DO I NEED TO BOOK IN ADVANCE?
Yes, classes need to be be pre-booked online, over the phone, or at the studio. Because class spaces are limited, we have a strict 2-hour cancellation policy on all of our classes. Classes must be cancelled online, we cannot accept cancellations via phone or email.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
We suggest wearing comfortable and light clothing. Our studio is moderately heated but the extra bodies in the room mean that busy classes can get pretty steamy! We therefore advise bringing a towel and to make sure you are well hydrated before the class. You are welcome to bring your own mat or use one of the studio mats provided free of charge.
IS IT NORMAL TO FIND THE FIRST FEW CLASSES DIFFICULT?
Yes! Yoga is much more cardio vascular than most people imagine. First-timers may also wake up the next day feeling a few aches in places they didn’t realise they had muscles but the great news is this is because Power Yoga works. The more you practice the stronger and suppler your body will become and, in turn, the more you will enjoy your practice. With a bit of dedication you’ll make rapid progress. Our relaxation exercises at the end of every practice will ensure you leave feeling calm and content.
DOES MY BODY HAVE TO BE FLEXIBLE?
We all have different bodies and we think that’s something to celebrate. There are some people who will never be able to put their feet behind their ears but so what?! Those who can look impressive but it doesn’t make them healthier or happier than anyone else. That said, we do believe that you should work to improve your flexibility. Better flexibility means better circulation which means a healthier body. But the fact is you don’t have to have the hamstrings of a gymnast to benefit from the yoga we teach. We will help you to find your place in every Yoga pose.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PRACTICE POWER YOGA?
If you are able to get on your mat at least twice a week, you will soon see your body changing in the most wonderful ways; becoming stronger, suppler and more toned. You should also find yourself dealing better with some of the more tricky things that life throws at us from time to time.
DO YOU OFFER PRIVATE SESSIONS?
Yes. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a private session with one of our teachers.
