Yoga and extra support Please inform the teacher before the yoga class begins of any special health conditions or injuries you may have. Classes can be modified to suit many health conditions. Some health conditions may be best addressed in a private yoga lesson.
Helpful information Do I need to book? All classes are available to come along to without booking unless they state otherwise in the class listing (only a few are fully booked). Letting the teacher know you are coming can be helpful, especially if you have any health concerns so you can have a quick chat first.
When should I arrive? Please aim to arrive 5-10 minutes before the start of the class, especially if it is your first class. For newcomers there is a quick health form to fill in.

Please talk to your teacher about arranging this. Most classes are available for you to make up a missed class but not all. Any missed classes must be made up in the same term, sorry we don't carry over missed classes to the next term.
