WHAT IS YOGA?
Where do we start? Yoga can mean many things to many people. But it’s not always what you think it is. There are many health benefits and we hate to say it but you can be any shape or size, tall, short, stiff, flexible, non-veggie, meat-loving individual who may want to feel a bit better about themselves, be happier, appease the back pain, leg pain, whatever pain, crave some me-time, and you don’t have to indulge in a bit of om.
In fact you could also be a male who wants to take care of themselves a bit more. Shock. Horror. Huh?
WHICH CLASS IS FOR ME?
We offer a number of different styles of yoga so you’ll definitely find one to suit you. And we offer weekly classes where you can drop in when it suits you or structured six week courses if that’s how you prefer to learn. There’s really no excuse to not come along and enjoy yourself.
WHAT DO I NEED?
It’s simple – wear clothing that’s clean and comfy – a pair of stretchy trousers, leggings or shorts and a t-shirt that’s not too baggy. No special footwear is needed as you’ll be barefoot of course. If you have a mat bring it along, otherwise we’ve got a few to borrow in class, just to get you started. You might sweat, especially in the Ashtanga classes, so drink plenty of water beforehand and maybe even bring a small towel.

WHAT DO I DO NOW?
Book into class! The only way to reap the many rewards of yoga is to dive right in – your first class might be a little bit scary, but you’ll very quickly find your way about the studio, become more familiar with some of the postures and techniques and maybe even get to know some of your fellow students too. Our yoga classes in Glasgow city centre means we’re rather handy for you too.
