I have carried out a risk assessment for classes which will be regularly reviewed in line with any changes to government guidance on making shared spaces covid safe. As the guidance and regulations are subject to frequent change please contact me to request the most up to date information or to request a copy of my risk assessment.​


Please do not come to class if you are not well, have any Covid symptoms or any cold and flu symptoms.

The WHO guidance clearly states that face coverings should not be worn during exercise but you are welcome to wear a face covering on arrival and when leaving if you wish. This is not compulsory. 

Please make sure your contact details are kept up to date.
