Fear not, yoga newbie, we've all been there. Here's the lowdown...
What to wear
Something comfortable. Leggings, t-shirt, vest, shorts, something you can move in. Layers are also good for slower paced classes or for popping on during a relaxation session.
We have changing rooms with lockers in Streatham and pigeon holes for your belongings in Peckham. There's a shoes off policy in all yoga studio practice areas.
We have a range of yoga wear for men and women on reception if you would like to purchase something before or after class.
Is yoga for me?
I'm not very bendy
Unlike competitive sports and hobbies, yoga is non-judgmental - it's not about whether your neighbour can touch his toes or your best mate can stand on her head, it's a personal practice, just you and your mat, with the teacher there to guide you along the way.
Whatever you might think, yoga is for all shapes and sizes and it's never too late to take it up. Everyone is welcome.
We also have Beginners yoga classes and courses, especially for you.
What to bring
There are mats and yoga props provided but if you are coming to a dynamic class you may like to bring a towel or a bottle of water.
We have snacks and refreshments available to purchase, or feel free to help yourself to a complimentary cup of herbal tea, or filtered water.
We have showers at Yogarise Streatham but not at our Peckham studios.
We also sell yoga towels, mats, props and water bottles on reception if you wish to buy your own.
