Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to book a class or can I just turn up?
The yoga classes operate on a drop-in basis and there is no need to book. If you haven’t been before it is good to arrive 10-15 mins before the class is due to start to introduce yourself to the teacher.

Will there be room in the class or do I need to book?
Classes vary, some are busier than others but currently there will be room in the class if you just turn up and we do not operate a booking system for classes. It is a good idea to turn up 10-15 mins before the class is due to start. Do let the teacher know if you are new to Yoga Point/yoga.
