Should you be unsure what class you would like to attend, you can puchase the $25 Intro Offer Pass which will allow you to participate in 3 (three) classes of your choice within 7 consecutive days (1 week). Bring your mat and towel if you like. We have available blocks, straps, bolsters and blankets to use during classes. They are also available for purchase. Please see the list of our eco friendly props. Our teachers can advise you before you make a purchase of a mat or another prop. A yoga mat is a very personal feel and fit and it is important that you try before you buy.
We ask that you as a new student complete a registration form detailing any relevant medical conditions and emergency contact information. The registration form is available at the studio or can be filled out online before you attend Click here for the Online Registration Form. Please stay assured that all your details and information will be kept by teachers completely confidential.
what to wear
Wear light, soft, comfortable clothes. Natural fibers such as cotton allow the skin to breathe. Decency permitting you should wear as little as the temperature and your physique allow. We also suggest a pair of socks during warm up and cool down and a shawl for the cooler months.
when to practice
Regular practice is key to progress. Aim to practice 3-4 times a week then gradually increase. Yoga is traditionally practiced six days a week with one day off. We recommend you slowly build up your practice to doing something daily, even if it is only 10 or 15 minutes. Please speak with our practitioners who can offer guidance on how to incorporate your yoga practice into your daily life.
Yoga is a process of self-exploration. However, it can be helpful to begin with someone else. You might like to team up with a friend or even a group of people. This has several advantages. When you work with others you are far more likely to stick to your target rather than being distracted by the domestic chores or a sudden feeling of tiredness. Team up with someone who takes the practice seriously; save the socialising for after yoga sessions.
preparation for class
- You can start anytime. No need to book for casual drop-in. If you have never tried yoga before, we suggest that you should take the Intro Course (Yoga for Beginners). Please book with Kate directly.
- Kindly arrive 5 to 15 minutes early to enable adequate time to register for class, set up your yoga mat and relax prior to the start of class. Main door will be closed 5 minutes after the start of class.
- Arrive dressed for class. Wear light, comfortable exercise wear. We do have a small change area should you be catching a class before or after work. We encourage you to be prepared and change into your yoga clothes before you arrive at the studio.
- We recommend that yoga should be practiced on an empty stomach. If you have food in your stomach many of the postures, especially inversions, forward bends, and strong twists may become uncomfortable. Generally it is preferred you do not eat any heavy food at least two hours before practicing yoga. If you need to have something (for example you experience low blood pressure or are hypo-glycemic), please eat something easy to digest like a handful of nuts, a piece of fruit, smoothie or broth-type soup.
- Drink water, before and after your practice, try not to drink during the classe as this may interrupt your flow and cool your internal heat, which is created to burn of toxins. However, some of the postures can be quite taxing or tiring and drinking a bit of water may actually allow you to take a break if you need to. Listen to your body needs.
- So bring your own water bottle and if you forget, you are welcome to have a drink at the cafe downstairs during their trading hours.
- Remove your shoes at the cloak room. Yoga should be practiced barefoot as this enhances awareness of feet and a sense of grounding.
- Please remove your watch, glasses and any jewellery that might get in the way. Teachers and students do move about the room during the yoga class. We do not wish to accidentally walk on precious jewellery or glasses. Pigeon holes have been provided for the storage of your belongings in the cloak room.
- As a courtesy to fellow students please do not wear perfume, colognes and strong smelling scents in the yoga room. Fellow students may have allergies and be chemically sensitive.
- Please turn off your mobile phone and leave it outside the yoga room.
- Advise your teacher of any injuries, medical conditions or pregnancy. Students are encouraged to remain in the yoga room for the duration of the class to avoid disruption to fellow students. However, should you feel you need to leave, you will not be restricted from doing so.
