Equipment provided

Please bring your own Yoga mat to class. They can be purchased very reasonably in a lot of major stores nowadays. Pillows and blankets are supplied for relaxation, meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises). Blocks and straps are also supplied to assist you in your Yoga posture work.

What to wear

Comfy long pants and a t-shirt. Nothing too restrictive or too tight fitting. Ladies please wear bras that are not under wired or tight in any way, because they can cause restriction when doing postures or breathing exercises. Please avoid jeans or similar trousers with tight waistbands and zips. During practice it is advisable to remove all jewellery so there are no restrictions to movement or damage to precious rings or necklaces. 

General things to be aware of

Yoga requires you to sit and lie on the floor during class, so if you have trouble getting up or down from the floor this may not be the class for you.

Please come along 5 mins before the class starts. Late attendance may disturb the initial relaxation time of others students.
