How long does each workout last?
How many days a week do I need to train?
The current program includes 4 training days, which is highly recommended. However, the number of days you train is up to you. Our program is continually evolving, so be on the lookout for new days that will soon be released! As long as you follow the set days within the program you can train as many days as you like. Remember to listen to your body and slow down when required if that’s what your body’s intuition is signalling you to do so. After all we are here to practice today so you can practice tomorrow. It is still recommended to have at least one complete rest day.

How can I avoid getting injuries?
Injuries can occur from a range of factors such as when students do not properly warm up, perform exercise techniques that deviate from the what was intended, fatigue, or try and forcing their bodies beyond limits, which they are not ready for. This is why it is very important that you honor what your body needs, every time you come into the room and please leave your ego at the door. Injuries itself can be one of our greatest teachers, where they force us to slow down, modify and listen to our bodies.
Some tips to prevent injuries occurring:
If you have any pre-existing conditions, please speak to your Doctor or Physiotherapist before coming to class. Focus on maintaining our practiced breathing techniques throughout the training session, even if it means you need to take it to a less intense variation. Listen to your body. Be mindful of your bodies intuitions on how deeply, strongly or for how long you can hold a position for. If you are experiencing pain or exhaustion during class, stop and rest immediately. Make sure that you warm up thoroughly at the start of the class – the purpose of this is to increase the circulation and movement of our muscles, lubricating our joints and prepares the body for the session. Listen and watch as the workout is explained. This will ensure that you perform the correct technique and reduce the likelihood of developing tension in areas where it’s not needed. Each of our bodies is built differently, and some of us have a tendency towards unsupported hyper-flexion, hyper-extension and excessive rotation or twisting. Listen carefully to the alignment cues, analyse how your body moves and speak to myself if you feel something is not correct.
A healthy balance of food intake and regular exercise are necessary fundamentals for weight loss, weight maintenance, toning or building muscle and being an overall happy warrior. Every individual body is different though, so your results may vary. Please discuss any decision in beginning a fitness or diet program with your healthcare professional.
