Frequently Asked Questions

What is Yoga Mapp?

Yoga Mapp is an easy to use booking tool for students to find and book and teachers to list classes on our platform.

Why was Yoga Mapp set up?

Yoga Mapp was set up during Covid-19 to offer a one-stop virtual space in which to find and share all the fab classes that were available through livestream during that time.

Why livestream?

Livestream yoga increased in popularity in 2020, not only because of lockdown but also because it has broken down some important barriers with regards to its ease, inclusivity and accessibility. As students, we no longer need to feel awkward or self-conscious about practising a new style of yoga or a join a class that we might find intimidating in public. Instead, we can practice in the comfort of our own homes whilst still feeling the energy of others and experiencing a real time class with live teaching and in-the-moment verbal adjustments.

 

It’s also been a great way to get yoga into daily life when taking time away from home to practice, especially for parents and carers, is limited.

 

So, whilst we support listings of location based classes, workshops and retreats, that adhere to Covid-19 regulations, for now, you’ll mainly find a wide range of livestream yoga all in one place. Just make sure you’ve got your screen on and that your space is hazard-free.

 

We hope you enjoy practising livestream with real teachers in real time, as much as we have!

Why practice yoga?

Yoga means union and connects the mind, body and soul. It:

  • Brings calmness to the mind through meditation, breathing exercises, and relaxation
  • Improves flexibility, strength, tone and relaxation to the body
  • Has healing properties and helps to feel centred

The more regular our practice, the greater the benefits.

Who can practice yoga?

Yoga is for everyone and every body!

Anyone can practice yoga. That’s why Yoga Mapp offers a variety of yoga styles and a range of class prices. We offer a range of class levels whether you’re taking your first step onto a yoga mat, or are a more experienced practitioner seeking out a challenge!

How do I know what level of class to book?

We know that people can’t be labelled but here’s a guide to help you decide what level you’re at in your personal yoga journey. Teachers categorise the level of their own classes.

 

All levels

Learner: new to the yoga style, hardly taken any classes

Beginner+: tried this yoga style a few times but not so familiar with the postures, styles or sequences

Intermediate+: been practising a while but may be with injury or limitations

Expert: may have completed teacher training, extremely flexible and open, e.g. can do lotus.
