Frequently Asked Questions

I know what it is like to go somewhere new or try something for the first time. Your mind is buzzing with lots of questions. So I have put together a list of some frequently asked questions. Hope this helps 🙂


Is the class gentle?

Yes. However we are all different so I encourage people to honour their body and practice within their own abilities as everyones definition of gentle is different

Are the classes small?


How many in a class?

Limited to 7 per class.

How long does the class go for?

90 minutes of Yoga & Meditation.

Do I have to book a class?

Yes, bookings are essential.

Is it too late to join a class when the term has already started?

No. Classes can be joined at any time during the term if there is space available.

What if I can’t attend my class?

Out of courtesy please text or phone me when you can’t attend your class.

How do I pay for yoga classes?

Internet banking when you book or cash by arrangement.

Can I come casually?

Yes. You will need to contact me the week of the class you would like to attend. They can not be booked in advance.

Do you run night time classes?

Yes. Check the class timetable.

Do you run after school time classes?


I have trouble sitting cross legged. Does that matter?

No. There are lots of ways you can sit.

Will yoga help my anxiety?

Yes. One of the main areas I focus on is breath awareness and breathing techniques (Pranayama).

Will yoga help quiet my mind?

Yes. Another area that I focus on is quieting the monkey mind.

I am not very flexible, does that matter?

No. Over time your flexibility in both body and mind will increase.

Do I need to a yoga mat?

No. You can bring a yoga mat if you have one, otherwise I have some in the studio for use and to purchase.

Can I bring my child with me to class?

No. The class is not suitable for children as it is a long time for them to sit quietly and wait. It is also difficult to relax when your child is present and takes away from yours and the other ladies experience.
