What shall I wear?

Comfortable and loose fitting clothes, for example shorts or leggings and short-sleeved t-shirt. Bring something warmer to wear during relaxation so that you don’t get cold.

Do I have to bring a yoga mat?

Yes if you have one, but if you do not we have some spare mats which you can borrow.  We also have new mats available for purchase.

I have heard I need lots of other things like straps and blocks.  Is this true?

We do sometimes use other resources to support people when they are working on a pose.   Do not buy these items until you know what would be helpful for you. We have some which you can use in class until you are sure.

Do I need to be flexible?

No, yoga is about you working from where you are.  Most people can practice yoga regardless of age, gender, flexibility or fitness. Modifications are available for every yoga pose and students are encouraged to work safely within their limits.

I have never done yoga before.  How will I know what to do in class?

We have people working at all levels in our classes.  We enjoy helping people get started and as there are generally two of us, you will get lots of help.

I have some health issues.  Can I still come to yoga?

It is always a good idea to check with your doctor first.  It would also it would be helpful to email us in advance so that we can advise you.

I come to yoga regularly, but I twisted my knee a week ago.  Should I come to class?

You should talk to your doctor or other medical adviser in case of injury and email us ahead of the class. Always let us know at the start of a class if you have a health issue or injury so that we can help you modify your postures and practise safely.
