Preparing for your yoga class.

Before class

  • Before your first class, please complete and submit the health form. If you have health conditions that you'd like to discuss before you attend, then please don't hesitate to contact Caron on 01788 822975 or 07786 911593.
  • As with any movement or exercise program, it is always a good idea to consult your doctor prior to participating if you have any specific concerns.
  • Please make sure you've booked and paid for your class before you attend. The online booking and payment system will help you get organised.  
  • It is recommended that you do not eat a big meal for 2 hours before class. A light snack such is fine

Yoga mats and props

  • You’ll need to bring a yoga mat. If you don't have one and would like to borrow one for your first class, then let me know and I will bring you one. Having your own mat is so much nicer though and will encourage you to practise yoga at home. 
  • Props such as blocks, bricks and belts will be available for you to use. If you have your own, then do bring them along.
  • Blankets, cushions and pillows are also useful for supporting the body so bring anything with you that will help you get comfy.  
  • We do yoga in bare feet. You can wear pilates-type socks if you'd prefer - they have little sticky bits on their soles to stop you slipping. Bring warm socks to wear for relaxation towards the end of class.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that you can move around in easily. Layers help to adjust for temperature changes during and after class.
  • Please use good hygiene and do not wear strong deodorants or perfumes.

When you arrive

  • Please arrive 10 – 15 minutes before class starts to find a space and get settled. If you should arrive late, please wait until the beginning meditation is over before you enter, very quietly, to avoid disturbing others. 
  • Removing your shoes and leaving them outside the yoga practice room will help to keep the floor clean. Thank you!
  • Keep mobile phones switched off.
  • Always inform your teacher if you’re pregnant or have any new health concerns/injuries.
  • Come and enjoy yourself. Have no expectations of yourself or others, be open to the moment and have a light, gentle heart.
Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?
