With Lockdown continuing and Zoom classes going well, we have introduced a 30-day Zoom class pass option at £40 for unlimited 45 and 75 minute classes within a 30 day period. Just add one of these to your basket along with at least one booking (you need to book something with your pass at time of purchase but don't have to book all the sessions you'd like to attend straight away) and the 30 days don't start until the date of the first class booked (not the day you buy the pass).
If you are unfamiliar with Zoom it is a similar platform to Skype so we can see and hear each other. We enjoy a mutual hello and wave to fellow students at the start of the session, then everyone is muted for a regular yoga class, and we finish with a group Namaste and chat.
A schedule of these virtual classes is on bookwhen.com/annsyogalounge so you book in as usual and receive a link (meeting ID) for each class. If you are watching on a tablet or phone you will need to download the Zoom App. Don't forget to charge your laptop/device beforehand! We tried out playing music at our end but it was either too quiet or when we turned it up, distorted, so do pop on some music your end if you would like. If you like the music I play it is Apple iTunes Pure Spa playlist.
As classes are not limited to locals, you may have far away family or friends who would like a bit of yoga and they too could book themselves into a class. Spread the word! Also don't forget that you only need one booking for your whole household!
Saturday Specials - what a shame that we will miss the in person Yoga & Mandala and Candle Making mornings this Spring. At the moment I have kept the events and your places on them but shifted the dates into the future. Exact dates unknown in these uncertain times. If you have paid for these but would like to use money spent (£15) against virtual classes, let us know. Refunds are also possible but there is a small percentage taken off for Stripe transaction fees.
Group yoga classes are sadly postponed until further notice but live online video classes to be announced soon. Let us stay positive and connected - sending love to you all xx

At Ann's Yoga Lounge we are keeping abreast of the evolving situation of Coronavirus, and the advice issued by the Government and Public Health England. Please be assured that everyone's wellbeing and safety is a top priority for us.
The studio and whole premises are cleaned regularly with weekly professional cleans, and particular attention is given to daily sanitising of the toilet and bathroom areas as well as hand towels, furniture, door handles and fittings. The rooms are aired, weather permitting, to allow fresh air to cleanse our space. Mats are wiped before each class, and other items regularly disinfected/washed. We have taken the decision to reduce the use of props in our Hatha classes for the time being, and will provide freshly laundered blankets etc for Yin and Restorative sessions.
Whilst mats and other equipment are always available for you, these are obviously multi user items so you may wish to bring your own kit. You could bring a towel to place over your studio mat if you are concerned. Do feel free to ask for mat recommendations.
Please help us keep The Yoga Lounge as safe and hygienic as possible by washing your hands before class (our bathrooms include hand sanitiser and paper hand towels).
Most students prepay for classes through Stripe or bank transfer, but as an additional precaution to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus, we are encouraging you to consider cashless transactions if at all possible.
If you are not feeling well, please stay at home and rest. Also do be mindful of the latest Foreign Office advice about travel. If you have been abroad, check what they have to say about self isolation and other precautions.
Remember you can cancel classes via your email class confirmation or reminder email up to 24 hours before the start of class without penalty.
Thank you so much for your continued support and care.
May we be happy, may we be healthy.
