About the classes
Lessons are 60 minutes long and are run in courses of six weeks. There is space for up to twelve students in each class.
If you pay for a whole course, the classes are discounted and you are guaranteed a space in each lesson. If you can’t commit to a course then you can drop in but this is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and priority is given to those who have booked a course.
You will be asked to fill out a simple health questionnaire before starting a course of lessons. This is to ensure that we are aware of any issues that you have so that they can be taken into account in the class. This form can either be downloaded from the website or sent to you by email.
What to wear
Wear simple, comfortable clothes that are not too baggy. You are likely to get hot during the class but will cool down quickly during relaxation so please wear layers. A typical outfit might be a pair of leggings or yoga trousers with a t-shirt and sweatshirt.
Remember that yoga is performed barefoot so if you want to wear socks please buy a pair of special yoga socks that have a non-slip sole.
What and when to eat
As with any physical activity it is not recommended that you eat a big meal for at least two hours before practising. A light snack will be fine but you should try not to eat anything in the hour before your class. You will be doing a lot of bending, stretching and twisting which is not good on a full stomach. You can drink water any time up to and during the class.
What to bring
Please bring your own yoga equipment if you have it, otherwise mats and props will be provided. However you will need to bring a blanket for the relaxation session and you may like to bring a bottle of water.
What to expect in the class
The classes are friendly and informal, and the atmosphere is non-competitive and relaxed. Each lesson starts by working on the breath to settle the mind and body. This is then followed by a series of postures that make up the main part of the class, and concludes with a short relaxation.
Please ensure your phone is off or on silent before you come to the class.
