Most Frequent Question

How often and for how long should I practise yoga?

Even if you practise for 1 hour a week, you will feel so much better. For some people that is enough. Others, because they feel so good with it, will naturally want to practise more. If you can, practise two to three times a week at least. Try to do an hour, or an hour and a half when you can. However, don't let unrealistic expectations stop you from practising 20 minutes, or even 10 minutes! So practise however much you can, when you can. Focus on, and be proud of what you do, rather than focusing on what you want to do.

Can I eat before yoga?

You want to have a more or less empty stomach during a yoga session, so leave at least two hours between a main meal and yoga. Digestion of food requires energy and when you do yoga after a meal, your energy goes to the muscles you’re exercising and the body can’t digest the food properly. It is not healthy and won’t feel good to practice yoga on a full stomach. I personally might have half a banana or a handful of nuts if I feel I’m too hungry to practise, to give me the fuel I need.

What are the benefits of yoga?

Yoga has many physical benefits: It creates a flexible, toned and strong body and it improves breathing, energy and metabolism. Yoga improves circulatory and cardiac health. It improves fitness levels, relieves pain and improves posture. Yoga also provides mental benefits: it makes you happier, more balanced and emotionally calmer. It helps you relax so you can handle stress better. Yoga encourages self-confidence and helps you to focus your energy. Yoga teaches you to be aware of what is going on inside and outside of you. Yoga teaches you to be present in your surroundings and open to what is all around! You will feel some benefits immediately, such as physically feeling tension release and the body opening and muscle strengthening - the ``feel good`` feeling that keeps people hooked on yoga. Other benefits depend on how much you practise and every person is different. But most people will feel a positive change after a few weeks, if not before.

Can I practise yoga when I am menstruating?

Some women prefer to stop practising yoga when they have their period while others keep going. Most teachers advise not to do inversions (Headstand, Handstand, Forearm Balances) which interrupt the downward flow. Strong twists can be uncomfortable as well. It really depends on the individual however so listen to what your body tells you! A slower, more restorative class might be more beneficial and pleasant for you. ``It really depends on the individual however so listen to what your body tells you!`` One of our teachers has designed a programme around your cycle. Yoga for Women helps to support you in all phases of your life. You mayavoid yoga during the first 2 days of your periods.

I have a medical problem. Can I still do yoga?

Many people practise yoga as a way to manage their health conditions. There are many different types of classes which suit different health needs and can also be adapted and modified for injuries. However, if you have medical condition or an injury, you should consult a medical practitioner before starting any exercise including yoga. We cannot offer medical advice. If you have a medical problem or injury and have not practised yoga before we recommend that you speak to yoga teacher (or a physical therapist with knowledge of yoga) to check your alignment in poses and to get advice about any poses or movements you need to avoid.

Can I do yoga while pregnant?

First of all, consult your doctor. You should consult a medical practitioner before attempting any exercise and particularly yoga, to ensure that you do not injure yourself. This is particularly important if you are pregnant. If you have never done yoga before, the general recommendation is to not start during the first three months of pregnancy, since your body isn’t used to it. If your body is used to doing yoga, however, you can continue. You also need to be aware that during pregnancy the body produces hormones (relaxin) which will make you more flexible especially in the hips and pelvis. Therefore you will need to work on maintaining stability in the joints more so that you do not overstretch them.
