Be prepared for your class
what should I wear?
Clothing should be discreet enough, easy to stretch in and comfortable. We practice without shoes or socks on. Clean bare feet are better for everyone.
what should I bring?We provide mats, belts, bolsters, and blocks. We like you to bring a towel if possible to place over our blankets to help keep them clean. You may of course bring your own yoga mat, eye patches and a water bottle if you like.
can I eat before class?It is best not to eat a heavy meal any closer than three hours before class (a light snack one hour before is usually okay). Although you can drink water during the class, if required, we prefer you having a sensible amount to drink before the class starts and then trying to get through the class without further interruption.
when should I arrive?Try to arrrive 10 - 15 minutes before your class begins. Please check carefully the daily yoga class timetable.
what things might disrupt the class?
PLEASE turn off your mobile phone! A ringing (or vibrating!) phone can disrupt your concentration and everyone else’s.
YOGA is an inward journey. Talking during class is rarely the right approach as it can distract and will often reduce the effectiveness of the practice.
what if I have some physical problems or medical conditions?
If the problem is more serious you should consult your doctor about any restrictions they want applied AND you should tell your teacher before the class starts.
New students are required to fill in a registration form detailing any physical problems or medical conditions before starting Yoga with us.
what if I am pregnant or menstruating?
If you are an exisiting student and you become pregnant you should inform you teacher. Over time your teacher will suggest modifications which are usually appropriate. Meditation and relaxation are especially beneficial for both mother and child.
New students who are pregnant should only attend Easy and Foundation classes as General classes are mostly inappropriate, especially as your pregnancy develops. Sorry, but you must modfiy your Yoga practice during pregnancy.
If you are menstruating you should work more passively and you should also avoid inverted poses. There is plenty of information on the web and in books which suggests the wisdom of this approach. Please be sensible and learn to treat your natural body systems with respect.
