COVID-19: yoga & chanting update
yoga has so much to offer, especially important when we are challenged and the pandemic of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is proving especially challenging to so many.
By bringing us back into balance mentally, physically and emotionally, yoga and Vedic chanting can support us in this moment of need
Currently England is in 'Lockdown' which means all Yoga classes & Vedic Chanting classes will be held on Zoom.
From May 17:
exercise classes: can return to halls, government restrictions allowing. I will offer a mixture of Zoom and hall yoga classes from this date to meet all your needs - see below for more details
chanting: sadly, the government has not as yet, released a roadmap to allow singing/chanting classes to resume in indoor spaces and therefore Vedic Chanting classes will remain on Zoom for the foreseeable future.
Summer term 2021; May 3 - July 15
Monday yoga - will remain on Zoom.
Tuesday yoga - will move from Zoom on 18 May to Christchurch hall
Wednesday yoga - will move to Zoom on 19 May to RISE Old School Room hall
Thursday yoga - will remain on Zoom.
Tuesday chanting - will remain on Zoom
Physical - when current restrictions are lifted/halls are warm
teaching physical classes will have some differences to pre COVID-19.
Doors and windows will need to be open &/or face masks worn, plus sanitising precautions will be put in place.
No yoga equipment will be provided to minimise exposure to COVID-19 - you will therefore need to bring your own mat and sitting equipment i.e. blocks/meditation stools etc if needed.
If there is another lockdown or restriction of use of community hall spaces due to COVID-19, the physical classes will have to revert to Zoom for the remainder of the term.
I will offer a free 1 to 1 session to everyone assisting with the transition over to Zoom.
I will be unable to offer refunds/credits/transfers regardless of circumstance - I do hope you understand - thank you.
Happily I can teach current, returning and new students.
If you are new to my yoga classes and wish to enrol in a Zoom class, I will meet you via Zoom prior to the class to enable me to discuss your health needs.
" The Zoom yoga classes are so much more enjoyable and powerful than i expected.
In fact, in some ways, I find them more powerful than when we meet, maybe because I am able to put 100% into the practice - physically, mentally and from the heart - it is much more of a meditative practice."
"I want to tell you that I really look forward to your online yoga classes every week and feel better for them.
It's easier than going out to go to yoga!
We are very lucky that you come into our homes every week to give your expertise,
so thank you very much"
