We’re always on hand however – you can email us email@example.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can or call us on 01233 650932 and one of the team will be able to help.

I've never done it before, what do I wear?
You don’t need to wear anything special for meditation, just be comfortable. For tai chi you need to wear soft soled shoes. If you’re coming to a yoga class wear loose comfortable clothing, but please don’t wear shorts.
I want to pay cash on the day
Unfortunately we don’t accept cash nor can we take payments at the venues. Please ensure you have paid for your class before you attend.
Which class should I come to?
All our classes are listed as to whether they are beginners, improvers or intermediate level. Find one that suits you and your schedule/venue choice and visit the booking page. Intermediates yoga classes require a minimum of 2 years practice before attending.
Where is your studio located?
We use a variety of different venues around Ashford. You can find a list here.
I'd like to speak to someone
You can always use the ‘Let’s Talk’ button on the bottom right hand corner of your screen. If we’re online we can help you out straight away or you can always leave us a message and we’ll get back to you just as soon as we can. Otherwise you can phone us on weekday mornings on 01233 650932
What if I'm pregnant?
Our classes are not suitable for you if you’re pregnant.
I can't use the internet
Don’t worry, we can answer your queries by phone if you need to speak to someone. Call us on 01233 650932 and we can book your classes for you.
What shall I bring?
If you are coming to yoga class and have yoga mat then please bring it with you. Do not bring camping or pilates mats. Our teachers always have spare ones for newcomers and can lend you one until you buy your own. Bring a little blanket for the relaxation session at the end of yoga classes. You do not need to bring anything to tai chi classes, just wear soft soled shoes. Meditation classes can be a little cool as they are done seated with not much moving around. It might be wise to bring a small blanket or wear layers to keep yourself warm.
Do you have an app?
Yes, we have a free app. Simply go to where you get your apps from and search Liberty Wellbeing. It’s available for both android and iPhone.
My GP has recommended mindfulness
If your GP has recommended mindfulness, or you’re on the waiting list to see a counsellor, we suggest you come to one of our beginners mindfulness courses. Do bear in mind that is not a substitution for one-to-one sessions however it may well provide some relief whilst you wait to see a professional.
NHS Discounts and how to get them
We recognise the tough job our doctors and nurses do for all of us and, to give back to those who help us, we offer a 10% discount to all NHS staff. If this applies to you, simply send us a photo of your NHS badge or payslip and we’ll amend your account details so that each time you log in the discounted price is displayed. Please note that refunds/discounts are not given after you’ve made a booking so make sure you get this set up before booking an event.
What kind of yoga do you teach?
All our classes are general yoga, sometimes called Hatha yoga, although this simply means it is yoga for all. Some of our teachers will emphasise working with the breath in a flowing style and some of our teachers are whizzes at anatomy and take their inspiration from there. The reason we don’t advertise the style of yoga as Hatha, is that we find our students are more concerned with the level of difficulty as being more important. No one wants to walk into a class that is more advanced than they are prepared for so we advise levels of ability rather than style.
I'm on a waiting list, what does that mean?
Our booking system operates on a traffic light system. You will see a red, green or amber symbol next to the class which indicates how close to being full the class is. If you opt to go on the waiting list, you will be notified by email if a place becomes available. All students on the waiting list are emailed and the first person to respond gets the place. This is all done by our booking system.
How do I join?
Once you’ve decided which event, class or workshop you’d like to come to simply click Sign Up or select the class from the weekly schedule. At this point you will be required to make an account with us and you’ll need to pay too so have your debit card handy. Fill out your details when prompted and you’ll receive email confirmation of your bookings in your inbox.
I want to come to the same class each week
Book for a term/course using the course/term booking page – scroll down until you find your class and benefit from a reduced session price.
How do I cancel my booking?
If you need to cancel your class, event, course or workshop, then simply log into your account using the Login button on the top right hand corner of the booking page. You will find all the details in your account where you can follow the online prompts. Please note that refunds are not always given and terms and conditions apply.
I don't have a mat.
Don’t worry, the teacher will be able to lend you a mat when you first arrive.
Has my booking gone through?
You will receive a receipt from the booking system to confirm your payment has been received. You can also log in your to your account any time from the booking page,
1. Click Login button at the top right hand corner of your screen.
2. Enter your log in details and you’ll be able to check all your booking payments and upcoming events.
Can I come just to try it for free?
Unfortunately we don’t offer your first class for free. We understand many other providers do choose to do that however we feel that our teachers give excellent levels of service, instruction and tuition. You’ll receive all of that every time you come along whether it’s your first or 127th time with us.
Can my son or daughter come with me?
Our classes are only suitable for over 18’s.
How much is it?
You can opt for two ways of attending: a) You pay for the whole term, in advance. This is non-refundable or transferable however it is only £6 a class. b) You can turn up each week, but you pay a little more for this at £7.50 a class.
I can't work the booking system
If you’re not very technical and find it hard to book online, you can always speak to someone on the “Lets Talk” button on the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Or you can call us on 01233 650932 and one of our team will help you.
Classes showing as free
If the classes or events are displayed as free, sadly that’s a technical error and we’re not able to honour that. It’s quite likely that a subscription or membership is clashing somewhere. You’ll need to get in touch with us and we’ll rectify that for you immediately.
Do I have to wait for the start of term?
If you can see that the term has already started, then you can still drop in to any of our weekly classes. Simply choose your class from the weekly schedule and you can drop in for £7.50 per session at any time.
How do I find the classes?
Some of our classes are held in the dance studio at The North School. There is a handy little video for you to watch by clicking here to see where to go once you’ve arrived at the school. Our Tuesday class is held at The Towers School so we’ve also made a video for that too. Our venues page lists all the postcodes and parking for all of our venues. You can find that listed here too.
Can I pay with PayPal or BACS transfer?
No. Our comprehensive booking system helps us to allocate places on our events, provides waiting lists and securely stores your card details. Bank transfers and PayPal cannot perform these task and, with such a large number of students going through our doors each week, we need to keep details as professionally as possible.
Do you do 1:1's?
No, we currently do not offer the opportunity for private lessons.
