Please do get in touch if there is anything else that I’ve not covered here that you would like to ask!
Q: How do I book a Course, Drop In place or onto an event/Workshop?
A: Send a message to me first to check availability at the session you would like to attend then head to the Bookings Page, to make your payment either by PayPal (N.B. there’s a small added charge) or via an online personal banking transfer to the listed bank account (no charge). The system will register your payment and generate a booking confirmation. Please email me the drop in day/course that you would like to attend so that I can ensure there is space for you.
Q: Can I get a refund?
A: Please familiarise yourself with the Terms & Conditions: All bookings made are non-refundable/non transferable.
Q: Where are classes held?
A: I teach Yoga at several different studios/venues in Brighton and Hove: Cornerstone Centre, Hove, Revitalise, Hove, Upstairs @ SIX, Hove, and on Brighton and Hove seafront during the summer months. Please see my Soul Soothing Yoga page and my Saturday session pages for the full address of each venue, the timings, and all other info.
Q: How do I get there by public transport, and is there parking?
A: At Cornerstone Centre, Church Road Hove, parking is on-street ‘Pay & Display’. The centre is served by buses 1, 2, 5, 6, 25 and 49 along Church Road between Hove and Churchill Square and is roughly 10 minutes walk from Hove train station, and around 30 minutes walk from Brighton train station.
A: At Revitalise, Western Road, Hove, you can park on Cambridge Road, Brunswick Road, Norfolk Road, Norfolk Square, Brunswick Place, Waterloo Street or Brunswick Street East for £1.60 (2 hours), or Lansdowne Road £3 (4 hours). Alternatively, Waitrose is 10 minutes walk and is free for 90 mins.
There is a bus stop outside Revitalise (by the large Coop store, ask for Norfolk Square stop), served by the following buses: 1, 1A, 2, 2A, 5, 5A, 5B, 6, 24, 25, 46, 49, 49A, 81. Revitalise is approximately 20 minutes walk from Brighton train station, and 30 minutes walk from Hove train station.
A: Upstairs @ SIX studio is just a few minutes walk from Revitalise, along Western Road, Hove, so follows similar transport suggestions as above.
Q: Can I just turn up, last minute, at a class?
A: There are usually a few drop in spaces available at my sessions. Please RSVP beforehand (via text or email) to check there is space, and to take advantage of the “advance session”/online rates! If it is very last-minute paying cash at the session is sometimes possible, please do contact me beforehand to check availability and to avoid disappointment. I look forward to welcoming you soon!
Q: Are the classes suitable for beginners?
A: My classes are very accessible as I teach a gentle, mindful and flowing style of Yoga, combined with some deeper stretches and some carefully orchestrated challenges! I welcome complete beginners, and always offer modifications in the yoga poses/sequences for specific needs. Feel free to contact me beforehand with any questions or concerns.
Q: Do I need to tell you about any health issues that could affect my yoga practice?
Q: Should I eat before or after Yoga?
A: It is recommended that you allow at least one hour after eating before practising yoga so that you don’t have a full tummy and feel uncomfortable, and so that the body can efficiently digest your meal. Allow yourself some quiet time after the session before eating.
Q: How many people do you generally have in your groups?
A: Sessions number vary. The studio spaces are limited to maximum 15 people at my Tuesday evening class held at Cornerstone, and maximum 10 people at my Saturday sessions held at Revitalise.
Q: What do I need to bring with me to the yoga session?
A: Each of the studios is fully equipped (mats, blocks, blankets, bolsters/cushions) so just bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated. For the outdoor Yoga sessions you will need your own mat and any other props, along with some water, and sunscreen in the day time summer sessions, and warmer layers for any evening sessions.
Q: Do I need to bring my own mat to the yoga sessions?

I also post any outdoor group sessions on my Facebook page: Karmiyoga Yoga – please ‘like’ my page and keep your notifications switched on to receive notiications.
Q: Where do the Outdoor Yoga sessions take place?
A: At different parts of Hove Lawns. Generally, I hold sessions at the Western end of Hove Lawns on the grass facing the beach huts, and at the bottom of Fourth Avenue Hove.
