IMPORTANT INFORMATION

BOOK YOUR CLASSES – be sure to book into your preferred class as soon as you can.  You can review your schedule by logging into your account via our website.

CANCELLING A CLASS – if you cannot attend a class you have booked please cancel your booking as soon as you can or, at the latest, 2 hours before the class starts. This gives the next person on the waitlist, who will receive an automated email, enough time to travel to class.

WHEN TO ARRIVE – Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your class is scheduled to start to ensure you are signed in and ready to start on time. Please ensure the teacher signs you in upon arrival. Arriving late is distracting for the teacher and fellow students.

Store your belongings – Place all personal items, including your shoes and your mobile phone, in one of the pigeon holes inside our locker room for safekeeping and to prevent any obstructions on the floor (the locker room is located in the back left corner when you enter the studio).

Note 1: Shoo your shoes – Practice is done barefoot or in socks. To ensure the space is clean and safe for everyone, please store your shoes in the locker room.

Note 2: Mobile phones are not required in class and should be turned off or on silent and placed in your locker. Should you need your phone for any reason, please notify your teacher so they may be prepared for any interruption.

Set up your mat and props – grab a mat and any required props (as indicated by your teacher) from the storage area to the left of the alter. Your teacher will have their own mat set up with the props needed for that session. Props and equipment are provided by the studio, although you are welcome to bring your own if you choose. If you have knee trouble, we recommend doubling up with two mats for extra cushioning.

Align your mat with the floor markers – Blue mat markers are visible on the floor and skirting board. They indicate two configurations. Once your teacher indicates which configuration is being used, line up your mat against the appropriate marker. This helps ensure you and your fellow students have the space you need to practice. Position props in front of your mat to allow yourself free movement to your left and right side.

INJURY & ILLNESS – If you have an injury, illness or other condition that may affect your practice, kindly let your teacher know. Each pose can be modified to suit your body’s requirements.
If you are experiencing any physical discomfort during or after class, please inform your teacher immediately.

ARE YOU PREGNANT? – The Beginners’ Yoga Course is not designed for pregnant women. Many poses are inadvisable. If you are pregnant, we recommend you attend our Prenatal Yoga Course, which you can begin after the first trimester (12 weeks).

COVID HYGIENE – Canberra Yoga Space follows public health advice to maintain a Covid Safe environment.

Please ensure you wash or sanitise your hands before entering and after leaving the studio. Hand Sanitiser has been provided on the front bench and in the locker room. Please be sure to clean any borrowed/shared props, mats and blocks with the spray or wipes provided. At this time we prefer you use your own mat. It can be placed over the top of a studio mat for more cushioning.

Please do not attend class if you are sick, symptomatic or a close contact of someone with Covid19.

If you have any more questions about the course, don’t hesitate to EMAIL THE STUDIO.
