Yoga FAQs

I’m not very flexible- is yoga for me?

Yes, definitely! It doesn’t matter how flexible you are, you will still benefit from yoga and over time your flexibility (amongst other things) will improve. Yoga is non-competitive so you’ll always be encouraged to practice within your own capabilities.

Will I need to bring my own mat or any equipment?

No, we will provide all equipment. If you practice yoga regularly, however, you will probably want to bring your own mat.

What should I wear?

Loose comfortably clothing that doesn’t restrict your movement

Can I wear socks?

Traditionally, yoga is practiced in bare feet as this is the safest and most effective way to practice. If you need to wear socks, then for saftey we would recommened using specialist socks designed for this type of activity (e.g. ToeSox- five toe yoga socks).

Can I eat before a class?

Allow about 4 hours digestion time after a heavy meal, and about 2 hours after a light meal, before class.

I have an injury or medical problem, can I still do yoga?

This wouldn't necessarily rule you out of being able to take part in a class, but we would always recommend that you get advice from your GP about whether yoga would be suitable for you, and advise the teacher of any conditions.
