Pregnancy Yoga – Class Info & FAQs
Thank you for your interest in my pregnancy yoga classes and congratulations on your pregnancy! I look forward to having you in class and teaching you tools that you will find helpful throughout your pregnancy, baby’s birth ad beyond.
Please find following some information about the classes and answers to some frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
Thanks! I look forward to having you in class.
Where are the classes held?
I teach classes from my home studio in Grey Lynn. It is a friendly relaxed environment with a maximum number of five women in each class. The address is:
6 Prime Road,
Grey Lynn 1021
When can I start pregnancy yoga?
We recommend that you start your classes any time from 14 weeks – the earlier the better!
I’ve never done any yoga before – is this OK?
Absolutely! No yoga experience is necessary to start your classes. In fact, it is quite common for our pregnancy students to have little or no previous experience. The exercises are kept very simple and accessible with adjustments being given wherever necessary.
Course Fees - Payment Details
The fee for each five-week program is $100.00.
When signing up for the first time in one of my pregnancy programs, payment is required to reserve your place in the class and can be made online to the following bank account:
B. I. Coley – Svastha Yoga
Ref: Your name
Missed classes policy.
When booking into my pregnancy program, you are booking in for the entire 5-week program, classes may not be attended on a casual basis.
If you know in advance that you will have to miss a class, I am happy to adjust the program cost for the class you are unable to attend.
Please note – this is for a maximum of one class per program and must be arranged prior to the commencement of the program.
There are no refunds or class transfers once the program has started.
Can I start part way through a program?
Generally, our classes are booked in advance for the entire program. However, if you have missed the start and want to get started straight away, you are welcome to join part way through, provided we have space available. The fee will be adjusted to reflect the late start and will revert to the usual fee for subsequent programs you attend. Please note, casual attendance is only available for women who have been attending regular classes with Barbara throughout their pregnancy and are nearing their big day.
What about booking for the next program?
If you are currently attending a class, you will have the first option to book for the next program. Barbara will ask you a week before the end of the current program if you want to continue, and your space will be reserved.
Payment for the next program is due at least 2 business days before the next course is due to start. I understand this may not always be convenient, so if there is an issue with paying on time, please speak with me so that I can accommodate you.
Having small classes means that I often have a wait list for the class, if payment isn’t received and I’ve had no communication regarding continuing with your classes, I make the assumption that you do not want to attend and reserve the right to pass your space on to someone else.
How long can I continue classes?
I encourage my pregnancy students to attend classes for as long as they feel comfortable – for most women this can be right up to their due date.
What should I wear to class?
Wear comfortable clothing that allows for easy movement. Your body temperature is higher during pregnancy so it is a good idea to wear layers that you can remove or add as necessary.
Do I need to bring my own yoga mat?
I provide everything needed for class so there is no need to bring a mat with you. However, if you have your own mat and prefer to use it, please feel free to bring it along.
Can I eat before class?
It is better not to eat a large meal two hours before class; however it is important to eat regularly, so a light snack around 30 minutes before class is fine.
What time should I arrive at class?
For your first class please arrive 10-15 minutes early so that Barbara can introduce herself, show you our facilities and discuss any queries you may have. After the first class, try to aim for at least 5 minutes before class – but never stress or rush if you are running late.
