Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be fit or flexible to do yoga?
I have a medical condition - does this mean that I cannot take part in a class?

I will ask you to complete a medical questionnaire , and this information will be held in confidence in accordance with Data Protection legislation.

Many sportsmen now include yoga as part of their training programme.
When is the best time to start yoga?

What do I need to wear?
It is important to be comfortable so that you can relax and move into each posture, and also to have the space to breathe deeply and comfortably.
No special clothing is needed , a t shirt and some comfortable trousers will be fine.
Please wear an extra layer or fleece and if you have a cosy blanket bring this along for our relaxation practice at the end of class.
Do I need any special equipment?
You can practice yoga anywhere without any equipment.
However a yoga mat is needed to keep your feet stable in standing postures. Yoga mats are provided at all classes, but please feel free to bring your own mat along to class.
I'm feeling a bit shy about coming along on my own?
