Tutorials for Beginnrs

We have a collection of online yoga tutorials to support beginners and those newer to vinyasa flow.  Take a look here.

New to Yoga?

People have a lot of preconceptions about yoga.  There are an enormous range of yoga styles and practices so people have their preferences. It  is a very individual experience.

The best thing we can recommend in general is to try a variety of class styles, teachers and see what you like and enjoy. The best yoga for  you is the one that you want to return to! 

At Mandala Yoga we really welcome beginners. The classes are multi-level and in each class we have a mix of new and regular practitioners. Regardless where you are in your practice, we are sure you will enjoy the experience of simply moving and simply breathing.

So come to class, leave any expectations at the door and dedicate this time to yourself.
