About Yoga

Here are some important things I wish someone had told me before my first yoga class:


  • Firstly and most importantly:  Don’t be too hard on yourself. You don't have to be able to touch your toes to do yoga. This is, in fact, the very reason we would love you to do yoga. You are here to work on your flexibility – So don’t worry, your toes will get closer in time.

  • What should I wear? You can wear whatever you feel comfortable in – but we do recommend layers and something with a little breathing room so you are comfortable when you are moving around on your mat. Also, it can be easier to wear jandals or shoes that slip on easily as we have bare feet while practicing.

  • Do I need to bring anything to class? We have provided all the equipment needed for class so all you need to bring is yourself, a water bottle and maybe a towel if you get particularly sweaty. 

  • Arriving on time – as best you can please arrive 10-15 minutes before class, this will give you time to sign in, get set up and have some quiet time before we start the class. If you are late don’t stress just enter the class and find your place as quietly as possible.

  • Your Teacher is here for you – If you need any assistance just ask, or come an have a quiet word before or after class. Don't forget your teacher needs to know about any injuries or medical conditions you have so they can adjust or modify asana (poses) for you appropriately. It may be necessary to get cleared to practice yoga by a medical professional first. If you are unsure, reach out, we're here to support you.

  • Lastly: Just go with the flow (pun intended). During some classes, you will feel fantastic and others you will feel frustrated that you can’t do what you’ve been doing before. No day is the same, just accept what it is and keep showing up for yourself.
