What style of yoga is right for me?
There are many different styles of yoga, some styles are dynamic and will make you sweat, while others are very gentle and slow moving. All styles of yoga have benefits, so evaluating your individual needs and personality type will help point you in the right direction. You can read a description of the styles of yoga offered at the Yoga Spot on our Classes page. We recommend trying as many different styles as you can to find one suitable for you.
Is it safe to do yoga if I have an injury or medical condition?
In most cases the answer to that question is yes. In fact, yoga is an excellent way to support the body in its healing process. However, you will want to inform your doctor or health care provider before you begin your practice. Please be sure to let your yoga teacher know what is going on, so they can address your specific needs.
I just found out I am pregnant, should I do yoga?
Yoga is a great way to support your body and the newly forming body of your child, however, there are some precautions. If you already attend a regular yoga class please tell your teacher as soon as you possibly can. If you haven’t been attending a regular class then our pregnancy specific yoga class on a Monday evening is for all levels of pregnancy.
What do I need to prepare for a class?
- Please wear comfortable workout attire – layers are often best, as your body temperature may change.
- Be prepared to work in bare feet.
- Please refrain from wearing strong colognes or perfumes.
- Bring a towel if you sweat during class.
- We hire out mats at £1 per use, however, we highly recommend you bring your own mat.
- Avoid practising with a full stomach and drink some water before class to remain hydrated.
- Yoga is a non-competitive process. Always work within your own limitations, be patient and compassionate, listen to your body and don't force yourself into a posture. Most of all: remember to enjoy the practice!
