Term 4 - What's happening in this busy term - Led Practice, Workshops and more

Welcome back to Term 4

Welcome back to the final term of 2019.  We are on the countdown to Christmas and all that goes with it.  It will get busy and silly, and time will become precious.   It is essential NOW to make that commitment to come to your class(es) each week, to Led Practice on a Saturday morning, no matter what is going on in your life.  Make time to come onto the mat, let go of the hype and demandsand carve out some space for yourself.  This commitment to your yoga practice will, in turn, give back to you in ways that are worth the effort.  It's not too late to join for the term if you haven't yet enrolled!

Led Practice

Every Saturday morning from 7.00am til 8.30am, whatever the weather, two teachers (or a Level 2 student) give up their time to open up The Yoga Room and lead a sequence for students to follow.  As a student at Led Practice you don’t have to think about what to do, timings, finding a space or equipment.  All you need to do is come along and practice. Any student can attend Led Practice once they have a working knowledge of the basic poses.  To encourage students to attend and find their feet on the mat, I am offering free Led Practice to students who enrol for two classes per week.  The only stipulation at Led Practice is that students practice sensibly and to their individual capacity.  If you enrol for one class per week, then 10 sessions will cost $100 and 5 sessions $65, which you can pay on line when you pay your term fees or pay cash to your teacher.   If you wish to attend casually, you pay $15 to the teacher/Leader on the day.  But wait, there's one more bonus.  Unless all teachers are away at the one time, Led Practice continues through school holidays. This means you have 12 weeks to claim your 10 or 5 weeks of Led Practice.  Wiggle room is always a bonus.  So come along and join the group and start the weekend feeling energised and clear headed.  There's still time to join.

Weekend Workshop Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 November

 Join me to deepen your understanding of the practice of Yoga.  

Workshops allow us to look in more details at certain aspects of our yoga practice.  We have time to contemplate, study detail and cultivate a deeper understanding of yoga asana, pranayama and philosophy.  Building knowledge gives confidence and allows us to become strong, independent yoga practitioners.  Whether you are a beginner or an experienced student, this workshop is suitable for you, so join me!

Saturday 3.00-5.30pm

Sunday 8.00-10.30am and 3.00-5.30pm

Cost:  $150

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.

Have returned from international travel and failed to observe the government requirement to quarantine for 14 days.

leave the site immediately if they become unwell, after notifying a staff member

 

at all times, maintain social distancing measures (as per NSW Health guidelines)

 

maintain good personal hand hygiene by washing their hands thoroughly and /or using hand sanitizer;

Thank you for your cooperation.  By observing these guidelines we will keep ourselves safe and keep our studio open.

Thank you for your consideration and for looking after each other.
  

We're Easing back to Face to Face Classes!!

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.

Below is the timetable for the weekend commencing Monday 22 June.  Please note we have added two classes in the studio this week:  Monday 6.00pm and Wednesdasy 9.30am.  We will continue to add more as weeks go by.

COVID-19 Update

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

Tricia

COVID-19 update on what precautions The Yoga Room is taking

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.
https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/diseases/Pages/covid-19-latest.aspx.  

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:

  • Could all students wash and dry their hands in the bathroom before and after class.  There is also hand sanitiser on the table as you walk in the door.  
  • Disinfectant Spray is available to clean all mats after the class and the mats will be left out to dry thoroughly after each class.
  • You can also spray blocks.
  • NOW IS A GREAT TIME TO PURCHASE YOUR OWN YOGA EQUIPMENT.  There are some mats available at The Yoga Room.  If you have your own mat, belt and blocks, please bring them to class.  You can also purchase equipment from Iyogaprops.
  • No adjustments will be made to students in class.
  • Please spread out as much as possible
  • If you return from an overseas trip please don’t come to class for 14 days.

Times are uncertain and a yoga practice is invaluable to keep us calm and allow us to adapt to this unknown situation as it changes.  I will keep all students up to date as changes occur.

Keep practising to keep your immune system strong and I will see you on the mat.

Yours in Yoga
Tricia
