PAYMENT

Class passes are valid for the current period only and cannot be refunded, carried over, transferred or extended.

Payment for classes is to be made prior to the class starting.

If we go into Lockdown again, group classes will shift to Zoom and we will finish the term online. Refunds or carrying classes will not be offered. As a self-employed yoga teacher, I thank you for your understanding.

If you miss a Group class, you can catch up on Zoom or I'll send you a class recording.

If you miss a live Zoom class, please email me for the link to the recording.

Workshop refunds will not be issued seven days before the event.

Retreat deposit is non-refundable. See below for full retreat T&Cs.

Workshop & retreat places may be transferred to another student (less your deposit).

GROUP CLASS BOOKING INFO DURING COVID-19

In accordance with the British Wheel of Yoga Guidelines

The Yoga Space

2m social distancing between mats

Most, if not all furniture removed

The rooms will be ventilated

Only one toilet available to use in each location. Please sanitise your hands before and after you leave the loo. Sanitising wipes & spray cleaner will be available for you to clean after you've used it

Each hall hirer (i.e me) is responsible for sanitising all touch points before & after class. 

Venue to be deep cleaned by the Hall on Sunday evenings

On arrival and departure please:

arrive no more than 10 minutes before class and maintain 2m distancing

arrive dressed and ready for your practice

wait outside until I call you to come in

leave your shoes outside as normal

wear clean socks which you can remove once you're on your mat

wear a face mask until you're on your mat; put it on when you leave the hall or go to the loo

sanitise your hands before you enter the space (there is sanitiser outside each hall, but bring your own to have by your mat if you need it)

clear the space quickly so that I can sanitise after class. Feel free to chat away once you're outside!

 

Yoga Equipment & All Your Other Stuff

Students to bring hand sanitiser to sanitise hands and feet (I will also have hand sanitiser available, but I think best to have your own next to your mat to avoid moving around the room)

Feel free to wear a face mask and/or face shield while you're practicing, but according to the British Wheel of Yoga, it is not a requirement.

Please bring all your own equipment: mat, 1-2 yoga blocks, 2 yoga bricks, yoga strap, blanket and optional bolster. I will not be lending out any props, but see below prices for new and used props.

Please only bring what you need into the space (e.g. leave handbag and unnecessary layers in the car) and place all your belongings in your 2m space

Take all your own rubbish with you e.g. used tissues

 

Your Teacher

In accordance with the British Wheel of Yoga, I am not intending to wear a face mask while teaching. It is also not a requirement to wear a face shield while teaching, but if anyone feels particularly strongly about me doing so, I will have one that I can put on.

I will not move around the room during the class

For the time being, I won't be giving any hands on adjustments

I will stay on my mat for the duration of the class and will provide verbal instructions from there.

 

COVID-19 SYMPTOMS & REPORTING

You must notify me immediately if:

Payment for Group Classes During Covid-19

If we go into Lockdown again, group classes will shift to Zoom and we will finish the term online. Refunds or carrying classes over will not be offered. As a self-employed yoga teacher, I thank you for your understanding.

HEALTH

Please complete the health form prior to your first class.

It is your responsibility to inform the teacher of you have any injuries or ailments that may affect your practice prior to the start of each class so that suitable modifications can be provided. Also see above *

Participation in group classes is at your own risk.

Participation in online classes (either live on Zoom or recorded) is entirely at your own risk. Any loss, damage, injury or any other mishap will not be the responsibility of the teacher. Don’t start any exercise or fitness program without carefully assessing your own state of health and physical condition including age, illnesses or injuries that you have had or are recovering from. Practice yoga mindfully and intelligently. If in doubt, seek advice from your GP. This is subject to UK law.
