What's The Best Class To Start With
We recommend new clients to start with a 'Basics' class. This is a foundational class that takes it back to basics for all levels including first timers, older bodies, curvy bodies, and mamas-to-be. Be guided through a supportive, uncomplicated practice incorporating mostly stretchy seated postures with a focus on safe alignment, instruction and simple principals to build confidence and familiarity, whilst the more experienced students can refine the fundamentals of their alignment.In this class, we dial it way back for a slower pace to allow for questions and clear explanations of how and why we do this yoga thing.
Is it okay if I've never done yoga before
Yes, absolutely! Every class is inclusive and will offer variations for those stepping onto the mat for the first time. Our Yin Yoga classes are a great place to start. We also offer a 6 Week Beginners Course to broaden your yoga knowledge and create longevity and safety in the practice. Please let the teacher know you are new to yoga and always practice at your own pace. If you have any questions please feel free to pop in to the studio, give us a call, or shoot through an email.
Does it matter if I can't touch my toes?
We give all students 2 weeks to be able to do this before kicking you out (just kidding!). It's absolutely not necessary to be able to touch your toes and super important to remember that yoga isn't about that at all. We're more concerned with how yoga leaves you feeling rather than coming into a perfect pose. So if you can simply lay on a mat, you're part of our community.
What's the class cancellation and non-attendance policy?
Our Class Cancellation and Non-Attendance Policy is in place to ensure everyone has a chance to attend class. Nobody likes fees, however we feel this is only fair our classes can be fully booked and sometimes students miss out. If you have booked to attend a class and wish to cancel your attendance, you must process a cancellation through the Online Booking System. We will not accept cancellations by phone, email, social media or any other method other than by using the Online Booking System. If a Student cancels their class within (1) hour prior to the start (Late Cancel) or if Student is a No-Show, the following will take place: For Memberships, if you process two or more Late Cancel's or do not attend a class which your attendance is booked in two or more instances within a one (1) month period, we will apply a $10 penalty to your Membership account. Once you incur any penalty, your entitlement to book and attend any Classes is suspended until the penalty has been paid in full. For Class Passes, if you fail to attend a Class which your attendance is booked or Late Cancel at any time that Class will be forfeited and deducted from the number of Classes you are permitted to attend. For more information, please see Terms and Conditions.

When To Arrive
If it's your first time, please arrive15 minutes before class so you can settle in. We’ll help you check in at reception, get your equipment set up and give you a run down of how everything works. This is the time to chat to your instructor if you have any questions or injuries.
What If I'm Late for Class
Unfortunately we don't allow late entries for due to health, safety, security and as a courtesy to other students. We don't permit students to walk into the class late as missing the warm up can increase the risk of injury and disrupt other students. When our classes starts, the front door will be locked to protect all student belongings. We know life just kinda happens some days out of our control, so we recommend arriving 15 minutes prior to avoid being late for class.

What To Wear
Something comfortable that you can move in. This could be loose-fitted, tight-fitted, long, or short. If you are attending an active class, we recommend wearing something that you would wear on a jog on a warn day. If you are attending a slower paced classes, we recommend something loose-fitting, breathable and with a few more layers incase it gets cool.
If life gets in the way and cancellation is a must, please do so at least three (3) hours before your allocated class. A fee will incur within the three (3) hour window, or if you simply do not attend.
If you have a special circumstance, injury or ailment please let the instructor know before class begins. Even if you've let them know before, it's best to let them know how you're travelling on that particular day so they can offer you the most supportive environment possible.
No phones in the yoga room. Please ensure your phone is left in reception area and is either off or on silent with no vibration. Please do not bring your phone onto the mat with you. Allow your self this time to digitally detox.
