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 Ashtanga [Modified Primary Series] classes, which run every day and build a strong foundation for those at the beginning of their journey. Another great way to begin is by coming to Rocket 1, which follows closely the Ashtanga sequence - building strength, flexibility and balance. We also recommend taking a Yin Yoga session with its gentle 3-5 minute poses, perfect for rejuvenation, increased somatic awareness and flexibility - emotionally, mentally and physically. 

 

Are The Rocket® routines only for advanced practitioners?

While the name "The Rocket" might suggest something really intense or advanced, the real reason behind the name is simply that these sequences tap you into your Inner Guide and make the practice accesible to all levels. In that way they are a Rocket in that they 'get you there faster'! Like all our classes, The Rocket is accessible and instructed to the students who are attending. If you are new to or returning to a physical practice, we might suggest waiting a few weeks before joining a Rocket 2 or 3. In this way your body has time to process and integrate the foundations set in the other sequences - of connecting breathe and movement, an open ended practice. Once the foundations are set, in a few weeks or so, you will feel more prepared in exploring the faster pace and the inclusion of more backbends, armbalances and inversions. Always remember, 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?

The majority of students coming to yoga don't start a yoga practice already being flexible or strong - rather these are things that come with a consistent practice. They are not at all a requirement to begin with and The It's Yoga system of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is designed for you to build these qualities. As facilitators who have taken and are on that journey to flexibility and strength, we will guide you through the sequences, offering modifications that will enable you to practice yoga without having to be super flexible or strong and simultaneously in a way that will increase those qualities. At It's Yoga we say that 3 months of regular practice (2-3 times a week) will result in you seeing a big change in your flexibility, strength and overall health.

 

What do I need to bring?mod offer

- Comfortable clothes: 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.

- Mats & Props: We provide mats, blocks, bolsters and blankets  and also offer free tea to everyone coming to It's Yoga.

 

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 of 18 classes per week! These offers, and especially the 2 months for £99 is a great and affordable way to experience how powerful and transformative a regular yoga practice can be. This way you can experiment with the different classes and see how it all fits into your daily life before continuing the journey further with a further membership or class pass.

I have an injury / health 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 take more time with you to go through certain techniques in more detail - including breathe, meditation and/or for physical alignment.

 

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 one to one class with our pregnancy specialist first so you can go over any modifications suitable for you. If you have never done yoga before, we recommend 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! We have a snug little changing room in the building that is located at the back of the studio next to the yoga shala.
