*feel free to get in touch with any of your own!
What do I need to bring?
Yoga mats available however feel free to bring your own along. You can also buy yoga mats at the studio for £20. You can also bring water and something warm (blanket, jumper socks) for relaxation.
What do I wear?
Barefoot and clothes that allow for movement e.g. tshirts, leggings. Layering can make sure you're not too hot or cold.
I can't commit to weekly classes - can I drop in?
If you have some experience of yoga you can attend a drop in class for £7 if there are spaces on that class. Check out the Flexi pass rates for more flexible booking options. As the class is taught as a course it is recommended that you attend the full block to get the most from your class.
Is Yoga suitable for everyone?
Yes - men and women of all ages and abilities benefit every day from yoga. It is always advisable to check with your GP if you're unsure or have any medical issues and you should also bring these up with your teacher. Classes can be modified to suit the individual so please let me know when you're booking if you're pregnant, or have a medical condition / back problems or anything that you think might affect your class.
You don't need to be young, flexible, skinny to do you yoga - yoga is for everyone!
Is Yoga like Pilates?
There are some similarities but they are not the same. Joseph Pilates was very interested in yoga and you can see the influence in many of the moves. Both have an emphasis on focusing the mind and using the breath. Yoga has a lot more variety in the types of postures and much more standing poses - plus there is more emphasis on flexibility and relaxation.
