Onsite Classes & Covid Protocols

We can’t wait to see you! To keep everyone safe please:

  • Arrive on time, changed & ready to practice
  • Bring your own mat (we have communal mats you can wipe down & borrow if necessary but better to bring your own)
  • Use the hand sanitiser provided when you arrive & leave
  • Maintain social distancing, 1+m between students at all times
  • Respect others, don’t come if you are unwell & always follow the teachers instructions

Group classes are not suitable for everybody – some conditions require specialist modifications, understanding & training – for example these classes are NOT suitable if you are pregnant. You MUST discuss any medical condition, illness and/or injury with us & your teacher prior to class – before class starts ask the teacher about the private chat option. If in doubt use caution and seek advice from your GP.

How to Access Online Classes

Bookings close 20 minutes before the class starts. Your teacher will text you a link / Zoom Meeting ID & password before class, then go to www.zoom.us/join and say hello – bonus if you have a Zoom account/download the app but you don’t need to pay anything. It’s live & interactive so you can see & hear the teacher – and can communicate with them.

– Find a space you can practice & roll out your yoga mat, blanket or rug – it’s useful to have a block or cushions handy (beginners & anybody who has had back/knee problems should sit on these for all seated postures).

– Balance your laptop, tablet, phone or TV where you can see it – it’s really useful for the teacher to be able to see you during class but everybody else can see you too so you can switch your camera off if you like.

– Live & interactive classes are amazingly similar to normal classes, you can see friends and make new ones – nice people getting together to do stuff, just like normal.

– Feel free to set up your own back ground music if you like.

– Just do what you can as gently as you like – if anything doesn’t feel right just miss it out!
