FAQ

What’s your cancellation policy?2019-03-20T14:03:17+00:00

For all group classes there is a 4 hour cancellation policy, and a strict no late-comers policy (no later than 5 min after the class start time unless previously discussed with the teacher).

For private sessions I operate a 48h cancellation policy. If you cancel before 48h you either reschedule the class if you have paid for a block, or get a credit.  If you cancel within 48 hours you will lose the credit for your private session. Worth taking a look at our terms and conditions.

If there is anything you are unsure about, please talk to us.

What if I have an injury or medical condition?2019-03-20T13:47:48+00:00

Please let me know of any injuries or medical conditions before the class starts. This is super important as it helps me know how to assist you, give you modifications and keep you safe. I reserve the right to ask you not to participate in a class if I feel that it would be inappropriate because of an injury or medical condition.

Do I need to bring anything?2019-03-20T13:46:20+00:00

Studios I teach in provide mats and other yoga props (bolsters, straps, blocks etc), but feel free to bring your own mat or a grip towel if you prefer. You might also want to bring a water bottle to keep hydrated.

Congratulations! Great news – the start of a very exciting journey. I teach Pregnancy Yoga classes. These are suitable to all from 13w of pregnancy. More info on Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga page.

Should I eat or drink before a class?2019-03-20T13:40:46+00:00

It’s best to practice on an empty stomach, so try to leave 1+ hour between meal and a class. Sipping water to keep hydrated is a good idea.

I’m ready to take my first class – what should I expect?2019-03-20T13:36:51+00:00

Please arrive at the studio about 5-10min before class time. Arriving early will also give you time to ask the teacher any questions you might have, and tell him/her about any injuries or physical conditions he/she should know about.

Is yoga a workout?2019-03-20T13:19:15+00:00

Although the focus in yoga is about balance, healing, and reconnecting, a regular practice will not only open your mind and offer you a fresh perspective on your life, but it also will absolutely change your body. Yoga is not an aerobic workout, it does burn calories as you create long lean muscles and cultivate flexibility and greater range of motion in the joints. The answer depends on the style of yoga you choose, as well as the frequency and intensity with which you practice.

Do you offer yoga in the workplace?2019-03-20T13:56:08+00:00

Yes, yoga at workplace classes are available. I want to promote yoga as a practice for living a happier, healthier life, a practice that is accessible to everyone. For more details go to Yoga in the Workplace page.  Or contact me at: jos@yogastateofmind.co.uk

Can I just turn up to a class?2019-03-20T14:01:55+00:00

Although some classes operate on a drop-in basis, booking is advisable as spaces are limited. I advise you to book no later than 8pm the night before the class. For cancellations see our section. To book a space to a class in advance go to page.

If you haven’t been before it is good to arrive 10-15 min before the class is due to start to introduce yourself and we can discuss any injuries or ongoing health conditions you might have and get settled before the class starts.

What should I wear to class?2019-03-20T13:38:47+00:00

I recommend wearing loose and comfortable clothing. Yoga is traditionally done barefoot, but you’re free to wear socks.

How often should I practise?2019-03-20T13:48:54+00:00

Traditionally, yoga is meant to be a daily practice. Yoga is amazing – even if you only practice for one hour a week, you will experience the benefits of the practice. Consistency is the key. The more you practice, the better you will feel, and the more you will want to practice.

Can I leave during a class?2019-03-20T13:49:57+00:00

In order to keep disruptions to a minimum, please plan to arrive 5-10 min before the class as we start on time,  and stay for the entire class. If for some reason you need to leave early, please let me know before the class starts.

What if I can’t do a pose?2019-03-20T13:34:56+00:00

Yoga is about baby steps, we must crawl before we can walk and walk before we can run. I stress the non-competitive nature of yoga and invite you to make the practice your own – honouring your body and doing what is best for you, not forcing yourself into a shape that you aren’t ready for.

I can’t touch my toes. Is yoga for me?2019-03-20T13:33:46+00:00

We all have the same struggles and worries, and though everyone comes in a different body, each of us has a path to travel to make it a more comfortable place to live. People come to yoga mindset with differing levels of experience, but there is room for everyone. We are ALL learning.

Can beginners attend classes?2019-03-20T13:28:46+00:00

Absolutely. We welcome you as you are, providing a space that nurtures and supports you on your yoga journey.

What does “Yoga” mean?2019-03-20T13:31:24+00:00

Yoga is a Sanskrit word that means “to yoke” or “to unite”. As a practice, it is a philosophical system for achieving total health, mental, and spiritual well-being – a means to unite the body, mind, and spirit.
