Frequently Asked Questions

And Practical Information

My account

When you want to book classes at the Innersense Yoga you need an account in Eversports. If you’re on our website and go to the schedule, the bookingsystem automatically will lead you to the registration form in Eversports.

Cancellations

Can’t make it to class? Please always cancel your booking, and try to do so at least 6 hours before the class so that somebody else can get your spot. With our limited capacity, we want to make sure as many people can practice with us again. To cancel, go to your account and cancel the class in your schedule..

Hygiene

If you can, have a refreshing shower before yoga, or wash your hands, feet and face. It’s not advisable to smoke before yoga. After practice, leave the sweat on your body so that the skin can re-absorb the eliminated hormones and minerals.

Injuries

Please let the teacher know if you have any injuries, pains or if you have had surgery that may be relevant to yoga practice. This could be anything: knee pain, back problems, high bloodpressure or other complaints.

Energy in movement

If you feel nauseous, have a headache or other complaints after yoga, it can be due to a variety of factors. Yoga postures or asanas stimulate many systems of the body, and elicit many processes, as for example, the elimination of toxins. When these toxins circulate through the body, you may experience physical effects. Other causes for feeling uncomfortable may be mental. Speak with the teacher for advice and guidance. It’s not abnormal to be emotional during or after yoga (sorrow, joy, anger, bliss, etc.). Observe arising and passing emotions and… breathe!

Listen to yourself

Remember that it is your yoga practice and your body. Be patient and be mindful. Differentiate between ambition and enthusiasm. Meet your ambitions with calmness, curiosity and observation. Don’t push yourself too hard when pressing your body into postures. Listen to your body and get to know your own limits – respect yourself. Keep focusing on the essence of yoga practice: breathing and awareness.

Online bookings

You can reserve your class by booking online. Bookings are open 8 days in advance for all classes and can be made through the regular schedule. When you’ve booked a class, you can find this under ‘my classes’ in your account. As we have very limited space we need to do our utmost with the limited mats. Therefore, we ask you to please be very mindful of your registrations and cancellations.

Eating & yoga

To avoid poor digestion, it’s highly recommended not to eat 2 hours prior to yoga practice. If you are very hungry, have something light, such as a fruit. As a rule: never practice yoga if you are too hungry, or too full. It’s also highly recommended to not drink within 30 minutes before, or during yoga practice. Furthermore it’s recommended to wait 30-45 before eating and drinking after yoga, to allow your mind and body to assimilate relaxation or shavasana.

Menstrual Cycle

Respect the cycle of the body, and take it easy during your period. During the first days of menstruation avoid intense practice and especially inverse postures such as head- and shoulder stand. Also avoid intense belly movements such as in navasana (the boat) as well as strong backward bends and twists. Let the teacher know, and you will be given adapted postures.

Pregnancy

We recommend our students not do yoga in the first trimester, and just to attend the Prenatal classes after the 3rd month. We give pregnancy yoga weekly, you can find them on our schedule.

Before entering the class, please always tell the instructor that you are pregnant or have just given birth, so that he / she can show you custom poses where needed.

Clothing and props

Wear clean and comfortable clothes made of natural fibers. Practice yoga barefoot and remove jewellery and watches. We provide yoga mats and pillows to use during classes, but you are welcome to bring your own mat. It may also be useful to bring a towel and a blanket or shawl (for meditation and relaxation).

Incense

Please avoid wearing perfume during yoga practice, to help your breathing and as a courtesy to fellow students. We use incense in the studio to cleanse the air and steady the energy in the room.

Silence

Please respect the silence in the yoga room. When you enter the room, simply find yourself a mat and lie down in relaxation, so as to calm your mind and body before yoga. In order to ensure nice and quiet starts of classes, we kindly ask you to be present 10 minutes before the class commences.
