FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I'M TOTALLY NEW TO YOGA + HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING, ARE YOUR CLASSES SUITABLE FOR ME?

YES! OUR CLASSES ARE PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS! THE TEACHER WILL DEMONSTRATE THE WHOLE CLASS + GIVE YOU INSTRUCTIONS AS YOU GO SO YOU CAN FOLLOW ALONG. YOU CAN LET ONE OF THE BHY TEAM MEMBERS KNOW THAT IT'S YOUR FIRST YOGA CLASS WHEN YOU ARRIVE SO THEY CAN HELP YOU SETTLE IN, ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE AND GIVE YOU ALL THE SUPPORT YOU NEED.

 

I DON'T OWN A YOGA MAT, IS THAT OKAY?

ALL GOOD! WE'VE GOT PLENTY OF SPARE YOGA MATS THAT YOU CAN BORROW (PLAN TO ARRIVE 10 MINS EARLY TO MAKE SURE YOU CAN GRAB ONE). YOU CAN ALWAYS BRING A TOWEL OR A SARONG INSTEAD - LOT'S OF PEOPLE DO THAT + IT'S TOTALLY FINE TO USE :)

DO I NEED TO REGISTER FOR THE CLASS OR CAN I JUST SHOW UP?

YOU CAN JUST SHOW UP! NO NEED TO REGISTER BEFOREHAND.

 

WHAT TYPE OF YOGA IS THE CLASS?

ALL OF OUR CLASSES ARE BEGINNER FRIENDLY VINYASA YOGA. IN OUR VINYASA YOGA CLASSES YOU WILL MOVE THROUGH A FLOWING SEQUENCE OF YOGA POSES, CONNECTING ONE POSE TO THE NEXT USING THE BREATH. THERE IS NOT A SET SEQUENCE THAT THE TEACHER FOLLOWS SO EVERY CLASS WILL BE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT. OUR YOGA CLASSES ALLOW YOU TO WORK THE ENTIRE BODY, IMPROVE FITNESS, LOWER STRESS LEVELS AND EXPERIENCE DEEP RELAXATION.

 
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

YOU CAN BRING A WATER BOTTLE - DRINK WATER WHEN EVER YOU NEED THROUGHOUT THE CLASS. if you’re attending a yoga in the park class you can BRING SUNSCREEN IF YOU LIKE - THERE IS ALWAYS PLENTY OF SHADY SPOTS TO CHOOSE FROM + YOU'RE WELCOME TO MOVE YOUR MAT THROUGHOUT CLASS IF YOU'RE GETTING TOO MUCH SUN.

 

WHAT DO I NEED TO WEAR?

WEAR ANYTHING THAT YOU'RE COMFORTABLE MOVING AROUND IN - DOESN'T HAVE TO BE 'ACTIVE WEAR'.

 

I HAVEN'T EXERCISED IN A WHILE + FEEL PRETTY UNFIT - IS THIS CLASS SUITABLE FOR ME?

YES! YOU'RE WELCOME TO JOIN OUR CLASSES REGARDLESS OF YOUR CURRENT FITNESS LEVEL. YOU CAN GO AT YOUR OWN PACE, DO WHAT YOU CAN, REST WHENEVER YOU NEED THROUGHOUT THE CLASS + JOIN BACK IN WHEN YOU'RE READY.

WHAT IF I HAVE AN INJURY?

IF YOU HAVE AN INJURY (KNEE, HIP, SHOULDER, BACK ETC) OR ANY OTHER CONCERN - WE INVITE YOU TO SPEAK TO THE TEACHER BEFORE YOUR CLASS + THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SUGGEST SOME MODIFICATIONS FOR YOU. ULTIMATELY IT IS BEST TO LISTEN TO YOUR BODY - YOU KNOW IT BEST. IF SOMETHING IS HURTING THROUGHOUT THE CLASS, EASE OFF OR MODIFY THE POSE. YOU CAN ALWAYS REST + JOIN BACK IN WHEN YOU'RE READY.

HOW MUCH DOES THE CLASS COST + WHEN DO I PAY?

ALL OF OUR CLASSES ARE DONATION BASED SO YOU CAN can pay as you feel or as you can afford for the class. YOU PAY AFTER THE CLASS. YOU WILL FIND A JAR up the front of the class FOR YOUR PAYMENT. ask the teacher if you would pay with your debit/credit card.

HOW MUCH SHOULD I PAY FOR A DONATION CLASS?

YOU DECIDE THE AMOUNT YOU CONTRIBUTE FOR THE CLASS. CHOOSE AN AMOUNT THAT IS AFFORDABLE + REPRESENTS THE VALUE OF THE CLASS FOR YOU. IF YOU CAN, WE WOULD LOVE A MINIMUM CONTRIBUTION OF $5 TO HELP COVER OUR COST. WE ARE NOT SPONSORED OR GOVERNMENT FUNDED AND WE RUN CLASSES BECAUSE WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT MAKING YOGA ACCESSIBLE AND AFFORDABLE.

CAN I BRING MY DOG TO YOGA IN THE PARK?

SURE. WE'LL LEAVE IT UP TO YOU TO DECIDE WHETHER YOU NEED TO TIE UP YOUR DOG OR WHETHER THEY'LL BE COOL JUST CHILLING NEXT TO YOU WHILE YOU DO THE CLASS.

CAN I BRING MY KIDS?

SURE. YOU'RE WELCOME TO BRING THE WHOLE FAMILY! WE'RE PRETTY CHILLED  + WE LOVE THAT WE HAVE SO MANY KIDS ATTENDING OUR CLASSES. WE DON’T USUALLY HAVE ANY PROBLEMS HOWEVER, PLEASE KEEP IN MIND LOUD OR DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOUR PROBABLY WON’T GO SO WELL WITH THE VIBE OF THE CLASS.
