Frequently Asked Questions
On this page, I’ve endeavoured to answer any of the most common questions that newcomers to my classes and sessions tend to ask.
If you have a question and the answer cannot be found on this page, or if you simply need a little more clarification on some of the questions that are posed here, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
I'm new to Yoga. Will I be able to keep up?
My classes cater for all abilities, although on Monday evenings I offer a complete beginner’s class if you’re feeling a little apprehensive about dipping your toes into the world of yoga.
I also offer one-on-one and one-on-two sessions either at my home or yours, if you’d prefer to explore yoga in a more private setting.
I'm not especially flexible... Could this be a problem?
Yoga will help you to become more flexible, the more you practice it – even if you’re not all that flexible right now.
Your newfound flexibility will be balanced by strength, agility, coordination, and enhanced cardiovascular health, as well as a sense of physical confidence and overall well-being.
Can I just show up on the day, or will I need to book in advance?
All of my classes are drop-in, so there’s no need to book, Just turn up on the day, and get stuck in!
Do you provide equipment, or will I need to bring my own?
All equipment is provided and included in the cost of your class. However, if you would prefer to bring your own equipment, you’re more than welcome to do so.
I would however advise that you bring a fresh bottle of water and a towel with you. Yoga can be thirsty (and sweaty) work!
What should I wear?
A pair of yoga leggings or shorts, and top or a t-shirt that breathes, but isn’t too baggy.
No special footwear is required, because you will be barefoot during the class.
Should I avoid eating before a yoga class?
In a yoga class, we’ll be twisting from side to side, turning upside down, and bending forwards and backwards. If you haven’t fully digested your last meal, it’s likely to make itself known to you in ways that are less than comfortable.
If you have a quick-acting digestive system, and you’re concerned that you might feel hungry or weak during the class, a light snack such as a yogurt or a small granola bar, about 30 minutes to an hour before class, should see you through the session.
Do I pay on the day, or can I pay for a block of classes?
You can either pay per class each time you attend, or you can pay for a block of six classes (valid for eight weeks), and receive a discount for doing so.
For drop-in sessions, I take cash payments on the day. If you would like to purchase a pass for a block of six classes, you can either pay at your first class, or via bank transfer.
Please contact me directly for further details, if you would like to purchase a pass via bank transfer.
Is there anything else I need to remember, or bring with me?
An open mind and a sense of curiosity is all that’s really required to enjoy a yoga session!
