Covid-19 Risk Assessment 

This is how I am ensuring that classes are as low risk as possible for covid-19 transmission.

Outdoor Yoga Classes

  • Students will be positioned at least 2 metres apart.

  • Students will bring their own mats and props. No equipment will be provided.

  • Students are advised to bring their own hand sanitiser.

  • Students are not required to wear a mask during the practice; however they can on arrival and departure (optional). Sophie & Karine will not be wearing masks. 

  • Toilets - Toilets are available at Rowheath however you will need to abide by the rules of these facilities.

  • Please bring your own water bottle.

  • There will be NO hands on adjustments - Only verbal and visual cues.

  • Teachers may leave their mat and offer verbal cues to individuals but will remain at a safe distance.

  • Numbers are limited to 14 students plus two teachers.

  • Everyone must book and pay in advance using the online booking system. (No drop-ins allowed under any circumstances).

  • Students are asked to avoid greeting each other by hugging or other physical contact. 

  • As this is an allowed ‘exercise’ class, once the class is over, you are required to pack up and leave the area immediately as this is then classed as a ‘social gathering’.

 

  • Classes will continue to run on the basis that everyone observes the social distancing rules. 

 

  • Karine and Sophie disclose that they are not yet vaccinated due to their age group. There is no stipulation on whether or not people can attend based on vaccination status. This is personal preference.

  • All mats face in the same direction so that that no one is face to face with anyone else.


Ventilation

  • This class is fully outside and well ventilated.

Symptoms

  • You must not come to the class if you, or anyone you are in close contact with, has a temperature or any possible symptoms of covid-19.

  • If you develop symptoms following a class, you must inform me so that track and trace measures can be taken.

  • If someone tests positive who has attended a class, you will receive an email from the teacher to confirm this and you will then need to follow Government guidelines.

  • Unless exempt, you must wear a mask whilst in any indoor areas of Rowheath Pavilion (eg going to the toilet).
