Covid Policy

Macha Yoga will be reopening on July 5th! We can’t wait to welcome you back!

What we’re doing

We’ve reduced yoga class sizes to 7 clients per class which will be distanced and strictly non-contact. For seated and sedentary practices like meditation or Cacao, we’ll have 8-9. With significantly lower numbers we kindly ask that you book your classes in advance and make cancelations with 24 hours notice.

Our studio always has good ventilation as a result of its design, but we’ve also acquired a HEPA filter for use in group classes to enhance our air purification. When possible, we’ll have the window open. As before we’ll be steaming the floor, providing hand sanitiser etc before and after classes.

Before you come…

… to class we ask that you familiarise your self with our new procedures. You may be given an updated health policy from your teacher to sign. We kindly ask that you don’t come if any of the following apply to you. If you are exhibiting symptoms of cough, cold or fever, please let your teacher know as soon as you can to cancel your class. For the sake of everyone’s immunity and well-being, please stay home and rest if you’re unwell.

UPDATE: While government guidelines currently do not recommend self-isolation for vaccinated close contacts of confirmed Covid cases, we ask that you keep in mind our vulnerable and pregnant clients by not attending class if you know you’ve been a contact regardless of vaccination status.

  1. Do you have symptoms of cough, fever, high temperature, sore throat, runny nose, breathlessness or flu like symptoms now or in the past 14 days? 
  2. Have you been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection in the last 14 days? 
  3. Are you a close contact of a person who is a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days (i.e. less than 2 metres for more than 15 minutes altogether in 1 day)? 
  4. Have you been advised by a doctor to self-isolate at this time? 
  5. Have you been advised by a doctor to cocoon at this time? 

Contact tracing

Your details are only ever collected or kept by your teacher, unless required to prevent an outbreak via contact tracing. We’ll need you to update your full name, phone number and address. We’ll keep a record of your attendance and who you were with in each class.

When you arrive…

  1. Please arrive on time and wait outside the entrance until your teacher is ready for you to come in. Your teacher will open and close the doors for you.
  2. Place your mat where the markers are.
  3. Please wear a mask in the hall.
  4. Please enter and exit in an orderly manner giving everyone plenty of space.
  5. Sanitise your hands on entry and exit with sanitiser provided.
  6. Practice respiratory etiquette and bin any used tissues in the hall.


Our lovely blankets, bolsters and cushions are taking a well earned holiday for now! We’re very sad to see them go, but hopefully not forever. We strongly advise you bring your own mats and props, we will be selling many of the essentials at the studio. We will require mats to be sprayed and wiped clean after use.

Mask Policy

Last time, a bit of confusion arose about masks at the studio. Here’s what you need to know:

The WHO advise against the use of masks during exercise. As a result, we don’t require you to wear one once you’re seated on your mat.
You may wear one if you prefer.
We kindly ask clients who can to wear a mask in the hall where distancing is difficult.
Please be aware the majority of our clients and teachers do not wear a mask while practicing yoga.
We will never ask you to prove an exemption from mask wearing.

Thanks for taking the time to familiarise yourself with the new plan! With your help and cooperation we can continue to offer the much needed communal space for our practice!

Love from all the teachers and practitioners at Macha Yoga x
