Covid-19: Staying Safe in Class

It's wonderful to be able to share yoga in person with you again. 

Your safety is my priority, and I'll be following all the latest guidance from the Government, Sport England and British Wheel of Yoga to ensure that you're provided with a safe space to practice yoga.  

Please read the guidance below, and if you have any questions do get in touch.

Outdoor Classes

Outdoor classes are being held in Great Gidding, in my garden or in the Rec Field. 

Safety Measures - Outdoor Classes...

Please stay at home if you have any symptoms of COVID-19

Maximum people per class: 5 for garden yoga or 8 in the Rec Field. (Sport England and the British Wheel of Yoga have confirmed that yoga classes are exempt from the maximum 6 people rule, where classes comply with Government guidance regarding group sport activities). 

2m social distancing at all times.

Hand sanitiser is provided.

Please bring your own mat and props as we're unable to share equipment. 

No access to toilets (sorry!).

Payment by bank transfer is preferred, to avoid handling of cash.

As places are limited, payment in advance is required to secure your place.

NHS Test & Trace...

Your contact information will be passed to NHS Test & Trace if requested by them. No information will be provided to NHS Test & Trace other than contact phone number and attendance date/time. 

You may request to opt out. See NHS Test & Trace Guidance here

Cancellations...

Refunds or class credits are given if you provide at least 48 hours notice (or if your space can be filled), if you cancel due to symptoms of Covid-19 or if the class is cancelled due to weather conditions. 

Indoor Classes

Indoor classes re-opened on 5th August 2020, in Great Gidding Village Hall. 

We'll return to other venues as soon as they are open/deemed safe in line with Government guidance. 

Safety Measures - Indoor Classes...

Please stay at home if you have any symptoms of COVID-19

Maximum 8 people per class  (Sport England and the British Wheel of Yoga have confirmed that yoga classes are exempt from the maximum 6 people rule, where classes comply with Government guidance regarding group sport activities). 

2m social distancing at all times.

As there will be 2m distancing, you aren't required to wear a mask unless you wish to do so.

I will be teaching from the stage, so that I can get a clear view of everyone without the need to move around the room. 

There will be no breathing exercises which require us to breathe out with 'force' or through an open mouth e.g. sighing the breath through an open mouth, 'woodchopper' breath etc. 

Please bring your own mat and props, as we're unable to share equipment. (Ask me about ordering kit at wholesale prices).

Please arrive in your kit - avoid using the toilets to change.

Please use the sanitiser provided at entry/exit points.

Windows will remain open before and during class to ensure ventilation.

Internal doors will remain open where possible to minimise contact. If door handles are used these will be sanitised with the spray provided in the hall.

The venue will be cleaned between classes.

I'd recommend that you wipe your mat with sanitiser or disinfectant after class or when you get home.

Payment by bank transfer is preferred, to avoid handling of cash. (If you are only able to pay by cash please bring the exact money as I won't have the cash tin with me). 

As places are limited, payment in advance is required to secure your place.

A copy of the full Covid-19 risk assessment is available to students upon request.
