STUDIO FAQs

ABOUT OUR STUDIO

What should I bring?

At WEDOYOGA, we provide all mats and props free of charge. Your instructor will set up the room before you arrive with the props you will need for class. Additional props will be available should you need them on request.  

Some classes are more intense than others so you may wish to bring a towel to prevent slipping. Please help us keep mats clean by wiping your mat after use. Spray bottles and wiping cloths are provided.

We highly recommend keeping hydrated so drink plenty of water before and after class. You are welcome to bring a bottle of water into the yoga room with you as well. 

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable athletic clothes that allow you to move freely. No shoes can be worn inside of the yoga room. Karma points if you wear WEDOYOGA swag.

Are there changing rooms?

Yes! We have a changing room for students as well as for customers who would like to try on clothing. Please make sure you do not leave valuables or large bulky items in these communal areas. We have small lockers available to store your personal belongings such as car keys, mobile, etc. There are no showers available at the studio.

When should I show up?

The class timetable can be found here.

New students should arrive 15-20 minutes before their first class to fill in a health questionnaire and get a short tour of the facilities as well as answer any questions you may have.

We like all our students to benefit for the full duration of class and therefore we lock the door at the beginning of class and start on time. We ask that you arrive in good time before the class starts so that you can check-in at the front desk and have a moment to settle the mind before class begins.

The yoga room opens 5 minutes before class starts.

What if I leave something behind?

Students are responsible for their own belongings but if you do leave something behind it will be stored in ‘Lost & Found’.  We always strive to reunite items to their owners, but if they are left unclaimed for one month they will be given to a local charity.

Is the studio Hot Yoga?

All yoga is Hot Yoga when you're in class! Our studio is not a Hot Yoga studio but our rooms are set to a warm temperature. 

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes, we accept all major credit cards including American Express.

Do you accept cash?

Yes.

How do I  cancel or suspend my membership?

If you would like to cancel or suspend your membership, please speak with a member of staff at reception or the studio manager.

How do I cancel my class?

To cancel your class you must either do so online, in person, or over the phone, 4 hours or more before your class start time in order to free up the space for other yogis and return the spot to your account to be used at a different time. Please check our cancellation policy if you need to cancel after the 4-hour window.

ABOUT OUR CLASSES

Are classes open to all levels?

Yes, classes are open to all who would like to attend, but please be aware that they vary in intensity. Some of our classes will challenge your strength as we move dynamically and hold poses to build tone and focus the mind. You can check out the class description to see if it’s suitable for your needs. Our instructors will show you modifications and make adjustments when possible. As always, remember to practice within your own body and know your limitations. We believe yoga is about your own personal journey so do what is comfortable for you.

I’ve never done yoga before, does that matter?

We love beginners! Every person that shows up to class is on a journey and we’ve all started somewhere so welcome to the family.

What is the right class for a beginner?

All of our classes are open to everyone so feel free to check any of them out. If you’re completely new to yoga, you might want to try one of our Vibe + Flows or the Yoga Essentials class for a nice low-key introduction to the practice.

What is Happy Hour Yoga?

We like to make yoga accessible to everyone and we understand that sometimes the barrier is the price. Happy Hour yoga is our discounted class. You can enjoy one of our full classes for only £6! No other discounts can be applied to these classes.

What is Vinyasa Flow?

This is a style of yoga that links breath to movement and follows a set of postures created by the instructor. The set will vary depending on the theme of the class, the time of day, or the anatomical focus. Vinyasa Flow can be fast-paced or slow, but is always a more free-form expression of yoga where standing and seated postures can happen throughout the practice. 

What is an "Express" class?

These classes are 15 minutes shorter than our normal flow classes so that you can get your yoga fix a bit quicker and fit it in around your busy lifestyle. You’ll still reap the benefits of yoga, warm up your muscles properly, and  have your full relaxation sequence.

I want to sweat hard. What classes are best for me?

YASSSSS! We love a good sweat session on the mat. WEDOYOGA Flow and Slow Burn + Flow classes are for you. Check out some of our Vibe + Flow classes too because some are more intense than others. Remember to bring water and a towel!

I want to relax. What classes are best for me?

Flow + Restore, Yin Yoga and Mindful Sound Meditation classes will help you get your ‘OM’ on. We also love our restorative workshops so check the workshop calendar or check-in with the studio to find out what is coming up. 

Can I do yoga everyday?

If you already have an established and strong practice, we recommend 6 days a week for our signature WEDOYOGA classes and Slow Burn + Flow classes. Our classes focus on understanding and listening to the body so take as many days off as you need or practice as much as you want as long as you are mindfully practicing. Do it for your mind, body, and soul - not just for one of the elements. It’s important to give your muscles time to recover from the work of some of our harder classes. 

Are your classes suitable for pregnancy?

This is entirely dependent on the teacher and his/her knowledge of pregnancy yoga. We would request that anyone who is expecting to speak to their teacher in advance of signing up for the class. If you have never tried yoga before then we would recommend a class specified for prenatal students. 

I have an injury. Can I still practice?

You must have clearance from your doctor or general practitioner before coming to one of our classes. Once you have this, let your teacher know at the beginning of class about your injury and what has been advised. We will suggest modifications or omitting certain positions depending on your injury. Please make sure to update a member of staff at reception on any injuries, so your MindBody account can be updated

What is a savasana?

In sanskrit, savasana literally translates to ‘corpse pose’. It’s the last pose of a class and one of the most important because of its restorative and restful benefits.
