Guidelines: Care & Safety

The safe practice of Yoga is integral to attending a Yoga class. Please follow qualified professional medical advice on any health, medical, associated conditions and risk. Where you have not done so already, please ensure that you seek qualified medical professional advice prior to attending Yoga class to support any potential or existing conditions. This includes asking your qualified medical professional whether attendance at Yoga is appropriate and whether there is any particular practice, posture or movement that is not suitable. Note that while a range of advice and guidance may be provided during class, this does not replace or diminish the advice provided by a qualified medical professional. Please be mindful during class as to how you are feeling and responding on a physical level. It is essential to avoid pain or strain or overexertion or stress, by stopping and resting whenever needed and avoiding practices which may be unsuitable. You are most welcome to stop and rest easy at any time! 


Class Scheduling

On occasions, a class may be delayed, postponed, cancelled due to unforeseen events or for scheduled breaks. You may request to be placed on a contact list to be advised of such occurrences where possible.
