Frequently Asked Questions
What style of yoga do you teach?
The broad style of yoga I teach is ‘hatha yoga’. Hatha yoga is the style of yoga that relates to physical body. Within Hatha yoga there are a number of different styles, of which I teach ‘vinyasa yoga’. Vinyasa yoga is a more dynamic, creative style of yoga. It typically incorporates yoga postures that flow with the breath. As this is an introductory course, proper attention will also be given to understanding the key aspects of each yoga posture.
How are the classes taught?
They are taught via ZOOM. You will need to download the ZOOM application for your personal computer or other mobile device. Full instructions for accessing the classes are provided when purchasing the course.
Where will the course be taught?
The course will be taught privately online through me.
How much does the course cost?
£99 which is paid at the start of the course for the 5 weeks.
When does the course start?
The 1st class starts on the 5th March, 2024.
How long is each class?
Each class is 45 minutes, designed to fit around your busy schedule. For the first class, allow for 15 minutes extra for everyone to introduce themselves and I explain more about the course.
What if I miss a class?
No problems. I will be recording each class so you will be able to catch up or revise following the class. This class builds on what is learnt in the previous weeks so if you miss a class, it is no problem.
Am I too old or stiff to start yoga?
Never! Yoga can be done by anyone at any age. It’s never too late to start yoga, even if you have aches and pains. Yoga is the perfect antidote to modern day living and can be enjoyed by everyone of any age. If you have any specific ailments, we can discuss those before the start of the course.
What if I don’t have a yoga mat?
A yoga mat definitely helps. I recommend that you get one that is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, and you may choose to go through one of my recommended Partners, Jade Yoga. Jade make yoga mats from natural rubber without synthetic products. Jade was the brand of my first yoga mat, and I definitely recommend it.
What if I have some experience of Yoga before?
That’s fine. Students who come to the course will benefit from revising or gaining a new perspective on yoga. As each yoga teacher brings his or her experience to the class, the course offers the perfect opportunity to learn something new about yoga, or particular yoga poses they haven’t been taught in detail before.
How many students are in each class?
To keep the class intimate and to maximise student experience, each class is limited to 12 participants only.
I have an injury, is it still ok to take the course?
Practising yoga with injuries with the right care and diligence is entirely normal. If you do have an injury, then please discuss this in advance with Scott.
I would like to speak to you before taking the course?
If you have any concerns (or injuries), please feel free to reach out to Scott (email@example.com) and we can schedule some time to discuss any issues or concerns you may have.
