how should I prepare for my class?

It is advisable not to eat a heavy meal before attending class.  As a guideline, allow 2hrs after a light snack or 4hrs after a heavy meal. Drink plenty of water, come hydrated! Switch off electronic devices; anything that dings, rings or buzzes should be SWITCHED OFF during class.

can anyone practice yoga?

Yes. Yoga is suitable for all ages and abilities, young/old, fit/unfit, men/women, any ethnic origin, any religious background. Yoga has no boundaries or exclusions but our yoga classes do involve physical activity that might not work for some people.  If you have an old or a new  injury or medical condition please inform your teacher so that we can give you modifications to guide you safely into the postures.

 

injuries & contraindications

If you have any medical concerns, are suffering with an injury or medical condition, it is imperative that you seek advice from your GP or healthcare practitioner BEFORE attending a yoga class. If you have an injury or illness, there may be some yoga poses that need to be modified or avoided. Please seek advice from your Teacher before the class starts. Please be aware and understanding if the Teacher advises you against taking the class - this is for your own benefit and safety.  It is your responsibility to notify the teacher of any injuries (new or ongoing) before every class. Always work to your own ability and respect the limitations of your body.

 

punctuality

Please aim to arrive 5 minutes before your class starts, allowing time to check-in and pay, remove your shoes and socks, and gather any props you’ll need for class.  The class will start promptly at the specified time. To avoid disruption, late attendance is not permitted.

A simple text saying 'I'm not coming today' is acceptable!  If you fail to cancel your reservation, non attendance will incur a 100% cancellation fee.
