If this is your first time attending a yoga class I would suggest you make use of one of the spare mats in my studio. However if you love doing yoga then I suggest you invest in a mat of your own. Mats vary in costs, if you are new to yoga I would recommend an inexpensive mat (at least 6mm in thickness) and as your practice progresses and your yoga experience deepens, you can invest in a more luxurious mat.
If you are new to yoga you may want to try once a week for the first month and then step it up to two classes a week. Over time you will find yourself doing some of the poses and sequences at home on your own as a way to increase and deepen your practice.
Please dress as comfortable as possible. Tracksuit pants or thick leggings are great. I would also suggest wearing loose tops. You may also find it less restricting without jewelry or watches. I also provide warm blankets for use during the relaxation or meditation section of a class.
Every yoga class begins with a brief relaxation followed by focused stretching exercises before embarking on the specific selection of classic hatha asanas (poses), Yin & Restorative Yoga and Reiki Treatment. All classes will include a pranayama (yogic breathing exercise) and conclude with a guided relaxation or meditation. Classes move at slower pace than you may have experienced in other styles of yoga as we focus on the pace of your breathing to gently transition between poses. At the studio, we also offer sessions that make use of Rife Technology, a new addition to help sweep through all pathogenic frequencies to help kill a wide spectrum of viruses, bacteria, and smaller fungi.
Yes! Hatha style yoga is a very appropriate form of prenatal yoga (post 13 weeks or end of 1st trimester) as most classes are slower and more gentle than a typical “Vinyasa” or “Bikram” style class. It is always recommended to seek the advice of your medical practitioner before embarking on any new form of exercise. We consider all our students and will always make sure that it is safe for you to continue the class, in a situation where our other style yoga practices like Yin & Restorative Yoga and our Reaiki Treatment sessions put to much strain on your body.
There is no competition in yoga and you are only ever expected to do what feels right for you. If we do a pose that you feel you are not ready to do, then you are welcome to sit and watch. Most of my classes move at a slower pace which not only invites self reflection but the opportunity to deepen your yoga practice. I may from time to time introduce the Sanskrit name for a pose but for the most part I give all pose names and instructions in English so everyone can follow along. We consider all types of students and the intensity that they can do yoga, all our other yoga styles like Yin & Restorative Yoga, and Reiki Treatment session are all perofmred at a level where all our students are considered and can easily follow.
No, yoga is the use of poses and breathing to create health and mindfulness. Yoga embraces inherent unity and all forms of spirituality. Whilst it may have its roots in ancient India, yoga is practiced and enjoyed throughout the world by millions of people regardless of their religious beliefs or spiritual framework. I teach students from a variety of religious backgrounds and I am respectful to their personal spiritual journey.
