Frequently Asked questions

 

Where can I find the studio at St Marys? 

Enter through the main gate in to the car park, head to the far right of the building and enter through the side entrance where a member of the SLS team will greet you.

 

Is this class for me? 

The style of Yoga I teach is a mixture of Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga. Vinyasa flow requires a low medium level of health and fitness due to its slightly faster pace. For the majority, yes it will be for you and it will become easier with time and practice. If you are unsure check with your GP first or contact me for individual advice.

 

What do I need to bring?

If you have an exercise / yoga mat, bring it along (mats can be purchased locally for under £10, contact me for details). I do bring spare mats but it depends how many people need them as to their availability.
Most people bring a bottle of water too.

 

What do I wear to class?

Leggings, jogging bottoms, shorts, loose stretchy pants and a T-shirt or vest top that won’t fall over your head in down dog. (See picture below)
Traditionally Yoga is practised in bare feet. You can purchase yoga socks but this is your preference.

Will I be the only man / woman there?

No, both my classes have a good mix of both men and woman, if you were the only man or only woman it would be rare and a one off.

 

Do I need to book ? (Important info)

My classes do not currently have a booking system. Places are available on a first come first served basis. Please arrive 5 minutes early to get a spot and set up ready for a prompt start.

 

I am pregnant, can I join your class ?

As a qualified post and pre-natal Yoga teacher, I would like to make this call per individual depending on your health, fitness and stage of your pregnancy. Please contact me for advise.
