Exercise and Stretch Classes

I've been working with managers of the various village halls and rooms that I teach my classes in to ensure that my new in-person classes are Covid-19 compliant, with appropriate distancing and Covid-19 hygiene policies in place in all of the halls and rooms. This allows both yourselves and myself to have confidence with respect to personal safety whilst being able to exercise.
Most of my exercise classes will commence from Tuesday 15th September 2020. Classes will be one hour in length. Due to distancing measures required, the number of participants in each class is strictly limited. I ask you to book in advance to ensure your place as soon as possible. There will not be the facility to drop into classes.
Note, there are a few spaces remaining and you're welcome to join any of these classes, contact me for details and adjusted cost.
Once you've booked I will email details about new distancing and cleaning routines.
Please note that you will need to bring your own mat, block (or cushion) and blanket. I have new mats that you can purchase from me (£15) and also blocks (£5) and well as straps and resistance bands. Order ASAP please.
Payment by BACS preferred, either before or after first class.

Classes online on Zoom
These have been so successful during lockdown that I will be continuing with classes as below. If we go into lockdown again at any time, those attending live classes are welcome to join online classes. A recording of each class is available afterwards in case you're unable to watch it at the time. These will be recordings of teaching in real time.

Yoga for All on Tuesday mornings 11.30am - 12.30pm
Stretch & Strengthen on Thursdays 6pm - 7pm
Cost to attend online Zoom classes for 6 weeks (one or both classes) is £35
You will need a personal link and password to access. Please email me if you’d like to attend the classes and I’ll email your link and password and give you payment details. If you're new to Zoom, please access the class well in time, as you will need to download Zoom (you don’t need to create an account though) and it takes a minute or two to get on. Simply follow the instructions on your screen when you join the class. Don't panic, it's easy!
