Following the recent Government announcement of a National Lockdown from Tuesday 5th January, Yoga Bodhi will be be closed for physical in studio classes.
All of our timetable is available on line & classes, courses & workshops will continue as usual.
According to the recent government announcements, it seems the predicted dates for private in-person classes at the studio is 12/04/2021, and indoor group classes may resume on 17/05/2021. This may be subject to change and does depend on further clarification from the government.
How to join our online classes using Zoom
You can book into classes on our website, our app, Mindbody or MoveGB up to 15 minutes before the class is due to start, no later.
If you are using an iPad or phone you will need to down load the Zoom App first, then just use the link in the class invite email we will send you. There is no need to register or subscribe to Zoom.
Sign up for classes just as you would normally through the website, app or MoveGB
For all 'Live Streamed' classes you'll receive a confirmation email from FitGrid soon after signing up
60 minutes before the class start time you’ll receive another email from FitGrid with a unique link to access the live streamed class on Zoom. This is the same as now, but it will not come from a Yoga Bodhi email address
If you can't see the email check in your junk, spam or promotions folders. Look for subject lines containing the phrase "live-stream link"
Click the link a few minutes before the class is scheduled to start
There is no waiting room, you will automatically join the class straight away
If you do not have the Zoom application on your device, you’ll be prompted to download it
Enjoy your class
Please ensure you switch on your video and audio.
There will be time to ask how everyone is, check on injuries etc before the class actually starts. The teacher will then mute everyone’s connection so that you can only hear them.
Returning to the studio - precautions we have taken
A deep clean of the studio and props has been carried out
All touch points, such as door handles, toilets and sinks, along with mats and props will be sanitised before and after each class
There will be no overlap of classes so that more students are not arriving whilst you are leaving
Class numbers limited to a maximum of 15 across both studios when the doors are open or 9 in the large studio and 6 in the smaller studio.
There will only be mats, foam blocks and bricks available to use, no fabric props like bolsters, blankets, straps and eye pillows
Reception staff will be wearing PPE
Classes at the studio - what you will experience
Classes must be booked in advance, there will be no drop in places available.
Ideally arrive and check in for class 5 -10 minutes before class
When you ring the bell you may have to wait a moment to enter so that we can maintain social distancing.
Please make sure you are wearing a face covering on arrival which can be removed once on your mat in the studio. Face covering to be worn coming into the reception area and toilets
Those of you that have the Test and Trace NHS COVID-19 App we ask you to please scan the Yoga Bodhi QR code on your phone. These QR codes are dotted around the studio.
You will be asked to sanitise your hands on arrival
We will be asking to take everyone's temperature before they join a class
There will be no changing facilities other than use of toilets and hand washing, so we ask that you come dressed ready for yoga
Props will be limited to mats and blocks, our recommendation is that you bring your own mat or any props you might like to use with you, if you have them
Any bags will need to be taken into the studio with you so please try to keep them to a minimum to help with space.
Please bring your own water bottle as there will be no glasses or tea available at this time.
Love Live Streaming Class Passes are not valid for studio classes
You can purchase a one off class at the studio drop in price or our usual class passes are valid for both studio and live streamed classes
Some Frequently asked questions
What if I haven’t received a link to the class?
Please check your junk mail, some class invites have been going to junk or spam folders. A possible way of avoiding this is to add Yoga Bodhi to your list of contacts.
If you haven’t received an email by 10 minutes before class then please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will resend it.
Can I still use my MoveGB membership for a Yoga Bodhi class online?
Yes. Just sign up for class in the same way as usual, however you will need to use our email link to join the class.
I still have a class pass I bought at the studio can I use it?
Yes. Existing class passes are still valid and you can carry on using them as long as they have not expired.
How do I get a discount for being a student or on low income?
At this time our 20% discount is not available. We are unable to apply it online. We have substantially reduced our prices to reflect the current climate and in recognition that students are not getting the same face to face class experience.
Can I call the studio?
We are currently working from home not at the studio. If you want to get in touch please email: email@example.com
Does my Love Live Streaming class pass have an expiry date?
No. These passes are however only valid for our online classes, they are not valid for classes at the studio.
What will happen to my Love Live Streaming class pass when the studio reopens?
Love Live Streaming class passes are not valid for classes at the studio. We will give you plenty of notice of our intentions around reopening the studio when that time comes. There will most certainly be a period while we transition where there are both online and studio based classes available, this should give you plenty of time to use any remaining classes on your pass.
