Frequently Asked Questions

Can I do yoga even if I am not flexible?

Don't avoid yoga just because you think you aren't flexible. If you have tight muscles, yoga is just the thing to gently loosen you up. The point is not to show off how flexible you are, but rather to become more supple over time whilst enjoying the many health benefits of yoga.

What should I bring to classes?

For your own comfort and hygiene we suggest bringing your own mat, but we do usually have a few spare for new students to borrow during their first classes. It is advisable to bring a bottle of water.

What should I wear?

Choose light clothing which is comfortable and will not restrict your movements. It is handy to wear a few layers that can easily be removed and put back on as you warm up and cool down during the session.

Can I eat before the class?

A full stomach can cause discomfort during a class. It is advisable to allow 3 hours to digest a heavy meal or 60 minutes for a light snack before attending a class.

When should I arrive for a class?

Please arrive 10 minutes before the stated start time, to allow enough time to get prepared and settled before the class begins.

Can I drop in to course classes?

Courses are normally fully booked in advance, but occasionally there are spaces in a class for new students or casual drop-in attendance. Please call to check availability first. If you are a complete beginner we suggest that you join at the beginning of a term, or within 2 weeks, to ensure everyone can progress at the same rate.

Can I do yoga while I am pregnant?

Yes. Yoga can be very beneficial in pregnancy, helping your breathing and relaxation, as well as relieving emotional stress. It can also be a good way to meet other mums-to-be. Some classes may not be suitable, so do check with us first. You should not do yoga during the first 3 months of pregnancy.

When do I pay?

Drop-in classes may be paid in cash or by cheque on arrival to the class. Courses should be pre-booked and paid in advance by cash, cheque or bank transfer.

What if I have to miss a class?

As a place on a pre-booked course has been reserved for you, we cannot give refunds for any missed classes. If you do need to miss a class, please let us know at the earliest opportunity and we will try to offer a space at an alternative class within the same week, if one is available. For one to one sessions a 24 hour cancellation notice is required.

Yoga is a light which, once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.
