Before/During Class

Avoid eating at least 2 hours before class as postures engage abdominal muscles and a full stomach can cause discomfort.

Please inform me before class if you have a physical injury, have had recent surgery or have a medical condition that could impact your ability to participate in the class. I will offer suitable modifications to suit individual body needs.

You may want to have some water to stay hydrated throughout the class.

Blood pressure can drop during relaxation at the end of class, which can leave you feeling cold, extra layers of clothing are advised.
