Welcome to Yumi Yoga
General benefits of yoga
Along with the benefit of creating a stronger, more flexible physical body, a regular yoga practice can also help to enhance your breath awareness and bring harmony to the mind and body. Yoga can be used in daily life and help reduce distractions and increase focus and energy.
Many people come to yoga simply to get a good stretch or become fitter – which in itself is wonderful! But many people find that as their journey continues the more subtle benefits come into play. Every time you come to practice you’ll notice something new. That’s the beauty of yoga - every moment on the mat is a new beginning.
Can I drop in?
Most classes are available for drop-in, with the exception of our Yoga for Beginners, Baby Massage & Hypnobirthing courses which must be booked and paid for in advance. However, we do recommend that you contact us before your first class to ensure your place and discuss any needs you may have.
We have a small supply of mats, so please bring your own if you can. It is nicer to use your own if you are practising regularly. We do offer mats for sale at discounted rates - please contact us for details.
Yoga on a full stomach can be uncomfortable, so your last meal should preferably be around 2 hours before the start of class. (This does not apply to Pregnancy Yoga Classes)
What to wear
Anything that is comfortable and does not restrict movement or breathing. Yoga is practised barefoot, so please leave shoes in the reception area or by the door to the room.
Pregnancy / Contraindications
If you are pregnant and would like to join our beginners or mixed ability classes, please contact us before your first class. If you are a regular student and become pregnant, please advise the teacher as soon as possible for advice on continuing your practice or attending our Pregnancy Yoga class. Yoga is safe to practice from 12 weeks onwards, however we suggest you check with your doctor before starting / continuing your practice.
Please also advise the teacher if you have any injuries or illnesses, or have recently had a baby or an operation.
Please note all classes are non-refundable
Drop in Classes - Classes are non-refundable, however, you are able to transfer pre-booked drop-in classes using our online booking service up to 24 hour in advance of the class starting. Please contact us if you have any problems
Block Bookings - block booking discount is only applicable for Pregnancy Yoga Classes - your 6 classes must be pre booked within the 6 week time limit. Once booked, these classes are non-transferable and non-refundable.
Course Bookings (excluding hypnobirthing) - Unfortunately we are unable to give refunds on these bookings, but happy to discuss an alternative solution given at least 2 weeks notice prior to the course starting if you are no longer able to attend. Please contact us to discuss. If you are unable to make any of the classes once a course has started it is possible for someone else to take your place on these occassions - just let us know in advance.
Hypnobirthing Courses - Unfortunately, we are unable to transfer these bookings. However, your fee will be repaid in full if your baby arrives before the course starts or in the very unlikely event of the course being cancelled. These are the only circumstances under which a refund will be made.
Private Students - Please note our cancellation policy is as follows: We respectfully ask for classes to be paid for in advance and for at least 48 hours notice to be given for any cancellations or alternations to the booking, otherwise the full amount for that class will be charged.
We recommend all students to practise consciously - slowly and gently, without strain, adjusting day to day according to energy levels and not being concerned at all with what you can or cannot do. It is important to work at your own pace and not attempt any comparisons with your fellow students.
