Update on Tribe Studios (9 October)

Following the First Minister’s briefing on Wednesday 7 October, we wanted to update all Tribers regarding how those new COVID-19 safety regulations and restrictions have impacted on Tribe and your access to our in-studio classes in the coming weeks.

In accordance with the new regulations, sadly we can confirm that we temporarily closed our studios in Edinburgh (New Town, Quartermile and Leith Walk) from 6pm on Friday evening (9 October).

Nevertheless there is light at the end of the tunnel and we’re already looking forward to the restart which is now scheduled for Monday 2 November* (* we will endeavour to keep our clients up-to-date with any changes).

But even though our studios have temporarily closed for that period of time, you will still be able to enjoy the Tribe vibe and practice yoga with us via our growing Livestream service, which has been back in operation since the middle of September.

BOOK LIVESTREAM VIRTUAL YOGA CLASSES HERE

Tribe Online will be providing regular yoga classes featuring our skilled teachers accessible every weekday (7am, 10am, 12.30pm, 6.15pm and 7.30pm*) and at weekends (10am on Saturday and Sunday) ensuring the unique Tribe vibe will continue to flow regularly until we can reopen our studio doors again.

Thanks for your patience and understanding – love and light to all Tribers everywhere.

* subject to change; please check the live schedule on the Tribe app for the most up-to-date class times

Please relay any feedback or suggestions about how we can improve our virtual yoga classes to studio@tribe.yoga and we will happily review and revise our plans to meet the ever-changing needs of our Tribers.

Our team are working hard to get procedures in place to welcome you all back and we cannot wait to move with you all again from the 1st September! To ensure your upmost safety and comfort when retuning to the studios we have committed to a number of new procedures we would like to share with you all.

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY
You must wear a face covering at all times you are not on your mat or bike.
 
We’ve kept our facility squeaky clean while you’ve been away. We’ll continue to upkeep these increased hygiene procedures and our team have completed a full training to ensure you are as safe as possible.
 
We are working with Fever Free Zone and taking your temperature upon arrival. If you have a temperature above UK Government  guidelines, you  will not be permitted to enter the building. 
 
We will thoroughly sanitise all equipment and surfaces with Health and Safety Executive guideline disinfectant.
 
Please wash your hands – hand sanitiser will be available at all key points in studio. 
WE’VE LOWERED OUR CLASS CAPACITY
That way, there will be 2 meters of social distance between each mat.
 
Please follow floor markers through reception to the studio.
 
Use mat markers inside the studio to place your mats.
 
There will be no hands on adjustments in class.
WE’RE LIMITING THE TIME SPENT IN STUDIO BEFORE AND AFTER CLASS
Please limit your time spent at Tribe before and after class to 15 minutes. 
 
Doors will be locked outside of class times so please arrive on time.
 
There will be social distanced queueing before class.
 
Please pre-book and create an account in advance as there will be no walk-in’s for Track and Trace purposes.
 
We’ve increased transition time between classes, to reduce the amount of contact between clients.
PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN MAT AND PROPS
We will not be providing mats or props in studios and so will require you to bring your own mat and position according to markers in studio.
 
Don’t worry if you don’t have your own mat yet – we have our beautiful Tribe mats and towels available to purchase in our studios and online.
 
Weights will still be used in certain classes, and will be thoroughly sanitised between every use.
IF YOU FEEL SICK, PLEASE STAY HOME
Please check in with yourself if you have any COVID-19 symptoms (new continuous cough, high temperature, loss / change in sense of taste or smell) please stay at home or our staff may ask you to leave.
 
To help protect the well-being of our community, we’ve instructed our staff to stay home if they have even the slightest of symptoms.
 
If you are unable to come to studio, or simply not ready yet; our classes will be live streamed to keep you moving from home. See schedule here.
TOILET AND CHANGING FACILITIES WILL BE CLOSED
Toilet and changing facilities will be closed for the safety of our community. Please arrive ready for class.
 
Retail will still be available but will not be able to be tried on at this time.
 
We hope to be able to re-open showers soon so have brought in a trusted water and legionella testing organisation to review all of our studio facilities.
WE ARE CONTINUING TO MONITOR GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES AND KEEP YOU UPDATED
We have missed our Tribe so much and cannot wait to be in the studio with you all again. We’re committed to our community’s health and will keep you regularly updated if the situation changes.
 
Our phone lines are not connected during this time. We have a centralised all communication to our admin team to answer any of your queries so please email in at studio@tribe.yoga.
