You’ve got questions. Here are the answers.
Yoga is a wonderful way of working holistically with your body, mind and breath. It is non-competitive and each person works at their own pace. With regular practice, you will notice increased flexibility, strength, improved posture and an overall sense of well-being. You may also feel calmer and better able to cope with stress.
What do I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes you can move in easily. Layers are helpful to adjust for changes in temperature as you warm up and cool down. Yoga is practised in bare feet or you can buy special ‘yoga socks’ with grippy soles.
What do I need to bring?
Bring your yoga mat. Maybe a bottle of water. A blanket and even a small cushion are also good for the relaxation part of the class.
Eventually you might decide to invest in a yoga block and belt. These yoga props are inexpensive and designed to make your body more comfortable - but they aren't essential items.
Do I need to be flexible/young/fit/female?
No. Yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, levels of fitness, range of movement, etc. If you do have an existing health condition or an injury, please let me know in advance of the class so I can take care of you. Everyone attending completes a confidential Yoga Class Health Form.
