WE’RE KEEPING IT SAFE AND CLEAN

1 - We have had a professional deep clean at the studio, lobby and other public areas.

2 - The studio received a fresh coat of paint and updates to remove clutter and create more open spaces.

3 - We will be wiping down all surfaces and touching points before and after each class.

4 - Between each class we will be steaming the floor.

5 - We will provide wipes in the toilets so each person can wipe down the seat and handle before and after each use.

6 - We will have hand sanitiser available in several areas around the studio.

7 - We will not be taking any cash payments.

8 - We will monitor the entrance and exit of students to keep the distance guidelines. 

STUDIO CLASS ATTENDANCE PROCESS

1 - If you are not feeling well or if you have been in contact with someone who has shown signs of or had COVID-19, please stay home. We will be here when it is time for you to safely return.

2 - Book your class in advance. We will have limited spots for each class, and they must be reserved prior to showing up. Classes will be available to book on 7 day rolling basis. This allows you time to reacclimatise to the environment and give others a chance to get in for their much-needed practice. You can take as many live stream classes as you like.

3 - PLEASE NOTE: In case you are in waiting list keep an eye on your emails and if you are not able to attend the class, cancel it asap. This will give everyone a chance to practice as much as possible.

4 - Only bring the necessary items into the studio. Leave bags, and extras at home/car. All you need for your practice is your yoga mat, towel, and water. The cubicles in the changing rooms will not be open for use. You can refill your bottle of water but we ask you to keep it to a minimum. 

5 - IBHY team will be wearing masks. You are welcome to wear a mask if you feel more comfortable with it, although it is not mandatory. 

6 - Rentals will not be available during this time.

7 - Studio blocks and straps will not be available for use. Please bring yours. 

8 - Yoga mats will not be available for rental, only for purchase.

9 - Studio opens 15 minutes prior to class and closes 15 minutes after. When you arrive at the studio, if there is no one at the desk, we are not open just yet. Please wait until someone from IBHY team is there to welcome you.

10 - Remove shoes in the lobby, this will minimise crowding in the changing rooms and ease the process. 

11 - Please do not enter the building until the person in front of you has removed their shoes and gone into the changing room. 

12 - Please do  not enter the practice room until the person in front of you has put their mat down.

13 - Walk into the practice room and put your mat down on a marked spot. The door into the studio will also be propped open for you. Set your mat and towel down at the furthest spot possible in the room. Take a seat or lay down on your mat to wait for class to begin. Always go to the furthest spot available to prevent the need for others to walk by you to get to their spot.

14 - Toilets are available if needed. Be mindful of distance requirements. Showers will not be accessible during this time.

15 - Once the class is finished the teacher will open the doors to minimise touching. 

16 - After the person closest to the door will roll up their mat and exit. Once that individual is heading out of the changing room, the next person can leave the room. 

WE ARE SO EXCITED TO HAVE YOU BACK IN THE STUDIO.

WE WILL CONTINUE THESE MEASURES TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS AND OUR IBHY TEAM.

WE FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT WE ARE AT OUR HEALTHIEST WHEN WE ARE PRACTICING OUR YOGA ON AND OFF THE MAT!
