YOGA - F&Q

 

 

 

What are the benefits of yoga?

Practicing yoga three to four times a week can stave off anxiety and depression, by lowering levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. It also reduces inflammation, boosts energy and has the power to lift your mood. Yoga improves cardiovascular health and lowers blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels and increasing the flow of blood to the heart, and speeds up digestion which can assist in weight loss.

Suffering from a sore neck or back? When you hold a yoga pose your muscles contract and then relax, easing tension and relieving pain. Regular practice not only benefits your body, it’s also good for your brain. Focusing the breath maximized the flow of oxygenated blood to your head, increasing memory performance, concentration, creativity and focus.

        

How should I prepare for class?

Drink water throughout the day and avoid eating heavily for two hours prior to class. Please arrive at the studio at least 10 minutes before class so you can check in, store your belongings in a secure locker and get set up.

        

Do I have to book into class?

Yes. You can check the timetable and book into class online up to an hour before class begins. Please be aware that you will be charged a no-show fee if you fail to attend. See the terms and conditions on our pricing page for information.

Do you offer private classes or corporate sessions?
Yes! Email your enquiry to reception@laportespace.com.au

        

Can I practice while I am pregnant?

Yes. If you are past your first trimester, have had no complications and have been given the ok from your doctor. We ask that you attend at least two prenatal yoga classes to learn how to modify your practice before attending regular classes, and strongly recommend you stick to non-heated classes. If you have any questions please let us know and we will put you in touch with our highly qualified teachers.

 

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Yes. We require upfront payment and if there is a cancellation within 6 hours, you will forfeit the class.
