Do I need to be young / flexible / thin / female to do yoga?
NO – I believe yoga is for everyone and all are welcome at Uckfield yoga irrespective of age, gender, size, shape or physical ability.
There are people from age 7 to 97 who practice and we all have different abilities but we begin where we are and try to learn something on our yoga journey.
What type of yoga is it?
It is hatha yoga using the body and breath to try and still the mind; I aim to teach authentic yoga incorporating many aspects of this vast and deep subject including asanas (postures), pranyama (breathing) and meditation so the effects can be experienced physically, mentally and emotionally.
Do I have to be a vegetarian, long haired hippy to do yoga?
Absolutely not, we all make our own lifestyle choices but anyone can come along to a yoga class even meat eating short haired capitalists!
What is the difference between yoga and pilates?
Yoga is a system for living a healthy, happy life and pilates is an exercise class for strengthening the core. Yoga has been around for 5000 years and incorporates physical, mental and emotional development through stretching, breathing and meditating; pilates has been around for 100 years and is about toning the body.
