Helpful Tips

Here are a few ways to optimise your yoga experience:

  • Don’t eat a meal before class. Make do with a snack until afterwards.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water
  • Bring a yoga mat and any props you might need
  • Please leave mobile phones in the cubby holes provided and remember to turn them off!
  • Try and turn up a few minutes early. This will give you time to settle on your mat and bring yourself into the present moment to get the very most from your class.
  • If you have to leave early, let your teacher know before class starts. If possible, take a couple of minutes to sit quietly or take a short relaxation before you leave.
  • Listen to your body. Yoga is not a competition, with yourself or anyone else. Be gentle and patient with yourself and mindful of any sensations that arise.

What class is right for me?

  • If you’re brand new to yoga, nursing an injury or returning to yoga after a break, consider our six-week gentle yoga course. This really is accessible to everyone. You’ll learn all the basics and get a well-rounded introduction to yoga so you feel confident to try our other classes.
  • If you’ve done a bit of yoga, look to the Yoga for All sessions. These cater to every level and will get your body moving while teaching you breathwork and relaxation techniques. These are open classes designed to suit all abilities, so beginners are also welcome – it’s not a case of being ultra-flexible or fit to take these classes, but more about knowing how to work to your body’s limits.
