Yoga & COVID-19
19 March 2020, updated 21 March 2020
Due to COVID-19 mitigation measures, all classes closed from Thursday, 19 March 2020. I am keeping the situation under close review. However, I am expecting this current situation to carry on for several weeks. I am hoping that I can resume classes in some form (perhaps with reduced numbers to ensure adequate social distancing) from Monday, 20 April 2020. Further information to follow.
Thank you for your understanding

One of the aims of Yoga practice is to avoid future suffering. Heyaṃ duḥkhamanāgatam is the way to express this idea in Sanskrit (YS II.16).
Heyaṃ duḥkhamanāgatam asks us to take time before we act to ensure that what we do and do not do won't increase suffering, will reduce suffering and will prevent the return of suffering.
With these thoughts in mind, I have decided to suspend my group yoga classes.
