Do I need to be vaccinated?
Yes, since we have a number of vulnerable members, FLO remains a fully vaccinated location. All teachers and members need to show proof of vaccination to attend a class at FLO.
Do I need to book classes ahead of time?
You can just ‘drop-in’ for a class without booking… but some classes do get full, so it’s a good idea to book ahead. Booking is super easy, even for your first time. Simply Click Here to go to our timetable, select a class, and create an account (it only takes a minute or so). Then, when you arrive, simply check in at reception.
What do I need to bring to my first class?
For your first Yoga class, all you need to bring is a Yoga mat, or small towel. If you don’t have a mat, we sell them for $49-$79. For reformer pilates, you’ll need gripsox. If you don’t have any, we sell then at reception for $10.
What’s the best class for a beginner?
Our Timetable is colour-coded, with light colours showing our gentlest Yoga Classes, and light colours showing our simplest Pilates Classes. Either way, chances are you won’t be the only first timer, so simply let the instructor know that it’s your first time and they’ll show you where to stand and what to do 🙂
What age groups do you cater for?
We cater for all age groups, from as young as 12 (parent supervision required for the first few classes), all the way up to the most senior of seniors. We also offer special workshops for juniors and seniors, so check out our workshops calendar.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever you are most comfortable in. Most people wear either loose comfortable clothing or ‘active wear’. We are definitely not a fashion parade, but if you’d like to ‘look the part’ you can always grab one of our FLO t-shirts, singlets, or tanks, which are ethically produced and free from all the nasties. Ooooo, fancy.
What time should I arrive?
Always try to get here at least 15 minutes before class – so you have time to check in and pop your shoes etc into one of our pigeon holes. For the comfort, safety, and enjoyment of our members, once the front doors are closed, they stay closed until the end of the class.
What’s the difference between Yin, Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga and Restorative Yoga?
Each type of Yoga is slightly different. Typically, Restorative, Yin and Hatha are slower styles – with the goal of stretching, resting and opening the body. Ashtanga and Vinyasa are more dynamic – flowing through sequences of poses without stopping. They are a great way to challenge yourself.
What if I’m pregnant?
Hooray! And Congratulations! In the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, Restorative Yoga is the best option. Just make sure you let the teacher know before the class. After that, most types of Yoga are suitable, but again, let the teacher know ahead of time, just in case there are some poses you should skip. And as always, your body knows best, so if something doesn’t feel quite right, stop and let the teacher know.
Are there shower facilities?
Yes, we have really nice bathrooms and shower facilities. We also provide hair dryers and straighteners, just in case you’d like to head straight to work (or out on the town) after a class
What if I have more questions?
Send us an email. We’ll be happy to answer any additional questions you may have. And if it’s a good one, who knows, your question might even end up on this page… which would kinda make you famous 😉
