  • A distance of 1.5m between each other at all times
  • Hand sanitisation on arrival
  • Masks to be worn at all times unless you are breathing heavily. Once you are on your socially distanced mat you may remove your mask during vigorous activity, then please return your mask before leaving your mat.

General Rules & Procedures for Class

Check-In Procedures

Masks

  • Students & staff are required to wear masks at all times, unless the level of physical exertion requires heavy breathing (staff can remove masks if filming). Once you are on your socially distanced mat you can remove your mask during exercise, then reapply at the end of class before stepping off your mat.
