What if I’m not very flexible?
Be present and work with the body you have today. It does not matter how far or deep you can go in a posture, you will benefit simply from trying your best, not pushing too hard and embracing the new feelings in your body.
Yoga is one of the best ways to help you improve your flexibility and it is something that evolves with your yoga practice. Each individual will progress at their own rate, but commitment towards a regular practice will certainly enhance anyone’s flexibility.
“Yoga is not about touching your toes, it is what you learn on the way down.”
Should I eat or drink before I come to class?
It is recommended to refrain from eating for 2 hours before a class, but it’s a good idea to drink plenty of water right up until the start. For the early morning Sunrise classes, you might wish to have some fruit or a non-dairy smoothie if you’d prefer not to exercise on an empty stomach.
What do I wear?
It’s important to be comfortable and have freedom of movement for all yoga classes. Shorts or leggings with comfortable sports tops is what most people like to wear.
What do I bring?
Please bring your own Mat and if you practice with a strap or block, feel free to take those with you.
Is it possible to lose weight practicing Yoga?
As part of a commitment to a mindful, healthy lifestyle, all types of yoga will help improve flexibility, strength and body composition.
I’m new to yoga. What’s the etiquette?
It’s pretty laid back, the main thing is to arrive on time, at least 10 minutes prior to class. Classes start on time and there will be no admission for late comers. Secondly, feel free to take a break at any time during class by sitting or lying quietly on your mat.
“A person who never made a mistake, never tried anything new” – Albert Einstein
What if I have an injury or condition that might affect my ability to participate?
While yoga has been proven to benefit conditions ranging from sports injuries to chronic illnesses, please do let your teacher know if you have a condition you might need to work around. Try to tune in to your body and listen to how you feel. This will help you become aware of what your body is telling you. Yoga rewards dedication and hard work, but it is equally important to rest and recover when you need to.
