STAYING SAFE IN CLASS

Please read the following guidance, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

I will be following the guidance from the Government, Sport England and the British Wheel of Yoga, to ensure that we can practice safely.

Please stay at home if you have any symptoms of Covid-19or if you have been recommended to self isolate or in quarantine by your GP.

If you, or someone you live with, are classed as vulnerable, do check with your doctor about whether it’s suitable for you to return to a yoga class.

Please remember bring your own mat and any props you would like. As we’re unable to share equipment, I’m not able to provide blocks, so a firm cushion, as well as your blanket would be helpful.

Please adhere to social distancing until you are able to enter the room.
Class sizes are capped to give us as much space as we can. We will be observing 2m social distancing at all times between mats, but will be able to observe as usual.

A mask can be worn whilst entering, exiting, or moving around the hall, including the toilets. You do not need to wear a mask when on your yoga mat practising, unless you wish to do so.

Covid 19 UpDate

april 2021
CLASSES ARE CONTINUING online, via Zoom, OR PRIVATE SESSIONS IN AN OUTDOOR SPACE

Plans are in place for getting back to face to face classes, both indoors and outdoors, from June onwards, but no confirmed dates yet.

Please book with me for your current yoga sessions, and check that I have your email address to we can keep in touch once we have a clearer picture of the way forward.

Hopefully we’ll be enjoying warmer weather & brighter mornings and lighter evening classes again soon!


From the British Wheel of Yoga:

1. The British Wheel of Yoga Chair has confirmed with our insurers – we may teach online classes until classes can be face to face again.

2. 29th March 2021 – Outdoor sports facilities will re-open and outdoor organised exercise, including yoga, will be allowed to continue.

The rule of 6 will be re-introduced for outdoor gatherings but this applies to social contact before and after classes and not during classes.

Social distancing will continue to apply during classes.

3. Carpeted rooms – as it is impossible to sanitise a carpet between classes, teaching in a carpeted room is for the moment not allowed.

Outdoor Yoga Classes

Fox Hill Stables, West Haddon
"I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.” - Henry David Thoreau

As the seasons change, outdoor Yoga is a great way to connect with nature, and enjoy the benefits of fresh air and the sounds around you as you practice and relax. Imagine laying under the trees in relaxation and looking at setting sun on the horizon or the moon and stars – magical!

Last year, I was delighted to teach at this amazing, outdoor space at Nurture Health & Fitness (above), just down the road from me in Northamptonshire.

Nestled in private woodlands, the path leads you down past the fire pit and purpose built wooden platform surrounded by trees and fields. The whole area helps you to feel peaceful and grounded.

More about Alice:

Alice worked as an Equine Veterinary Surgeon for 17 years before retiring from practice to establish her own health and fitness business in 2019.  

In addition to her qualifications in Personal Training and Nutrition, she also has a First Class Honours Degree in Human Psychology and is a Certified Behaviour Change Coach.

Alice specialises in helping people untangle the challenges and confusion associated with diet and exercise to form sustainable habits for a happier, healthier life. 

In her coaching practice Alice uses the Tiny Habits Method, pioneered by Professor B J Fogg at Stanford University.  This approach empowers people by starting with small changes that ultimately become transformative.  She has used this approach in her own life as she built her fitness from 5 minutes of Joe Wicks a day to running 100 mile mountain races.

She has created the Nurture Retreats Venue from a wood clearing at the bottom of her garden and works with local experts to provide a range of health and wellbeing experiences.
