How do I start?
Either sign up for a foundation course - an eight week course for complete beginners or come along to a beginners drop-in class. It is not necessary to do a foundation course before coming to beginners classes. You may wish to come to a drop-in class to get a taste of yoga.

How often should I attend a class?
How can I get there by public transport?
The No. 50 bus from the city centre passes the end of Park Road about 50m from the studio. This is a frequent service so you won't need to wait long for a bus. See Directions for location details.
Is there any car parking?
There is space for cars on the street and limited off-road parking in front of the Centre (including a space reserved for disabled drivers). Please be sensitive to the needs of our neighbours when parking and remember there is often space available in Augusta Road and Augusta Road East.
