Should I eat/drink anything before Yoga?
I recommended refraining from eating for 2-3 hours before a class, but it’s a good idea to drink plenty of water right up until 30 mins before class. During class please refrain from drinking anything - yoga is traditionally practiced with a completely empty stomach.
What do I wear?
Anything comfortable and that you can move freely in.
I have an injury, is yoga for me?
Depending on the injury, yoga can be amazing for healing and restoring the body. Contact me directly before booking if you are concerned, I would be more than happy to have a chat about it.
How often do I need yoga?
Yoga is traditionally a daily self practice. This can sometimes be hard to find time to do, but I would recommend practicing at least 3 times a week to begin with. Regarding booking one to one sessions, I recommend booking at least 5 sessions at least once a week to begin with. It takes time for the mind and body to get used to new expressions and ways of moving, plus routine enhances self-discipline.
One on One sessions, do you do home visits or do I need to travel?
I am based in Bromley but can travel up to 30 mins to your house!
I am a beginner, are your retreats suitable?
Yes! We are suitable to anyone and everyone! We do not believe in limited yoga just to asana, there are many facets and the physical is only one! Please feel free to message us if you would like to answer anything more specific.
Is Ashtanga for beginners?
Ashtanga vinyasa is a dynamic practice and potentially not for the absolute beginner, however Humblebee ensure all classes are for all, with modifications for all poses. We believe it is a continuous journey, not a performance.
Do you provide equipment?
Retreats: Some venues provide mats/props, see individual retreats for information.
Schools: We do not provide yoga mats for children, as you can imagine 30+ yoga mats would be very challenging to travel around with us. School gym mats are more than suitable for classes or students can provide their own.
Corporate: Some mats can be provided. Message for info.
Are you all DBS Checked?
All our bees are currently basic DBS checked, however we are willing to renew at your request or provide an enhanced (at a percentage of cost)
