My Mama Said is a mantra that is unique to everyone because it allows you to express your own beliefs and philosophies.
If you are injured you must check with your doctor or health practitioner before starting any exercise program. If you have clearance from your doctor, just let your instructor know what your injury is and they will guide you on modifications and exercises to avoid. Listen to your body and if you are unsure, wait the exercise out.

If you are pregnant you must check with your doctor before starting any exercise program. If you have never exercised before, we recommend you join a pre-natal class. If you are a regular fitness attendee, let your instructor know and they will modify your session according to which trimester you are in. If you have a history of miscarriage or complications during pregnancy, perhaps wait it out and start your exercise program after you have given birth to your beautiful bundle of joy!

Latecomers will not be admitted to class. This is for your safety as the warm up at the start of class is of the upmost importance. It is also out of respect for those already in class who will be distracted by you as you rush to set up all your props. If you are late, grab a cup of tea and a magazine and chill out in our lounge! You might be able to join the next class.

Barre classes require you to be barefoot. It is not possible to do barre class in shoes. If you have a foot thingy and the idea of going barefoot scares the heck out of you, then you may like to try a pair of socks that have grip on the sole. Just be aware that some exercises will still not be possible.

Yoga classes require you to be barefoot, but I promise no one will be looking at your feet. It is just not that kind of class if you know what I mean.

Pilates can be done with either bare feet or socks.

Zumba is usually done with sneakers or barefoot if you are that way inclined!

Please also bring a sweat towel for hygiene purposes.

Try not to eat a heavy meal before class. We recommend you eat at least 90 minutes before class so you can get the most out of your session. You didn’t come to class to work out your digestive system now did you? If you are one of those people who need something before they exercise, keep to a light snack.
