Frequently Asked Questions
Got a Question?
We've probably covered it, but if not, feel free to contact us.
I'm not flexible, can I do yoga?
Absolutely! It's a common misconception that you have to be flexible to practice yoga. It's true that you can gain more flexibility during practice, but there is so much more to yoga than just flexibility.
All classes offer modifications for where your body is comfortable, why not start with our Foundations class to find your level?
I'm not fit, can I do yoga?
There is no assumed level of fitness in our classes, many students new to yoga are learning to move their body for the first time, why not try our Foundations class to get you started?
Do I need a mat?
I provide mats & props for your classes unless something has been specified to bring with you. This will always been communicated to you prior to any booking via email. If you have a mat at home you are more than welcome to bring your own mat or use one of mine.
What should I Wear?
Most students wear either baggy, loose fitting bottoms & t-shirts or stretchy sports leggings & fitness tops. It's good to aim for clothing that will keep you cool during your practice & have something warmer to layer up for relaxation as the body cools down quickly during this time.
Can I eat before class?
This depends on your personal preferences. A small snack is usually okay an hour before but to avoid being uncomfortable try to stay away from a full meal 2 hours beforehand. It's best to stay hydrated before class.
How do I pay for classes?
All our classes are booked online & paid for at the time of booking. You can manage your bookings in your member area.
Can I book a block of classes?
Some classes available will be a course of classes, in which case you will only need to book the course once, your booking will remain for the duration of the course. Our regular weekly classes can be booked up to a month in advance. You can also purchase a 10 class pass for in person classes, please see our Plans & Pricing to learn more.
Can I drop into classes?
As our classes are all managed online, we recommend booking before coming to class, this will ensure there are spaces available. If there is space available, you will be able to book a space up to the class start time.
What if I am late for class?
If you are late for class, we recommend letting us know as soon as you can. Unfortunately, we are unable to allow participants to join the class once the class has begun and the studio doors have been locked. This is to ensure the safety of the space being held for other students is held in place.
Can I leave a class?
You are welcome to leave a class at any time if you need to. We encourage you to listen to what you need and if the class is not serving you for any reason & you feel safe enough to do so you can leave the class. The studio door is locked from the inside at the start of the class but is always accessible to open. We ask that should you need to leave that you are mindful of others students. We may check in with you afterwards to ensure you are okay.
Is it not just stretching?
Can I get a refund if I can't make a class?
We can offer a refund if classes are cancelled in good time, If cancellations are made within 24 hours of the class start time, we will only be able to refund you your class if the space has been filled. We are unable to issue a refund if you do not show up or are late to the class. Please refer to our refund policy for more information.
What type of yoga do you teach?
I mainly teach Vinyasa, Yin & Restorative Yoga. Vinyasa yoga simply means to place in a special way & you can expect smooth transitions from one posture to the next using the breath to move the body. Used in different ways, Vinyasa Yoga can create a sense of calm in the mind or energise us for the day ahead. Using the breath in unison with movement allows us to release tension or blockages within our bodies & encourage balance in our nervous system.
Yin Yoga is a calming practice aimed at working into the deep tissues of the body using longer-held postures. The practice is nourishing for the nervous system & allows us to find a state of peace.
Yoga is so much more than stretching, on the mat you will learn how to calm the mind, regulate your bodies normal every day functions & experience self exploration. Of course, if you are looking for stretches to complement other sports, yoga is a fantastic way to increase performance, strength & stability.
