What to wear

Your body should feel free while moving, so loose, comfortable clothing such as shorts and a t-shirt are recommended. Choose fabrics that allow the skin to breathe freely, such as cotton. In the winter months, lightweight tracksuit pants or leggings are usually worn. (Classes are taken barefoot.)

Change rooms are available.

What to bring

Mats and props are provided by the Yoga Room. However, for hygiene purposes we suggest you purchase your own personal mat if you intend to practice regularly (either at the Yoga Room, at home or while travelling).

Precautions

If you have any injuries or medical conditions, please inform your teacher before the class begins. Your teacher will be able to modify the way in which you approach the more challenging postures.

If you require specific ongoing therapy a smaller class or private tuition may be recommended.

If you are pregnant please inform your teacher before the class begins.

For women menstruating, avoid inversions and strong abdominal movements. (Your teacher will advise on alternative postures.) A consistent yoga practice can help to regulate menstrual disorders so continue to work actively, but gently. If in doubt, speak to your teacher.

Meals

Yoga should be practiced on an empty stomach and bladder. Wait approximately 2 hours after a light snack or 4 hours after a heavy meal. Please do not consume water whilst in the class.
