How TYC will operate during this Level 2 COVID period.?

Isn’t it wonderful news that we can get back to our yoga centre.

We cannot operate in our ‘normal’ way because of the 2 metre apart restrictions at COVID19 Level 2.  Therefore the classes will be limited to 17 members plus the teacher. The 2 metre distance refers to the distance between members, not the mats.

In order to give TYC members the best opportunity possible to get to a class again, the decision has been made to exclude casual attendees and concession card holders during this period.

Please scan the QR code before entering the centre and observe the 2 metre distance apart as you enter. There will be a new sign in sheet on the front desk for this COVID19 period at Level 2

A mask is required to enter the centre and it needs to be kept on please until the class begins. (Unless you have an exemption). Mask wearing is recommended during the class but is not mandatory. When the class is over please mask up to exit.

The Pink class will be held and people can defer their usual donation until we are back at Level 1 or make an online donation.

The Pregnancy class will also allow casuals to attend and pay online.

All the teachers will be back for their usual classes and they will be monitoring numbers and ensuring that contact tracing takes place.

Teachers may ask for your assistance in carrying out these procedures to help keep us all COVID free.

We know many of you come to several classes during the week, perhaps in order to give all members the opportunity to attend a class your attendance could be reduced during this period.

Thank you for your cooperation during this time.

New in-Ethically made Eyebags

 Treat yourself to an ethically made and sourced eyebag for your shavasana. Or purchase one for a gift for a whanau member or friend.

Each bag has a linen inner and a beautiful cotton batik  cover and they are filled with linseed. Some of these bags are lavender oil infused and others have no scent -so you can add your own. Keep them stored in an eco-friendly container to retain the scent and deter mice(who love to nibble on linseed.)

Cost $18.
