Ready for yoga? Be safe.
As an instructor I want you to have an authentic, comfortable yoga experience. Ultimately you are responsible for your own safety. So make good choices.....

- Do not eat for at least 2 hours before class. If you must have a snack, keep it very light.
- Had you an accident, surgery or any health issues in the last year? Get the ok from your doctor to practice yoga.
- If you recently gave birth, congratulations. Please take your time; no yoga until baby is at least 6 weeks old. Medical clearance is required.
- At the end of class you can cool down suddenly, so bring a blanket to keep yourself snug and cosy.
- Yoga is a healing art, but I am not a medic or physiotherapist. Neither am I trained in counselling, so if there are emotional issues to deal with, maybe you'll combine yoga with talk therapy? We all need support sometimes.
My classes are concerned with three elements; asana (physical movements), pranayama (breathing exercises) and savasana (relaxation). I mention the correct Sanskrit names here out of respect for the tradition, but linguistics are no obstacle; you will receive instruction in plain English.
