Yoga for Beginners

mod IYB2schedule

So you're considering beginning a yoga practice but don't know where to start or what to expect? 
Then It's Yoga is the place for you! Our classes are accessible to all levels - we always instruct to who's in the room and are here to answer any questions - big or small - that you might have as you embark on this fantastic new journey!

 

I have never done yoga before / haven't practiced for a long time. Which classes are suitable for me?

A good place to start are our Modified Primary Series [MPS] classes, which run every day and build a strong foundation for those at the beginning of their It's Yoga journey. Another great way to begin is by coming to Rocket Lunch, which is only 45 minutes long and gives you a flair for The Rocket without the need to make it through an entire 75 or 90 minute sequence. Yin Yoga, with its gentle 3-5 minute poses, is also a great place to begin to relax and breathe and build up a sense of embodied self-awareness. We also run regular workshops for those only just starting out!

 

Are The Rocket® routines only for advanced practitioners?

No! While the name "The Rocket" might suggest something really complicated or difficult, the real reason behind the name is simply that these sequences 'get you there faster'. Like all our classes, The Rocket is accessible and instructed to the students who are attending any particular class. While we would suggest waiting a few weeks before joining Rocket 2 and 3 if you have never done any yoga, this is only because of the faster pace and the inclusion of more backbends and armbalances. Do remember that there is never any pressure to do every pose and that we provide modifications for everything! So it's really about how comfortable you are with getting out of your comfort zone and the possibility of other people going upside down around you!

 

Do I need to be flexible/strong to do yoga?

Most people don't start a yoga practice already flexible or strong - these are things that come with a consistent practice but are not at all a requirement to begin! We will offer modifications for every pose and you will see a big change in your flexibility, strength and overall health after 3 months of a regular practice.

 

What do I need to bring?mod offer

The most important thing to bring is an open heart and mind! Comfortable clothes are also important but you don't have to wear clothes specifically designed for yoga - as long as they allow you to move with ease, it's all good. We provide mats, blocks, bolsters and straps and also offer free tea to everyone coming to It's Yoga and sell Treevitalise Birch Water. If you would like to bring your own water bottle, you can, but please leave any sugary drinks at home. If you would like to invest in your own mat or some more clothes suitable for a yoga practice, we have a great selection of eco-friendly products right here in the studio!

 

How much is a class?

If you are a first time student, we recommend one of our introductory offers, which give you either 2 weeks or 2 months of unlimited access to our full timetable! This way you can experiment with the type of classes and how often you are likely to come before committing to a membership or class pass.

I have an injury / medical condition. Can I practice yoga?

In most cases, yes - however, it is always a good idea to check with your doctor first, especially if your injury or condition is acute. Just let us know when you come in so the instructor is aware of your situation during the class. If you have any concerns, you are very welcome to come in or call us for a chat. It might also be a good idea to book in for a private session or two before coming to group classes so that we can show you any relevant modifications.

 

I am pregnant. Can I come to yoga classes?

Yoga is a wonderful practice for expectant mothers, and we will be running pregancy classes in the new year. If you have an existing yoga practice and have passed the famous 12 week mark, it is completely fine to come to any of our classes - but we do recommend that you book in for a private class first so we can go over any modifications suitable for you. If you have never done yoga before, we recommend waiting for our pregancy classes or coming to Yin Yoga, which is suitable for all. Always let the instructor know that you are pregnant and how many weeks - and again, if this is the first time you have practiced yoga or have any concerns, always check with your doctor or midwife first.

 

Can I get changed at It's Yoga?

Yes! Our changing room is there for just that purpose.
