Below is a list of measures we will undertake on reopening our studios.
These may evolve according to the latest governmental and scientific advice


  • The capacity of each studio will be approx 30% of that before lockdown
  • We will ensure sufficient fresh air is brought into all studios throughout the day. This may mean the studio could get a little colder so please be sure to bring an extra layer of clothing if you think you’ll need it
  • Floor stickers will indicate the flow of students to and from classes
  • Floor markings will indicate where to place mats
  • Face masks are not required but optional during classes. We advise you to wear one at all other times during your visit. Our reception staff are required to wear masks but teachers are not
  • Teachers will not move around the studio nor give any physical adjustments
  • Changing rooms are open but please come to the studio in your exercise clothing
  • Showers will be temporarily unavailable
  • We will be cashless and only accepting card payments
  • Studios will be cleaned thoroughly throughout the day. Our level of cleaning has always been high but we will increase further and include hourly touch point cleaning too


    Things we ask you to do

  • Pre-book classes to avoid crowding around reception desk
  • Provide full contact details if new to the studio (track and trace requirement)
  • Ensure your contact details are up to date in your account
  • Thoroughly wash your hands and/or sanitise upon entering. Multiple hand gels and sinks are provided
  • Bring your own mat and any props you may need. We sell mats and most props in both studios
  • Arrive between 10-15 minutes before the start of each class; not before or after. Latecomers will not be admitted
  • We have lockers in Islington but not in Tufnell Park – please don’t bring any valuables with you.
  • Not come to the studio or attend classes if you have any Covid-19 symptoms. If in doubt please refer to the NHS website here


    Please remember

  • There is no evidence Covid-19 can be spread by sweat
  • Physical activity improves health, wellbeing and immunity: all linked to decreased Covid-19 risk
