Use support when you need it. (Covid-19 news)
You must have been waiting for yet another ‘corona-virus’ update… but of course given the current situation and the recent government measures we also need to be responsible and help avoid spreading the virus further. So here is what we all can do:
- please don’t come to class even if you have mild symptoms (runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, mild cough or low-grade fever). The teachers will do the same!
- wash your hands well before and after class. We will provide disposable hand towels.
- bring your own towel to dry your feet.
- clean your mat before and after class, or bring your own mat! You can even buy a mat at iYoga. If you wish you can also bring a towel to cover bolsters/blankets.
- we will take extra care to clean any door handles and surfaces multiple times a day.
- please keep a reasonable distance from others when you place your mat.
- to help this, we will temporarily lower the class capacity. So please sign up before coming to class! This also ensures that, should we be forced to cancel a class, we can let you know.
- also we are postponing all planned events (the workshop with Garth McLean, the Advanced Patañjali Course with Gitte Bechsgaard, anda the In-Depth Course and Yoga Lab sessions) to a later date.
- since you are requested by the government to alter your working times or work from home, come out of your ‘bubble’ and visit some of our quieter classes! We have a few classes a week that are very full, but also many that are quiet.
- and last but not least… keep up your practice! Especially when you’re quarantined at home, it’s an excellent opportunity to practice a lot. Below you find a practice sequence that is advised to practice to support the immune system. Also Eyal Shifroni has been requested by the Chinese Iyengar Yoga Association to make a sequence that you can see in this video. Or maybe this video is a bit more accessible for your home practice.
PS and of course, if you feel insecure, you can always build yourself a fort out of yoga blocks!
