In Person Class Information & Etiquette
Please, do NOT DROP-IN, classes are by BOOKING ONLY so please enquire first and fill in ParQ (health/waiver) form here- thank you.
DO NOT ATTEND with ANY illness, especially COVID symptoms. You will be refused participation if you turn up clearly ill and will lose your booking payment.
YOGA CLASS INFO -
Bring your own sanitiser, wipes, proper sticky yoga mat, chunky yoga brick, strap, water and blanket for relaxation
If you would prefer no hands on asists or close up guidance, please let the instructor know via email prior to class or privately at the start of class.
Clothing Bring extra layers in winter as some halls can be a bit chilly.
Wear, comfortable, moveable clothing, that's cool in summer and layer up in winter. Please wear decent clothing, that protects your modesty and respects others! (ie no loose short shorts and no see through cycling shorts please!)
If you become pregnant
Please tell Vernette BEFORE attending class as it may not be wise to continue practice, especially in the first trimester. Classes are not designed with pregnancy in mind but can be modified if already have an established practice.
Please arrive 5-10 minutes early,
Entering classes late is disturbing to others. If you do arrive a few minutes late, please make sure that you enter as slowly and quietly as you can. Most venues, the doors will be locked at class start time so you wont get in if late. No entry to halls before 15 minutes prior to class start time.
Practice on an empty stomach
It is recommended that you do not eat a heavy meal at least three hours before practice. A light meal is okay 1-2 hours beforehand.
Please help preserve the peace and be sure to turn off your mobile phone before entering the class so that its quiet and the bluetooth off as the class maybe streamed live and it interferes with the mic headset.
Although all classes are open, all abilities, a reasonable level of fitness or mobility is required for some of the classes as they are fairly active, flowing hatha / vinyasa yoga, including slow to medium paced flowing movements as well as some holding postures. If you can get up and down off the floor with relative ease, you'll be ok in the hatha and vinyasa / flow classes.

ZUMBA CLASS INFO -
Bring water and towel as you may get sweaty! To protect your knees, its advisable to wear shoes or sneakers that dont have too much tread such as flexible soled plimsoles, pumps, dance shoes, cross training shoes are better. If running trainers are all you have, be careful to keep steps quite small.
All payments for class are to be paid more than 2 hours before class by bank transfer. If new, please DONT buy before you have contacted Vernette as the fitness form needs to be filled in first.

DISCLAIMER: We sometimes have some tech wobbles, but generally it's all pretty good.
YOU are responsible for all that you do as I'm not there with you so make sure your space is safe and that you read ALL of the information for practice and ZOOM setup below.
INFORMATION ON HOW TO DO CLASSES AND PRIVATE SESSIONS THROUGH ZOOM
1) DOWNLOAD ZOOM app to your phone or laptop or desktop from here: https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting
Register for a free account
It will be useful to have a go with Zoom before the class if you aren’t familiar with using it. You can also watch a few of these 1 minute tutorials which are really helpful. Here's the link for those: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting
2) Then choose the class you wish to join and message me to book in. I will then request payment (see below) and I will then send you the ID and password to join. Please join the meeting early by pressing the link and you will be taken to a ‘waiting room' where I will admit you to the class 5-10 minutes before the start. I will NOT be giving tech advice at the start of the class, so I say again, have a play and familiarize yourself with it.
If you do not want to be seen by me and the other people taking the class please press the ‘STOP VIDEO’ option which is the button next to the mute button. If you leave the video on, remember I CAN SEE YOU and so can other people!!!
