Please find below the most common questions answered.
What style of Yoga do you teach?
My classes are based on classic yoga, what most people know as hatha yoga. If you have done any style of yoga, you will recognise most of the postures, though the approach I use might be different to some classes out there. I like the principles of Scaravelli style, but also like to combine some more dynamic and flowing sequences into the class. The class always end with a relaxation.
I also teach Restorative Yoga; a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. If you take a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. It is a completely different experience than most contemporary yoga.
Where do you teach in Brighton and Hove?
I teach at my home, in a studio space for up to six students. Also wherever there is a suitable space available, be it at your home, or even a meeting room in an office. Please contact me, and we can discuss the options.
How long does a Yoga class take?
Most of my classes last 75 minutes but the session can be anything from 45 to 90 minutes. Most importantly there needs to be time for relaxation at the end.
What do I need to bring?
Comfortable clothing, that allows you to stretch and you don't mind rolling around on the floor with. i have blankets but you might want to bring a warm layer to wear for the relaxation. I have yoga mats, blocks , belts and bolsters, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
What else is useful to know?
Drinking water is recommended, but preferably after the practice, rather that during. Also it is best not to have a big meal just before the class.
I will ask students about their injuries or any medical conditions that might be affected by yoga practise. If you have some and do not wish to share the information with others, please let me know before the class, fully confidentially of course.
