Gentle Beginnings Yoga and Wellness recognizes that each person and their body has its own history and story to tell.
We respect that story so please inform us of any medical concerns or restrictions before the start of each class.
Please inform us if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant.
Students are respected for their ability level, their dedication to their practice and the progress that each students makes within that practice.
So please take your time and enjoy the journey.
What do I need to bring?
All you need to bring is your bright smiling face and your enthusiasm. All equipment is provided by “Gentle Beginnings Yoga and Wellness” for in studio use. We use latex free mats, cork blocks, traditional straight straps, eye covers and eye pillows. Depending on the class we also provide, for in studio use, strap circles, strap slings, yoga balls, hand & ankle weights, alignment bars and 3Minute Eggs®.
What should I wear?
Fancy designer yoga clothes are not required or needed. All you need to wear is something comfortable, slightly loose fitting but not too loose and permits movement. Stretchy pants or shorts, depending on the season, and a t-shirt are perfect.
Should I eat before I come to class?
It is preferable to refrain from eating for at least 2-3 hours before you practice. However, you do not want to be focused on your hunger. So if you do require something a light snack of yoghurt or half a bagel or an energy bar should be fine. The studio sells bottled water.
Many students find it more comfortable to practice without wearing jewellery. Please remove any jewellery that may be an annoyance or inconvenience. To allow our minds to stay focused on the present moment, please remove your watch.
We are a scent free environment.
Please be mindful of your fellow students who may have sensitivities to fragrances and refrain from wearing perfume.
Please ensure that all electronic devices are turned off. Thank you.
There is ample parking in the driveway so please park there.
