Q: When will classes begin again?
A: I am currently taking time to prepare for and get to know my new baby. I intend to restart classes when I am ready and will update my website and social media pages when classes in Kinghorn, Burntisland, Aberdour and Dalgety Bay are ready to begin.
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. You will be asked to fill out a welcome form via the booking system that has space for you to detail any injuries/conditions you are experiencing. I always encourage people to take things at their own pace and modify poses as needed, 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.
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. I am currently developing a programme to support your pregnancy journey and beyond. Check back for further information as this exciting new aspect of my teaching develops and do be in touch if you’d be interested to find out more!
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 – feet on the ground, but head in the clouds. Still wondering what on earth that means? Come to class, try a yoga video or audio meditation and find out!!
