FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR AND BRING TO CLASS?
Please bring a yoga mat and wear comfortable clothes which allow you to bend and stretch without restriction, enough layers to keep warm, and maybe a blanket for relaxation at the end. Yoga is best practiced with socks off, so we don’t slip, but if this is an issue for you, please wear socks with grips. For sound relaxation please bring a yoga mat, pillow and blanket; even a sleeping bag or hot water bottle if you are susceptible to cold.
DO YOU PROVIDE MATS AND BLOCKS?
For hygiene purposes it’s always best to have your own mat. If you’re new I have some you can borrow in the meantime, but I only have a few. I do have blocks and straps if they are needed.
ARE CLASSES SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS?
All my classes are suitable for beginners; please don’t feel you have to be super fit and bendy to do yoga; yoga is for everyone, and for those who can’t, or prefer not to practice on a mat, you can practice in a chair.
ARE CLASSES SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN?
Not for young children, but fine for older children when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
ARE CLASSES SUITABLE DURING PREGNANCY?
It is always best to find a suitable pregnancy yoga teacher, however, from your second trimester onwards my yoga classes and sound relaxation sessions should be fine. Please make contact first so that I can adapt each movement and posture for you. I ask participants to fill in a registration form listing all conditions, before class.
ARE CLASSES SUITABLE DURING INJURY OR WITH A MEDICAL CONDITION?
Please contact your GP for the all-clear if you have any serious injuries or medical conditions. Please arrive early enough to discuss all injuries and conditions with me before you start the class, or if you prefer you can email or WhatsApp me beforehand. All movements and postures can be adapted and I will always ask you to listen to your body throughout class.
