HOW IT WORKS
If you are coming to one of our Online classes you’ll get an email twenty minutes before the class starts inviting you to join the meeting. Please make sure you’re in at least five minutes before the class starts. And please make sure that the email in your MindBody account is your up-to-date one (you may have set it up several years ago with your long-forgotten hotmail account), as this is the one we’ll send the class invite to.
We find that Zoom works best and is easiest to use on a laptop (and of course the screen is bigger), but tablets are also good. Set it up in advance so that you the teacher will be able to see your mat and you’re good to go.
If you wish to join in person, please book early as spaces are currently limited to meet social distancing guidelines.
Studio Health and Safety protocols.
What we are doing to keep everyone safe:
- We ask all students to self monitor for symptoms. If you’re not feeling well, please don’t come to the studio.
- We will be taking Students’ temperature as you enter the studio. Teachers will also take their temperature before teaching the class!
- Students will be required to sanitise their hands upon entering and exiting the premises.
- Please wear a mask as you enter the premises and in the stairwell
- Students and teachers aren’t expected to wear a face mask or gloves into the studio or during class but they can if they wish to do so.
Social Distancing precautions
- We will limit the number of people in class to 9 students and 1 teacher.
- No waiting for class within the stairwell. Please wait outside the front door (maintaining social distance of course)
- Teachers will let students into the studio 10 minutes before the class begins so that students don’t need to touch the door handles. The door will be closed a minute before class begins.
- Separate storage for belongings will be provided but everyone will be asked to bring as little as possible with them to the studio.
- Markers on the floor will indicate the appropriate space to put down mats to maintain social distance . Please fill the room from the furthest away point.
Cleaning protocol of the space
- High touch areas will be cleaned after every class.
- Toilets and handwashing facilities will be open and will be cleaned daily (there will be additional wipes available and hand sanitiser)
- Teachers will sanitise their hands before and after class.
- Teachers will not offer any hands on adjustments.
- Some windows will be open to allow natural ventilation.
Studio mats and props
- Please bring your own mats and props to class if you can.
- If you are a Member we have prop loan available.
What we need from you:
