Attending a Yoga Class

What to wear:

Loose comfortable clothing to allow you to move freely. No shoes, as yoga is practised in bare feet.

What to bring:

A mat and small towel. Mats are available for purchase.

Yoga should be practised on an empty stomach. Eat lightly and allow 2 hours after a snack. Eat a banana if you feel very hungry or have not had time to eat. Bananas are high in potassium, easily digested and a good source of energy. Drink sufficient water before a class, as it is not wise to drink during a class.

You will be asked to complete a health declaration form on registration.

It is essential that the following medical conditions be reported at registration:

• Heart disease or any heart problem
• Epilepsy including Petit Mal
• Cancer or benign tumours
• Diabetes
• Meniere’s disease
• Detached retina
• MS
• Or any recent operation.

Any minor ailment or recent injury should be notified to the teacher before class.
