Kind words from students

“I’m new to yoga, I had never tried it before, but I needed something to escape the kids, stretch out and maybe relax.  I’m not the skinniest pair of Jeans in the shop gal or coordinated at all, but I braved up and was surprised.  I was made welcome, the class was quiet and relaxing, and even if you don’t get the hang of it you can go at your own pace.  After four weeks my husband and I notice a difference in my flexibility.  Yoga gives me the quiet relaxation I need and helps stretch out my back shoulders and neck.” Alex Schaap

New to Yoga or new to Nourished…
Trying something new can take us out of our comfort zone, but at Nourished Yoga you’ll be well cared for in our friendly and welcoming environment.  Below are some common questions we get asked, which may answer some of yours:

–  Do I need to be flexible to do Yoga?
Definitely Not.  Flexibility is not a requirement of Yoga, nor the aim.  Our classes cater for all levels of fitness and flexibility.  We work from a system of honouring and respecting where each person is at.

–  Do I need to book in or can I just turn up?
Booking is recommended as classes are often very busy and it will assure your place in class.  However you can drop in to any of our classes without prior notice and join us if there’s space. 

–  What should I bring?
Due to COVID restrictions please bring your own mat and towel or light blanket if possible. We do have some you can borrow to get your started. 

–  What should I wear?
It’s best to wear something comfortable that will allow you to move easily.  We practice Yoga barefoot, leaving our shoes, bags, keys and phones at reception.

–  I’ve heard I can’t eat before class, is this true?
If you haven’t fully digested your last meal, the movements we practice may make you feel uncomfortable.  We recommend not eating a large meal for 2 hours before class.  Light snacks in the time leading up to class should be fine.

– I’m recovering from an injury, can I do Yoga?
If you’re recovering from an injury, or being treated for a particular health concern, we advise you to get the go ahead to do Yoga from your health practitioner.  Please also talk to your teacher before class about any injuries or sensitivities you have.

– Is there any class etiquette I should be aware of?
It’s best to arrive 5 to 10 minutes before class begins, in order to get yourself set up and settled.  Mobile phones should be put onto silent, and left with your shoes and bags in our reception area.


If you have any other questions or concerns, we would love to hear from you.
