Covid-19 Policy for Indoor Classes

For our indoor classes, I have set some guidelines to ensure the safety for all of us.
Please read all the information below about what you can expect in Mum & Baby, Pregnancy and Restorative Yoga classes in terms of safety, following government guidelines. You will find guidelines for you as students, as well as what you can expect from me. To be read and adhered to by each participant thank you 🙏

– Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before the class start time.

– Masks are now optional to arrive to Carrot Banana Peach and Bodywise venues – it is your choice to wear one and remove it when you are set on your mat. You may choose to wear a mask to leave the room and use the bathroom.

– At Bodywise, sanitise your hands on arrival and when you leave class. You may want to use use a paper towel to open doors to the studio or operate the lift. Only one person or parent & baby allowed in the lift at present.

– When you arrive for a class, please take your place the furthest away from the entrance, in the designated space for your mat to be laid out. If you arrive at the same time as someone, please wait for the person to have set their mat up before placing yours. I will point out the desired spot we will keep maximum distance between mats.

– Carrot Banana Peach: Keep all your belongings including shoes close to your mat and the pram outside our room.

– Bodywise: the coat racks are in use, bring your own mat or borrow a sanitised one. There’s space for prams in the studio entrance and in the studio corridor. The large three Windows will be open regularly. Wear long sleeves to keep warm enough.

– Carrot Banana Peach has 2 doors the main shop entrance and the back door. The back door will be open often, wear appropriate warm clothing for you and baby, where appropriate. The venue has a state-of-the-art electric ventilation system also which will be used during and in between classes.

– Payments are strictly cashless by bank transfer, PayPal or the Acuity booking system.

– For all classes, teacher and students will be 1 meter apart at all time or more, in very wide U-shape.

– At Carrot Banana Peach & Bodywise spacing is 2m between mats, the permissible minimum is currently 1m according to Government guidelines for social distancing.

– At both venues, I limit the class capacity to 7 pregnant mums, 7 parent & baby pairs, 7 students of Restorative Yoga.

– Upon everyone’s arrival, I will ask you to screen verbally for Covid symptoms. It is recommended to check your temperature before coming to class. I will check mine. If you are unwell or have Covid symptoms, do not attend class. If you have been in contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19 it is your duty to let the teacher know and not attend class for 7 days. You’ll be offered to access the class online.

– At Carrot Banana Peach, you will be required to take your temperature using the automated apparatus in place.

– Hand sanitiser is available to use anytime at the start, during and after your class. It is recommended that you bring your own as well.

– At Carrot Banana Peach, you need to bring a yoga mat, a light blanket to prop baby’s head for baby & tots classes.

– At Bodywise, you can choose to but you do not need to bring any yoga material. You will use a freshly sanitised mat, a bolster and a blanket.

– For Pregnancy & Restorative Yoga in Knutsford, bring a cushion, a mat, and a blanket (plus a pillow for pregnancy). Maryline can lend you a sanitised chair or ball to sit on, especially if you’re in your last trimester or have Pelvic Girdle Pain.

– In baby classes, I will only share sanitised toys that are kept in a clean sealed bag and will go into a different ‘dirty bag’ afterwards and get sanitised thoroughly at home.

– We will not practice pair work in classes. In mum and baby yoga you will occasionally turn to face another student remaining 2 meters apart.

– light breathing practices and singing performed.

– New students need to prebook by filling out the registration form here For mum and baby yoga, and herefor pregnancy yoga.

– No walk-ins without registration and read of the class Covid guidelines.

– For your peace of mind I take Lateral Flow Covid Tests 3 times per week Monday night, Wednesday night and Friday night.

Alert Test, Track and Trace or call 119 (if no internet access) and call Maryline on 07495 210874 if you develop COVID-19 symptoms within 2 days of class so that students can be informed as soon as possible.

Venue’s booking system and myself hold a log of every participants’ contact details, in order to contact every member of the class should any student develop Covid symptoms, test positive, or find out that they have knowingly, been in contact with somebody who has had a positive Covid-19 diagnosis.

I will cancel class if I have any symptoms, or have knowingly had contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19.

I will ensure that all students read and adhere to the Yoga with Maryline Covid policy and procedures for indoor classes
Reminder: the main symptoms of coronavirus are:

A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

For more information, read the further guidance on symptoms here:

Please contact me for clarifications, questions and if you would like to chat about any concerns you have about attending indoor class.

Thank you for your understanding and help in complying to those safety measures.
