Fountain Court Birmingham

Wellbeing when & where you need it thanks to Fountain Court, in the heart of Birmingham’s Business District (B4 6DR)

We are back on the 2nd & 3rd floors at Fountain Court from 27th April until 10th June 2022, with the following friendly & welcoming onsite classes free for anybody in Fountain Court:

2nd Floor Tuesdays 1.10-1.50pm (40 mins)  – Yoga with Lucy Keller

3rd Floor Thursdays 12.10-1.00pm (50 mins) – Yoga with Lucy Keller

  • Energise your day and feel better in mind & body, no afternoon-slump for you! After a short warm up there will be a series of guided postures to work your whole body (with clear instructions for all levels, beginners welcome) and a short relaxation to finish leaving you refreshed and ready for the rest of your day.
  • Just bring yourself – mats provided, or bring your own. Wear anything you can move comfortably in and any query just let us know.
  • 2nd floor (Tue) & 3rd floor (Thu) classes accessed via west staircase – classes only open to people who work in Fountain Court.
  • Last class of this scheduled run is 9th June, before we close these pop ups on Friday 10th June 2022.

Lucy Keller shares YinYan’s passion for giving people the tools to help them enjoy a healthy & happy life. Her own mindfulness & yoga practice lead to her becoming a teacher and she joins us from her role as Director of Mindfulness at United World College in Thailand. Kindness, non-judgement and curiosity are cornerstones of her teaching style and we’re delighted to have her with us at Fountain Court.

In addition to onsite classes Fountain Court occupiers also get free & unlimited access to our online classes. You can drop in to onsite classes without reserving your place but you can book in advance (and sign up for online classes) by:

  1. Go to https://www.yinyan.co.uk/yinyan-login/ and “Create Profile”
  2. Email [email protected] with your name & email (the one you used to create your account) & tell us who you work for in Fountain Court…we’ll finish setting up your account then you can book any online/onsite classes on the class timetable below.

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, 2+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!

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.
