Hello Yogi

We would like you to know that our yoga centre is such a safe space for you to come and explore your practice in, at any time 🙂  Right now with the Health & Safety protocols we’ve implemented in the building and changes to our operations, we’ve exceeded the Government guidelines and yet the shala still feels as beautiful and special as ever  – even with the new set up!

Following this week’s announcements, we appreciate that there could be a little confusion as to what the new guidelines mean in terms of the application of different households meeting indoors and the rule of 6. However, we are very pleased to confirm that Heather Yoga can continue to remain open and that these new restrictions do not apply to organised exercises classes held in Covid-secure venues such as ourselves. Let us continue to be your place of space & sanctuary in this very strange world! We know from those who have already joined us since reopening how much even the process of coming down to the space and stepping away from home has been hugely beneficial. And the wonderful feedback also includes how clean, airy, supportive and spacious the centre is, and just how flipping good it is to be back!

Read some of the feedback here:

“A big well done to everyone that has put in the effort to allow a return to the studio. It feels well organised and a safe space. It was sooo good to be back.” – David
“Its so great to be back. Thank you for all for all your hard work making it happen. Its so safe” – Rachel
“It has been great to be back in the shala.  Everyone was so welcoming, and it’s really well organised.  I’m continuing with a few on-line classes but it is so much better to get to the studio for a real live class” – Kathryn

Please note that with the latest government advise, we will now also be supporting an NHS track and trace from next week. You will need to scan the QR code from our poster at the entrance using the NHS COVID-19 app which you can download onto your phone.

Reminders for STUDIO Classes

  • Please make sure to carefully select ‘STUDIO’ when booking your in-person place from the timetable. If you have booked ‘ONLINE’ by mistake when wishing to attend the STUDIO – contact us so that we can amend the booking. There’s 10 spaces available and we want to make sure there is space for everyone wishing to join us.
  • Socks must be worn. If you are coming to class in sandals or flip-flops, without wearing socks please bring a pair with you to place on before entering the shala. This is very important as part of our COVID hygiene policy.
  • Please make to remove shoes before entering the shala and place them on once you are out of the shala doors. No shoes on the yoga floor!
  • At this time we ask that students visiting the space are prompt with arriving for class and also leaving the building once the session has finished. You are most welcome to use the cafe if its open after your session but we recommend you book ahead with Dandelion Cafe to reserve a table and maintain the 2 metres apart ?
