The yoga classes are a friendly, non-competitive weekly activity. The focus of the classes is to improve your own physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
Yoga is suitable for all ages and abilities and postures and activities can be adapted to meet the needs of the individual. Techniques in class can all be practised at home. My current classes are not suitable for anyone who is pregnant, but I am happy to recommend excellent local pregnancy yoga teachers if required.
The following information covers common questions often asked by students new to my classes
Preparing for a class
- Try not to eat a big meal in the 2 hours before a class. Do not have a big drink in the hour before a class.
- It is sensible to empty your bladder before you practice.
What should I wear?
- You should wear comfortable clothing that you can move easily in (elasticated waist bands are more comfortable than zips).
- For your own safety we will practice postures in bare feet.
What do I need to bring with me?
- You need a non-slip rubber mat for the class. If you have one already please bring it, as it is nicer to use your own – but mats can be borrowed during the class.
- Socks and a top to keep you warm during relaxation.
- A blanket would also make you more comfortable during relaxation.
