Q – I am a complete beginner/very unfit/can not touch my toes, are your classes suitable for me?

A – Most definitely. I strive to make my classes accessible to all levels. You are encouraged to work within your current capabilities and level of fitness. I strongly discourage competitiveness. Yoga teaches us to listen to our own bodies and do what is right for US.

Q – I have an injury/illness/condition, is it safe for me to join your classes?

– If you have health concerns you should speak to your G.P. in the first instance to get a diagnosis and a recommendation on whether Yoga is advisable. In most cases, Yoga is suitable or even recommended, but best checking with a medical professional.

Q – Do I have to book online? Can I just drop in?

A – I limit the number of practitioners per class so as to provide a good experience. This means that the classes fill up quite quickly, so it is best to book. You can easily check availability as the online booking system will not allow overbooking and full classes show up greyed out.

Q – What should I wear? Do I need a mat? Any other equipment?

A – Wear something comfortable that you can freely move in. I provide mats, blocks and blankets (for relaxation) but you are more than welcome to bring your own. Some also like to bring some water.

Q – How long are the regular classes? 

A – They are 1 hour and 15 minutes long.

Q – What style of Yoga do you teach?

A – My classes draw from various Hatha Yoga traditions such as Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow and Sivananda. The practice emphasises proper breathing and the exercise routine consists of individual asanas  (postures) and sequences such as the Surya Namaskara, or “salute to the sun”, which consists of several asanas performed as a fluid movement sequence.

Q – How much do your classes cost?

A – The pay as you go price is £9 per class. I offer multi-class passes online – 4 classes for £30 or 6 classes for £42. These are not “blocks”, the passes can be used at all my regular Troon and Prestwick classes and the classes don’t have to be taken consecutively as the passes have no expiry.Events and course are priced separately.

Q – What is your cancellation and refunds policy?

A – You can find the terms and conditions here.

Q – Bummer! I would love to attend but can’t afford your classes!

A – Although I obviously need to make a living I really don’t want money to be what is stopping anyone from practicing Yoga. Speak to me, I offer concessions and I am sure we can work something out, even on a zero budget.

Q – Where are your classes held?

A – In Prestwick the classes are at the Sheila Dickson Yoga Studio. It is directly above the Bank of Scotland, at The Cross. The entrance is from Station Road. In Troon classes are in the Moray Hall of St. Meddan’s Church, in Church Street.
