Absolutely NOT. Everyone is welcomed to yoga, just as they are. This often means that you may be carrying niggling injuries, varying levels of fitness, flexibility and strength. The best thing you can do is to honour yourself, exactly where you are on any given day. Pushing beyond your limits is not generally recommended in yoga. However, there are times when the only way to grow and move forward is to give something a go. You need to become your best judge as to when the time is right.
There are also numerous levels of class that can be chosen if something is either too strong or too easy.
Not really, though you can easily do this via the Wellness Living 'Achieve' app or via the Wellness Living website.
Please arrive 15 minutes early to complete some paperwork. If you feel that you have any serious health concerns that yoga may impact upon, please see your doctor before your first session.
There are many things to consider, now that you are pregnant. There is no clear answer to this question - all cases must be considered individually. Always check in with your body and your baby to see what is right for you. As always, it may be helpful to check with your health care professional and follow their advice.
Here is a helpful checklist-
Please let your teacher know that you are pregnant before class so they can adjust postures accordingly.

Terms & Conditions
Your own yoga mat, if you have one. We supply and sell mats otherwise. A towel and water bottle is also recommended. In the winter months a light shawl or blanket can be useful for the relaxation. Feel free to bring a friend also and share the delight of yoga with them!
Yoga poses are designed to cleanse and detoxify your organs, muscles and nerves. For this reason it’s not a great idea to have a full stomach when you come to class. Ideally, try to avoid any substantial meals for 2 hours before practice. You can eat some fruit an hour or so before if necessary.
Loose comfortable clothing is recommended. In the warmer months you can easily practice in singlets and shorts. Fitted, stretchy yoga/gym clothes are wonderful as they allow for easier movements within flowing postures.YOga is practiced in bare feet.
Mobile phones should be completely turned off (not on silent) before entering the yoga room.
Perfumes - try to avoid wearing excessive fragrances as they can aggravate some people with allergies.
A competitive mindset - yoga is about your personal experience with you! While it can be inspiring to see what others are capable of doing, try to avoid comparing yourself or judging others.
Aim to arrive 5 – 10 minutes before class to give you time to settle in. If another class is in progress please respect them by maintaining a quiet atmosphere.
Once you have entered the yoga space please set up your mat in silence and either lie down in Savasana or sit quietly until the class begins.
