My yoga library will be available of books, magazines and some media.

The yoga foundation group in 2015 really enjoyed the breadth of the coFoundation Courseurse. Chance to learn new techniques while exploring their own yoga. Foundation course  Aum in nature

Lorna enjoyed Patanjali’s advice to help sit with ease in pranayama and meditation. Angela and Michele found the most from Asanas like Trikonasana and balance of Vrkasana.

Students have gone onto further study with the Yoga Foundation course II, and others considering the BWY modules in Meditation and Pranayama as well as Teaching Diploma.

Yoga Foundation CourseThe Venues

The main venue for the Yoga Foundation course is the Old School in Cumnor. Fingers crossed for a couple of days in Old Headington allow us to enjoy al fresco yoga, if the weather permits.

Cumnor is accessible by bus no 4 connecting from central Oxford and the central train station and bus link to villages through to Abingdon. Likewise Old Headington Village hall links with no. 13, which gives us some space outside for yoga alfresco weather permitting.
