Time:

All classes and workshops:

  • Please aim to arrive early as classes start at the scheduled time – we start to congregate 15 mins before the class starts in face-to-face in person sessions for registration, and at class scheduled start time on online sessions.

  • Registration is 15 minutes prior to walk group start time. Please make clear any accessible, health concerns and ICE contacts at this time.

  • Once we start the class I go offline and can’t help you if you are lost or running late, so please familiarise yourself with the directions or online facilities. If in doubt, please contact me well ahead of the class starting time. 

  • Please note that due to the nature of the class and walking groups, we cannot wait or admit latecomers once the group has commenced.

What to bring: 

Unless other wise stated, just bring your beautiful selves, your smiles and an open mind. On a practical note, you do not need to wear special clothing, just suitable clothing for the environment the class is in. See below for further details and don’t be shy to contact me if you have any special requirements or questions.

Studio based classes:

  • Please wear clothes you feel comfortable in. Although I will provide you with a mat, bolster, pillow and blanket, given you will lie down for most of the time (there are adaptive positions for those who cannot lie down) you may want to bring an extra layer to cover yourselves such as a favourite shawl or blanket and a small pillow.

  • If you have your own preferred equipment or accessibility adapting equipment please bring them with you to make the class as comfortable as possible. The aim is to completely relax your body so that you can better relax your mind.
     

Ecotherapy and walks:

  • Beach based activities: please wear clothing and footwear that you are happy to get wet and offer you protection from the sun as well as a towel and a change of clothes and shoes. Please make sure you are able to meet the fitness levels required for each class eg if it is sea based, you must be able to swim a minimum of 25 metres and float unaided.

  • Land based activities: unless it is very warm, do bring extra layers as you will find that you may cool down at different intervals during the session. If it is very warm or hot, please bring sunscreen, a hat, mozzie spray and wear clothing that allows you to be comfortable and protected both in the sun and the shade. If we are hiking or walking, please make sure that you are able to meet the physical demands of the class. Walking routes and speeds are usually stated in the event page. We usually go at an easy, ambling pace due to the social and mindfulness nature of our walks.

  • Don’t forget to bring a bottle of water with you regardless and also wear comfortable, good grip shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy or wet.

  • Also please ensure that you go to the bathroom well before we start any walks and classes particularly if we are outdoors, where access to toilets are limited or non existent. Please do NOT leave the group for any reason before the walk ends and if you need to leave, you MUST inform me. 

  • Rubbish bins can also be scarce so please take any litter with you to get rid of at home.

  • Classes go ahead whatever the weather as we practice embracing whatever nature brings, so dress accordingly!
     

Pool based classes:

  • Please make sure you are comfortable being immersed in water and able to float in a pool for long periods of time as you will be (where appropriate in accessible- needs only classes) floating in water for the whole part of the meditation. You must be able to swim at least 20 metres without effort or stress. Equipment will be given to help you remain afloat for the duration of the meditation and class but you must comfortable with  lying on your back and float unaided in order to participate.

  • Please bring a swimming costume, towel and shower things and of course a change of clothes.
