Q&A about Revive Yoga’s HAPPY Necks and Shoulders 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.  Will we be doing yoga moves for the whole three hours?

A.  No, the yoga part of it is around 1.5 –  2 hours in total. The workshop also includes time for discussion, learning about key muscles, information and insights, and a brief break.  The yoga part of the workshop is designed for all ages and stages – even if you are unfit, inflexible or have never done yoga before.

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.
