HOW WILL MY VISIT TO HIGH AERIAL STUDIO LOOK NOW?
You will not be allowed entry to the studio until approximately 5 minutes before your class.
Until then we ask that you wait outside/in your car. Even when outside – you MUST stay socially distanced please.
When the door is opened by an instructor, you may enter and follow the floor plan (this will be sent in an email) and please use the hand sanitiser provided.
Only bring essential items into the studio – you will have a space marked out for your personal belongings.
We are asking that you wear you a face covering upon entry/exit to/from the studio, as its slightly harder to social distance on point of entry/exit.
Your face covering can be removed once you`re settled in the studio.
You do not need to wear a face covering whilst exercising.
Classes will be planned to minimise spotting but where the risk of safety out weighs the risk of the virus – we will do it.
Your safety is our priority.
You are not permitted to hang around in the studio or outside the door of the studio before or after your class, you must leave promptly.
POLE AND AERIAL HOOP:
In your working space you will find – spray bottle with alcohol spray to clean equipment with.
A clean cloth for only you to use.
These are for each person in class to wipe down the equipment before and after use.
Aerial hoops are untapped to allow cleaning – we understand this will take some getting used to.
So you will find wearing shorts gives you skin grip, rather then leggings, although this is personal choice.
When leaving the studio, you will place your cloth into a bin and they will go to be washed.
Your work space will be taped out allowing social distancing measures to be in place.
Please bring your own yoga mats if you want them for the warm up and cool down.
We have enough hammocks to have smaller classes, meaning the hammocks will not be re-used within a minimum of 24 hours.
Please bring your own yoga mat with you.
Please wear a face covering until your instructor has set up your hammock.
You can then remove it and place it at the front of your mat with your personal belongings.
Please leave the hammocks down when finishing the class, so your instructor can remove them and replace them with the next set.
Please wear your face covering on exiting the studio.
KIDS HAMMOCK CLASSES:
We will be in touch shortly regarding start up date.
Private lessons are available at High Aerial Studio.
We have to leave the doors open fully at all times during classes, we are not allowed to use fans (government guidelines).
MUSIC VOLUME/VOICE LEVELS:
Government guidelines state that instructors cannot raise their voices so music will be background noise and we ask that you do not shout across the studio – although it will be very exciting to see everyone!
A total germ paradise!
So there will be no passing phones to one another to take photos/videos – sorry.
We will allow 5 minutes before the end of the class for any photos to be taken (by you of yourself).
If we think this is impacting on the social distancing measures, we will temporarily ban photos/videos being taken.
