FAQ's

  1. Is Yoga a Religion?
    No. Yoga is a set of techniques for you to realise your chosen uplifting goals. It can be practised by anyone who is dedicated and who has been properly instructed. 
    However if you are religious or spiritual you may incorporate your beliefs into your Yoga practise.
  2. Are there any prayers during Simplicityoga sessions. 
    No. But there are moments of quiet where the participants can engage in relaxing visualisation, meditation or quiet personal prayer of their choosing.
  3. What styles of (Hatha) Yoga do you teach?
    In a general class we adopt a mixture of styles which might be characterised as "classical, gentle, vinyasa, restorative and yin". The mixture is varied to suit the participants goals and abilities. 
  4. I am not flexible and am daunted by the Yoga poses I have seen on the web.
    Gradually, you will become more flexible by the end of the course :). In any case, you do not have to contort yourself to enjoy the benefits of yoga.
  5. Is there a minimum or maximum age limit for Yoga?
    We accept participants from ages 14 to 104. For seniors, practices can be adapted using, for example, a chair.
  6. Can I get a good cardio workout with Yoga?
