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.
  • Bolsters, blankets, cushions and pillows are useful for supporting the body in YIN YOGA and RESTORATIVE YOGA. So do bring anything with you that will help you get comfy. THESE ITEMS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR YOGA NIDRA.
  • 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.
  • A sensitive subject but a reminder about good hygiene. Please shower or wash, if necessary, before coming to class. Use deodorant but avoid strong perfumes.Thank you!

When you arrive

  • Please arrive 10 – 15 minutes before class starts to find a space and get settled. If you should arrive late, please enter very quietly, to avoid disturbing others. 
  • Remove your shoes and leaving them outside the yoga room to help keep the floor clean. 
  • Keep mobile phones switched off so you (and others) are not disturbed.
  • Always inform your teacher if you’re pregnant or have any new health concerns/injuries.
  • Come and enjoy yourself. Have no expectations, practise with awareness and openness, have a light, gentle heart. Smiles and laughter are warmly welcomed!
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?
