Covid-19 Hygiene Procedures for the LS8 Studio
The home studio is sufficiently big to allow a 2 metre distance between us. Whilst you work on the Reformer or the mat I will remain 2 metres away from you standing or seated.
The studio has its own entrance from the back street. It has its own toilet, not used by family members.
Ventilation & Cleaning
There is time in between sessions to open doors and get fresh air in. There is a door straight out into the garden. In addition the door can be slightly ajar during the session. (There are no windows)
I do not have a waiting area in my home studio. However, I will ensure sufficient time in between clients to allow for you to leave undisturbed and for me to clean the surfaces before you arrive:
- Mats & Yoga Bricks (if you use mine)
- Reformer and other Studio Equipment
- Door handles
- Bathroom furniture
You may wish to bring your own mat. In addition you can purchase a mat and head pads from the studio.
Alternatively, bring a clean towel to place on top of the head pads or a pillow slips that head blocks can be placed inside
Hand Washing & Clothing
Hand sanitiser will be available.
We must wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, using a clean (each time) towel before starting the session.
I will wear a clean apron and mask for each client. Regular hand washing means that gloves are not necessary.
PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN MASK WITH YOU, however I will have some spare disposable ones available to use.
Use of Small Equipment
On balance it is probably simpler to omit, for the time being, the following:
- Pilates Soft Balls
- Spiky massage balls
However, you can purchase these in the Studio for personal use.
We can use (and wash after each person)
- sticky matting (machine washed)
- non latex dynaband (machine washed)
- dumbbells (sanitised after each use)
- wooden dowel and weighted bars (sanitised after each use)
Reformer Leg/Hand Straps
It is simply not practical to clean these in between sessions which occur on the same day. You will, instead, be offered disposable gloves.
I will wash the straps at the end of each day, along with the masks and aprons at 40 degrees with a bleach based laundry liquid.
Look it really is me…! Although in class, NO phone and definitely NO watch.
