|The Well Being Centre Covid – 19 Protection Information and Guidelines for Clients for Classes, Workshops and Treatments|
Sadly once again we have to close our beloved Well Being Centre from 26th December as we enter tier 4. Our hearts go out to all those whose loved ones are seriously ill or who have passed away. We hope and pray for a healthy recovery for all those who are unwell. Thankfully we remain covid-free and covid-safe at the Well Being Centre and hope that with all our wonderful teachers, complementary health practitioners and clients following our protocols we shall remain so. Since July, when we first reopened, we have had only positive comments about the quality of our work and the environment we work in. We are so grateful to all of you who are happy to attend classes and workshops and enjoy the treatments that have been available.
Some classes may continue online only, and a few weekend workshops as well. Please check the timetable for details.
When we are able to return to the Big Yurt our numbers continue to be dependant on the activity, 7 plus teacher for Yoga, Pilates and Qigong classes and workshops; 8 plus facilitator for the Soundbath and 12 for the Circle of Light and 1 to 1’s in the Small Yurt. Managing numbers is the challenge so there can be no drop ins! All attendees need to prebook..
We have been working hard to create a safe and practical space for those who choose to attend the Centre.
It is vital that you follow the following guidelines to ensure safety and enjoyment for all.
-Socially distancing guidelines of 2m must be maintained throughout everyone’s time at the centre
– Hand sanitizing bottles are available by the entrance to the main part of the centre next to the car park and in front of the toilets. It is essential that everyone sanitises their hands before coming into the centre and on leaving. Feel free to use your own.
– Only the right-hand toilet is open. Instructions on their use are both inside and outside. We ask that the toilet seat is cleaned both before and after use with the wipes provided and disposed of in the closeable bin.
– Students and Clients who use public transport should keep their exercise/treatment/ clothes protected
– Face masks are optional for classes and workshops but now mandatory for treatments unless by agreement with the therapist for certain reasons.
– If you are feeling unwell or have been in contact with a covid-19 case we ask you not to attend the Centre (For classes you are welcome to join us online instead)
– If we receive information that someone with a confirmed case of Covid-19 has been to the Centre and joined a class/had a treatment, we will participate in contact tracing and will provide NHS Track and Trace with the relevant data if requested.
GUIDELINES FOR CLASSES/WORKSHOPS
– All person to person classes need to be pre-booked directly with the teacher. Only online classes can be drop in classes. Payment needs to be by transfer/paypal or contactless payment. No cash please.
– We ask students for classes to arrive 5 minutes before class and wait 2m socially distanced in car park. Students for classes will be met here, asked the two questions re Covid-19(Any symptoms/any contact), registered and signed in and your temperature taken with a non-contact thermometer. Any clothing or shoes removed needs to remain within your own 2-metre bubble.
-There are markings inside the yurt and mats will be placed at the right distance for your activity. The mats/ are spaced 2 metres apart from the centre and with synchronised movement everyone will remain 2 metres apart. Outside students stand with their arms out and depending on their size need between 50 and 75 cm between fingers.
– None of our equipment, apart from the chairs for seated classes/workshops, are to be used so the students need to bring their own mat to place onto our mats. Blanket, cushion, block and strap are to be brought with students as required.
– There will be no hands-on adjustments or assists given to students in class
– Students are to be asked to enter and leave the yurt and outdoor spaces one by one socially distanced.
