Looking for World-Class Yoga Training?
As an aspiring yogi, you probably have an interest in embarking on your yoga journey in comfort, and with confidence, alongside experts as you learn the foundations at your own pace, and build on core concepts progressively as each week goes by.
Indaba’s Beginners Yoga Online Course is perfect for both new yoga students and long-term yoga enthusiasts looking to rebuild the foundations of their practice to suit their individual needs. In this course, you will be supported every step of the way as you learn more about how your body moves and develop a deeper understanding of your most common compensation patterns.
Sometimes the best version of the pose, based on your body structure or past injuries, is the less advanced variation of the pose. Being in a space where you can learn to practice with integrity and honesty means you can confidently step into public classes and practice yoga in a way that honours your body.
Sabina has a unique talent for making everyone feel welcome in her class. As a regular Indaba Beginners teacher, Sabina strives to create a safe environment for her students to explore their physical abilities and believes that “Beginner is the New Advanced.” Sabina completed Vinyasa, Yin and Forrest Yoga teacher trainings under incredible teachers (Clare Gates-Sjoblom and Ana T. Forrest) and is also a bodywork practitioner.

Your Personal Yoga Teacher
Unlike your usual class, you can do this whole course anywhere you like, on mobile, tablet or on the web. You will access high-quality video sessions and learn from supporting and inspiring yoga teachers.
Get Feedback on Your Practice
Develop your skills alongside a class of likeminded yogis and receive real feedback on your poses and self-reflections from your dedicated class mentor.
Each session will start with an in-depth exploration of the anatomy of breath. You will explore different breathing techniques (pranayama) and learn their physical and emotional benefits.
You will learn and deconstruct key yoga poses (asana) and learn how to practice them in a functional way so that they’re suitable for your body.
Delving into yoga postures (asanas) again, you will then explore different variations; learning how to up-level, to discern whether up-levelling in a conventional way is the right move for your body, and finding an expression of the pose that works best for you.
By joining the course, you will have access to the following through the Workshop app:
- 4 units, unlocked week by week, guiding you through ~1 hour of guided yoga practice each week
- Additional excercises for you to complete each week, giving you the chance to reflect on your practice

- Access to your course dashboard for a total of 6 months after your start date
- Certificate of Completion once all sessions (including all videos and exercises) have been completed.
Average practice time per week: about 1 hour of guided pratice and about 1 hour of additional exercises

Indaba Yoga Studio, on Workshop
Indaba Yoga Studio believes passionately in the positive benefits of yoga and the great things that can happen when you feel good.
The word Indaba is an ancient African term for “gathering”, and this idea lies at the heart of Indaba – to bring people together, provide the opportunity to step away from daily life, and take the time to reconnect both with ourselves and with the world around us.
Committed to maintaining the highest standards of teaching, space and facilities, they aim to provide fun, uplifting, energising and challenging experiences in which anyone, beginner or expert, can share.
With Workshop’s unique learning experience, they are now able to offer online yoga sessions to people in their own homes, providing in-depth feedback and a close community network just as they do at their studio in London.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to complete sessions at specific times?
Your class will be moving forward at a pace of 1 unit per week, however after each unit is unlocked you have the freedom to complete each session entirely at your own pace. You will also have the ability to schedule your sessions for times that suit your lifestyle.
This course has been carefully designed to make sure the advantages of real-world learning experiences are still embraced online. You will therefore be taken through the subject matter week-by-week to give you the chance to digest what you’ve learnt whilst progressing at a steady pace alongside your classmates.
