Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of yoga?

Yoga has many forms, there are broad similarities between them but they are all slightly different.  You may have heard of Ashtanga, Hatha, Yin, Iyengar etc.  They are all different forms.  Specific forms will be advertised in the classes section but I will always teach in a way that is accessible for you.

Where do you teach?

I teach around Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and Berkshire but I am primarily based in Andover in Hampshire.

Can you recommend a yoga mat/belt/blocks?

Personally I work with Manduka Yoga products which I think are fantastic.  If you use discount code DODAYOGA on their website you will get 10% discount as well!

 

 

 

Do I have to book?

We strongly recommend booking to guarantee a space on a class, however you are able to pay by card at the class subject to availability.

What is a sound bath?

A sound bath is a self-guided meditation aided by soothing sounds from a number of deeply melodic instruments.  This could include crystal singing bowls, symphonic gongs, wind chimes, rain sticks and other percussion instruments.  There is no movement, you are free to lay down in any comfortable position, but we do recommend lying on your back to absorb the vibrations fully through your body and your ears.

What do I need to bring with me?

A yoga mat, a bottle of water, a dollop of enthusiasm and a sense of humour!  Yoga blocks and a strap will be helpful to develop to more difficult postures but are not required for your first few classes.  For a sound bath, a comfy pillow, blanket and thicker mat will be nice.  It is also recommended to wear loose clothing for a sound bath. If you're coming to your first class it would be handy to print out our disclaimer, fill it in and bring it along.

I'm not very fit.  Is that ok?

Do not worry.  Yoga can be as easy or as tough as you want to make it.  Join a session and decide if it is for you afterwards.  If you have any specific concerns, feel free to get in touch!

I have a back/shoulder/leg/etc. injury - can yoga help?

If you have an injury this should be checked by a medical professional.  Yoga is not a substitute for professional medicine.  With the correct medical advice in place, yoga can strengthen certain areas in order to prevent injury.  Our disclaimer can be found here.
