Therefore tonights 6:15pm will be our last class until the government say we can open our doors again.
We will get through this together and come out stronger on the other side.
All memberships will be put on hold until we can reopen.
With love & Namastes
The Team at BYC
Message from us earlier in the day on Friday 20th March:
This is not an easy email to write and has been formulated after much thought and consideration for our BYC community. In light of the current circumstances, I have had to make the executive decision to close BYC with immediate effect.
We can also boost our immune system via our gut!
“We live in a symbiotic relationship with our gut bacteria,” says Prof Arne Akbar, the president of the British Society for Immunology and a professor at University College, London. “Having the right ones around, that we evolved with, is best for our health. Anything we do that alters that can be detrimental.” To feed your gut flora, Cruickshank recommends “eating a more varied diet with lots of high-fibre foods. The microbiome really likes fibre, pulses and fermented foods,” – While taking pribotices can also help with this, Prof Akbar says the best way to do it is via your diet.
Akbar also reiterates the point that we need to say active and keep exercising! To be immunologically fit, you need to be physically fit. “White blood cells can be quite sedentary, exercise mobilises them by increasing your blood flow, so they can do their surveillance jobs and seek and destroy in other parts of the body.”
It is also integral to try to stay calm during this pandemic.
Stress has been found to be very detrimental on the immune system. The stress hormone corticosteroid can actually suppress the effectiveness of the immune system by lowers the number of lymphocytes.
Therefor come to yoga, destress; which in turn will help you sleep better, yet another factor in boosting the immune system.
Lets get through this together.
p.s. did you know laughter is a proven immune system booster as well…!!! Any BYCers knows BYC is always full of laughter! So come to BYC to yoga, laugh, unwind, together!
14-15 years of age must be accompanied by an adult (over 18 years old) each time they practise. We offer an £8 Drop In rate for under 14-15 year olds.
16 and 17 year olds must be accompanied by an adult (over 18 years of age) on their first visit. After their first accompanied visit, they are then able to come to class on their own.
In both cases adult (18+) will need to countersign their completed registration form.
Latecomers Policy at BYC hot yoga:
If it is your first time practising at BYC, you need to be in the yoga room from the very beginning of class. This is to ensure that the teacher knows you are new and if you are working with any illness or injuries, so they can take good care of you.
Hot Yoga: Latecomers, who have practised at BYC, will be permitted into class ONLY before the end of the first breathing exercise, at the discretion of Managers and Reception staff.
All other classes: Students are required to be in the room for the start of the class. This is for their own safety and to cause least disruption to the class.
BYC Refund Policy:
All BYC Class Cards are non refundable, non freezable & non transferable.
We will of course hold class cards for pregnancy and/or medical reasons. For medical/injury class card hold we require a doctor, physio, chiropractors (or whoever you are seeing in regards to the issue) note, attaining to the issue and that it has been keeping you from your yoga, emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
