FAQ


I’m Pregnant can I attend?

Here at Asha Yoga we believe pregnancy is part of life and should be included in all classes. Our instructors are trained in how to adapt each posture to make it accessible and safe for you and your precious cargo.

We require a medical release from your GP/OBGYN prior to commencement of any classes, and for Pilates classes new students from 18 weeks pregnant require a private 60min class prior to the first group Pilates class. All pre-natal students with a medical release can attend all yoga and meditation classes, please arrive 10min prior to class to talk with your teacher. Yoga, meditation and Pilates during pregnancy is a wonderful experience please contact us for more information about how we can cater for your individual needs.

I’ve never done yoga before where should I start?

Here at Asha Yoga, all classes are suitable for beginners. Classes that are easier to start with are the slower classes as they give your brain time to learn and apply the information. Try Yin for the slowest paced class, or a Slow Flow yoga class for more of a flowing style including strength and balance. Pilates is also a great place to start! Find a time that suits your schedule and let the teacher know any physical limitations you may have prior to class. They will modify the class to tailor to your strength and experience level. Private classes are available for anyone wanting some extra individual instruction. Want to learn the foundational posture prior to attending a group class?
