Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to book a class or can I just turn up?
The classes operate on a drop-in basis. There is no need to book regular classes (all classes except workshops), just turn up. 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.
What should I wear?
Wear something comfortable. Yoga is practised in bare feet and most people wear leggings/shorts and a t-shirt/top. We have male and female changing rooms but no showers.
I am a complete beginner can I just come along and try a class?
Yes you can attend any of the classes that say ‘Beginners’ or ‘All welcome’. There is no need to book.
