Privacy & Terms
As we set up more online yoga options we will update our Terms and Conditions to comply with our Association's guidelines and directives and to be covered by Insurance in this new environment. Please make sure you check back in to read and understand the requirements as updates are being made.
Updated 9 November, 2021
Living Yoga Sanga is now offering online and in-studio classes, there are changes from time to time - we'll keep you updated. Remember it's important to look after yourself and those around you with the possible spread of the covid-19 virus. So if you are coming down with covid -19 type symptoms please stay home until you're well and ready to participate. At this time the NSW government restrictions are 20 spaces available per class, QR codes on entry, you can show your vaccine passport and wear a mask or show an exemption; your health information is private.
If you have had the Covid-19 jab we require you to attend online, re-schedule or practice at home for a LYS studio minimum of 2 weeks, or longer until any symptoms subside. Longer than 2 weeks may be requested by your teacher or practitioner. Please check in.
We believe in Health Freedom and creating a safe space for each individual to make their own choices while fully respecting others in theirs. Until there are more significant long-term studies and examinations of the various implications and side effects of the Covid-19 Vaccines we have decided to err on the side of caution in the interest of reducing possible risks for everyone who uses LYS space.
This decision is based on new information surfacing from GP’s, Health Care providers, specialists in Virology, Immunology and first hand accounts, suggesting possible serious reactions where vaccinated individuals may be inadvertently impacting the health of others from detoxing through the skin, shedding or transference affecting non-vaccinated people.
