Update on Tribe Studios (January 2021)

Happy New Year Tribers!
 
We apologise for our lessened communication over the past wee while, like many of you, our team has been taking some time to enjoy the holidays and process the continually changing information regarding COVID-19. We do sincerely hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and were able to bring in the New Year looking toward what we can all hope will be brighter days soon. 
 
Following the First Minister’s briefing on Monday January 4th 2021, we wanted to update you regarding how the current COVID-19 safety regulations and restrictions will impact all your favorite Tribe services.
 
In accordance with the current regulations, we can confirm that all three of our studio locations will remain temporarily closed at this time and until it is determined that we can safely resume our regular operations, we will ONLY be offering online services for the time being.
 
Tribe Online has been growing and like many things is ever changing! Since our last update we have now added some new pricing options, a Video On Demand platform and have a fresh new schedule coming out soon that will include livestream and pre-recorded classes.

  • On Demand & Livestream Membership: £9.50/week
  • Unlimited On Demand Only Membership: £5.00/week

This latest announcement is disheartening, and we completely share your disappointment concerning the news; however, to keep one another, the NHS and our community safe we will continue to diligently follow all government guidance.
 
During this time we have furloughed the majority of our staff resulting in reduced administration hours of our management team. Please refer to the updates page of our website and our social media platforms for current information and expect a 5 working day response to any email and message inquiries. 
 
Against all odds we will keep the Tribe Vibe alive! Your continued support drives our whole team to keep going, there is no way to thank our Tribe Family enough for the love you have been sending us and we will keep you all as up to date as possible on any changes and news.
 

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.
