Frequently Asked Questions

I'm not flexible - can I do Yoga?

Yes, yoga can help to maintain a sensible range of movement for the joints, and every one is encouraged to work within their own ability. If you have difficulty getting up from the floor, speak to us beforehand so we can make sure you have the right props to hand. Or you can arrange a one to one session with Lizzie to assess the most beneficial practice for you.

What “type” or “style” of yoga is it?

There are a confusing number of ‘brands’ of yoga, which implies a rigid format. Our sessions are based on some aspects of Hatha Yoga, and the content is drawn from many teachers and influences.

I'm pregnant – is it suitable for me?

Yoga is renowned for being beneficial during pregnancy and birth. During this special time, it is better to go to a class especially designed for this, with a specifically trained yoga tutor. Contact the British Wheel of Yoga, or the Birthlight Trust.

Do I have to book or pay in advance?

No, it is a ‘drop-in’ session, so you only pay when you attend. It is relevant to say that a commitment to regular practise reaps the most benefit!

I have some health issues – is it suitable for me?

It is best to check with your GP or medical specialist first. It is important to let Lizzie know of your condition before you start the practice, all health information is strictly confidential.
