Please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.

To accommodate all our members despite the 10-person-restriction, we have close to DOUBLED the number of classes we are offering each week.

FROM JUNE 22, WE WILL BE OFFERING CLOSE TO 50 CLASSES PER WEEK, OVER 2 ROOMS TO ACCOMMODATE DEMAND. THIS SCHEDULE WILL BE ADAPTED CONTINUOUSLY TO MATCH THE EASING OF RESTRICTIONS AND THE REQUIREMENTS OF OUR STUDENTS.

Many classes will also be streamed online.

Your favourite teachers are now teaching more classes.

Classes will have staggered start times so as not to overcrowd reception.

Some will be live-streamed too, which means sometimes, you will be practising in the filming studio and sometimes you won’t. This enables us to keep streaming our classes to our online members, while at the same time, increasing the number of classes we offer at the studio. The more people that can practice with us, the more classes we can offer.

If you are practising in the filming studio, the only thing that changes is that the teacher spends most of the time at the front of the studio and will have cameras and lights pointed at them (not you 😉 )

View Studio Schedule

To keep our community safe, we are implementing the following hygiene protocols to avoid the spread of germs and reduce the risk of infection. These strict regulations will interfere with the comfort and ease of the studio but we will try our very best to keep the vibe as warm and welcoming as it was before. Please bear with us as we adjust and learn to streamline these processes at the start:

  • According to State regulation, the use of showers and changing rooms will not be permitted
  • Toilets are available upstairs and maintained to the highest sanitary standards but if you can, please avoid using these wherever possible
  • Communal sitting areas will not be accessible
  • Communal water taps and tea will not be available. Please bring your own drink bottle. Sealed drinks can be purchased at reception
  • Lockers are available and will be cleaned regularly but please minimise any personal items you bring to the studio
  • Hand sanitiser will be made available in the downstairs areas. Please use upon arrival and when entering and leaving the studio
  • Props and rental mats will NOT be available
  • If you are storing your mat at the studio, please use the provided sanitisers to clean it before placing it on the shelf
  • Staff have been advised that anyone displaying flu-like symptoms will be asked to leave. If you are not feeling well, please stay at home!
  • Studios and highly-frequented surfaces will be disinfected between every class, please be patient and wait outside as we do this
  • Please leave your shoes on the rack near the entrance
  • Teachers will be modifying their classes as follows:
    • Not walking around the room but remaining at the front
    • No rigorous pranayama practices
    • No hands-on assists or contact of any kind
  • Air purifiers will be placed in both studios
  • Ventilation and windows will be opened as much as possible
  • Studio temperature will be kept at a constant 23ºC (no hot yoga for the time being)
  • Teachers and staff will have completed the COVID19 online training for workplaces procedures

Please read through the above before coming to the studio for the first time, to avoid any surprises or disappointments. Thank you so much for working with us on the above measures to ensure that our community can practice together, safely. If you have any questions, recommendations or worries about the above, please feel free to Contact Us or chat to us at reception.

We are INCREDIBLY lucky to have 2 large studios to accommodate 1.5m distance between each mat allowing us to welcome the maximum number of students allowed per class: 10. Physical distancing will be facilitated with the following measures:

  • Class times will be staggered to minimise the traffic at reception, locker areas and bathrooms
  • The studio will only be accessible 10 minutes before class time. If you arrive before then, please wait outside (rug up guys, its winter!!!)
  • Please leave the studio as quickly as possible after class ends, to avoid a traffic jam with other students. This point hurt us a lot. One of the things the new studio layout was meant to provide, was an environment to hang and connect with you 🙁 )
  • Class numbers are limited to 10 students
  • Mat spots will be clearly marked on the ground with tape to make it as easy as possible to set up your mat
  • Please do not bring any personal belongings (apart from props, sweaters and drink bottles) into the studio (lockers will be available outside)
  • Please avoid any physical contact with other students, with teachers and with the rest of the team
  • The studio pooches (Maja and Ella) will be in a sectioned off area for cuddles. If you would like a cuddle, please sanitise before and after you do.
  • If you would like to chat to us about something (we would LOVE that but just might need to finish cleaning first) please let us know and you can wait in the common area upstairs and we will come up the minute everything is sanitised and ready for the next class.
  • Probably the biggest pain point for us: we will need to keep the socialising at reception to a minimum. This will be so hard for us –  we MISS hanging with you all! If we do come across as a little short or rushed, please know that we would love nothing more than to keep chatting with you guys – but we are currently not really supposed to. Making everyone feel welcomed and safe is our number 1 priority. If through all of this, we ever do something that is contrary to that, please point it out to us (respectfully and constructively). We are all learning to navigate these new circumstances as best we can.

