Will I be the only one that doesn’t know what to do?
No, we have beginners attending our all levels and level 1classes all the time. It is the teacher’s job to help you find your way with the practice so don’t worry! It is important to remember there is no pressure in a yoga class, you do what you can and for a while you may just be getting a feel for it.
What if I have a health condition or injury?
Our teachers will be able to modify and adapt the practice for the vast majority of things. However, it is important you let us know of anything that may be going on and if anything changes over the time you are practicing with us.
How will I know what style of yoga is for me?
If you are someone who likes strong physical activity you may like to start with one of our beginners flows or astanga classes. If you prefer more gentle activity try one of our hatha classes.
Do I always have to pre book classes?
You can just turn up for most classes, however level 2, mysore and power classes tend to be busy so should be booked. If you know for sure you are coming let us know and book in, but if anything changes be sure to cancel your booking.
