FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What can I expect in your class?
My classes are based in vinyasa, so they're energetic and will get the blood pumping. However, unlike most vinyasa offerings, my classes are always different, so students never get bored or stuck in their practice.
In all classes, I will warm you up properly with stretches focussed on the group of 2-3 challenging (or “peak”) poses that we'll be attepting in that particular class. I will break down each of the challenging poses so you can fully participate, even if it is your first time. In almost all classes, we will spend time at the wall, to help us go upside down or further into the challenging poses. Finally, I will cool you down with poses to counteract the areas we have worked on in that class, meaning that you will feel less sore the next day.
What’s the difference between level 1 and level 2?
Both levels follow the same class structure.
Level 1 is suitable for everyone.
Level 2 will push you a bit harder than level 1, and is suitable for people with some experience in yoga.
If you are unsure which class to choose, either drop me an email, or try level 1 first and see how you get on.
I have never done yoga before, can I still participate?
Yes – but I recommend that you come to the level 1 class.
Can I come to your class if I am injured?
Absolutely, but please drop me an email before booking so that we can discuss. For certain types of injury, a private class might be more suitable.
Can I come to your class if I am pregnant?
This depends on a number of factors. Drop me an email, and let’s discuss. If you are pregnant, please do not sign up for a class unless we have spoken first.
What should I wear to class?
Anything that you feel comfortable in, and allows you to move freely. As a heads up, we will probably do inversions, so think about what your clothes will do when you’re upside down!
What equipment do I need?
I recommend that you use a mat or comfortable non-slip surface, and bring lots of water. I am a big fan of props, and will often ask you to use up to two blocks and a strap. At a pinch, blocks can be substituted for books, and a rolled up t-shirt or pair of tights can be used as a strap! I use the wall in almost every class, so I recommend that you set up next to an area with a clear bit of wall.
What if I’m running late?
I encourage you to arrive 5-10 minutes before class starts. I cannot admit students more than 5 minutes after class has begun. Not only does this disrupt the class, but after this point, I am unable to guarantee that you would be warmed up enough to practise safely.
How does booking work?
All classes are booked via the website. Once you have paid, a zoom link will be emailed to you. You will need to install zoom on your computer - you can download it here.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations made more than 12h prior to the class commencing will not be charged and will be credited back to your account.
Do I need a camera?
You don’t need a camera if you just want to watch the class. If you want me to be able to see you so I can give feedback, then yes you will need a camera!
I can’t attend live, can I still buy your class?
Each of my classes will be recorded, and the recording will be available for purchase 24h after.
Will I be recorded?
My classes are recorded, but it’s only a recording of me. You will not be in any videos.
