After your first few classes you’ll wonder how you ever lived without Yoga! Deep Yoga is a place to play, stretch and sweat. Let go of how flexible or strong you think you could or should be… be kind to yourself and have fun!

I’m not Flexible, can I do Yoga?

Yes, is the simple and honest answer. Flexibility is a product of Yoga, not a prerequisite. We all start at the beginning. Be patient and compassionate – you’ll be amazed at how much your flexibility improves.

I’m new to Yoga, which class is best for me?

Our Level 1 classes are suitable for beginners and are a great place to start. We also regularly run beginners’ courses and workshops; keep an eye on our schedule and events page for more info. We also recommend trying some of our gentle classes: Yin, Restorative, Hatha and Meditation will ease you in, giving you a broader taste of Yoga and its benefits.

I have back pain/an injury. Can I do Yoga?

So many people turn to Yoga to find relief from pain or injury. Let the teacher know so they can offer you modifications or alternatives to poses. Take it slowly to help your body heal. Also try our restorative and yin classes and workshops, which are especially beneficial.

What do I need to bring to my first class?

All you need are comfy clothing and perhaps a towel. We have all the rest: mats, blocks and bolsters to borrow free of charge. Once in the studio, let the teacher know that it’s your first class and they will guide and assist you throughout.

I can’t do a certain pose, what do I do?

The first thing is don’t stress. Your teacher will provide instructions for how to modify poses, and it’s completely acceptable to skip a pose if it’s not working for you. You can rest in a basic pose known as Child’s Pose any time you need a break.
