You also need to agree with the below to participate:

I take responsibility for my own health and safety whilst participating in the yoga class, whether face to face or remote, and I also understand that it is my responsibility to:

 

  • check with my doctor if I have any difficulties or concerns about my ability to participate in the yoga class
  • advise the yoga tutor of any change in my medical information or ability to participate in the yoga class
  • follow the advice given by my doctor and/or yoga tutor remain on screen when participating in a remote yoga session

I understand that for any periods of time throughout a remote session during which I move off screen or are outside of the teacher’s view, whether intentionally or not; no liability will arise on the part of the teacher.

 

Why Yoga?

– to de-stress during coronavirus
– It improves flexibility, strength and balance if practiced regularly.
– It has potential impact on relaxation response and helps to relax.
– It has impact on internal organs and hormones.
– Could promote sleep quality.
– Helps with breathing.
– And many, many more – you need to experience it!

Orange Lotus Yoga Classes ON HOLD

It will come as no surprise that I have taken the decision to put all my yoga classes on hold. With heavy heart and sadness however in current situation I think it’s the best solution because I do have classes with vulnerable people. But I will not let the virus to defeat us! I am planning on scheduling two online classes to keep us sane

Gentle Hatha Yoga Mondays 7.30 PM – 9PM

Relaxation and mindfulness Wednesdays at 8PM – 9PM

Due to my insurance requirements both have to be live sessions. My students will receive the email on how to access them and the payment details.

During the restriction we are facing I also will add a free session on Tuesday night – that will be a space to chat and come together as yoga community, find out how you are, do you have any questions about practice, does anyone needs help. Free sessions will be available on Zoom, anyone can join. Will start with breathing practice to calm our mind.

Tuesdays 7-8PM

Also if you are staying at home with kids from next week I will be posting every day on Facebook some easy breathing practices for children and parents to keep us sane and calm

And most important stay healthy and safe!

Hopefully we can start again after Easter.

Worried about getting stuck at home with children? No ideas what to do with them? Do Yoga!
“Yogi Superhero” story book available on amazon now.

Watch the video for more ideas on how you can use it.

An introduction to yoga for children ages 3-8. A meaningful book which demonstrates mindful yoga poses and breathing exercise. This colour book tells the story which allows children to understand that we already are Yogi Superheroes, we just sometimes forget about it. It teaches basic poses which help to self-soothe and self-regulate in our crazy world and help with managing negative emotions. Easy to follow poses are perfect for a bedtime or morning yoga. Readers will learn techniques for relaxing the body and the mind. Beautiful illustrations are showing yoga poses and the connection with nature

Coronavirus COVID-19

As you will no doubt be aware, the potential for further spread of the corona-virus within the UK is highly likely, if not inevitable.

As such I ask that if you currently have any of the symptoms associated with Corona-virus, or if you have recently returned from any of the areas detailed on the government website that you do not attend yoga classes. Please see links below:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/common-questions/
https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-list-of-guidance

I understand that it may be disappointing that you are not able to come to yoga class; however, I am only taking this action to ensure the well-being of those that attend the yoga classes. Also, if you are in isolation, I can provide 1:1 class via Skype or group classes via zoom. If we are all put in quarantine, I am thinking of creating private Facebook group with some live feeds, some mindful movement and relaxation / meditation techniques so please like the page to see updates.
In case of quarantine I will email in advance with cancellation notice, so please keep an eye on the email.

What you can do to lower the risk of spreading the virus in the yoga class:

  • Bring your own mat
  • Antibacterial wipes will be provided in the class if you wish to wipe the mat before using it.
  • Bathrooms are equipped with soap and towels, please wash your hands before the class and after.
  • I will avoid hands on adjustments – and I know I rarely do that anyway, but I will eliminate it for the time being.
  • When you sneeze or cough, bin the tissue and wipe the hands.

What is also important to remember that being cautious and aware of spreading the disease and taking the personal responsibility for our actions is really crucial, however living in a fear is not a solution. And that’s a brilliant mindfulness practice on how to be aware of your feelings, emotions and thoughts but not being sucked into them and allow them to rule your life. I hope you will stay calm and healthy.
