Yoga Questions?

What shall I wear?

Anything comfortable, such as a T-shirt and shorts or leggings. It is recommended however that you do Yoga in bare feet.

What about equipment?

IYSWK provides some equipment, although it is encouraged to purchase your own personal equipment within time

Can I have a meal before the class?

You can, but try to give a heavy meal about four hours to digest. Leave an hour for a light snack or drink

Will they all be younger than me?

Yoga is suitable for men and women of all ages, through regular practice both the circulatory and respiratory systems become healthier and the body is better prepared to fight of diseases.

I expect everyone else will be slim except me?

It does not matter what build you are; your muscles can stretch just the same. All shapes and sizes are to be found in yoga classes. The classes are not slimming clubs, but the postures do tone the muscles and help to condition the body generally, so you will feel healthier.

What about my bad back / stiff shoulders / arthritis / weak wrists etc.

All students fill in a confidential questionnaire at enrolment, where you can tell your teacher if there is anything you think he or she should know. All the poses can be modified for medical conditions and may help relieve them. If you are seeing a doctor regularly for a medical condition, ask his/her advice first.

Is Yoga always quiet and serious?

Brenda brings humour into her teaching and invites questions
