If you are following a special medical diet, please don’t forget to bring your supplements.


Medical information

For those who have an injury, hernia, have had an operation, a miscarriage or have any special condition, you can only do yoga depending on the type of injury or condition. Please consult with your doctor if this program is suitable for you. But your body knows best, please respect it. Don’t force yourself, do not strain. Give your body the time to fully recuperate. Sometimes yoga is being misinterpreted as being a very soft form of movement, fully focused on relaxation. This counts for some yoga forms but not for all! If in doubt, always ask your yoga teacher before the start if it is suitable for you and discuss your options if you have any issues. Always inform your teacher about any injury!
