Q: I don’t do regular exercise and am not flexible, can I still do yoga?
A: YES!! Please do yoga!! A journey has to start somewhere & yoga can meet you wherever you are in your health & fitness to take you to wherever you want to be. I have seen dramatic improvement in my own yoga & in those I’ve worked with through consistent practice and regular class attendance.
Q: I have an injury/health condition. Can I still do yoga?
A: In many cases yoga is a very positive activity for those with prior injuries or current conditions, but always ask your doctor for advice. I always encourage people to take things at their own pace and modify poses as needed and encourage you to speak with me if you have a concern or ongoing condition you feel I should know about, but please remember that I am not a medical doctor and I can only provide general advice about modifications. Every pose is an invitation, so always work within your own ability and remember yoga is here to support your health. If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
Q: Where can I get a yoga mat?
A: Yoga mats are everywhere nowadays, BUT I’ve become an affiliate of Ekotex, an Edinburgh based company committed to eco-friendly products. Enter PEGGY10 at checkout to receive your special student discount! Ask me about mats so you can choose the one that’s right for you (I’ve specially ordered a few for classes to try). Mat bags, blocks, blankets, meditations cushions, and luxurious bolsters are waiting for you! Visit: Ekotex
Q: Can I bring children to your classes?
A: My in-person classes are designed for adults. Yoga is time for you and your mat. We all love our families, but we also need dedicated self-care time. With new social distancing measures, it is understandable that people’s lives are more intertwined with their families, so I’ve created specific family yoga videos on YouTube. I do occasionally allow children to attend outdoor classes, as the environment is more informal, but please get in touch with me before attending with your child.
Q: Can I do yoga if I’m pregnant?
A: Yoga can be a great thing during pregnancy, but requires a particular type of practice, so I recommend attending one of my pregnancy yoga classes!
Q: What type of yoga do you teach?
A: I am trained in Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga as well as Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga and Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga. Each teacher brings their own voice and perspective to yoga and with respect to the origins and traditions of yoga, teach as a Western, 21st-Century woman. My hope is that my students experience the wellbeing yoga can bring to their whole selves, appreciate how their unique bodies move and gain a better sense of self-awareness. I like to think I keep class accessible and enjoyable, while still facilitating a space for deep work. Still wondering what on earth that means? Come to class, try a yoga video or audio meditation and find out!!
