Frequently Asked Questions
What do I wear?
Wear clothes that you are comfortable in. They don't have to be yoga clothes, but a bit of stretch in the fabric helps when we move. I always make sure I have a few layers on so I can be comfortable when we are moving and when we are still. We practice bare footed, but I always keep my socks handy for the end of class!
What do I bring?
You will need to bring your own yoga mat and a beach towel. The towel can be used to make your yoga positions more comfortable and as another layer of warmth at the start and end of class. Feel free to bring a water bottle if you like.
Can I leave class early?
It is encouraged that everyone stays for the full class. This is so you can experience the full benefits of the practice and be respectful to your teacher and fellow students. If you have to leave early, please let your teacher know at the start of class.
What do I do when I arrive?
Take your shoes off and turn your mobile phone off or to silent. Let your teacher know of any injuries or pre-existing conditions. Set your mat out in the room and get comfortable. For some people that may be talking to fellow students or it could be lying quietly on your mat.
Can I join your class if I'm new to yoga?
Yes! My goal is for anyone, of any age or yoga experience, to feel welcome and comfortable. I don't focus on achieving an outward looking ideal through traditional yoga postures, but aim for you to connect to what's already within. My classes typically feature repetitive movements and easy to follow sequences, so that a stillness within your body and mind is encouraged.
How do I pay?
North Narrabeen public classes only accept cash at the door. Wednesday's Balanced Practice Yoga class passes can be purchased online at www.balancedpracticeyoga.com.
Private lesson fees will be invoiced.
Can I bring my child?
The North Narrabeen classes have been designed for the whole family. It can be extremely powerful to experience a yoga class together and take the shared learnings home. I suggest students be at least eight years old. They will need to be able to focus and remain quiet for an hour. For some children this could be younger, for some this could be older than eight. If you are unsure give me a call or take your first class alone and have a chat with me afterwards.
What COVID-19 precautions are you taking?
Yoga with Carly is a registered COVID safe business. All students need to bring their own mat and towel; social distancing is to be adhered to - mats are to be placed 1.5m apart; hand sanitiser is to be used on arrival; if you are sick, please don't attend class; scan the QR code at the door for tracing purposes, you will need the Service NSW app to do so.
