Yoga refers to a wide variety of practices, physical and non-physical. In order to promote mental well-being and self-affirmation, with a secondary emphasis on stamina, endurance and flexibility. There are many forms of Yoga that put emphasis on meditation, elimination of stress, anxiety, depression, fitness and many more, so there’s something for everyone!

I’ve never done yoga before – which class is best for me?
All our classes are suitable for all levels. Each class is different and you might find one more challenging or enjoyable than another, but all are modifiable.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Mats, blocks and straps are provided by us. All you need to bring is yourself in some comfy clothing and student ID.
What do all the classes mean?
Forrest – a structured form of yoga focusing on holding positions, abdominal work and breathing.
Vinyasa – a flow that synchronises seamless postures with breathing.
Aerial – a yoga that pushes your flexibility and improves upper body strength with the use of a hammock. Allows you to do postures that you wouldn't normally be able to do on a yoga mat.
How do I pay and sign up for classes?
You can sign up and pay for our classes on this NUSU page. The dates for each class will be released in advance. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds so make sure you sign up for classes you can attend – sign ups are possible right up until the class begins!
Can I come and try a class before buying membership?
We sometimes run free taster classes for anyone to come to, but unless this is explicitly written on our socials you will need membership to attend Monday, Wednesday, and Sunday classes. This is for 3 reasons:
- This is the NUSU policy as we need to make sure you’re covered by our insurance
- It’s unfair to our other members who have bought membership
- YogaSoc needs your membership to survive!
Once you've bought membership, you then pay for each class individually here.
