FAQ - frequently asked questions

Why should I practice Hatha Yoga?

Hatha yoga is a form of yoga that focuses on physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation. It can help improve flexibility, strength, and balance, as well as reduce stress and anxiety.

Regular practice of Hatha yoga can also enhance concentration and focus, which can be beneficial in day to day life. Additionally, it promotes overall well-being and can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Group classes are fun and can help with building a sense of worth and being part of a community.

Ultimately, incorporating Hatha yoga into your life can contribute to both your physical and mental health.

I've never done yoga before.  What should I expect?

For one, a great friendly welcoming atmosphere!  I've never met a grumpy yogi yet.  So the others in the class will welcome you along. Yoga is very sociable.

Classes are 60 minutes long and generally consist of an opening warm up, standing poses / flow, slower floor based work and then a closing Shavasana.  Shavasana is form of relaxation at the end of a class.  We take this lying down on our back on the yoga mat.

Most yoga poses have a variety of options to make them less or more challenging and so in my classes you would simply take the option that suits you on the day. Everyone is on their own journey and there is no judgement as to what options you take!

How do I book a class?

When you click on the book a class link you will be taken off my website to another site / platform called Momoyoga. Momoyoga is a class booking app and you simply register yourself ( registration confirmation is required so check your spam folder! ) then pick the class you want to take part in. You will be asked to buy a product ( class pass ) and then allocate that to the class. Momoyoga also has Apple and Android apps so best use one of those if you can. 

Pre-booking and pre-payment is required to keep your spot.  Sorry, but I don't do cash at the door.

Single class drop in or a 6 class pass option is available to buy. If you take a 6 class pass you get 4 months to draw off the 6 classes.

What should I wear to class?

Both Yin and Yang yoga require you to move and stretch your body freely. Please wear whatever you are comfy in. Yoga pants, shorts, track suit bottoms are all good. T shirt, vest, etc are good on top. You'll find a look that suits you after a few classes.

For Yin, make sure you wear something warm as you are holding poses for 3 to 5 minutes and you are grounded on the mat.

If that all doesn't make sense to you then search "what to wear in a yoga class".

What should I bring to class?

A yoga mat is fine. There are various types and brands available and the only advice I would be tempted to give is to make sure you get a yoga mat and not a thick general activity mat.

As you get more into yoga may may choose to buy a selection of props.  Bricks, blocks, tiles, straps and bolster. And maybe an eye blind. Check out Ekotex. They are a local to me business based in Edinburgh.

Where are your classes?

I teach in person in Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy.  More details are here.

I also teach my Tuesday class live on Zoom. Complete starters should come to class for some lessons before attempting a zoom class though.

I have a question.  But it's not covered here..
