Here are some of the commonly asked question about what we do here at Planet Yoga Liverpool? If you have any other questions please get in touch.

Please ensure mobile phones are switched off during class or on silent in the chill out area. Please refrain from chewing gum in the studio and put all litter in the bins provided. Please don’t chat during class. Listen to your body. Feel free to take a break any time you need it during class by sitting or lying quietly on your mat. Please ensure you complete a registration form prior to your very first class. Please arrive at least 20 minutes before the class starts so you can complete the registration form and familiarize yourself with where to change etc. The form can be downloaded above. Please leave the room quietly after your class as some people use that time for quiet meditation.

Yoga (particularly hot yoga) is one of the best ways of improving your flexibility, so yes you should definitely give it a go however inflexible you think you are. Flexibility is a process that can be improved over time by practicing yoga regularly. Hot Yoga can help you to achieve faster results as the heat allows you to move into deeper stretches more easily with lower risk of injury. Yoga is a non-competitive practice so you can develop at your own pace without trying to keep up with the person next to you and there are plenty of classes to suit all standards.

The heated studio allows muscles to stretch further and because your muscles are warm you are at less risk of injury. By inducing sweating, toxins are emitted from your body leaving you feeling deeply cleansed, relaxed and fully rejuvenated.

We recommend that you refrain from eating for 2 hours before a class, but it’s a good idea to drink plenty of water right up until the start. We encourage you to bring a bottle of water into the class with you so that you can stay hydrated throughout. Bottled water can be purchased from reception. For our early morning classes we recommend that you have a piece of fruit or a non-dairy smoothie before class to kick start your metabolism – working out on an empty stomach is not advised.

Please dress for comfort ensuring you have complete freedom of movement. For the hot classes it’s normal to sweat so wear comfortable light clothing. Women usually wear shorts or leggings with vests or crop tops and men wear shorts with or without a t-shirt.

We provide everything you need, but you may prefer to bring your own yoga mat and towel. For hot classes you will need a yoga mat, a large bottle of water and we recommend that you bring two towels (one for the studio, one for showering afterwards). Don’t worry if you forget as you can buy water and rent towels from reception.
