Testimonials from students
“I started yoga classes with Renate following an unexplained Knee inflammation which affected all the muscles in my upper leg. Along with other intensive exercise sessions in Physio & swimming twice a week I continued with Renate’s class and could gradually see a satisfying movement & strengthening of my muscles. I also do the exercises at home at least once a day before bed & they help me to sleep, I highly recommend Renate who shows a real and sympathetic understanding of your injury/strain & adapts the Yoga exercises accordingly.”
“Since I started your classes I have more confidence and am able to relax with the breathing exercises. I find it helps me with motivation and it’s great to be with other people. I certainly do have more movement even with my health problems. I do recommend you and your classes to lots of people.”
“You certainly get out what you put in at Yoga 4 seniors. Renate ensures the session covers all-round fitness even though we are sitting on chairs. Yoga encourages you to become more mindful which in turn helps you relax. Using Renate’s technics, my breathing has definitely improved.”
Frequently asked questions
What should I wear to the yoga class?
It is best to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes for the baby and yourself – nothing that restricts your movement or your breathing.
Yoga is practiced in bare feet.
You might like to bring socks and jumper/cardigan for extra warmth during the relaxation.
Do I need to have my own yoga mat?
If you have your own mat and you’d prefer to use it then you are welcome to do so. Proper yoga mats are much better than the general aerobic type that are liable to slip.
Mats are available to borrow and to buy at class.
For the relaxation you might find a small pillow useful.
Should I eat before coming to class?
Wherever possible please try not to eat a large meal for a few hours before you come to class – it is not terribly comfortable to have a full stomach while practicing.
Please bring water if you need it.
Do I need any previous yoga experience?
Yoga is not competitive!
It does not matter if you haven’t practiced before – everybody has his or her individual strengths and weaknesses to work with.
You will notice how your strength and flexibility increases after just a few sessions.
It is very important to listen to your body to only do what you feel you are capable of, and make sure to rest if you feel you need to.
