A lot of us first look to yoga for the physical benefits we have heard about (more flexibility, more core strength, weight loss, good sleep etc) or we look to yoga because we are stressed out and hoping yoga might be the answer that will help us put the balance back in our lives. Yoga can do all of the above and more, but you have to be open to it and you have to practise.  Our classes will help you build poise, grace, strength, balance and endurance.  Each student is encouraged to work at his or her own level.

Regardless of your current level of fitness, this will be a challenging and rigorous workout .your first class could be a little overwhelming, but know that with practise things will get familiar.
If you are new to yoga we advice you to try our beginners foundation classes. If at any time during practise you need to take a break, simply drop out of the pose, regroup and catch your breath.  First timers may feel aches the next day in places, they didn’t realise they had muscles .Our relaxation exercises at the end of every practise will ensure you leave feeling calm and content.
You should wear comfortable clothing. You will need a yoga mat, towel, and water – all these items are available to rent or buy at the studio. Please arrive at the studio 10 minutes prior to your class.
Please remember to turn your cell phones off before you enter the class. All personal belongings can be placed in cubicles provided in the studio. No shoes are allowed in the class.
We encourage students to pace themselves and determine the intensity that works best for them in each pose and throughout the class. Magic will happen if you stick to it and challenge your physical and mental edges.
11) Does my body have to be flexible?
Flexibility is something yoga gives you; you don’t have to be flexible to start a yoga practise. Focus on your breath, be ready to sweat and embrace where your physical body is. Flexibility will come with time and regular practise.  We will help you find your place in every yoga pose.
