FINALLY, after another lengthy socially distanced, shutdown, the studio can welcome you back from this Wednesday 28 October, 2020.  Firstly I would like to thank you for your ongoing support to our community safety and the studio.  It’s been a “scribbly year” but as a collective, we are strong, supportive, kind and sweet. 

the studio is so excited for you to return with social distancing and strict hygiene measures in place so please take a few minutes to read the studio procedures outlined below.  Also, as it has been quite a while between ‘real’ classes, all classes will slowly progress to finesse your alignment, and to ensure your safety.

due to the COVID-19 restrictions, please note that the following studio protocols will be place effective from Wednesday 28 October until restrictions are further eased by the Victorian Government.

class sizes and timetable

  1. classes capped to 8 clients MAXIMUM per session plus the instructor.  If restrictions ease within the coming weeks, class sizes may increase.

  2. with the reduced class sizes, it is highly recommended you book your session(s) in advance to avoid disappointment.

  12. the studio will provide ample and effective hygiene supplies to ensure your safety.  This includes hand sanitiser, disinfectant/anti-bacterial mat wipes/sprays, handwash, paper towelling, etc.  Please ensure you practice good hygiene and follow the instructions provided.

  13. also, remember we must still be vigilant - be thoughtful to not place anyone in an uncomfortable contra-COVID-19 position. As always, safety first! Any breaches may result in a review of your access to the studio for the safety of the whole community.

  14. as required by the Victorian government, the studio will undertake pre, post class and weekly deep cleans to ensure everyone’s continuous safety.

Remember we are all in this together but as we have seen, staying apart has had its advantages.

Stay strong, stay sweet, stay safe
