Are there changing facilities?
We have one large wheelchair accessible wc, and two smaller wc’s where you can get changed.
Are there shower facilities?
Unfortunately we do not have space for shower facilities.
Where do I leave my personal belongings?
Please leave your shoes, coat and bag in the studio hallway. Bring any valuables into the studio with you. There are cubby holes at the back of the room. Please remember to turn off mobile phones
Do I need to bring a mat?
Most students prefer to bring their own mat however we supply mats free of charge. We ask students to spray them with the essential oil spray to keep them fresh for the next student and to please roll them up back and put them back in their place.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable, light clothing. Bring a warm layer for yoga relaxation, or for yin and restorative classes.
Should I bring water?
We have filtered water in the cafe however glasses of water are not permitted into the studio. Please bring a bottle if you wish to bring water into the class.
What if I’m late?
For the benefit of other students we ask that you try to arrive on time, as movement at the beginning of class can be disruptive. We understand however that delays happen so please enter the studio quietly once the class has started.
If you know you will be late and it is a popular class, please try to phone ahead to avoid your place being allocated to a waiting student.
Evening Yin and Restorative classes begin with deep relaxation so it is genuinely much too disruptive to move students once the class begins.
The side door is locked once class begins and unfortunately late arrival is not possible for these classes.
I purchased a pass, signed up to one class and cannot sign into anymore?
Our class passes activate from the first class booked e.g. Feb 1st. If you then try to book a class previous to this date e.g Jan 30th, the system won’t allow it as your pass is valid from the first class booked. To fix this issue simply go ‘my schedule’ on your account, and early cancel your initial booking. You can then start again.
For classes we operate a lenient 2 hour cancellation policy. If you cancel before this, your class credit will be added back to your Mindbody account for future use. If you cancel within 2 hours you will lose your class credit as if you attended.
For workshops we operate a 2 day cancellation policy. If you cancel before this, your workshop credit will be added back to your Mindbody account for future use. If you cancel within 2 days of the workshop you will lose your credit as if you attended.
Class Pass Extensions
Almost all of our class passes are valid for a month, with the larger passes priced more competitively. They are designed to encourage the more regular student but not to punish you for missing classes. If you have been ill, or injured, please email us and we will extend your pass.
How big are the classes?
Little bird is proud to be one of the most intimate studios in Dublin. Classes have a max of 18 students at all times. Yin, Restorative, and The Fluid Body classes are smaller and limited to 16. Workshops have a max of 16 students. This ensures that each students receives individual attention from the teacher.

I’m pregnant, can I attend regular classes?

You are into your second trimester,
Your GP has given you the go ahead,
You have practiced yoga before.

How do I book a friend in for a class/workshop?
To book a person other than yourself into a yoga class or workshop, simply click ‘book’ followed by ‘reserve for someone else’ and make the purchase. Please note: Clicking buy for a specific class followed by purchasing two drop-ins does not sign you into that class twice. Two separate transactions need to happen for you to successfully sign yourself and another person into class/workshop.
