What do I need to know for my first class?
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your first class begins so you’ll have time to familiarise yourself with the studio, fill out a registration form and meet your teacher. We provide mats, props & a filtered tap, so bring a towel, drink bottle, and sense of adventure. No mobile phones during classes (please be respectful to others).
What class should I start with?
If you are brand new to yoga, we recommend starting with at least a few Level 1 Vinyasa classes, which move at a slower pace, cover the foundations of alignment in the body for safety, and teach mindful breath awareness. Once you feel up for a challenge, feel free to join our Level 2 or Level 3 Vinyasa classes. We always welcome our students to modify for how they’re feeling on the day, so jump on in for any class but take a rest whenever you need. Yin classes, with long restorative holds, are also open to all levels.
I have never done yoga before, can I go to a group class or should I do a private session first?
Most new students feel alright attending a Level 1 Vinyasa or Yin classes, as you’re welcome to modify poses to suit how you’re feeling on the day. There is something in each pose for everyone, and you do not need to be flexible or strong to practice yoga. If you are pregnant, have chronic pain or are coming back from an injury, a one-on-one session might be best to assess your situation. Always communicate injuries or concerns with your teacher. We do, however, reserve the right to restrict clients to a particular class type for safety reasons if necessary.
What are the benefits to a heated room?
Our studio uses Far Infrared (FIR) heating panels and continuous ventilation to balance the heat with fresh air so you feel energised rather than depleted. The heat aids in warming up the muscles and joints and increases synovial fluid to lubricate the body, creating more mobility in the muscles and joints to safely deepen your practice and detox your body.
What should I wear to class?
Vinyasa yoga involves a lot of movement, so wear something to feel comfortable and allow mobility. You will most likely sweat, so wear something breathable and moisture-wicking. Yin yoga is more mellow, so feel free to wear something comfortable that allows movement and ease for long holds. We recommend gym tights, leggings or shorts and either a t-shirt or singlet top.
What facilities do you offer?
For your convenience, we offer studio mats, blocks and bolsters. For 2020 health protocols, if you are coming for yin and want to use a bolster, please bring a large towel to cover. We have sanitiser for your use at entry to the reception and the studio, as your health is our utmost priority. We offer a filtered water tap, changing rooms with showers on site, and towels are available to hire for a small fee.
Do I need to book online before I go?
As of late-2020, restrictions limit class capacity, so bookings are essential. We recommend booking via our app or website. If you’re on a class waitlist, you’ll be notified via email if a space becomes available, and you can check the app to see where you are on the list. Please ensure you’ve allowed notifications in your profile and that your contact details are updated.
How do memberships work?
In addition to class packs, we have Weekly, Monthly or Yearly direct debit memberships and the option for a one-off prepaid Monthly Unlimited Pass. There are NO lock-in contracts, minimum terms, or cancellation fees. You can suspend or cancel at any time, we simply ask that you email to let us know at least a week in advance so we can arrange it for you. Your membership will automatically renew for subsequent weeks, months, or years until written notice is received.
Can I suspend or extend my class pack?
We do not allow suspensions or extensions on your Introductory Offer (14 days) or session packs (12 months) unless you are injured, in which case we will ask for a medical certificate from your doctor. Please be aware when purchasing your Introductory Offer or session packs that you will be required to use your pass within 14 days or 12 months, respectively. Any unused sessions will expire.
How many people are in a typical class?
Ask any of our students the best part about (Here) Yoga, and they always say it’s the space. Our light-filled Malvern studio can hold up to a maximum of 50 clients per class comfortably, which means you always have space to find your flow without bumping into your neighbour. We respect and observe all government health protocols, and will update our class capacities accordingly.
I’m running late, can I still join the class?
For the security of the students, we lock the doors and turn off the door buzzer during class. Ensure that you give yourself time for parking and delays so you can arrive before the scheduled class start time.
I’m pregnant or injured. Can I still attend (Here) Yoga classes?
Each person is different, and we request that you are cleared by your doctor before attending class. We recommend getting the advice of your GP or Obstetrician, as heated classes might not suitable based on your individual medical history. Always advise your teacher of your injuries or pregnancy prior to the class and listen to your body. A medical certificate from your doctor might be necessary before you can attend.
How long after birth can I come back to attend (Here) Yoga classes?
We ask that you wait until you receive the all clear from your 6 week GP/Obstetrician check up to make sure that everything is healing well and there are no diastasis recti abdominal separation issues. Always start with Level 1 Vinyasa or Yin class after pregnancy and allow yourself time to get back into routine after such a big change. As always, please modify as necessary based on how you feel on the day.
