Online Yoga Library
Do I need to sign up for a particular platform?
All you have to do is click the Online Library link in the Yoga submenu above, and you all automatically be taken to the Yoga Library. From there, you simply choose the sequence that you wish to follow.
What equipment do I need?
You will need a stable internet connection, a yoga mat and any props that support you. I have not used specific props in these short sequences so they are accessible for everyone.
What if I’m a beginner?
There are some clips that troubleshoot and give helpful suggestions for alignment otherwise, please take a less is more approach until you feel stronger or have been to some in-person classes and feel more confident.
How often do I need to do a yoga sequence?
This is at your discretion. The clips are short and you can practice them regularly, even daily. I encourage little and often rather than occasionally going all out!
Do I need to speak with my doctor before practising?
If you are under a doctor’s supervision, of course, feel free to consult with them before you begin your online practice. I will not be with you in real-time, so you will need to feel confident about self-managing and adapting to your needs.
One-to-One Yoga Coaching
Do I need any special equipment?
It’s great if you have a yoga mat and a place to lay it out, though truthfully there is plenty we can do without one. We can substitute household objects for yoga props you may need, until such time as you’re ready to buy them.
Do I need to speak with my doctor before we agree to meet?
If you are under a doctor’s supervision, of course, I am very happy for you to consult with them before we begin our program. I would ask that you let me know about any existing health conditions prior to our first session.
Can we rearrange the dates of our sessions as we go along, should something come up?
Yes, this is possible. Though an important aspect of this process is a commitment to your healing/personal development.
If something unavoidable comes up please try to provide me with 24 hours’ notice.
Giving Voice / Tune-Ups
Do I need to be able to read music or sing in tune
Absolutely not! We will not be using sheet music for the songs.
You’re encouraged to respond to our practice intuitively and so cultivating self-awareness is the priority. If you are not so confident about your voice you can begin quietly which is no less powerful.
Will I have to sing a solo?
This is not part of the Giving Voice experience. If I feel that the group would like to, I will sometimes introduce harmonies.
Can I adapt any of the movements if I can’t manage?
Definitely. All the movements are simply invitations that you can adapt to your own body. It is more about feeling and being rather than doing.
