I’m not very flexible. Can I still do yoga?
Many people feel that they ‘can’t do yoga’, as they are ‘not flexible enough’ or they ‘can’t touch their toes’. We work with you, no matter what your level of experience and flexibility. Postures are adjusted to suit the class, while still providing strength and challenges for the more experienced practitioner.
I have limited mobility. Can I still practice yoga?
We work with people of all levels of mobility, flexibility and health issues. If you can move, you can do yoga. If your mobility is seriously affected however, a private session may be more ideal in achieving maximum benefits for you. Please contact us if you are unsure if attending a class is suitable for you.
Do I need my own mat?
Please bring your own mat if you have one, however some mats will be provided. You will also need a firm cushion and a blanket.
What should I wear to class?
Wear comfortable loose/stretch clothing that allows for easy movement. Your body temperature is higher during pregnancy so it is a good idea to wear layers that you can remove or add as necessary. It is also advisable to bring something warm to wear during the relaxation/after the class i.e. socks, jersey, etc.
Can I eat before class?
Ideally, it is best not to eat a large meal less than two hours before a yoga class, however it is important to eat regularly while you are pregnant so a light snack is fine 30 minutes / one hour before class.
What time should I arrive at class?
For your first class please arrive 10 minutes early so that your teacher can introduce herself, you can fill out the registration form, show you our facilities and discuss any queries you may have. After the first class try to aim for at least 5 minutes before class.
