Preparing for Meeta
Meeta's yoga classes are well known in and around Southampton as a bit of a challenge, and yes, she will always help you to find your limits .. let this fact encourage you, not deter you!
Each yoga class with Meeta is a wonderful experience - every class is developed by Meeta there and then, as the class progresses to compliment the individuals on their mats right here, right now.
Meeta's classes are open to experienced practitioners and beginners alike. Many new yogis will just join a class and pick it up as they go along, and that is great ..
.. However, it is never a bad idea to first do an introductory course to cover the basics, answer all the questions and become familiar with the studio environment.
This 5-class course is designed to introduce newcomers to our wonderful activity of yoga, providing step-by-step guidance on how to get into the basic yoga postures - and how to move between them - plus some simple discussion on yoga philosophy.
Our objective is to ensure that on completion of the course participants are comfortable in their knowledge of basic yoga and their ability to achieve a wide range of postures and techniques.
I have practised very regularly under Meeta's instruction since 2005.
Encouraged by several of Meeta's other students, in Jan 2020 I went off to India and competed my 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training course under the brilliant Vijay Dutt at Pratham Yoga, Rishikesh.
In a previous life I trained as a course designer and instructor in the Royal Navy. This has combined perfectly with my long-time yoga practise, enabling me to design and deliver this beginners' course for MeetaYoga.
In all things, I am passionate about getting the basics right before adding the bells and whistles - and so in this 5 week course I will take you on a journey through the absolute basics, from studio etiquette, through the breathing techniques and posture groups, and along the way a potted history of yoga philosophy.
Our classes will be relaxed and we will have a bit of fun as together we explore the fundamentals.
The Tuesday evenings course which commenced on 11 January at Meeta's Pentire studio is fully booked and no longer open to new students.
The next course will run on 5 consecutive Wednesdays beginning 2nd March.
