BOOKINGS FOR ALL CLASSES HOWEVER IS ESSENTIAL

What should I wear to class?
  • Wear comfortable loose fitting or stretchy clothing allowing free breath and body movement.
  • Layers of clothing in cooler months will allow you to regulate your own body temperature. It is advisable to wear socks during relaxation in the cooler months.
  • Yoga is practiced in bare feet, so slip on shoes for ease of removal and putting back on are ideal
  • Long hair is best tied back to avoid distraction during class
Can I eat before class?
It is best to practice on an empty stomach so allow at least 1 1/2 hour to 2 hours after a meal before class. If for medical reasons you need to eat before class choose something light.
Do I need to bring anything with me?

During CoVid restrictions we ask that you bring along mostly your own equipment, if you don’t have any props e.g. Belt then using a neck tie or similar can be used.  
Our space is equipped with all the props needed for yoga,  however if you have your own mat please bring it with you. When using our mats we do ask at the end of the session that you wipe it over with the spray provided to maintain our high standard of cleanliness. We also suggest that you bring a towel or shawl to cover over the blanket / bolster when ever your face is making contact with either.

We do not sell non-slip sticky mats nor blocks and belts at the studio but they can be purchased from local retail Stores or by purchasing from Yoga supply companies such as EMP /
I Yoga Props or Yoga King.

What is the difference between Yoga and Pilates?
At first glance it may seem that yoga and Pilates are very similar. Joseph Pilates developed his techniques to strengthen the physical body with the emphasis on controlled, precise movements executed with complete focus to strength the core.

Yoga besides challenging our physical ability in asana (poses), yoga uses other techniques such as pranayama (breathing), visualization and meditation to balance all aspects of our lives. As well as improved flexibility, strength, balance and muscle tone, yoga practice is mentally and emotionally restorative and can help manage or prevent stress and tension.

Both Yoga and Pilates are great disciplines to include in your wellness regime and both are offered at Well & Good Pilates as well as other complementing services including Massage, Bowen Therapy.
