FEW QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Why are your classes so small?
I believe that yoga is not just an exercise, but healing tool too. However, it will only work if you do it right. I run small classes so I can support you on your journey to become stronger and healthier person. Smaller classes allow me to focus on each of you regularly, to make sure your technique is perfect and in turn you can then truly enjoy the experience of yoga.
Do I need my own yoga mat?
No, you don't need to bring one. I do have enough spare yoga mats, because I understand that you may not be willing to invest in your own if you are just starting. However, over time if you became yoga addict, I'd strongly recommend investing into good yoga mat as it will definitely improve your experience. There is a great selection of different types and we can discuss together which one would suit your needs the most.
Are there any restrictions to doing yoga?
Yoga is a type of exercise which can be done by almost everybody. As with any other exercise, however, we have to apply some common sense. If you suffer from any illness or do have any injury, please let me know in advance and we can discuss your options. In few cases I may ask you to consult your GP first. If you decide not to let me know about your limitations, you may end up harming yourself permanently due to inappropriate pace or moves.
Can kids attend your classes?
Every teenager between 15 - 18 years old can attend my classes, but only with adult supervision or with hand written consent form from their lawful parent/representative. Anyone younger 15 years cannot currently attend my Power Yoga classes.
As I am fully qualified teacher of yoga for children too, we could discuss the possibility of running either private or public yoga classes for kids, if the interest was there.
Can I attend your class without prior booking?
Yes, you can. However, you may find yourself without a place and be sent back home or turning up to a cancelled class. I would strongly advice to book your place at least 24 hours in advance. As my current yoga classes are run in "pay-as-use" studio, I may be cancelling any classes without clients day before the class. For obvious reasons I would not be aware of your intention to attend.
What shall I wear and do you provide shower facilities?
I recommend wearing some loose sport clothes which will allow you to perform wide variety of moves. At the same time it shouldn't be anything too warm, as disregard to common believe, you may get very sweaty. You may need to bring your own towel and a bottle of water as well.
There are no shower facilities at any of my classes.
Well, firstly it is a reference to the past years spend in the beautiful part of South Wales, where my business started. Lush green place full of Ewes, perfect for some relaxing outdoor yoga. My original business was called differently, by name my awesome former clients "invented". However, moving to Sheffield required little bit of re-branding, as the original name wouldn't probably evoke the same feelings and connections.
Secondly, I just like it a lot and I hope you will too.
