We are so excited to welcome you back to the studio to practise. The studio comes alive when people are in it - nothing can quite compare to the collective energy of a group class.

 

We can understand why some yogis may be apprehensive about returning to the studio - we would like to reassure you that we are doing absolutely everything we can so that you can practise with confidence. The safety and wellbeing of our TYP family will always be our priority. We have undertaken a comprehensive risk assessment and have updated our health and safety protocols to ensure the safety of all students, teachers and staff.

 

Below is an outline of some of the measures we are implementing to protect our TYP family. We will be constantly reviewing the protocols we have in place to ensure they are in line with the latest guidelines provided by the UK Government and international best practice.

 

Although a few things may be different when you return to the studio, we can guarantee we will be teaching you the best yoga classes we can! We can’t wait to see you safely back on the mat in person.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Do I need to pre-book?

 

As class capacities are very limited due to ensure social distancing, we recommend that you book in-studio classes in advance. You can do this via the Mindbody app. We are now able to accept walk ins, but we still recommend booking class in advance to avoid disappointment.

 

We have extended our class cancellation window from 2 hours (terms and conditions can be found here). If you cancel a class less than 2 hours before class begins, this qualifies as a late cancellation. If you have a class pack, you will lose that class on your pack and cannot use it again. If you have an unlimited membership or intro offer, you will be restricted from booking into any classes for 48 hours. These same restrictions and penalties apply for class absences.

 

Should I come to class if I don’t feel well?

 

If you are unwell or believe that you have been exposed to Covid-19, please do not come to class. If you suspect Covid-19, you will need to follow NHS guidelines and isolate for the required number of days before you consider booking a class at the studio.
