What to bring:
Unless other wise stated, just bring your beautiful selves, your smiles and an open mind. On a practical note, you do not need to wear special clothing, just suitable clothing for the environment the class is in. See below for further details and don’t be shy to contact me if you have any special requirements or questions.
Studio based classes:
- Please wear clothes you feel comfortable in. Although I will provide you with a mat, bolster, pillow and blanket, given you will lie down for most of the time (there are adaptive positions for those who cannot lie down) you may want to bring an extra layer to cover yourselves such as a favourite shawl or blanket and a small pillow.
- If you have your own preferred equipment or accessibility adapting equipment please bring them with you to make the class as comfortable as possible. The aim is to completely relax your body so that you can better relax your mind.
- Beach based activities: please wear clothing and footwear that you are happy to get wet and offer you protection from the sun as well as a towel and a change of clothes and shoes. Please make sure you are able to meet the fitness levels required for each class eg if it is sea based, you must be able to swim a minimum of 25 metres and float unaided.
- Land based activities: unless it is very warm, do bring extra layers as you will find that you may cool down at different intervals during the class. If it is very warm or hot, please bring sunscreen, a hat, mozzie spray and wear clothing that allows you to be comfortable and protected both in the sun and the shade. If we are hiking, please make sure that you are able to meet the physical demands of the class.
- Don’t forget to bring a bottle of water with you regardless and also wear comfortable, good grip shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy or wet.
- Classes go ahead whatever the weather as we practice embracing whatever nature brings, so dress accordingly!
Pool based classes:
- Please make sure you are comfortable being immersed in water and able to float in a pool for long periods of time as you will be (where appropriate in accessible- needs only classes) floating in water for the whole part of the meditation. You must be able to swim at least 20 metres without effort or stress. Equipment will be given to help you remain afloat for the duration of the meditation and class but you must comfortable with lying on your back and float unaided in order to participate.
- Please bring a swimming costume, towel and shower things and of course a change of clothes.
All classes are put together with your wellbeing and safety in mind. Classes are lovingly held according to the overall class ability and focus. Participation implies your agreement to the physical requirements of the class environment. You are the only person who knows your limits and abilities, therefore liability for your physical and emotional safety and wellbeing is your responsibility. Please do not book classes you know that you are not able to participate in safely and meet the minimum requirement level of fitness. If you have any concerns or queries please contact me prior to booking a class or workshop.
