Why You Should Try Yoga

On the beginner yoga course, you will receive a thorough grounding in the basic yoga postures. These postures are the foundation of the more advanced yoga that you will slowly build up to. The course emphasis is on having you learn and do yoga postures that are at your level, that anyone can do. The training will include key parts of yoga such as Asana (movement), Pranayama (breath) and Meditation (focus/mind) in line with the authentic essence of yoga, and the teachings of the great Indian sages.

The advantages of the yoga you will learn with us include:

  • Instructors give clear instruction that details how to get into the poses
  • Due to clear instruction, you do learn to do the poses correctly rather than rushing through them

  • Having a better understanding of poses gives you the independence and confidence to practice at home

  • Because you are correctly shown how to get into the proper yoga asana's, you get all the health, energy and calming benefits that yoga gives you

  • Postures are taught in steps, making sure the foundation of the pose is right, which makes them easier to do and learn

  • The teachers take the time to assist, and know how important it is to do so

  • Yoga teachers are trained and certified, and supervised by a long term and experienced teacher. You are in safe hands, with maximum learning opportunity

  • Over time, you are trained in how to do more advanced positions, but only when your body and mind is ready for them. You feel comfortable and supported, but in due course get even more of the wonderful benefits that keep drawing more and more people to yoga.

  • There is a minimal chance of hurting yourself with our studio, because of the knowledge and support of teachers.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Should I Arrive

Beginners Yoga Course Classes start and finish on time. Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to class to allow the teachers time for registration. There is a lot to be covered in each class, hence “starting on time” means being on your mat with all your equipment ready to start. Kindly note, to support practitioners and the teacher, we have a closed-door policy, ie the teacher locks the door 3 minutes past the start time.

For first time students, we recommend recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your first class so that you have time to complete our new student registration form and receive a studio orientation before attending your first class.

Mobile Phone Policy & Personal Belongings

Kindly switch off or set your mobile phone to silent before entering the space. Please leave your mobile and personal items in the space provided, located on your left when you walk in the studio door. No personal items (water & towels excepted) or shoes are allowed on the practice floor – this is to allow you and your fellow participants unobstructed use of space when you move.

Hydration and digestion

Hydrate yourself before and after class. We have a filtered water station for filling water bottles but also have bottles of water for sale. It is not recommended to have a full meal directly prior to class.

What do I need to bring

1. Wear something light, comfortable and fitted (not baggy). Singlets, leggings and normal gym wear will suffice. What is important is for you to feel comfortable moving without clothing disrupting your practice.

2. Yoga practise is done barefoot. Kindly leave your socks and shoes in the locker area.

3. Mats available for hire at the studio for $1. If you have sensitive knees (when kneeling, or on hands and knees), double up your mat. You can absolutely bring your own mat. We even have space available to leave your mat between classes.

Health Information and History of Injury

If you have any history of injury, illness, or anything about your health we should know about, PLEASE INFORM YOUR INSTRUCTOR BEFORE CLASS. Kindly note that yoga practice is not a substitute for therapy or medication, hence if you have any pre-existing condition, including pregnancy, injury, history of illness, surgery, or any other symptoms which may affect your health or the safety of your practice, please consult your GP or health care provider prior to commencing practise.

WE WHOLEHEARTEDLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO PRACTICE AT YOUR OWN PACE. You can come down to downward facing dog pose or active child’s pose (two alternative resting postures), at any time. Don't worry, you will learn these postures in the first week!

Every asana (posture) also has a simpler variation. Speak to the instructor after class, if you needed an easier variation in class. It is important for us to know our classes support your needs.
