To Our Valued Community

As you are aware, the new government COVID-19 Protection Framework comes into effect 3 December 2021. To enable TYC to open at all colours of the new framework, we are legally required to use My Vaccine Pass.

These are unprecedented times for us all, and not where we thought we would be when TYC started communicating with our community about COVID-19 in March 2020.  We appreciate there are very strong emotions and beliefs on both sides of the debate regarding vaccination status. We respect your choice. For TYC to remain in existence, we will need to follow this new framework using My Vaccine Pass.  Sadly, this means from Friday 3 December we will be unable to welcome any members who are unable to provide a My Vaccine Pass. While we will be unable to accommodate you in classes, we are striving to put together options to provide some inclusivity. Please monitor the website for updates as they become available. Should your vaccination status or government policy change, we look forward to welcoming you back at TYC.

My Vaccine Pass is the official Ministry of Health system that records your COVID-19 vaccination status. You can obtain your My Vaccine Pass by signing up and logging in on:

To validate your My Vaccine Pass with us:

When you come into a class; you will need to present your My Vaccine Pass at the entrance. One of our team will scan your My Vaccine Pass using the NZ Pass Verifier App and your name will be recorded on the class sheet as usual. This will confirm validation of your My Vaccine Pass. Any collection and keeping of vaccination status will be solely for the purpose of implementing this policy and will be held in accordance with our privacy policy.

We will follow the government guidelines to ensure safe practice for all. Please stay at home if you are unwell, are a close contact of someone with Covid-19, or have visited a location of interest.

Thank you for your understanding. Please continue to monitor our website for new information or changes. In the meantime, keep practicing in kindness and wellness.
