We are back face to face in class but are observing strict hygiene regulations as set out by NSW Heath. This enables us to keep everyone safe and to stay open.
All students need to confirm they have read the information below and agree to keep the guidelines, before they come to class.
Please bring as much of your own equipment to class as possible. At the very least everyone will need their own mat and a towel or large cloth, like a sarong, to put over the soft equipment, especially blankets and bolsters. If possible bring a belt, block, bolster and blanket, as well as your mat. There will be some equipment for use but safer if all students bring what they can from home.
In the studio, place your mat on one of the crosses marked out. Centre of your mat goes over the cross
Stay on your mat unless you need to move.

Thank you for your consideration and for looking after each other.
We are finally coming back into the studio! We have strict guidelines and I am asking students to bring as much equipment as possible to enable us to all keep safe. Could you please bring your own mat. If you have blocks, a belt and a blanket, please also bring them to class. Please also bring a towel or a large piece of fabric to place over the soft equipment. There is equipment at the Yoga Room for student use but it would be great if you could bring at least a mat. Thanks for your cooperation and contact me if you have questions.

Hi yoga community,
A short post to let you know that classes continue as normal tomorrow Monday 8 June. If you wish to attend the Monday 9.30am online class and you don't have a membership or haven't paid for the term, please a casual class on the website: https://orangeyogaroom.com.au/collections/all/products/9-30am-monday-class.
I will be posting soon on how The Yoga Room will proceed with classes in the near future. We will continue with online classes indefinitely at this stage, so please support our yoga school and book a casual class next week. This will ensure we can keep our school functioning over the next 6 months.
See you on the mat!
It is with much sadness that I inform our student body that The Yoga Room will close it's doors at midday today, in compliance with government direction. Our school has delivered yoga classes, workshops, YogArt and Led Practice to our community for 22years now and I am extremely proud of our teachers and our students in their progression and learning along the yoga path.
I feel very strongly about continuing to offer yoga to students as it is through what we have learnt in our yoga practice that we are able to 'tread the path between caution and courage', as Fiona reminded me last Saturday. I am unsure if we will reopen again but I am determined to continue to provide yoga classes to our valued students on line at this point in time.
I am offering Zoom classes as from this morning. The Monday classes have been informed via email about procedures to join their regular class and I will be sending out emails to each class with information on how we will proceed on line. This is taking time and energy to put together and I ask for your patience as I get our Zoom classes up and running. The format won't be perfect but we are open online and still offering classes for the rest of term. Please join me on the mat and practice your class in your home - maybe other family members might like to join you?
I will give further updates on our online options in the near future. In the meantime, look out for the email and jump on Zoom for your regular class until term finishes.
Love, light, blessings and good health to you and your family,
Yours in Yoga
Below is a copy of the email I sent out yesterday. It appears some students did not receive it so I am posting again.
I am reviewing our classes due to the implications of Covid-19. As valued students of The Yoga Room, we wish to maintain healthy guidelines as set out by the NSW Government.
In line with this advice, the following steps are to minimise unnecessary risk to students and teachers. Things are moving fast but at this stage our school needs to observe the following:
