FAQ & What to Bring
Q. What do I wear for Yoga practice?
A. Any modern sporting or dance attire is suitable. Leggings and sports bra or fitted shirt for ladies and for the fellows, shorts, running tights or track pants, and a singlet or T-shirt is suitable.
Q. What do I wear for Meditation?
A. We don’t need to change clothes to practice Meditation. We just remove our shoes and sit on a chair, stool or cushion. Ladies who are wearing a skirt or a dress also find a Meditation stool or cushion comfortable and decent.
Q. How long before Yoga or Meditation practice can I eat and drink?
A. Try to avoid eating food less than 3 hrs before you intend to practice. Try to reduce drinking inside 30 minutes before you practice. Food will make you feel sick and impair your performance. Our Yoga style is not sweaty and you will not need to drink during practice If you eat too much food before Meditation you will tend to feel sleepy, so avoid it. Have something later.
Q. I’m new to Yoga & Meditation; how do I start?
A. Malcolm will start you at the beginning. He has introduced thousands of beginners to Yoga. You’ll be given personal attention in every posture & discipline you undertake. If you want to get a real benefit from Yoga and Meditation disciplines it is important to make a commitment and ideally for 3 to 6 months at the outset. Less time than 3 months will not give you any real insight into your capacities and the benefits of the disciplines.
For Meditation, you are encouraged to begin with our Beginners Course in Meditation – essential for coping with modern day stress – if you would like a more personalised, thorough and successful orientation. The Course is not expensive in terms of what you are offered. You can also learn with Malcolm via Skype
Q. As a lady, can I practice Yoga when I have my monthly period?
A. Most ladies feel it best to refrain from physical practice, and let go for the first three days of the monthly period. If you wish to take tuition, it’s a nice time to try Meditation, if you feel like it, or to just relax. If you do decide to practice it’s worthwhile to refrain from physical body inversions (postures where the abdomen is above the head) for the time of period.
