Welcome to your Dru Yoga practice


I am so excited to have you in class, I feel very honoured that you have chosen me to share this journey with you.
As your first-class approaches, you may like to reflect on the reasons you decided to join. Having a clear intention will help you look forward to each class and get real benefit from your practice.
Below you will find some information that might be useful to get ready for your first class.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns; know that I am always here for you.

  Your Safety is my Priority

In order to support you to practice safely, some of the practices need to be modified or not done at all if certain health issues are present.

Please complete this form as thoroughly as possible. All information will be handled with care and will be kept strictly confidential.

Health and Intentions Form

Get ready for your first class...

At the studio we have all the necessary equipment to make your practice an enjoyable experience, however, we recommend for safety reasons to bring your own mat and a towel to place on top of our equipment.

I thoroughly recommend bringing a water bottle to keep you hydrated, during class we make mindful pauses to drink water.

Mostly, I invite you to bring an open mind and an attitude of curiosity!

I suggest you wear comfortable workout clothes (not too loose or too tight) and bring different layers, as your body will warm up as the class progresses and cool down during relaxation (plus we all know Melbourne's weather) 

Avoid jeans, belts or excessive jewellery, they will restrict your movement and simply be a distraction.

Please avoid using perfume or cologne during class as the smell can affect others and their breathing.

To be clear and concise, yoga on a full stomach does not feel good!

I suggest you avoid eating a major meal before class. I know this is sometimes a challenge, particularly for an evening class that may fall during or after your typical dinner time. In this case, try to eat a hearty, late lunch, or simply have a light snack before class (like a piece of fruit, dried fruit, nuts, yogurt, etc.) to hold you over until after your yoga practice.

Studio

Please arrive 5 min before the class starts and make sure your mobile phone is on airplane mode before you enter the studio. 

Leave your shoes at the front door in the provided shoe rack. Bring your bag and any valuables with you into the studio.

Online

Our online session will open up 10 minutes before the official start. We can use this time to chat, connect with others,. discuss any specific concerns or requirements and it will give you time to settle. Try to turn off any distractions around your home, like mobile phones, TV or any other devices.

Keeping your camera on is completely a personal choice, some people prefer the privacy, some other prefer more guidance.

If your any reason you are running late, please let me know via SMS in advance so I can expect you and let you in to the session.

To make sure you keep the benefits of the class after you leave the room, I thoroughly recommend:

  • Give yourself some time after class before looking at your mobile phone again and for evening classes, if you can avoid it all together will be wonderful (I promise you it will be ok).

  • Reflect and journal on any insights from your practice

  • After an evening class, eat lightly so your stomach is not full when you go to bed

  • Drink warm water or a herbal tea

  • Make the intention to sleep early that night

  • If you need to do things around the house that can’t wait for the next day, try practising meditation or deep breathing before bed
