Covid Info

Updated: As at 20 May 2022

This page will be updated as Covid19 circumstances unfold in Perth, so please check-in on a regular basis.

Your physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing is my priority. I want you to live free from fear and to feel empowered and resourced to make informed decisions regarding your health and wellbeing. I offer services that are inclusive, free from discrimination and that respect your personal choices.

If you feel unwell and have any flu-like symptoms, please do not come to yoga class, coaching sessions or events. Stay home, rest and take good care of yourself. In May 2022 I experienced the symptoms of Covid19 and understand the need for good self-care.

Hand sanitiser is provided at each venue I utilise, for your use.

There are currently no social distancing, mask-wearing or vaccination requirements for participants in yoga classes or events. You may continue to wear a mask, if you choose to. There is plenty of space in the church hall for you to distance yourself from other people, if you choose.

For current information about the science around Covid19, vaccinations and keeping your immune system healthy, I recommend the resources of the World Council for Health. This includes articles on:

The Covid Medical Network website also offers unbiased information from a group of senior medical doctors and health professionals concerned about the health impacts of Covid19 outbreaks across Australia.

I refer to the requirements of the Western Australian Government and the recommendations of yoga’s peak professional body Yoga Australia.

How Yoga Can Help During Pandemic Times

Research shows that regular practice, including yogic postures, breathwork, chanting and meditation reduces the body’s stress response and promotes strong immune and lymphatic system function, allowing us to naturally fight off flus and disease. In every yoga classes, you will be provided with guidance on practices that are most beneficial.

I understand that the uncertainty may be causing you fear and angst. This is a normal response to change, however I encourage you to not lose sight of life’s ‘bigger picture’ – of the human love and support around you.

A commitment to Yoga, to the multi-dimensional, spiritual aspect of our Being and to universal consciousness, provides our yogic community, with a unique opportunity to support and inspire each other. Together we can choose to ‘rise-above’ fear-mongering and stay grounded to do whatever we need to do, to care for our physical, mental and emotional well-being, and that of our loved ones.  

I encourage you to continue to maintain your regular yoga and/or meditation practice. And to: 

Manage your stress – remember that stress has a negative impact on our immune system. Do your best to manage the stress in your life, including the fears that Coronavirus may present for you or your family. Speak openly. Share your concerns. Seek support if you are anxious. Keep active. And remember to B R E A T H E.

Maintain a healthy diet – one of the best defences against illness is our diet. Eat plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and legumes that are rich in immune-building vitamins and minerals. Better than any supplement is nature’s own produce!

Practice compassion and kindness – let’s continue to be kind to each other. Kindness and positivity is good for our health! Be in your heart. Be willing to give your help to neighbours, friends or volunteer to help others in our community who might be at a distinct disadvantage during these times.

May you be well.
