What To Bring

Yoga

All equipment is required for classes.  Due to hygiene reasons, we cannot lend out items.  Please source this before your first class.  If you have left it until the last minute, call Deborah on 07539600640 as there may be some stocks left over available to purchase.  Here is what you will be required to own and you will be informed the day before class about what to bring each week for that specific lesson to avoid you having to carry it all to class.  You will not get the full benefit from the class if you don’t have the equipment and unfortunately due to COVID restrictions we are no longer able to lend any out in class.

  1. Class takes place on a cold floor.  Due to the age of our participants we do not recommend a THIN mat as your joints will not appreciate it.  Any kind of thicker mat or blanket will be suitable.
  2. A Yoga Block
  3. A Yoga Brick
  4. A Yoga Strap (Metal D ring type, not plastic buckle type)
  5. A fluffy blanket to cover you in relaxation
  6. A small cushion for under your head if it needs a little support in lying poses
  7. Sanitiser Spray and Wipes
  8. A plastic box to carry it all in. We do not recommend a bag at this time since it is difficult to easily sanitise after class
