FAQs

Is yoga only for the flexible?

No. On the contrary, as we practice yoga, we find that the stiffness in our body is gradually replaced by flexibility.  This is one of the many changes people notice in their bodies just a few weeks after taking up yoga.

Are there any age limits or health restrictions?

Although there are no age limits or health restrictions, our classes are most suitable for those who can carry out normal movements unaided. If you have any specific health conditions then please ensure that your yoga teacher is aware of them. Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult.

Can I join your classes if I haven’t done yoga before?

Absolutely! In fact, the Classical Yoga class is specifically designed to cover all the elements required to build strong foundations for your yoga practice.

I am interested – How do I join your classes?

That’s great! Please provide some brief details about you, including your name, contact number, email and interest in yoga and drop us an email to ‘mehul@chikri.com’ or ‘miti@chikri.com’.

Is it ok to eat before doing yoga?

It is best to practice on an empty stomach: allow at least 3 hours after a heavy meal or 2 hours after a light meal before your yoga session.

What about drinking water?

Drink some water before or during class as it is important to stay hydrated, but empty the bladder and bowels if possible beforehand. Of course, take a loo break whenever you need to, even while the class is in progress.

What equipment do I need?

Please invest in a good quality yoga mat, one that has a good grip so that you do not slip. You may find that other accessories, such as yoga blocks, may also help.

What clothing should I wear?

Wear comfortable clothes that will allow your skin to breathe, e.g. the kind you would wear if working out in the gym. Yoga is usually practiced in bare feet, but if you wish to wear socks then please ensure that they will not slip on your mat.  Have something warm like a shawl, blanket or jumper to cover up when the body temperature drops during periods of relaxation.

Can I wear jewellery during class?

It is advisable to not wear any jewellery or watches during class; please remove anything that is a potential hazard or can interfere with your practice before the class begins.

How do I practice yoga safely?

The golden rule for safety is to listen to the body and practice with care and awareness: we work with our body, not against it and we never force it into positions of pain or extreme discomfort.

How can I get the most out of my yoga session?

The secret is in the mind-set! Carry out your practice with an attitude of playful curiousity, immerse yourself completely into the present moment and enjoy the experience without worrying about achieving any goals or seeing ‘results’. Yoga is non-competitive and non-judgemental: it is your personal journey and, paradoxically, the more we ‘let go’ the need to achieve, the more we gain from our yoga practice!

What if I need to make a complaint?

If you are considering making a complaint to Chi Kri or Chi Kri Yoga, you should first:

Try to sort out the problem with those who are directly involved. Generally complaints are resolved more easily and effectively at an early stage and by those who have a direct influence on the situation.
