If you are new to yoga, dance, tai chi, pilates or any of our classes then you may have questions before coming along and taking that first step. Here are our most popular queries. If you still have questions or comments then let us know by sending us on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

what if I need to cancel my course?

Let us know as soon as you can and we'll do our best to refund you what we can according to the timeframe.


how late can I join a class?

Up to 15 minutes after the start of most classes. However, please try to avoid arriving late as it does disrupt the class flow and you may miss important warm-up sequences or information. 


should i eat or drink before a class?

Try not to eat right before class. Certainly avoid eating a meal two hours prior to class. If you are hungry, then here are some examples of good food choices before class:

dry nuts, fresh fruit (non-citrus), banana bread, celery, dark chocolate, sushi, dried fruit, fruit smoothie, sports nutrition bar, milk or soya milk

With yoga classes, you are advised to drink water before and after class rather than during. For all other classes, drinking water during class is fine. 


I'm a beginner - is this class suitable?

Each class has a level assigned to it. Most are available to all, if a class is a higher level it will be categorised as 'continuers', 'intermediate' or 'advanced'. If you are not sure just ask one of us or give us a call on 01273 600010. 


Can I do yoga even though I'm not flexible?

Actually, yoga will increase your flexibility over time. Yoga is an individual practice, adaptable to fit your personal needs.


what do I do if I lose something at the centre?

Please take care of your belongings and remember to take everything home with you. We do have a lost property box in the changing rooms by the cubicles. If you have left something behind, ideally come in, otherwise call us and we'll check if we have it. We take no responsibility for personal property brought into the centre and are not responsible for any losses.

Please take your valuables (purse, wallet, mobile, keys) into the studio with you. You can leave your clothes in the changing rooms, but this is at your own risk. The centre does not take responsibility for any lost or stolen items.
