I am happy to announce that Hatha Yoga will return to our Kreuzberg studio from the 10th of August, 2021 for live classes. Additionally, the Thursday 6pm class will become a hybrid live/online class again. This means I will be teaching live at the studio, while streaming it on zoom for participants who can not attend live.
Since the pandemic is still ongoing, the classes will be limited to six people in order to comply with the health regulations of Berlin. If you wish to secure your regular monthly space, please write to me and let me know which class you wish to attend.
Here are the updated regulations that we need to follow. Please take a moment to read them so that we are all ready for the return of the Hatha Yoga classes to the studio.
Register for class:
Due to the limited amount of participants, you must register for class.
For monthly students: Please inscribe to a specific class and let me know about it. Please come only to this class. If you miss a class you can recuperate on Thursday 6pm online.
For drop ins: to register for a class you need to send an email and pre-pay for it through paypal or bank account. A refund is only possible if you cancel 24 hours in advance.
For 5er cards: to register for a class you need to send an email specifying the class and sign your own 5er card. A refund is only possible if you cancel 24 hours in advance.
Proof of vaccination AND show of a negative test
The Berlin regulations require that you show a proof of vaccination AND a 24 hour negative test in order to attend a class. It is required to be an official test from one of the various test centers in Berlin.
The use of medical masks
There will be a partial use of medical masks at the studio. You need to wear your medical mask, when you come in and out of the studio, when you go to the bathroom, and as you walk to your mat.
When everyone is situated at their mats, you can take your mask off and practice yoga without a mask.
If you need to go to the bathroom during the class, you need to put your mask back on as you pass the other students.
Wash your hands as you enter the space.
As you enter the studio, please use the bathroom on the left to wash your hands thoroughly before filling out the obligatory list of contacts at the table.
Please bring your own yoga mat to class. If, for some reason you forget, you will be allowed to use ours but you need to disinfect it before use and after use. The Health Ministry highly discourages the common use of yoga mats.
Hands-on corrections can happen only if both student and teacher are wearing a mask.
Airing the space
When possible yoga class will happen with the windows open. When the weather gets chillier, I will air every 20 minutes for 3-5 minutes. In order to reduce contamination, please do not touch the window handles and air yourself. Every time you feel the need for more air, please let me know and I will open the windows for you.
Keeping a list of contacts
We are required to keep a list of contacts for 4 weeks after each class. The list must contain every person’s full name, address, and phone number.
I am so excited to see all of you live again!
