FAQ/New to Yoga?
What should I wear to class?
There is no standard yoga attire – Comfortable clothes that allow you to move and stretch easily. Layers are best, as you build heat in the body during practice and then cool down during the relaxation stage. For safety reasons shoes and socks are not worn in class.
Do I need my own mat?
We have a limited number of mats available for general use by students. However, you are welcome to bring your own mat to class.
What can I expect in my first Beginner’s Class?
The Beginners Class is for complete beginners, people who would like to refresh their knowledge of yoga or those who prefer a softer class. The typical class format will commence with warm ups which may include a focus on breath work, progress on to a series of yoga poses and culminate with a guided relaxation. Yoga for Beginners will allow you to enjoy the full benefits and joys of yoga. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and you are free to ask questions about anything that is not clear to you. Every journey begins with one single step..let your yoga journey begin here.
What is an open level class?
An open level class is suitable for beginners who want a slightly more challenging practice as well as more experienced students. In this class you will learn new postures and refine familiar ones while cultivating strength, stamina, balance, flexibility and self-awareness. This class will leave you both energized and relaxed.
What is the difference between classes and workshops?
Classes are held on a regular basis every week. They may be taken on a drop-in basis. Advance registration is not required for the lunchtime drop in class but students should text in advance if they are attending any evening class on a drop in basis to ensure there is room in the class.
Workshops run in finite sessions. Advance registration is always required, and enrolment must be for an entire session. Workshops generally focus on more specific themes e.g. Pregnancy Yoga. Yoga for Menopause etc
What about Health issues, Injuries?
No experience or flexibility is required to practise yoga.
However If you have a health issue (illness, injury, or medical condition), please notify the teacher before the class. Not every pose is appropriate for everyone.
