What if I don't show up to a class I have reserved a place for?

What do I wear?
We recommend you wear comfortable, stretchy clothing which allows freedom of movement and bare feet. Change rooms are provided. Personal belongings can be stored in the cubby holes in the yoga room.
What do I need to bring?
||For hygienic reasons, please bring your own yoga mat or you may hire a mat for $2 or you may purchase one at the studio. We stock PVC mats for only $25 or Manduka non- toxic, natural rubber mats for $80. Mat hire is free for members.
||A water bottle to re- hydrate. We recommend a stainless steel water bottle which is BPA free, non- toxic, re- useable and therefore, kind to the environment and your health. You may re- fill your bottle from our filtered water dispenser.
||Leave your valuables at home or in the car. If you do need to bring your phone, please turn it off and leave it in a cubby hole in our 2nd room.
||For all our Mums & Bubs classes, we also suggest you bring a blanket for your baby to lie on. We don't recommend you bring a pram but if you need to (for example, you're in walking distance to the studio), please use our back entrance in Harris Lane (2nd street to the right off Harris St) and leave in our 2nd room.
How do I get there and where can I park?
For our address, map and parking information, please click here
Can I get changed at the studio?
Our bathrooms have ample space for you to get changed in. You may leave your clothes in either the cubby holes or on the hooks provided.
When should I arrive?
In order to mentally arrive at yoga (not just physically) please arrive a few minutes early. This will give you time to take off your shoes, get changed, sign in, lay out your mat, chat to your teacher or get to know the other people in the class or do a few warm- up stretches. Showing up late is disruptive to the mood of the class, and you don't get the full benefit of the practice either - a rushing, hectic frame of mind is the antithesis of what Yoga is about. If you are unavoidably late, set up as quickly and quietly as possible. Please note, the studio opens 15 minutes prior to classes (unless there is a class beforehand).
For all 11am, 12.30 and 7.45pm classes, please enter via our bank entrance on Harris Lane to avoid disrupting the previous class.
What should I do when I arrive?
If there is a class prior (this means 11am, 12.30pm & 7.45pm classes) please enter via our back door (on Harris Lane- 2nd lane way off Harris St) and make yourself at home in our second room.
If there is no class prior, please enter via the front door on Willoughby Rd or through the back door (if you have brought your pram).
Please leave your shoes just inside the front or back door (this includes thongs and boots) on the shoe racks provided. Yoga is practised in bare feet. Our studio is a shoe- free environment so that we can leave all the dust, dirt and dead energy from the outside, keeping the yoga studio clean and you more grounded. It symbolises leaving your worries at the door.
Please turn off your phone (rather than on vibrate) and place all your belongings in the pigeon holes or on the hooks provided in our second room
Once you enter the yoga room, please swipe your Member Tag under the Scanner, grab any yoga props you may need and lay out your mat on top of one of our thick charcoal mats (to give you some extra padding).
What is the difference between Hatha and Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga is the perfect compliment to our Hatha (Yang) Yoga classes. In a Hatha class you will predominantly experience standing, dynamic flowing sequences which are not held for long periods of time but will generate heat and give your whole body a 'workout'. Hatha Yoga strengthens and stretches the superficial layers of muscles whereas in a Yin Yoga class, the focus is predominantly on seated or supine poses which are held from 3- 5 minutes to "juice up" your joints and connective tissues, to energise your major organs and to help unblock the major meridians in the body, leaving you feeling deeply restored.
What if I have never done yoga before?
We recommend our Yoga for Beginners course where you will be introduced to yoga postures, breathing techniques and meditation in a safe, friendly and supportive environment. This course will prepare you to attend our general yoga classes. For more information, click here
What if I can't make it to the Beginner's course?
We suggest you start with our Yin Yoga classes or any of the daytime classes where the pace is slower and tend to me smaller. After attending a few classes you will feel more confident to start attending the more dynamic, busier classes.
What if I have an injury or a condition?
