- Please arrive at least 10 minutes before class. This allows for a smooth start to our class with minimal disruptions.
- BEFORE class, advise your teacher if you have any injuries, if you are pregnant, or if you have other medical conditions about which the teacher should be aware. Your teacher will provide appropriate modifications. However, you are responsible for your body. If a posture or movement doesn’t feel right, please don’t do it.
- Absolutely no use of technology during class. No mobile phones or cameras. If you wear a smart watch please ensure it is on silent and that the screen is in theatre mode.

Wear comfortable, fitted sports clothes. Yoga is done in bare feet.
What should I bring?
- Yoga Mat
- 1 – 2 Yoga blocks
- Yoga strap (optional)
- Bottle of water

Students should bring a yoga mat and if possible, 1 – 2 yoga blocks. Sanitised blocks are available for use at the studio however, we encourage everyone to bring and use their own equipment.

Where do I put my stuff?
For classes held at Waterfront Dance Studio, please leave personal items such as bags, mobile phones, shoes and coats in the changing room. Please avoid bringing personal items into the studio where class is held. As the changing room is connected to the studio, please ensure mobiles are placed on silent mode or turned off completely so they do not vibrate or ring.
For classes held at Turtle Dove Play Cafe, place personal items at the back of the room. Ensure mobiles are placed in silent mode or turned off completely so they do not vibrate or ring.
Is it ok to eat & drink before class?
If you need to eat shortly before class, keep it light to avoid discomfort during class. Be sure you are well hydrated before class and bring a bottle of water into the studio with you.
What if I’m pregnant?
Practicing yoga while pregnant is a great way to keep fit however, some postures can be dangerous during pregnancy. Please advise the teacher BEFORE class if you are pregnant so that you can be advised on appropriate modifications.
