• SETTING UP YOUR AT HOME PRACTICE

    We received your feedback and noticed that a lot of you find it difficult to make your way on to your mat at home. Even though we agree that there's nothing like the warm, calming studio space at Equal, we do want to encourage you to practice! Here's our tips on how to make the most of it:

    1. Get a mat and a block

    You don't need much for your at home practice. All you need is a good quality mat. We love the anti slip yoga mats by ecoyogi that are used in our studios because they have good grip. We also recommend buying a yoga block, not just for modifications but as a really useful tool to help move your body into a pose.

    2. Create your space

    If possible try to find a space in your home dedicated to your movement practice. A space you have enough room to stretch without bumping into anything. Make it your own- warm and inviting plus feel free to add anything that might help you focus, inviting connect with your body and mind. Some people like to add candles, incense, warm lighting or even an inspiring quote.

    3. Plan ahead

    Decide on what time works best for you and commit to it. Try to make a weekly plan and stick to it. Some days you'll feel more motivated than others. Try to prepare as much as you can in advance. From booking your classes, preparing your space the night before, even your workout clothes and post- workout snack. Once you get into the flow, you'll feel lost if you miss a practice. Remember that not every practice has to be 60 minutes. A short 10 or 20 minute practice can give you just as much energy to fuel your day.

    4. Make it fun

    Step off your mat with a smile. Introduce playlists, try a new class or type of workout. Invite a friend for the extra motivation or try a practice outdoors. Keep challenging yourself to grow. Because good things come to those who sweat.

  • GENERAL INFORMATION

    UPDATE: All our studios are closed until further updates.

    At all of our studios, the capacity has been reduced to 50% to allow for a 1.5 m distance in between all the mat spots. Our ventilation system does not circulate air, it refreshes the air. In every class, fresh air from outside is coming in, and the air from the room is going out. Our studios are heated by infrared panels, and not by hot air.

    On top of this, with the extra safety measures including cleaning and keeping the distance, we are doing all that we can to keep everyone safe, healthy and happy. We ask for the support of our students to understand our procedures and help us stay open and continue teaching yoga.

  • HYDRATE

    Please remember to drink enough water before, during (small sips), and after class. Hydration is very important. You can bring your own bottle or purchase cold bottled water from the front desk. Glasses are not allowed in our studios. Coconut water is also a great post-workout option by the way.

    ARRIVE EARLY

    Please make sure you arrive at least 5-10 minutes before your class starts. It’s never a good idea to arrive feeling rushed or stressed before doing yoga. After the class has started we don't allow any late entries to ensure a calm and full practice for everyone. 

    WHAT TO WEAR

    As you will be likely to sweat (a lot!), wear simple, breathable clothing that does not limit your range of motion. Think: T-shirts, singlets, shorts and yoga leggings, any outfit that you would wear going for a run on a hot day. 

    WHAT TO BRING

    The heat will make you dripping with sweat, we advise during COVID-19 to bring your own mat and towel or anti-slip yoga towel. You can also borrow a mat and rent a towel for €2. In our studios we detox from phones, so please keep yours in your locker during your class! 

    WHICH CLASS?

    We recommend trying out the Core Flow and Hot Fusion classes if you are new to yoga, which allow you to build a strong foundation for your practice. Our Equal Yin classes are suitable for all levels as well. 

    EAT BEFOREHAND

    Make sure you’ve had a meal a few hours before class. If you’re hungry just before class, stick to a light snack like fruit or crackers. We have a small selection of energy bars at the front desk if you need some extra fuel. 

    INJURIES & (POST) PREGNANCY

    Can you still practice yoga with an injury? Well, that depends. What did your doctor/physiotherapist say? Please consult with your specialist and when joining for a class please let your teacher know on arrival so that we can discuss any possible modifications for class. 

    Can you practice yoga while (post) pregnant? Well, that depends. What did your obstetrician say? While more obstetricians recommend yoga during pregnancy (which is great!) as a general rule of thumb it is not recommended to start anything brand new during pregnancy. If you already have a steady and strong practice you could likely enjoy your practice throughout your pregnancy, if you've never done yoga starting a hot power yoga practice might not be the best time. Please let your teacher know if you desire any possible modifications. After your pregnancy in general you can slowly start to build up, but listening to your body and consulting a specialist or a doctor if you have doubts are the best way to go.
