualised and balanced practice. The most important thing for me is that each individual practices for themselves, at their own pace, in harmony with their body and state of mind.
With an 11-year yoga journey, I’ve honed my practice across diverse locations: from Poland and the Czech Republic to Nepal, India, and Iran. A pivotal chapter unfolded in Bali, where I fulfilled a cherished aspiration by completing the Svastha Yoga of Krischnamacharya Teacher Training Program (Yoga Alliance RYS 200) under Dr. Ganesha Mohana’s guidance.
I conduct classes in small groups because I believe that this approach is the most beneficial. By education, passion, and heart, I am an orientalist specialised in Iranian studies.
ABOUT OUR SESSIONS:
- We meet regularly on Tuesdays for 1.5 hours.
- We follow a well-planned program, gradually learning about our bodies and exploring our individual capabilities in a close-knit group setting.
- The level of the classes is adjusted to the students’ abilities and modified according to their needs.
- After two months, you will have a solid foundation in yoga, allowing you to continue practicing on your own, or perhaps we will decide to continue practicing together at Ziębówka – we’ll decide later 🙂
- There is space on the mat for silence and focus, as well as for laughter and relaxation.
In the Program:
- BASIC ASANAS – learning yoga postures and their variations.
- INTRODUCTION TO PRANAYAMA – learning proper breathing techniques and the basics of breath control.
- CONCENTRATION TECHNIQUES – simple techniques to improve concentration and some exercises in basic mindfulness.
- WORKING WITH BANDHAS – learning about bandhas, how to use them, and applying them mindfully in asanas and sometimes in life.
- THEORY SESSION – a concise overview of yoga theory. We’ll ask questions and seek answers together.