As per the “Memberships” section, until the strict restrictions on numbers of people in each class are lifted, we will have to implement a few booking procedures and limitations in order to minimise any disappointment at not being able to attend a class. Nonetheless, we are aware that the sie of our community cannot nearly be matched with the 10-people-per-class limitation. We have added a large number of classes to the schedule to make up for this limitation and are committed to continuously adapting the schedule to real demand. In the first few weeks, we will see which timeslots will need more classes and which less.

Stay updated on all the changes:

We have no indication as to when restrictions will ease further, so we will be re-evaluating our policies, procedures and schedule on an ongoing basis. Please stay updated on our Instagram, Facebook Page and make sure you receive our emails (add collingwood@iamthat-yoga.com to your contacts list and ensure your Mindbody account has the right contact address).

Please note the current booking procedures and policies:

  • If you are an existing member, you should have received an email with details about your specific booking procedures. If you have not please CONTACT US
  • All classes have to be booked prior to arriving. Please note we cannot currently accept Walk-Ins
  • Bookings to classes open 24hrs in advance only
  • Some time slots will be very popular and others less popular. In the first few days this will become quite obvious. The more flexible you are the more likely you are to get a spot. Weekdays 530pm and weekend mornings are the most popular spots.
  • Doors open 10 minutes before class
  • Classes have to start on time to accommodate time for cleaning
  • At this point we are not limiting the number of classes people can book as we are hoping that our increased number of classes available will help even things out. Should we need to adjust this policy, we will. Please use your own judgement as to how you can help make access to the classes as fair as possible
  • Cancellations occurring less than 2 hours before the start of class will be charged at $13 with no exceptions (see below our cancellation policy)

The strict limitations on the number of people per class mean that a lot of people will miss out. In order to minimise this and to encourage all members of the community to consider this when you plan your yoga schedule, we are implementing very strict (and unprecedented) cancellation policies. Please note that fairness and accessibility is super important to us and so, no exceptions will be made.

  • Classes cancelled less than 2 hours before the scheduled time for daytime classes and 12 hours for morning classes, will be considered late cancels, charged at $13 per class
  • No shows will be charged as late cancels
  • To allow for enough time to sanitise spaces in between classes and to avoid increasing traffic at reception we have to start the classes on time. Our schedule is timed to maximise class time and minimise bottlenecks. For this reason:
    • Please note that access to classes cannot be granted after the class has started at the scheduled time
    • If the entrance is open but you arrive late, please do not walk into the class unnoticed – there are procedures in place that need to be followed to keep everyone safe. If there is no one at reception (we might be prepping or cleaning elsewhere) please do not enter the class
    • If you arrive late and miss class but have booked you will be charged the late cancel fee detailed above
    • Your spot will be given to the next person just before we start the class
    • Due to the limited spots available, we are not currently able to provide a credit or move your booking to another class if you have arrived late
    • Please understand that no exceptions can be made as a no show most definitely meant that someone else missed out

With a little bit of extra planning and consideration, everyone has a fair go at getting a spot in class. We are aware that things do happen and we are all human and sometimes we just cannot help being late, or not making it to a class. While we would usually try to accommodate everyone and make a plan, we just don’t currently have the space to do that, which is why the above measures are necessary.

Thank you for understanding.
