Cleaning


Unwind Yoga Studio will continue with rigorous cleaning procedures. 


If there is a COVID-19 case in the studio, we will follow the PHE Guidance – COVID-19 Cleaning in non-healthcare settings while cleaning all areas of the studio.


We will carry out regular cleaning of high-contact touch points throughout the premises. 





Reception Areas


Hand sanitisers will be on offer throughout the studio, please use them when you come in and before you leave.

Please wash your hands following WHO guidelines.

We will ensure that social distancing remains in place .

Queue management – please follow the spacing markings on the floor, and distance when outside the entrance. 





Toilets


We ask students not to use the toilet unless absolutely necessary. Please ensure you use the toilet before you come to class.


Sanitisation spray and single use tissue will be available for students' use for touch points. 





The Studio


Social distancing guidelines must be followed, and floor markings will be made on the floor to show the area for individuals and ensure the safe flow of students into and out of the studio.

There will be a minimum of a 15-minute window in between classes, so no ‘waiting around’ in groups. 


We are asking every student to bring their own mats and props. Any equipment that is used at the studio will be cleaned before and after use. Any props that cannot be cleaned easily such as bolsters will be stored for 72 hours after use before being used again.

All classes and events will be by pre-booking only, no walk-ins or cash payments are allowed. 


Social distancing and cleanliness will be promoted by the teachers at the beginning and throughout 
classes. 


Group classes will be organised in a series of formations to comply with social distancing, with appropriate spacing between participants monitored by the teacher throughout the class. 
The teacher will also guide you through arrival and leaving procedures.

The studio will be ventilated before and after class. We are lucky to be able to open the front door and windows in the back to get fresh air flow throughout, we also have fresh air vents and fans and are not re-circulating stale air.

There is no space to store belongings, please bring only what you need for class.

Students must not cluster in groups before/after sessions. 





First Aid


Although there may be heightened concerns around first aid, this will continue as normal, with these items to be used when needed: Gloves, resus masks for emergency first aid to be provided to all first aiders, face masks for general first aid.
