I've never done Yoga before!
First of all, welcome. We're sure you'll become a Yoga advocate shortly. Yoga is an ancient discipline built on three main structures: postures, breathing and meditation. The postures of Yoga are designed to put pressure on the glandular systems of the body, thereby increasing their efficiency and improving overall health. Breathing techniques are based on the concept that breath is the source of life in the body.
These two systems of postures and breath prepare the body and mind for meditation where you can then experience a “quiet” mind and healing from everyday stress.
If you're new to Yoga, or have only done a couple of classes before, we'd highly recommend you either attend a Yoga for Beginners Course, or have 2-3 Private 1:1 or Semi-Private Yoga sessions.
I've never done pilates before!
Pilates is a low impact mind and body workout. It focuses on lengthening and strengthening the muscles. Pilates helps your body to move more efficiently and with ease.
Joints and muscles need to be properly aligned to enable joints to move freely becoming less prone to injury. Every Pilates exercise is very precise, aiming to improve things like core and back strength, posture and balance, to flexibility, enhanced sports performance and better co-ordination (to name but a few).
Pilates can be practiced by men and women of all ages and all abilities.
i'm not very flexible
You don't have to be, but you will soon gain better flexibility and mobility with regular classes at TWS. We adapt all of our movements to cater for various abilities. If you need to take it easy, may we suggest you try the following classes or sessions.
• Gentle Yoga or Gentle Pilates
• Gentle Chair Yoga
• Biomechanical Mat Pilates
• Private 1:1 Yoga/Pilates/Pain Posture Solution Pilates
is there water at the wellbeing space?
Of course. We have filtered water for clients at TWS.
I'm of a certain age, will this be too much for me?
Can we be the first to say that you don't look a day over 40! Coming to Yoga or Pilates on a regular basis helps reduce symptoms such as Osteoporosis, keeps you fit, flexible and gives your body the full range of motion it needs to stay healthy! It's also a great place to meet like minded people. There's quite a gaggle of regulars who all meet for coffee after their class.
Can we suggest:
• Gentle Yoga & Gentle Chair Yoga
• Gentle Pilates
• Private 1:1 Yoga or Biomechanical / Pain Relief Pilates sessions
what do i wear to a class or session?
For all classes, we recommend loose, comfortable gym clothing (a t-shirt & gym leggings or shorts are ideal). For Pilates classes, some clients wear Pilates socks (socks with grip material underneath), however this isn't a pre-requisite. Just make sure your clothes can bend & stretch with your body.
Do I have to bring my own mat / equipment?
We provide all mats and Yoga/Pilates/Fitness equipment, such as Yoga blocks, blankets, resistant bands etc.
If you'd prefer to bring your own mat with you, be our guest.
i have a current or old injury - what should I do?
First and foremost, if your Doctor has given you the thumbs up to exercise, then that's great. Please talk with the teacher just before class starts. They are also experts, and will be able to either tailor moves just for you, or suggest holding off various movements until your injury is nearly healed.
i'm a guy, classes aren't for me, right?
Wrong! Sorry gentlemen. We have lots of guys who come to our Yoga, Pilates & Fitness classes (including our male therapists who like to join in for the odd class or two). Men tend to either going 'hell for leather' at fitness, potter around on the golf course or do very little exercise at all.
can young adults (13-18 years old) attend classes?
Absolutely! Teens are more than welcome. We ask that parents/guardians arrive with them when they first attend a class, as you need to sign their New Client form.
I'm embarRassed By the way I look
Please don't be! We are all sizes and shapes at TWS. Whilst some studios are very much 'this is the place to be seen' - we have a more holistic and traditional approach to wellbeing. Leave your hangups at the door. Be at ease with who you are - even if you're not at the stage you want to be right now. We can support you.
