Welcome to Live Life Well Studio!!!
Let us walk you through all that you need to know before you come along to the studio!
We have classes everyday of the week, and you can check out our current timetable here!
If you have never been to the studio before, we would love to offer you our special NEWCOMER Pass, which gives you UNLIMITED Yoga, Pilates, Pilates Barre and Yin for just $49. That gives you 1 MONTH to try out different times, teachers and styles that we offer!
You can book in online, however it is not a necessity, you simply need to turn up to your chosen class 10-15 minutes beforehand so that you can sign-in and we can show you the studio.
You may have noticed that our timetable is full with a variety of different classes! You can check out what the styles are here!
The office is tucked around the corner at the top of the stairs, so when you arrive at the studio just pop your head around to let the teacher or other staff know that you're there and they can help you out.
Sorry, we do not have shower facilities! However we have toilets/change-room available for you to use.
A few more details to note:
• please bring a towel, yoga mat (if you have one, we have some to borrow) and water to class.
• please do not eat for up to 3 hours before your first class and hydrate all day.
• no shoes in the studio please - leave them at the top of the stairs in the shelves provided.
• please respect other people in the class and avoid talking.
• wear light, comfortable clothing.
• please turn mobile phones off or on silent when you enter the studio.
• if you are pregnant & new to yoga, please ask about our prenatal classes and always mention your pregnancy to the teacher. If there are no prenatal classes available, you're welcome to join any beginner class as they move slower and
give more instructions & variations. (make sure you're past the first 12weeks and have the 'ok' from your doctor)
• be sure to inform the teacher before class about any concerns or injuries.
• try not to leave during class, if you do have to, please try not to disturb the class.
• if you are late to class, you are welcome to join, but as above, try not to be disruptive and enter quietly. If students are lying down or in seated meditation please wait until they have started moving then feel free to enter.
(having said that, if one of our admin team are not in the office we tend to close the front door about 3-4mins after class
set starting time to keep the reception space secure whilst class is occurring - so to avoid being 'locked-out', please arrive
And some FAQ's:
How many times per week should I practice Yoga and/or Pilates to gain the most benefits?
Yoga and Pilates are completely different styles of exercise and both training styles complement each other tremendously. Practicing regularly (3-6 times/week) is recommended to get the best results, however even if you are only able to come once per week you will experience the benefits from both Yoga and Pilates. You will more than likely plan classes into your busy schedule as a priority once you feel and see the differences in your body and mind.
Try to be open to new experiences by trying a few (or all) of the different styles of yoga and pilates. All our teachers have their own flairs so why not try them all and see which ones are best suited to you.
What should I eat before coming to class?
It is best to avoid eating 2-3 hours before your yoga class as we twist from side to side, turn upside down, bend in different directions and if you have not fully digested a meal, you will more than likely become quickly uncomfortable. If this doesn’t suit you and you know you are someone who becomes faint or needs to eat regularly, you can experiment with having a light snack before class. It is highly recommended that you hydrate yourself by drinking plenty of water before a yoga class and after.
Can I participate if I’m pregnant?
Absolutely! As long as your doctor has given you the okay to do so, yoga and pilates can be of great benefit pre and post natal. We ask that you please inform your teacher before class so they are aware of your pregnancy and at what trimester you are at. We often offer pre-natal classes (check the timetable) however if there's no pre-natal class on and its your first time, we recommend that you attend beginners class and suitable variations will be offered to you. We also recommend that you sit out the first 12 weeks for your own peace of mind.
I’m not flexible—can I do yoga?
Yes of course you can! This is one of the greatest benefits in a regular practic, developing flexibility. You will notice the difference after your first class!
What do I need to begin? ie: clothing, equipment.
Come to your first class with an open mind, curiosity and a smile. Wear clothing you feel comfortable in keeping in mind practicality. ie: wearing pants, leggings, shorts, shirt and no need to bring shoes as all classes are barefoot. You may wish to bring a towel to class (especially in Pilates Barre) and all mats are provided, however as your practice develops you may wish to buy your own yoga mat available at the studio.
