Loose comfortable clothing should be worn; cotton tracksuit bottoms or yoga trousers, loose t-shirt and a warm jumper for example. Feet will be bare in class but if you like, socks with a grip on the soles (such as ‘ToeSox’) may be worn. Bring warm socks to put on in relaxation.
A small number of mats, blocks and belts are available to borrow for the session but if you have your own please bring them.
Please bring at least one blanket.
A bottle of water and a sense of humour are also good items to bring along and if you can arrive at least 5 minutes before the class begins that would be great. We start and finish on time.
Before class it is important that you complete a health questionnaire – this can be emailed to you on request. The form is necessary for your safety and to enable me to offer alternative postures.
Do not eat a meal for 2 hours before coming.
Classes are currently for over 18’s only.
Please don’t bring your children with you. I understand childcare difficulties but unfortunately I haven’t facilities to look after children.
I look forward to welcoming you to a class soon; I hope you enjoy your Yoga; smile, breathe and have fun!
Energise the body and calm the mind.

Why do we end the class with Namaste?
This is a traditional Indian greeting – here is one translation (origin unknown). I think it is beautiful!
My soul honours your soul.
I honour the place in you where the entire universe resides.
I honour the light, love, truth, beauty and peace within you because it is also within me.
In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
