Do I need to be an experienced Yogi to attend workshops and /or courses?
These special classes and workshops are usually an in depth study of a particular aspect of Yoga practice and as such, are geared more towards more experienced students who have a regular practice and are looking to develop that further. If you have not practised with me before please get in touch prior to booking. If you have not done Yoga before please contact me and we can discuss the most suitable class or another teacher/class
Relax and Renew, Yoga Nidra classes, Sleep recovery and meditation is open to everyone, unless otherwise stated
What to tell us
If you are booking a course you are required to fill out health/medical information when booking. If your class or workshop does not require a booking form please inform us if you suffer from very high blood pressure, heart disease, retinal problems, epilepsy, have a joint replacement or recently undergone any major surgery, it is always wise to consult your doctor prior to beginning a Yoga programme. If you are menstruating heavily it is recommended that you avoid inverted postures, please refer to your teacher.
What to bring- Yoga equipment and alternatives
A Yoga mat is a good starting point. We have compiled a list of alternatives to regular Yoga props, if you don’t have any, here.
For Relax and Renew, Yoga Nidra and Sleep Recovery it is a good idea to have a bolster or bolster alternative, a blanket or another suitable covering, support for your head.
For meditation please have something to sit on to remain comfortable and relaxed
For the Sleep course we recommend a Yoga belt, Yoga brick and access to a wall. We will email you any other suggestions .
When booking a course- do I need to attend all weeks on the course?
Ideally, yes but we often record parts for example our Learn to meditate, students were given voice recordings of each meditation practice to keep. Sometimes we record all of the course and give you private access to the recording for up to 7 days
Written materials are also sometimes part of courses, so if you miss a session you can catch up
Avoid a heavy meal prior to Yoga practice and do not eat anything for at least one to two hours prior to practice. If this is not practical (especially in the case of pregnant women) please try and eat only something light- only a small amount of food that is easily digestible
When to arrive?
Arrive in good time for your class, but no more than 10 minutes before the start. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for your class, we may be unable to let you in as the waiting room function may be on
Listen to your own body-don’t force yourself into any of the postures or force your breath-relax and enjoy.
If you find that you cannot attend a class that you have booked, it is helpful if we know in advance that you are not coming so please let us know.
