Do I have to book to attend a Yoga class?
No. Check our Yoga class timetable and decide which class you would like to attend. Arrive 10 to 15 minutes before start time to allow enough time to organise payment of your class or term fee with your Yoga Teacher, and to settle yourself on your mat before the class begins.

What does my term fee cover?
Once you pay your 12-week term fee you can attend as many classes (day or night) as you wish during that term.

I’ve been to several Beginner Classes, is it okay to attend a General level class?
You are welcome to try any class. You may find it advantageous however to stay with the Beginner Classes until you become familiar with as many asanas (postures) as possible.

Is the centre open on Public Holidays?
