What should I bring?
You don’t need to bring anything other than yourself. We provide all equipment although if you have your own mat you are welcome to bring it.
What should I wear?
Wear clothes that feel comfortable and that you can move freely in. Something similar to what you might go to the gym in would be fine. Bear in mind that you might take your head lower than your hips so a loose top might fall down and expose more than you planned. Best to wear something which is reasonably close fitting on top.
Can I eat before yoga?
Ideally not within 2 hours of class but a small snack beforehand is ok. Don’t practice on a full tummy.
Do I need water?
No, and water breaks will not be cued. However, water is certainly not banned so do bring some if you think you need it. In a non-spill bottle please!
I am too old/overweight/nervous/unfit/unflexible/this/that/the other/ to do yoga …
You almost certainly are not … but we do understand that there can be barriers that students feel will stop them from being able to do yoga. We would encourage you to take a deep breath and come to a beginners class.
If you want to talk to us, or come and see the studio, get in touch and we can set something up.
How often should I come to yoga?
Ideally you should try to practice yoga several times a week. It doesn’t always have to be at the studio. You can also practice at home. We can help you with this, just ask!
Do I have to book?
Yes please, all classes need to be pre-booked.
How old do I have to be to come to class?
Our regular timetabled classes are for 18+ only. If you are 16 or 17 you are welcome with a parent or guardian.
I have asthma, can I practice yoga?
All Emma’s classes are asthma-friendly and do not include breath retention, kapalabhati, bhastrika or other forceful/fast breathing practices. For other classes, please inform your teacher. Always bring your inhaler to class.
