Learn the fundamentals of the Ashtanga yoga practice in a slow, safe and comprehensive manner. This structured course is perfect for complete beginners to yoga or those who would like to deepen their understanding of the Ashtanga yoga system.

With a set sequence of postures and a unique system of breath synchronised movement, this style of yoga creates heat in the body, making you sweat, allowing you to move freely and release toxins. A regular yoga practice brings strength and flexibility in the body and focus and clarity in the mind. Ashtanga yoga will complement and enhance any other training or exercise programs you are undertaking. It'll help you move and breathe more efficiently, feel more relaxed and centred. It's physically challenging and will increase strength and improve flexibility - it'll be the best thing you do this year!

In this six week course you will learn Sun Salutations, the fundamental standing postures and be introduced to some of the seated postures with modifications if required. You'll also learn the correct breathing techniques and begin to learn the philosophy of the Ashtanga yoga system. You'll learn a little bit about the Mysore style approach to Ashtanga too.

Over the course we'll break down the sequence of postures. Each week we'll work on a bit more of the sequence building on prior weeks and you'll be given homework to practise between classes! Once you've completed the course you'll be ready to attend any of the regular classes on the timetable.

It's important that you attend all classes in the course.

Our first ever 108 Sun Salutations challenge last Christmas was such a resounding success you said we just have to do it again!

Here's how it works - you commit to perform 108 Sun Salutations either on your own or as part of a group. We're also asking you to raise sponsorship and we're suggesting you aim for £108. The thing is, it doesn't matter how much or how little you raise as every little bit of cash raised truly does help Yogability to provide free yoga for children with special needs and their families, right here in Glasgow.

If you don't think you can make it through 108 Sun Salutations by yourself, join as a team and share the effort - the more the merrier! No team? Don't worry as we can form a team on the day and you just take a breather whenever you need to.

Registration costs £20 per participant and includes:

• Participation in the event on 20 December 2014;
• Sponsorship form for you to raise the funds for the charity
• Exclusive 108 Sun Salutations t-shirt;
• Festive buffet lunch with Fresh Spiced Chai and mince pies;
• Glass or two of something fizzy to celebrate your achievements!

Remember 100% of all the money we take goes directly to Yogability for children with special needs and their families.

There was a fantastic turn out last so please hurry and book your place early - it'll spur you on to get fundraising too!

Give back to our community, be part of something special and help!