Listen to your breath as this is the connection between your mind and body which enables you to listen to what your body is saying (that is, your body speaks to you in the language of sensation). Your Instructor can offer you suggestions and modifications however, your body is your best teacher. If you're listening carefully (by being present with your breath) it will tell you when to back off, skip or modify. If you have less range of motion due to a condition or injury, then do less so as not to exacerbate a problem. As we're all constantly changing, due to age, fitness, injury, different life stresses or cycles on the moon etc, our yoga practice is constantly being modified to some degree. Modifying a pose doesn't mean that we're "missing out" It is simply a way of finding an alternative way of doing a pose to access and awaken the same places in your body in a different way.
In the words of Bryan Kest, "A Yoga class is like a buffet with your Instructor as the Chef. You simply pick and choose what you want to eat and how much you consume. You take as much as you want and leave the rest behind."
Do I need to be flexible enough to get my foot behind my head to do yoga?
You may think that you need to be flexible to practise Yoga, but that's like thinking you need to be able to swim to take swimming lessons. A person who can get their head on their shins in a seated forward bend is not happier and healthier, they just have long hamstrings! Just as we all have different faces, personalities and life experiences, we all have different length hamstrings and different shaped hip joints. So even though the whole class is practising the same pose at the same time, each participant is doing it to the degree that feels appropriate to them in that moment. There is no need to go deeper into a pose unless it feels right otherwise it's not only potentially harmful but all that pushing and straining is counter- productive to releasing the stress and tension you're already carrying in your body from life! The goal of yoga is not to get our foot behind our head (although that would be pretty cool!). According to Bryan Kest, "It is simply to take care of us by quietening down our mind and touching every nook and cranny with love and care to create the optimal environment for healing physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually".
How many times a week should I attend?
Like anything, the more you practise the faster you will see results but consistency is the key. If you can only attend once a week, that's better than nothing but for best results, we suggest you attend at least 2- 3 times per week.
What does it mean by a "baby- led class"?
The birthlight Mother & Baby Yoga, Mums & Bubs Pilates and Combo classes are baby- led. This means, how much activity you are able to participate in is led by your baby. If your baby needs changing, feeding, settling, putting to sleep etc, it is your responsibility to attend to his/ her needs. You're welcome to do all of this within the room and we encourage you to join back in when you can. Like us, babies have good days and bad days. Some days you will be able to participate in an entire class, other days you may spend a lot of time settling your baby. These moments in class teach us to be flexible not just in body, but also in mind.
What if my baby is sleeping?
If this happens in a Mums & Bubs Pilates or Combo class, great! If it happens in a birthlight class, we have dolls who you may practise on and then when your baby wakes up or when you get home, you can practise the new moves with him/ her. Or alternatively, ask your teacher to suggest some exercises for you or take advantage of the quiet time and get some well- earned rest!
Can I still attend classes when my baby starts to crawl?
Once your baby starts to crawl, then we recommend graduating to the birthlight Baby Yoga class for Crawlers and Early Walkers on Mondays at 3.30pm.
What if I'm pregnant?
If you have an existing yoga practise, it is ok to continue to attend your regular classes during your 1st trimester
but we encourage you to back off and to avoid the following: strong backbends and closed twists and to step rather than jump back in the sun salutations/ vinyasas and you may prefer to avoid lying on your tummy. Relaxation is particularly important during this time for you and your baby as this is when her brain develops as well as her future stress responses. Therefore, gentle yoga, meditation and relaxation are important during this time.
From your 2nd trimester onwards
, we recommend you attend one of our 9 specialised pregnancy yoga or yogalates classes, with one of our highly educated and experienced Instructors, where we don't practise any contraindicated poses. To find out more, click here
If you're new to yoga, we recommend you wait until your 2nd trimester to start our pregnancy classes.
What if I'm Menstruating?
Don't practise any inverted postures (upside down postures such as elevated legs up the wall, shoulder, head or hand stand or forearm balances) for at least the first three days as it can disrupt the flow or regularity of your cycle.
Do you have Childminding?
Yes we do! For more info, click here
What do I do after class?
If you have hired a mat, please use the bacterial spray and sponge to wipe down your mat. Then neatly place your mat back along with any other props. We practise Karma Yoga, the yoga of service to others. By putting everything back neatly and how you found it, prepares the room for the next class. Please feel free to grab yourself a cup of tea and stay back and chat to your teacher and class participants in our second room.
