FAQs

Where are you?

To find the studio please see our find us page.

I’m a beginner, can I come to Yoga Kula?

Yes you can! See our beginners course page for more information.

Is yoga for men?

A yoga practice is of benefit to everyone! If you prefer a class to build strength come along to Ashtanga or Vinyasa Flow. If you are new to yoga we recommend taking one 6 week cycle of our beginners course so you feel confident with the basics before attending a regular class.

Can I book a class in advance?

Yes! It’s simple to book online via our website just find the class you want to attend and click “book this class”. You can set up a Kula profile with your own username and password which allows you quick access to your info. Or you can download the app “Mind Body” to your phone and search for Yoga Kula to book on classes via your mobile device.

How much time should I allow before class?

We suggest you arrive at least 10 minutes before class is due to start to sign in and settle in to the class. If you arrive late for class we won’t be able to let you in as it will disturb other students.

What if I have an injury or medical condition?

If your condition is chronic, you have suffered a serious injury or you have had recent surgery please check with your doctor before attending classes at Yoga Kula. Please inform your teacher of any injuries or medical conditions before the class starts – this is really important as it helps the teacher to modify the practice for you and keep you safe.

We reserve the right to ask you not to join the class if we feel it would be inappropriate due to your injury or medical condition.

Do you provide equipment?

Yes we do! We have mats, blocks, straps, blankets and bolsters at the studio which are provided free of charge excluding Hot Yoga classes for which you need to bring your own mat or rent one from us for £1.00. We have mats and non slip mat towels to purchase at the studio. We also have drinking water available.

What should I wear?

Wear clothes that you are comfortable to move around and stretch in. We practice barefoot and shoes and belongings are to be left outside of the main studio in the cloakroom/waiting area in reception. (The door to the studio is locked when a class is on for security).

How do I know which yoga is for me?

Take a look at our types of yoga page for full explanation of our yoga styles and levels.

If I buy a class pass can I extend if I cannot come along? 

Class pass expiration date may be adjusted only for medical reasons. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the studio at the time of injury or illness not when the student is ready to attend class again. A statement of injury or illness must be documented in writing by a physician before any adjustment to the membership is made. Class passes may not be extended to accommodate non-use, vacation and/or travel dates.  When we are closed for holidays we will extend all class passes.

I’m pregnant, can I come to class?

Women who are in their first trimester are advised not to practice yoga at all, if you decide to you do so at your own risk. We have tailored pregnancy classes for students in your second trimester. Pregnant students with an existing practice may wish to come along to regular classes but as they are not pregnancy classes, it’s at your own risk (some teachers are happy to offer pregnancy modifications so you can ask an individual teacher).
