Yoga has been our pillar of support during this turbulent year – Not just the asana and meditation practice, but also for keeping a sense of routine, healthy habits, community, and our connection with those who share this with us. Our priority for each and every one who joins us for their practice at Heather Yoga is that you feel very much part of a community and our journey.
Reopening in September, (although for such a brief time) really uplifted all of us in the teaching team and it was so amazing to see many of you back at our yoga home equally as much as those who chose to stay online.
As we now exit this second lock down and West Yorkshire moves into Tier 3, we understand local gyms can reopen but there is still a ban on indoor exercise classes. Whilst we get clarification on government announcements & developments on where Yoga falls within this and how best to operate, we will keep our services online. We do expect things will change again in the New Year; there are many different bodies and yoga associations who are currently campaigning for Yoga and Pilates to be allowed to take place within tier 3. This weekend I spoke to our local MP Philip Davis about what we can do and to let him know about UK Yoga Collective who are campaigning for the rules to be changed around Yoga. If you would like more information about this and choose to take part in sending a letter to your local MP to help put yoga on the agenda, then please follow this link: www.ukyogacollectivecampaign.com/
Back in the Autumn we invested in making our studio COVID secure so that students can practise whilst adhering to social distancing measures in a ventilated and safe space. We are confident that our procedures promote the safety and wellbeing of our community. So, for now, we sit patiently, wait to for the green light, and continue to roll as we have been doing with a full schedule of incredible online classes, workshops and courses! And of course keep you posted on any updates & changes.
We feel hopeful for the future together and have such an amazing and exciting array of events to look forward to with so many talented teachers in 2021.
