• NEW STUDENTS

FIRST TIME TO YOGA?

Start with 10 days unlimited yoga for $29

A beginners class is the perfect yoga class for new students: a slower class – but still strong – where you’ll learn alignment techniques and get useful tips on how to practice and what to expect in the future. If you can’t get to a beginners class don’t worry, you can try, Hot Yoga, Yin or even an Open Class. Teachers will offer modifications in all our classes.

Tips for beginners

  • BYO, mat, towel and water or rent buy at reception.
  • stay for the entire class.
  • Learn by watching and listening to the teacher and to your body.
  • If you need to rest, it’s okay. Listen to your body and take a rest
  • Be patient. It usually takes about ten classes before you get into the flow of the class.

FIND A TEACHER WHO SPEAKS YOUR LANGUAGE

For your first week or two visit a variety of classes with different teachers. Give yourself a chance to see what’s out there, and understand that each teacher brings a unique voice and perspective to how they convey and motivate you! After you find your “favorite,” you can move into the next step.

WE WELCOME QUESTIONS

If you think you’re doing something wrong and are not sure, ask your teacher. Don’t spend months doubting yourself, but find out early the proper ways to do things. This will proactively help prevent injuries from occurring in the future and it will also help build community, if you take the time to get to know your fellow students and learn from their experiences, too

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

  • An open mind, good attitude and a smile!
  • A towel.
  • Water. $2.50 at studio
  • A mat if you have one or hire a mat $2 at studio.
  • Plastic bag for wet clothes if you want to shower at studio

WHAT DO I WEAR?

  • Comfortable clothing that you can move and sweat in.
  • Fitted, active gym gear, i.e. tights or shorts and a singlet.
  • We practice in bare feet so please leave shoes at the studio entrance.

YOGA ROOM ETIQUETTE

  • Only bring yourself, your mat, your towel and your water into the room.
  • Position your mat in the middle of the room so there are students all around to help guide you if you get lost.
  • Grab a block, blanket and a strap: you can borrow these for free at the studio
  • Respect your body: work within your limits and rest whenever you need.

WHAT ARE THE FACILITIES?

  • Mats  available for hire.$2.00
  • Bottled water available to purchase. $2.50
  • Shower and toilet facilities in all studios.
  • Lockers for secure storage of small personal belongings. No charge

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PRACTISE?

You can practice as often as you like, just remember to listen to your body. Some committed students practice 5-6 times per week, however the intensity will vary to suit the needs of their body on the day.  Slowing down and listening to your body’s intuition is part of the yoga journey. If you’re cross-training with other sports then 2-3 times a week would likely be of great benefit.

CAN I DO YOGA WHEN I’M PREGNANT?

Heated yoga is not recommended for pregnancy, so we advise you not to attend those classes. As an alternative try our Basic or Open classes.

For the most part, if a student had a regular asana practice pre-pregnancy, you can continue to practice in the way you are accustomed to as long as you feels comfortable doing so.

While there are certainly some general guidelines to adhere to, modifying a practice for pregnancy isn’t about enforcing a rigid list of do’s and don’ts.
