Be sure to arrive no more than 5 minutes before class. There may be a class taking place before yours, so please take care not to disturb.
Can I eat before class... and shall I bring my water bottle ?

By working together we can maintain a healthy environment as we continue to do our best to stay well.
Proactive precautions in class
As the situation surrounding Covid-19 continues to unfold, we’ve decided to take a proactive approach to looking after each other in the studio. Part of being proactive is the addition of new guidelines for class etiquette, which we encourage everyone to follow:
- Please do not come to yoga if you are unwell
- BYO yoga mat is strongly recommended
- Please wash your hands before handling any yoga equipment
- Please make use of the handy towels to put down onto bolsters and blankets when you use them (alternatively bring your own hand towel)
- At the end of each class, please wipe down any studio mats you have used, using the cleaner provided.
- If you do need to blow your nose during class (due to hayfever etc), please bring your own wipes to use before handling any of the yoga equipment.
The studio will maintain a high standard of cleanliness with all wash basins and handrails washed down between each class and extra attention to cupboard and door handles in the Mathesons Bay studio.
