Yoga is a light, which once lit will never dim. The better your practice the brighter the flame.
— B.K.S Iyengar

New to Yoga?

  • Everyone can benefit from yoga - whatever your level of fitness or flexibility - whatever your body shape or life stage.
  • Yoga will improve your strength and flexibility while also allowing you to relax and unwind.
  • People often think they need to be flexible to do yoga -the opposite is true.  People do yoga to gain flexibility.
  • It really doesn't matter what you can and can't do. Yoga is not about forcing the fullest expression of a pose, but rather working gently with your breath and your own body's capabilities.
  • Start with a beginners class which will show you the basics and will explain everything you need to know.
  • There shouldn't be any competition in yoga - with yourself or with anyone else.
  • Listen to your body. You will workout and challenge yourself, but it should never hurt. Don't force your body to do something it is not ready to do.
  • If you need rest - take rest. Join in again when you are ready.
  • Towards the end of the class you get to lie down and enjoy deep relaxation called Savasana..bliss :)


Useful tips before your first class:

  • Wear comfortable clothing.  Avoid wearing anything bulky as it will restrict movement.
  • Drink plenty of water before and after class. 
  • It is advisable not to practice on a full stomach.  Eat a light meal a few hours before your class.
  • Bring your own yoga mat. You are welcome to use our spares but it is more hygienic to use your own. 
  • All other props are provided. (Belts, blocks, bolsters, blankets).
  • Arrive about 5 mins early (10 mins for your first class) so you can register, acquire necessary props and settle in.
  • Leave phones at home, but if you have to bring it with you ensure it is powered off.
  • Be mindful of other yoga students and respectful of the yoga space.
  • Make sure you inform your teacher of any pre-existing medical conditions or injuries so that poses can be adapted to suit.  
  • Challenge yourself, have fun and enjoy the process!
