Restoration Yard Parking charges

New to yoga?
Don’t worry! We were all new to yoga once and what a brilliant journey it is! Classes are suitable for complete beginners. While you will not know the postures or their names, just go with the flow and have fun! After the first class it gets much easier as your body remembers postures; you’ll be amazed at the difference you see in yourself in just a few weeks!
Not very flexible?
Don’t worry. Yoga is suitable for people of all ages and abilities – no matter how flexible you are or aren’t! Within just a few weeks of practice you will be amazed at the improvement in your body.
What is yoga?
In short, yoga is so many things; you make it what you want it to be. In a class, you can expect the practice of asanas (postures) combined with pranayama (breathing). Practising yoga can help to still your mind and balance your body.
What do I need to bring?
Bring yourself and a bottle of water. The Wellbeing Lab has mats, blocks and blankets you can help yourself to. Of course, if you want to bring your own mat or props then please do!
What should I wear?
You should wear comfortable, breathable clothing. You will be moving and stretching, so loose clothing is recommended. Yoga is generally practised barefoot; but if you prefer to wear something on your feet then non-slip socks are essential. We also recommend you bring a jumper or blanket for the time of relaxation.
Can I eat before a class?
I recommend you avoid a large meal at least two hours before a class so it has time to digest. If you’re hungry before a class, a small snack is ideal.
How do I book?
Select the class you wish to book. If the class is bookable on this site then select your date and proceed though the steps where payment is taken at the end. Some classes are booked directly with the Restoration Yard and you will be directed there.
Do I book a class or a block?
If you choose to pay as you go a single class is £10 in-person, £6 online. You can book a block for £34 for 4 classes. There are no blocks available for online classes.
