We are pleased to be allowed by the Government to return gradually to face to face training from August 2020!

For your own safety, there will be new measures implemented in order to comply with the social distancing measures established by the government and to help prevent the spread of covid -19.


Some of these measures include: 

  • enhanced cleaning procedures at the studio

  • the presence of an extra sink at the entrance of the studio, to be able to wash hands before and after the session

  • limited numbers of practitioners when exercising indoors in accordance with the indoor space available

  • specific measures when exercising outdoors

  • placing the mats at a safe distance

  • a one-way system of movement of people at the studio

  • not sharing yoga mats, blocks or other equipment

  • not sharing food

  • not offering physical adjustments at the class

  • keeping good ventilation at the class

  • if a teacher or student needs to self isolate because they have symptoms or tested positive, they will be able to join us online in the specified period


We continue to monitor carefully the evolution of the situation. Any measures that the Government and the Accrediting Bodies will require from us to help keep everyone safe during their training will be included in the covid -19 risk assessment and will be implemented to the best of our abilities.

We are really happy to be able to meet face to face and to be able to support everyone on their yoga journey to becoming qualified Yoga Teachers. If you have any questions regarding our new protocols and procedures please feel free to  CONTACT US
