FAQ

 Do I need a yoga mat? 

 

Zen Em has a limited number of mats available to borrow, which you are welcome to use when you are first trying yoga. If you intend to continue practising, it is advised that you invest in your own mat. This means you can choose a material and thickness that suits you, plus you can practise at home! If any other equipment is required during class, this will be provided by Zen Em. 

 

 What should I wear? 

 

Anything that is comfy, and that you can move in freely. Shorts, leggings, or sports attire are usually ideal. Crazy leggings are encouraged!

 

 How much does it cost? 

 

Please refer to the 'Classes' section, under which you'll find the price options under each various class or course.

 

 I’m not flexible, can I do yoga? 

 

Absolutely! Yoga works to both strengthen and stretch the muscles, so classes will be designed to achieve a balance of both in order to create stability in our bodies. Over time with regular practise, you may find your flexibility improving. But touching your toes is not a prerequisite!

 

 I have a medical condition, can I do yoga? 

 

It is always advisable to speak to a medical professional before undertaking a new form of physical activity. If your Doctor has given you the go ahead, it is your responsibility to keep Zen Em updated with any relevant information that may impact your practise. Yoga is beneficial for many conditions, but it is also your responsibility to practise with care and awareness of your body. In some cases, Zen Em may request a medical note to ensure you are fit to practise.

 I’m pregnant, can I do yoga? 

 

Before you start prenatal yoga, it is advisable to speak to your medical care provider. If you have any particular conditions or concerns at any point in your pregnancy, Zen Em may ask to see written approval from your GP or midwife. All being well, you can start practising prenatal yoga from your second trimester, right up until you give birth!

 What is the 'hypno' part of hypnobirthing? 

Don't worry, there is no hocus pocus involved! Being in a state of hypnosis simply means being in a relaxed state. You are in control at all times, and fully aware of what is happening! Zen Em won't be dangling a clock in front of your eyes whilst you do a chicken dance!  

 What do I need for Zoom Yoga? 

All you need is a yoga mat, and a quiet space to move and relax. It can also be useful to have water, a cushion and a blanket to hand. If you have any equipment such as belts and blocks, you are always welcome to use these.​

 Do I need pro Zoom? 

No, Zen Em has the professional version so all you need is a regular free account.

 Do I have to have my camera on for Zoom Yoga? 

Only if you want to! It can be helpful for Zen Em to see if the class is following, but we understand that not everyone wants to be seen.​

 What is the Zoom cancellation policy? 

For all yoga​ and pregnancy relaxation classes, cancellation made at least 6 hours before the class start time will be refunded in full, or credited back to your Class Pass. Any cancellations after this time will be down to Zen Em's discretion.
