Q: I’M A COMPLETE BEGINNER AND TOTALLY INFLEXIBLE. ARE YOUR CLASSES SUITABLE FOR ME?
A: Yes. Our Gentle Hatha, Hatha, Pregnancy, Postnatal, and Restorative classes are suitable for all levels of experience, including beginners. You don’t need to be flexible, fit or strong to start. That comes as a consequence of practicing yoga; it’s not a prerequisite. We also run regular Yoga for Beginners courses which are ideal if you'd like to learn or revisit the fundamentals of yoga at a steady pace.
Q: I HAVE AN INJURY OR A MEDICAL CONDITION. IS YOGA SUITABLE FOR ME?
A: If you have an injury or medical condition which may affect your yoga practice, please contact us if you are unsure as to whether the class is suitable for you.
Q: DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
A: We provide all the mats and props for our classes but you are also welcome to bring your own. You might like to bring a bottle of water and it’s also nice to bring a blanket or something warm to pop on for the savasana (relaxation) at the end, so you’re nice and snug.
Q: WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
A: It’s best to wear comfortable clothing such as leggings or shorts and a t-shirt or vest. You don’t need footwear or socks as yoga is done with bare feet.
Q: SHOULD I EAT ANYTHING BEFORE CLASS?
A: It’s best not to eat a heavy meal within two hours before the class. A light snack is fine.
Q: IS THERE PARKING AT THE VENUE?
A: All of the venues that we use have free parking next to the building. The maps on our group classes page are compatible with Google maps on most smartphones so you can easily navigate to the venue.
Q: DO I NEED TO BOOK IN ADVANCE FOR A CLASS?
A: Everyone has to book for each class, whether you have paid for a class pass or you are dropping in. You can book here. If you don't have time to book your class before you arrive (and if there is space) then you can book yourself in on your phone upon arrival (let us know if you need any help). Please understand that our classes are popular and therefore if you haven't booked in advance we cannot guarantee that there will be space.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO CANCEL A CLASS?
A: For both drop ins and class passes, you can cancel and reschedule a class up to 4 hours before it starts. This 4 hour period is there to give those on waiting lists the opportunity to take your place if you are not going to attend. If you cancel a class within 4 hours of the class start time, it cannot be transferred to another date and you will lose the class. If you cancel a class, the new date has to be within 4 weeks of the original booking. Please note that class passes, drop ins, courses and event fees cannot be refunded.
Q: IF A CLASS IS FULL, IS THERE A WAITING LIST?
A: Yes. If you are on the waiting list, you will be notified by email if a place becomes available and you will have 30 minutes to complete your booking before the next person on the list is notified.
Q: HOW MUCH IS A DROP IN?
A: A drop in costs £10 per class.
Q: HOW DO THE CLASS PASSES WORK?
A: Class passes must be booked online and can be used for any of our Hatha, Gentle Hatha, Hatha Flow and Restorative classes.
The Six-Class pass gives you 6 classes and can be used on any class within 7 weeks from the date you first attend. This pass is £48 so it works out at £8 per class.
The Twelve-Class pass gives you 12 classes and can be used on any class within 8 weeks from the date you first attend. This pass is £90 so it works out at £7.50 per class and is ideal if you'd like to come more than once a week (it averages out at 1.5 classes per week).
Q: ARE THERE SET TERM DATES FOR THE CLASS PASSES?
A: No. You can start using the class pass at any time and buy your next one as soon as you use up all your classes or as soon as it expires, whichever occurs first.
Q: IF I HAVE BOUGHT A CLASS PASS, DO I STILL NEED TO BOOK MY PLACE?
A: Yes. You'll need to log in to book your place for each class that you wish to attend. You can book your place for all of the classes in one go when you buy your pass, or individually on a class-by-class basis. When you log in you’ll be able to see how many classes you have remaining and the date that the pass will expire. Remember that if you can no longer attend you can reschedule classes up to 4 hours before the class starts.
Q: CAN MULTIPLE PEOPLE USE THE SAME CLASS PASS?
A: No. One class pass has to be bought per person (or alternatively you can drop in).
Q: CAN CHILDREN COME TO YOUR ADULT CLASSES?
A: Teens aged 12+ are welcome to come to our adult classes, however please contact us prior to booking to discuss the suitability of the class for your son or daughter. For ages 12-15, it's £7 to drop in, or £30 for a Six-Class pass. For ages 16+ adult pricing applies.
Q: FOR PREGNANCY YOGA, POSTNATAL YOGA OR YOGA FOR BEGINNERS CAN I DROP IN?
A: No. These classes can only be booked as courses. Should you wish to cancel your place or if you miss a class, payments are not refundable or transferrable to future courses. If you are not yet at 14 weeks when the Pregnancy Yoga course starts you are welcome to start part way through. If your baby is not yet 6 weeks old at the start of the Postnatal Yoga course then you are welcome to start part way through. Our booking system will adjust pricing accordingly.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY PLACE ON A WORKSHOP OR RETREAT?
A: Should you wish to cancel your place on a workshop or retreat, payments are not refundable and are not transferrable to future events.
