For a Safer & Sustainable Studio
Updated Guidance From July 19th
Please only attend our studios if you feel well. If you feel unwell for any reason, then please stay at home, follow appropriate guidance, and we’ll see you when you feel well again. You can also access our online classes and on demand class service.
The studio itself will be thoroughly cleaned & disinfected regularly – all classes are scheduled allowing time to clean and prepare the studio for the next session. This will also minimise contact between departing & arriving clients. It may be necessary at times to queue outside the studio before entering.
The installed automatic hand sanitisers will remain around the studios
We will be keeping our screens at reception in place.
Floor stickers have been removed so please use your self guidance to appropriately distance yourselves.
Studio spaces will still remain limited so please follow the 4 hour cancellation policy to help us open spaces for other yogis. Workshops & Sound Baths have a 24 hour cancellation policy.
Windows at Lee will be open. Doors at Catford will be open. Hot studio uses infrared heating (no hot air distribution) + fresh air vent for air exchange.
Wearing masks at the studio is no longer compulsory but we ask that you please remain wearing them when moving around the studio and whilst away from your mat.
Tea pots will be back in use for a pre or post class cup of tea. Please use the hand sanitisers provided before and after use.
We will have a selection of drinks available in our fridges for purchase (cans of water and coconut water etc.)
Use the water fountain for refills, but bring your own bottles
Please where possible arrive dressed to practice
Changing rooms will be open, please be aware of distance to other students when using them
We would like to encourage you to wear a face mask until you are seated at your mat, however this is not compulsory
Please remove your shoes and place in the shoe holders on arrival
We would like to encourage keeping socks on until at your mat
Use the automatic hand sanitiser when entering the studio
Check in at reception
Place your mat with social distance and other yogis in mind.
You will be able to spray clean your mat with our sprays and blue paper towels, please bin them after use
Once again please sanitise hands with the automatic sanitisers across the reception and studio spaces
If possible, please bring your own mat and props
If you haven’t got your own we have a few options for you, listed below
Hire studio mats will be available for rent at £1.50 per class, these will be free for members but where possible we would highly encourage you to bring your own mat
Yoga Matters Eco Yoga Mats & Liforme Mats will be available to purchase at reception
Cork bricks will be available for purchase at reception
Bricks will be available to use, along with Pilates Balls & Bands – We ask that you disinfect before and after use
Bolsters – please bring a pillow case to cover the bolster if you’d like to use a studio one. They are available to hire also
Blankets will be removed from the studio, we will look at how this works over the coming week
Your teacher might move around the studio a little more. If you would rather keep distance from the teacher, please make the teacher or reception aware before the class.
Our new capacity is Lee 25 mats, Catford 25 mats, Catford Hot – 12 mats
Due to limited space in the studios, we ask that if you make a booking for a class, that you stick to it. This allows for as many students as possible to practice
Bookings will have to be made in advance. There will be no walk-ins allowed. This is to provide track and trace information if required
If you haven’t got an account with us already please create it before arriving to the studio, the reception staff won’t be able to help creating it for you at this time to reduce time spent at reception desk per client
Cancellations must be made 4 hours prior to the start of class. Late cancellations or no shows will result in a lost class pass or additional charge to members of £5 which will be automatically added to your account. We are really hoping to avoid all of this, but with limited mat spaces and people keen to practice we will have to be strict on cancellation policy and work together to avoid no showing for classes. Teachers are also reliant on student numbers attending for rate of pay
Please arrive on time for your class, we won’t be able to admit any late arrivals and they will be treated as late cancellation
At this time we would ask you to not arrive more than 15 minutes before the class start
