Studio policies and practices

Your safety is important to us, the FAQ below includes our COVID-19 policies and will guide you through being open at Alert Level 1 & 2.

In conjunction with Ministry of Health guidelines please do not come to class if you are showing any symptoms or cold or flu. We look forward to seeing you when you are feeling better.

The QR code is on display at the studio door and inside reception. Please use this. We open the studio 15 minutes before your class begins. No entry to class once it has started, your teacher will sign you in when you arrive. Please use the hand sanitiser provided in reception and by the bathrooms before attending class.

Book your class

We will now only accept online bookings for classes, and full contact details of email and phone number must be included for contact tracing requirements. Book online via our booking software Serenity.  In response to COVID-19 all classes will require pre booking and pre payment online, as we don’t have EFTPOS. 

Cancel your class

ALERT LEVEL 1: Online bookings can be cancelled up to 1 min before class start time during Level 1 (How to self manage cancellations on Serenity read here ). After that time email Please include your first and last name and the name and time of the class you are cancelling.

ALERT LEVEL 2: Online bookings can be cancelled up to 1 hour before class start time during Level 2. If you fail to show up for class you may be charged $15 if your space has prevented someone else from attending, as we operate with a maximum of 12 students at Alert Level 2.

Physical Distancing

ALERT LEVEL 1: capacity is 26 max per general class, 14 for prenatal yoga, 12 for Seniors yoga and 16 for Restorative Yoga.

ALERT LEVEL 2: will be working with 2 metre space between each student, this means a maximum of 12 students and 1 teacher.

Teacher student relationship

We consider this to be a professional relationship. Please be respectful and courteous to all staff members.

Cell phones

We ask that you put cell phones on silent (not vibrate) and keep them away from your yoga mat, stored in your bag or the cubbies.

Mats and equipment

ALERT LEVEL 2: We remove the use of shared props. We ask you leave your bags with your shoes in reception, the shared cubbies are not available for use. 

We highly recommend using your own props in general, especially yoga mats, blankets and if you have them blocks.

Special Conditions & Injuries

Please do not come if you are unwell. Anyone with serious medical conditions or injuries should consult their GP prior to beginning or resuming a yoga practice, and especially anyone that is immune compromised must get clearance from their health professional before attending a group class.  Advise teacher of any current conditions or injuries prior to the start of class. 1-1 private sessions are available as an alternative to joining a group class.
