The gentle movement was just what I needed to soften and unwind some of my muscles that had forgotten how to behave themselves.
I appreciated the way Anna took her time to show us what muscles were benefiting with each of her designed movements. I enjoy knowing the why just as much as I enjoy exploring the actual movement itself and Anna combined the two masterfully.
Anna held us in a space that was relaxed and well guided. I look forward to your happy neck and shoulders class.”

Q&A about Revive Yoga’s gentle yoga workshops


Q.  Does it matter if I’ve never done yoga before?

A. Not at all.  Revive Yoga’s workshops are suitable for all ages and stages – from complete beginners, to experienced yoga practitioners.

Q. My back / neck / shoulders / hips are really sore at the moment so is it ok to do a gentle yoga workshop?

A. If you register for a workshop then please be sure to let me know if you are experiencing pain so I can discuss your situation with you in more detail before making a recommendation about whether or not to proceed.

If you are experiencing stiffness or the type of pain that is typically associated with tight muscles then that will probably not be an issue.  However, if you are experiencing acute (sharp, intense) pain (for example, you put your back ‘out’ the other day) or have pain associated with a recent injury, then please consult with your physiotherapist or health professional before registering.

Q. Are the gentle yoga workshops suitable for pregnant women?

A. Most of the exercises are suitable for pregnant women, however some workshops include exercises that involve lying on the stomach and / or back so should not be done after the first trimester.  Please let me know if you are pregnant when registering for a workshop so I can discuss it with you and offer you alternative exercises during the workshop.
