As the world struggles to come to grips with what has seemingly changed the course of our lives for the time being, we are keen to share our plans at Kula over the coming weeks. It is important we stick together with our yoga spirit and community state of mind as we channel our inner-resilience and adaptability to help navigate this ever-changing time.

Studio Update

Are you feeling well enough to practise yoga?

To keep our community safe we politely ask that you only attend class if you feel healthy and do not have any symptoms as listed on the NHS website. Please read full breakdown and guidance here.

Studio Cleanliness

  • When you arrive at the studio please wash your hands, use hand gel and where possible bring your own mat.
  • If you are using one of the Kula mats please clean it with the mat spray provided before and after class.
  • No touch support in classes continues.
  • Mat cleaning cloths will be changed twice a day.
  • Regular studio deep cleans.

Class Numbers Reduced

  • From Monday 23rd March class numbers will be reduced to increase space between students/mats based on World Health Organisation guidelines.
  • Please continue to book classes in the usual way if you are fit and well. However, where possible please do not book if you are planning not to attend so another student can have the opportunity to practise. We may have to start charging for missed classes and repeated no shows.

Refund Policy

  • In order to keep the Yoga Kula studio running now and in the future we are unable to refund missed classes, courses or class passes due to coronovirus or other illnesses, other than what is outlined in our cancellation policy, which can be reviewed here.
  • We are happy to pause class passes due to illness or self-isolation.

Cashless

  • The Yoga Kula studio will be cashless from Tuesday 17th March to reduce the potential for the spread of bacteria.

Yoga Props

Where possible why not purchase your own props? Now is a great opportunity to invest in your yoga practice and home practice by purchasing your own yoga props whilst in turn supporting a small business like Kula in these difficult times. We have created a discounted yoga at home set;

  • 1 Yoga Matters mat
  • 1 belt or mat strap
  • 1 block or 1 brick
  • box of incense

Total £40. A saving of £7.50. You can purchase from the Hub or the studio.

Hot Yoga Towels

If you attend hot yoga we can offer you an extra layer of protection with our hot yoga towels which are available to purchase from Wednesday 18th March.

Yoga for Living with Cancer

Yoga for Living with Cancer has been cancelled until further notice. We are in the process of notifying our students.

Support the Community

Voluntary Action Leeds have started keeping details of people willing to help others in the community on file. If you can offer support of any kind you can contact them by email on info@val.org.uk or by calling 0113 297 7920, but please be aware this will greatly increase the demands on them so it may take a while to get through.

Whilst there’s no guaranteed way to make the studio a completely risk-free environment if we work together to ensure we practise the hygiene steps set out above we will certainly help reduce risk.

If you have any questions or would like to speak to a member of the team please don’t hesitate to contact us.
