Covid-19 Risk Assessments for in-person Yoga classes

COVID-19 Update Statement: September 2021 – applies to ALL in-person classes

In line with current Government guidance, face coverings are still advised in crowded or enclosed areas but not in the class itself. 

The windows/door will be opened for fresh air and the class numbers are limited for safe distancing. 

Hand sanitiser and mat cleaning spray will be provided for use before and after the class. 

DO NOT attend class if you have symptoms (fever, new continuous cough, loss of sense of taste/smell) or test positive for COVID-19, or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive. 

Participants with a continuous cough will be asked to leave the class.

New COVID-19 Delta variant symptoms include: 

  • blocked/runny nose
  • sore throat
  • Headache
  • Lethargy
  • Diarrhoea
  • Hay fever type symptoms

Participants will need to bring their own equipment to class as this cannot be loaned: yoga mat, blanket, cushion/block, water bottle, warm clothing etc.
