Nicola teaches Hatha style yoga where we work the body and calm the mind
It’s not about fancy poses
But getting you to breathe
Move your body
And have a deep relaxation
If we don’t look after ourselves first, how can we be there for anyone else!
What do I wear?
It’s important to be comfortable and have freedom of movement for yoga so comfortable clothing and we practise in bare feet
What do I bring?
I recommend bringing a bottle of water, a yoga mat and a small blanket
(Mats can also be rented for £1 per class)
Can I do yoga if I’m not flexible?
Absolutely! You are a perfect candidate for yoga. Many people think they need to be bendy to do yoga, but that’s nonsense. Come as you are and you will find that yoga practice will help you become more flexible.
This newfound agility will be balanced by strength, coordination, and enhanced cardiovascular health, as well as a sense of physical confidence and overall well-being.
What if I have an injury or condition that might affect my ability to participate?
While yoga has been proven to benefit conditions ranging from sports injuries to chronic illnesses, I encourage you to let me know if you have a condition you might need to work around. It is also important that you listen to how you feel and become aware of what your body is telling you. Yoga rewards dedication and work, but it is equally important to rest and recover when you need to
A few guidelines which will help you enjoy your class:
Please arrive for your class in plenty of time, at least 10 minutes as classes start on time
Turn off you mobile phone and leave your shoes outside the studio
Please avoid wearing heavy perfumes or colognes
Please don’t chat during class, the yoga room is a silent space
Feel free to take a break at any time during class by sitting or lying quietly on your mat
If you need to leave the class early please leave the room quietly before Savasana (relaxation) which usually last 15 minutes
If you have any queries or concerns, feel free to speak to me after class
