September 2021 update: I have been busy developing and running training courses over the summer so am returning this year a little later than normal. All my general adult yoga classes will resume from w/c Monday 27th September with the same timetable as previously. I still have no access to the previous venues I used for pregnancy and mother&baby yoga classes so for the time being am unable to offer these.
Assuming all restrictions remain lifted the classes will operate similar to how they did pre-pandemic with the option to pre-pay classes for a certain time period or to attend on a casual basis. I have now opened bookings for these sessions for those of you are pre-booking just click on this link: book now
I will be running my classes on a month by month basis, rather than termly or half termly. The first four week period will run from w/c 27th September to w/c 18th October.
I will at least for the time being be continuing to livestream these classes as before, with the Well Woman class remaining fully online and will upload one recording per week to the facebook group (in addition to the Well Woman class which will only be accessible to those enrolled on this class).
The closed facebook group is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/443302236444712 where the links to the recordings will be available. It's a closed group so please request to join if you are not already a member. This group will only be open to people who are currently attending or enrolled on my classes.
The cost structure will be as follows and again I will monitor this - please select the correct category to pay and amend the amount to pay yourself once you have chosen your option. If you are planning to attend more than one online class per week just select one of them.
One in person class per week for the four week period pre-booked: £35 Please select the class you are most likely to attend but you can switch around sessions if you need to to make up the four sessions. You can subsititute your in-person class for an online class at no extra cost, either the one you would normally attend or another one to make up but it need to be during the four week period. Please make sure you have the meeting IDs from the closed facebook group if you think this is likely. I don't offer carry overs to the next payment period if you can't make them all nor do I accept part block payments. If you are wishing to attend more than one in person class per week then please do a separate booking for each class. I am no longer accepting cheques if you are paying in person in class.
One in person casual class: £10 per class. If you are new to my classes please book your first class online so that I get your health details. You can amend the payment amount from the block fee to £10. After your first class you can continue to pay online or in cash.
One online class per week for the four week period pre-booked: £35. Please select the online class you are most likely to attend but you can switch around sessions if you need to to make up the four sessions. I don't offer carry overs if you can't make them all to the next payment period nor do I accept part block payments. Please ensure that you have joined the facebook group so that you can access the meetings. Each class has a different meeting ID. They are the same as previously used if you have already been attending these classes.
Unlimited online access during the four week period: £45. Please just select one of the online classes knowing you can attend whichever combination you wish. Please ensure that you have joined the facebook group so that you can access the meetings. Each class has a different meeting ID. Please ensure that you have joined the facebook group so that you can access the meetings.
A combination of in person and online classes:
a) One in person class and one online (or equivalent number) per week during the four week period: £50 Just book the in person class you are most likely to attend then amend the payment amount. Please ensure that you have joined the facebook group so that you can access the meetings. Each class has a different meeting ID.
b) One in person class per week and unlimited online access during the four week period: £55 Just book the in person class you are most likely to attend then amend the payment amount. Please ensure that you have joined the facebook group so that you can access the meetings. Each class has a different meeting ID.
Please use the Book Now tab or this link to access my booking system.
Please see Classes pages for details for each class type.
For in person students All sessions can be pre-booked or attended casually.. Students need to tick the disclaimer on their booking form to state they will only attend in person if they are symptom-free and not required to isolate and agree to comply with the protocols laid out in the Yogaworks risk assessment should restrictions be re-imposed as well as any requirements of the locations where the sessions take place.
Social distancing and masks are no longer required for the classes, but you can of course choose to wear a mask if you wish. I will be monitoring the situation for each class and may need to close the sessions to casual bookings if I judge any class is getting too crowded. I will endeaveour to keep the hall as well ventilated as the weather allows.
All communal areas will be regularly cleaned and gel dispensers available both inside and outside the yoga hall. A track and trace system will operate requiring me to make a note of all students attending each class for at least 21 days.
For online students Please make sure you choose the online category when you book! Once you book I will be inviting you, if you are not already a member, to join a closed group. I post any changes to class links on these groups as well as recordings weekly. So please contact me if you haven't received an invite.
You will need a Zoom meeting ID and password to join the classes. You can access these on the relevant facebook group or just e mail me and I can send them to you. PLEASE DON'T SHARE THE LINKS WITH ANYONE ELSE.
Zoom is free for you to use. You will ideally need a laptop with a camera or a phone. A speaker can help you to hear me more easily. I will mute everyone once the class has started but you will have a chance to talk to me and others at the end if you wish. There is a chat facility too where you can type some comments/questions.
If it's your first time using Zoom please test your equipment first. Please make every effort to join on time as it's quite distracting to admit people in when I am already teaching - but I do understand that equipment fails so will do my best to let you in. Sometimes internet connections go down so if you 'leave' the class whilst it's running again I will do my best to let you back in, but sometimes you may have to wait a few minutes.
Create a lovely calm space in your home where you won't be disturbed. Try to have as much space as possible around your mat. Ideally a wall and/or chair nearby and a yoga/birthing ball if you have one. A belt or scarf as well as a couple of blocks would also be great. Any spare cushions/bolsters will help you to be more comfortable during your relaxation.
I am also continuing to offer private and small group sessions, including workplaces, as well as preparation for labour workshops so please get in touch about these.
See you soon in person or online again!
