Need to knows
- Respect your limitations. Solomon Yogalates is a low risk exercise programme, but it's vital that all students stay aware of any potential physical limitations they may have to avoid injury during the practice. Avoid pushing yourself too hard and overdoing it, especially if you have restrictions that may affect your practice or are recovering from an injury.
Avoid eating a heavy meal before class. It is more beneficial to your practice if you leave at least an hour after eating before you practise Yogalates (a piece of fruit or a light snack should be fine).
It is important that we start and finish on time. Please build sufficient time into your day to adhere to this. Arriving late can be disruptive to the flow of the class, to the other students and to your own experience on the mat.
Bare feet is the preferred option on the mat, but warm socks are useful for relaxation at the end. It can get chilly so always come prepared!
Bring layers (such as a jumper or a blanket) for colder weather and relaxation at the end of class.
Students will need to provide their own yoga mat for the public group classes. All other equipment will be provided for you.
Mobile phones are not permitted in class. If you must bring your phone to class please make sure it is on silent or airplane mode. If you are on call and need your phone with you please have your device on vibrate and answer it once outside the room.
It's recommended not to wear strong perfume during class as this can be disruptive for yourself and others during the breathing exercises.
Wear comfortable, loose clothing which allows for movement, particularly in the hips and shoulders, e.g. a t-shirt and stretchy leggings. Avoid restrictive clothing.
- Stay hydrated with a bottle of water near you during class.
Any questions just pop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with you!
