Health and Safety
Welcome to the Stables! we are a fully covid-secure environment and are open while York is in Tier 2. We can safely have 12 people in the studio upstairs and will broadcast all classes by Zoom too, so those who prefer to stay at home get a full class experience.
This is what we are doing to keep you safe:
2m distance between people in the studio
Maximum 15 people in the building
Ensuring no mixing of households in public areas
30 minutes between classes
Hand sanitiser available
Surfaces cleaned between classes and deep cleaning each evening
Online booking only
This is what we need you to do to keep everyone safe:
Book online and give details for track and trace.
Don't come if you have any symptoms of any kind.
Don't 'mingle' in the public areas
Bring your own mat and props - you can leave them at the Stables in a named bag, we can lend a few out for regular customers but you'll need a bag if you wish to store them at the Stables, and will have to wash your mat before return. Or buy from yogamatters.com.
Wear face coverings everywhere downstairs and on stairs, remove when on the mat
Put your mat precisely on the special marks, this keeps a safe distance
Keep 1m distance except on mat
Arrive, use loo, go up to class, leave. Don't use the kitchen or hang around downstairs. Sorry to be so draconian!!!!
We are REALLY looking forward to seeing you - or meeting you for the first time.

Meet the Team
"I am truly mesmerised by the positive effects that yoga - and practising at your beautiful studio - has upon my mental well-being. I am totally converted and hooked!"
"I always feel bliss leaving your classes."
“Gillian I thought your chanting today was beautiful, experienced and natural and very effective."
"Everything about the yoga nidra pop up was great. The theme of the nidra and the meditation was lovely and Gillian came and tucked everyone in with the blankets and was very attentive."
Inspiring. Much more than just a yoga class - there's birth preparation, friendship and lots of information. The best classes in the area, by a long way.
"Fran and Zoe's Boingy Workshop was amazing and transformative it really helped taking time to break down some more challenging asanas in an accessible way."
"As a black working-class woman, I find you and your yoga totally accessible and inclusive to me. I’m totally aware of who I’m surrounded by when I attend workshops and classes but I feel that your yoga is for me too."
"Sophie is a great teacher and created such a welcoming, atmosphere, and was so good at teaching the techniques in a straightforward and easy to understand way. Loved it."
