If you’re injured or have other ongoing issues, please let your teacher know at the start of the class. You can always contact us directly and we can talk to your prior to attending about how best to manage injuries or which classes might be best suited for you.

What to wear?

Soft, comfy clothing that you can move in. Classes are done without shoes and usually socks so feel free to turn up in thongs or ugg boots!

Which is the best class for me?

You will be looked after whichever class you come to. We have lots of different classes so there’s something for everyone. Our teachers are sensitive to the needs of beginners, new people to the studio and those of us who are a bit rusty! The best way to know if a class works for you is to give it a go. We have a 3 week intro pass for new students giving you unlimited access to all classes on the timetable for three weeks so you can get a feel for our different Yoga styles, classes and teachers.
