Regular Classes

Yoga Classes at Venues

Classes generally start with simple poses and gradually move towards more advanced poses. I am trained to guide you to work through the poses safely so you get maximum benefit for your body. During lockdown ,with government guidance, I will adapt my teaching to suit the current times. There will be no physical adjustments and I will remain in my mat area, as will you. We will no longer be able to use walls, but I hope with the smaller numbers to use yoga chairs that can be disinfected between use. We end the class with 10-15 minutes relaxation and breathing techniques to give you relief from stress and tension. You will leave the class feeling lighter and calmer…taller ! 😉

Your practice

Due to COVID safety measures, please do not bring anything into the venues other than yourself and your yoga equipment because all surfaces where you put other belongings would have cleaned before other people come in. Venues are shared community spaces.

Wear suitable leggings and a t-shirt you can tuck in. I need to see your knees and ankles, so baggy tracksuits bottoms or joggers are not suitable. Yoga is practiced with bare feet.

See what equipment is provided in the class descriptions above as the venues differ in what they can provide. Please bring your own mat if you have one because this advisable for hygiene reasons.

Please inform me if you have any medical issues or if you are pregnant.

On the day you can let me know if you are menstruating.

Yoga is non violent and non-competitive. Remember: your body is your responsibility, so come out of a pose if you feel you need to.

Do not drink water during a class or your home practice, but do drink plenty before and afterwards.

It is a good idea to practice at home as well and I can provide homework sheets to guide your home practice.

Please telephone or text me to find out my bank details. Please remember to include your name in the reference and date of the class you are booking.

Tips for virtual yoga classes

You will need enough space to do the poses (floor space and height).

Please have your yoga props nearby if you have them (ideally a yoga mat and some blankets or towels, and a yoga belt or other suitable long belt). See above for a full equipment list.

It is important that I can see you fully (for your safety and corrections), and also that that you can see and hear me. It is worthwhile trying out and testing your camera and screen set ups before a lesson.

How do I join the virtual yoga class using Zoom?

The tool used for the online lesson is called Zoom, and the sessions are referred to as Zoom meetings. Please ensure you are able to use Zoom on your device.

I will send you the Zoom link e-mail on the day of the class.

On the day of your lesson I will open the Zoom meeting at 6.15 pm.

When you join the class you be held in the waiting room until I admit you. While you are waiting you can check that your camera, screen and microphone are all working.

After I have admitted all booked students and started the lesson, I will lock the meeting . It is important that you join in good time.

During the lesson I will normally have your sound on mute (silent), because background noises from multiple sources will interfere with the clarity of my voice. If I need to speak with you I will ask you to “unmute” yourself. You can also do this if you need to speak to me.
