yoga FAQ

If you’re new to yoga, it’s best to start with a beginner’s class. This will give you a chance to learn the basics of yoga and build your strength and flexibility. There are many different types of yoga, so you can find one that’s a good fit for your interests and fitness level. Some popular types of yoga for beginners include:

Hatha yoga: This is a general term for any type of yoga that focuses on physical postures.
Vinyasa yoga: This type of yoga links breath with movement.
Iyengar yoga: This type of yoga focuses on precise alignment and uses props to help students achieve the poses.
Yin yoga: This type of yoga focuses on holding postures for longer periods of time.

It’s recommended to practice yoga at least three times per week. However, even practicing once or twice per week can be beneficial. If you’re new to yoga, it’s best to start with one or two classes per week and gradually increase the frequency of your practice as you become more comfortable.

If you’re not sure what to do in a yoga class, simply follow the instructor’s lead. The instructor will demonstrate each pose and give instructions on how to do it. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask the instructor.

Don’t worry, you are in safe hands – thousands of people have taken their first ever yoga class with triyoga. A beginner’s course is a great option if you are a complete beginner, as it gives you a sturdy foundation in which to explore any Level 1 or Open Level class with confidence. But if a course doesn’t suit you, any Level 1 Class will be suitable for you. View all Level 1 Classes for the next 7 days here.

Yoga and Pilates are excellent during pregnancy and for you and baby after the birth. However it is recommended that you do not practice yoga or Pilates in your first trimester. You can return to practice in your second and third trimesters, where yoga and Pilates are both fantastic supports. Find out more about our pre and postnatal classes and treatments.

Yes. If you’re inflexible you’re a perfect candidate for yoga. Yoga enhances flexibility; it’s not a prerequisite. So if like many of us, you’ve got tight shoulders, hamstrings, hips, quads…yoga will really help.

The wonderful thing about yoga, is that you can never be ‘too old’ to start or practice. Yoga and Pilates are practices for life, and they can be modified to suit all ages, and levels of strength and fitness. At triyoga we offer classes for all ages, from babies and kids through to adults. If you’re new to yoga the best way to start is with a beginner’s course or with a level 1 class. For an even gentler experience you may want to try Yoga Gently or Restorative Yoga.

Some people wear baggy, loose fitting bottoms and a t-shirt. Other people wear tight stretchy leggings and tops. The only thing that matters is that you wear comfortable clothes that you can easily move and stretch in.

As you move through a class you can get warm so it’s good to wear clothes that keep you cool, but bring a jumper for relaxation, when the body rapidly cools down. Some people also bring socks for the relaxation phase.

In triyoga hot, dynamic and ashtanga classes you will get sweaty and some people like to bring a small towel to class.

We provide mats and all other equipment you may need at all our centres. We also regularly clean our mats and equipment. If you would like to purchase your own mat we sell a varied selection in our shops at each centre.

If you are a new to triyoga and have not already registered for an account, please arrive 20 minutes early for your first session to allow time for registration.

If you are a regular student and have booked classes online, we ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes before the class starts so you have plenty of time to sign-in and get settled. Otherwise, for busy classes, if you have booked but not shown up 5 minutes before the class, we might need to allocate your spot to our wait list. If you need to cancel your booking, please do so at least 3 hours before the class otherwise our late cancellation policy will apply.

We realise lateness is often unavoidable but to avoid disruption, we cannot allow latecomers into class 10 minutes after it has started. For hot classes, we cannot allow anybody into the room once it has started due to the importance of the warm up postures.

Yes, there is a triyoga studio etiquette guide. This is on display in all our centres and you can read the full triyoga etiquette guide here.

From drop-ins and class passes, to unlimited options, there are a number of pricing options at triyoga. Find all you need to know about our prices here.

We understand that cancellations are sometimes unavoidable – but cancelling late or not attending at all often stops other students from booking places in that class. Click here to view our cancellation policy. 

The aim of our cancellation policy aim is to improve the triyoga experience for everyone and make it easier for all students to be able to attend the classes they want to.
