I'm a beginner, where should I start?

There's not one type of beginner. Some people that have experienced Pilates or have a background in dance or martial arts, find they adapt to Yoga quite quickly. For others, it takes time to learn and build their confidence doing Yoga. Either way, it doesn't matter, everyone works at their own pace. If you feel that you need more support and guidance, I recommend you register onto the next Beginners event or have at least one Personal Yoga Lesson so that you're familiar with the postures and what to expect in a group class.
If you are still unsure or have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message via the contact page.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothing, anything from; a big t-shirt and jogging bottoms, gym gear or your snazziest of leggings. It's not a fashion show, so as long as you're comfortable and you can move around in it, go for it.
Most people practice Yoga barefooted. However, should you wish to wear socks or toesox, you are welcome to do so. We do not allow footwear on our mats.

What is the difference between a beginners course to a group class?

My Beginners events involve learning Yoga from scratch in an environment where everyone takes their time learning the postures, the principles of Yoga, body, breathing + mind awareness and can also ask questions. It's considered to be a great stepping stone into Group classes. 
 
Group classes are at an open level involving: Mobility work, Sequences/Flows and balancing postures. Variations and modifications are given throughout class making the practice accessible. During group classes we focus on mental + physical wellbeing and building strength + flexibility - leaving you feeling energised and inspired, inside and out.

Should I eat before doing Yoga?

Yoga can be quite uncomfortable to practice on a full stomach. Having said that, you don't want to be hungry, hangry or feeling light headed during class. If you need to eat closer to the class time, chose something light that you know agrees with your body. E.g. Piece of fruit or a bar.

Can I attend if I am pregnant?

Though Yoga is recommended during pregnancy by midwives and doctors, it is advised that you attend Pregnancy Yoga classes that are suited to your health needs and trimester. Unfortunately, this isn't something that I currently offer but hopefully will be able to in future.
