Keeping you safe after COVID-19

We’ve always valued safety in class. We try to teach only what is appropriate for each student and emphasize the real goals of yoga (equanimity, insight and peace of mind) rather than outright gymnastic flexibility. So you can be sure we have  a comprehensive protocol to ensure you remain safe in class and comply with all government health guidelines for indoor classes.

Current Restrictions

  • We’ve streamlined the timetable to minimize traffic in reception areas
  • Book early online to secure a space and save money (it now costs more to pay over the counter for a casual class)
  • Bring your own mat. New mats are on sale for only $30 in a range of colours. You can now store your mat at Manly
  • Please bring a towel or cover to use studio props. We have disinfectant wipes in every studio.
  • Please wash hands before and after class (or use santizer on reception desks.)
  • Please don’t attend class if you have cold/cough or CV symptoms and go get tested.
  • Our teachers will not teach if they have a cough, cold or flu-like symptoms

    Is that it’s all about getting real on your values and priorities.
