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.
I have never done yoga before, can I still participate?
Yes – but drop me and email before, so we can discuss your fitness level and suitable modifications you might want to take.
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?
Please bring a mat or comfortable non-slip surface, and 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?
Online classes are booked via my 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.
For in person classes, I recommend that you book through my website as well. This will ensure your place in class. At a pinch, I can take payment by card before class, but as the maximum capacity is 14 people, I can't guarantee you a place if you turn up on the day. I do not accept cash.
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 for online classes?
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 online classes live, can I still buy your class?
Each of my online classes will be recorded, and the recording will be available for purchase shortly after.
Will I be recorded?
My online classes are recorded, but it’s only a recording of me. You will not be in any videos.
