Am I Ready for a Yoga Class?
Starting yoga can be a daunting experience. Many people have preconceived notions about what yoga entails, believing they need to be flexible, strong, or knowledgeable about poses before they begin. You don’t need any of those things. My classes are open to everyone, and you can come as you are. There’s no need to compare yourself to others; focus on your practice and what you can achieve in the present moment.
Is Yoga Only for Women?
Not at all! My yoga classes are open to all, regardless of gender identity. I strive to create an inclusive and welcoming space that values and respects individuals, embracing their unique experiences. Yoga is a practice for everyone, and I’m committed to making it accessible to all.
I’m New to Yoga, Which Class Should I Choose?
For beginners, I recommend starting with my ‘Flow & Chill’ class. This session is specifically designed for newcomers and takes place on Tuesdays at Houlton School from 7:15 pm to 8:15 pm. ‘Flow & Chill’ offers a balanced blend of flowing movements and relaxation techniques, allowing you to ease into the practice while finding moments of calm and tranquility.
What Style of Yoga Will I Be Learning?
In my classes, we practise Vinyasa Flow, a dynamic style of yoga where poses are thoughtfully strung together to form a fluid sequence of movement. I bring a contemporary and modern-day vibe to my classes, combining the essence of ancient yogic wisdom with present-day relevance. You’ll hear some of the postures in the ancient yogic language of Sanskrit, and we incorporate thoughtfully chosen quotations to enrich your practice.
What Should I Wear?
Opt for comfortable, stretchy clothing that’s not too loose. Layers are a good idea, and remember that yoga is practised with bare feet. You can start with socks if it’s cold but should remove them when the session begins. Special grip yoga socks are an option if you prefer not to go barefoot.
What Do I Need to Bring?
For all classes, bring your yoga mat and a water bottle. Depending on the class, consider two yoga bricks and a block, a blanket, an eye pillow, or a bolster for added comfort and support.
What if I can’t Do All the Poses? No Worries!
Yoga is non-competitive, and it’s entirely normal not to do every pose in a class. I provide plenty of options, and you can rest at any point. Your comfort and well-being are my top priorities. Join me on the mat, exactly as you are, and embrace the transformative power of yoga in an inclusive and welcoming environment!
