The board of directors has come to the decision that we begin our phased reopening from the 1st of July 2020. The re-opening date is dependent on Covid-19 cases/deaths decreasing between now and the 1st of July. A resurgence in cases may affect our plans in the future. 


MEMBERSHIP from Sept 23rd 2020


  • We will be limiting the number of members in the building at any one time to 5 members and 1 member of staff. There will be maximum of two people in the glaze room at any one time and 2 people per making table.  This is to ensure that adequate distance between people can be achieved. 

  • Course participants will need to complete a short social distancing induction on arrival at first session. 

  • We will be changing our opening hours to 24 hour access Tuesday-Sunday. There will be four sessions a day of 9am-1pm / 1pm-5pm / 5pm-9pm and an all night slot of 9pm-9am, all with a maximum of 5 places. You will need to book into the sessions you want online, using the booking system accessed through the "studio booking slots" tab on the website home screen. 

  • Members will be able to open up and close the studio out of staff hours using the key and fob kept in the key safe. The key safe is located to the left of the yoga entrance door tucked around the side of the building. Contact Col for key code.

  • Please bring and wear your own face mask when in the building. 

  • Please wash hands thoroughly with soap and water on arrival and continue to do so throughout your session. 

  • Please thoroughly wash and sanitise any equipment and tools that you use, dry and put back again. there should be nothing left on the drainage board. 

  • Please use your own tools if you have them. If you don't, we have cleaned all tools and arranged tool kits that can be used, cleaned after use and kept on your shelf. 

  • Staff will be sanitising backs of chairs, door handles and taps twice a day. We will also provide wipes so members can wipe any surface they need to, before throwing the wipe away.

  • Please do not come in when there is a course running.




Short courses (one day and taster) will run at a reduced class size of max 8 people with the above strategy for the building in place plus the one-way system that has been put in place. Course participants will need to complete a short social distancing induction on arrival.  Long courses and community sessions will take place again with reduced class sizes in line with social distancing requirements in the building.


Will will endeavour to support any track and trace methods put in place by the government.  



Any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to ask and I will do my best to facilitate.
