Yoga New Students Information

New Students

General Information & FAQs

New students are welcome to all my classes. Don’t worry if you’ve never practiced yoga before as everyone was once a beginner and there are always new pupils joining.

If you would like to speak to me about any issue around starting then please feel free to get in touch. If you’re not comfortable to begin in a group class or have personal requirements, you may like to consider having a private lesson instead.

Medical issues & recent injuries

If you have a recent medical issues or injuries, please let me know. Some problems are best addressed in a private lesson. You can always decide to join group classes once you feel confident and ready.
