Classes

***Update 19th August 2021 ***

ALL CLASSES ARE CURRENTLY FULLY BOOKED WITH WAITING LISTS RUNNING

On the 17th May 2021 I taught my first live class in over a year and it was so good to be back in the classroom!

I am currently on leave through August and classes restart on Monday 6th September 2021 with new classes in much nicer venues. Although all restrictions have been lifted I will not be filling the venues to capacity to give you all a little more space. Waiting lists are running for all classes so if you would like to join a list please email me. I am meticulously logging everyone’s bids for class on a spreadsheet and your original email expressing interest in joining a live class has been time and date stamped. This means that as and when more classes open you will automatically be closer to the top of the waiting list. I will only be running five classes initially and priority will be given to those students who have subscribed to the online yoga throughout the pandemic as without them I would not have a business to return to! Heartfelt thanks to everyone who subscribed over what was a very tough 13 months. The online material is still available at a cost of £15 per month and is free to use when you sign up for a class. You will be given the access code to the Home Practice page on the website once you have signed up.

We have a collective responsibility to make the classes as safe as possible, as the pandemic is not over, and to protect those more vulnerable members of our community. Can I emphasis that whilst I can take steps to make class as safe a place as I can, I cannot eradicate ALL risk, and ultimately, it is up to you to decide what level of risk is acceptable to you as an individual. I will be in touch before classes restart with information on what safety measures each venue has put in place which may include wearing a mask to class and when you leave (masks do not need to be worn during the class).

So, if you do decide to join a live class I ask that you:

  1. consider using a home test irrespective of your vaccination status before attending class
  2. wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before you leave home
  3. sanitise your hands on arrival
  4. arrive at class wearing a mask
  5. bring your own mat and any other equipment you may need including brick/block/belt/eye pillow/blanket/knee padding if at all possible
  6. place your mat as directed by me to ensure equal spacing
  7. once you have set up your space you may take off your mask but please wear it if you visit the bathroom
  8. before departing please replace your mask and refrain from close physical contact with anyone in class
  9. DO NOT ATTEND CLASS IF YOU ARE DISPLAYING ANY COVID SYMPTOMS IRRESPECTIVE OF YOUR VACCINATION STATUS
  10. as the new variants have symptoms very similar to a common cold such as sneezing/runny nose/cough please do NOT attend class if you have any cold like symptoms (Students with asthma who may have a cough/ excess mucous can of course attend as normal)
  11. sanitise your hands as you leave the venue
  12. wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water when you get home

I am not asking for vaccination status though it may be that each venue has its own criteria. We do not as yet know whether the vaccination offers full protection, prevents transmission, or will withstand any variants of the virus so I think it makes sense to take extra precautions. Personally I have both doses of the Astra Zeneca vaccine and will probably be required to have a booster in the autumn. I am self testing regularly.


Another option would be to come to see me in my new larger yoga space at home. This can be on a one to one basis or in pairs, or groups of three. If you would like help finding someone to share with I am more than happy to match you up. The advantages of sharing a lesson are you get some much needed social contact and the camaraderie of practicing together, it brings the cost down, and if you are suffering from lack of motivation it may just kick start you to get your mat out and practice with me online.
