The Yoga Studio Carlisle

Covid-19 Secure – Student & Visitor Policy and Guidance

The Yoga Studio Carlisle is working in partnership with our students and teachers. We wish to thank you all for coming back to practice yoga with us and can assure you that we are working with latest government guidance in order to keep everyone safe. Below are policies all students must comply with on entering The Yoga Studio Carlisle. ANY bookings made for classes, courses or memberships will NOT be refunded if Carlisle goes into a lockdown and the studio closes. You will be reinstated with online passes or credits on your account depending on what was booked,  

From 01/07/2020 we will be introducing the following procedures:

  • All classes MUST be booked and paid for in advance. There will be facility to drop in on the day but you only secure a space by booking. NO cash payments will be accepted.
  • If a class is fully booked and you cancel with less than one hours-notice then you will incur a fee which equates to the drop in price for that class. However, if the class was not fully booked when you cancelled then no fee will be incurred
  • The Yoga Studio has introduced a one-way system. The entrance to the studio in Kinmont Arcade will remain as the main entrance. All access to the studio will be through this door. After class, all visitors will leave the studio through the fire exit door which leads to Treasury Court, the exit is clearly outlined with yellow arrows and walkways.
  • Please do not arrive any earlier than 20 minutes before the class is due to start.
  • There are distance stickers on the stairs to assist visitors to gauge how far apart they should stay.
  • Please remove your shoes at the top of the stairs. Due to the one-way system you will need to take your shoes with you to the changing room.
