COVID-19 & Radiant Sol

It's chaos out there right now. It's a little scary, it's a little unknown. 

We need to be aware, cautionary and supportive of each other.

Just as we were when the bushfires struck the country. 

Deep breath in. 
Deep breath out. 

As a public place, Radiant has always had the health of our staff and the cleanliness of the studio as a top priority. As we move into this next phase of COVID-19, we want to be more transparent about what we do on the regular, what we're doing in addition, and what you can do to ensure that we can continue to practice yoga. You'll find this below. 

With all this said, it's currently business as usual at Radiant and it is safe to continue to go about your regular practice at the studio. 

Radiant is a community. A safe space. A supportive space. Let's continue to be cool, calm but rationale. Leave what we need to at the door and respect every person that comes in.

First and foremost, if you are experiencing any signs of COVID-19, please do not visit Radiant Sol for 14 days. See the DHHS Self Assessment for Radiant Sol here.


What we do on the regular
 

  • We have a team of staff who clean the studio and mats, after each set of classes. That's 3-4 times a day. 

  • We clean the studio/bathrooms/devises on a deeper level at least twice a week. 

  • We thoroughly clean props each month.

  • If teaching or support staff are not feeling well, we arrange a cover, even as a preventative. It's never worth running the risk with these things.

  • We always have hand sanitiser at reception. 

  • Rotation of mat cleaning towels 3-4 times per week. 

  • Tissues are always available.

 


What we're doing in addition
 

  • Deeper cleans of all surfaces, switches, banisters, lockers and keys, 3-4 times a day with 70% alcohol disinfectant.

  • No touching, that means no assists, no hugs, no need to touch. Hands to self. 

  • Hand sanitiser stations are now placed around the studio. These are homemade by Danielle, containing 70% alcohol disinfectant with essential oils. Currently with make-shift labels, but they're legit, more legit than other store-bought stuff. That alcohol is what you want! 

  • Cleaning props more frequently with 70% alocohol disinfectant along with our standard cleaning products which always contains Fatty Alchohol Ethoxylates and Hydrogen Peroxide.

  • Heavier rotation of mat cleaning towels 5-6 times per week. 

  • Creating more space between mats - this means we have a lower max capacity and will not accept overflow in our classes for the time being. If you have not booked in and there is no space, you will be asked to leave. 

  • No smoke, no candles, sage or Palo Santo, things that may encourage coughing for those allergic or sensitive to hayfever.

  • An extra mat cleaning station coming soon. 

 


What you can be doing 

 

  • If you don't feel well; coughing, sneezing, flu-like symptoms, please do not come to the studio - please see the DHHS Self Assessment. If you answer Yes to any of these questions, please keep clear of Radiant for 14 days. 

  • Please wash your hands frequently, for 20 seconds with soap. 

  • Please avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, mouth. 

  • Please bring a clean hanky.

  • Please cover your nose/mouth when coughing/sneezing - use your hanky, tissue, bent elbow over the fabric.   

  • Please use hand sanitiser frequently. 

  • Please bring a clean sweat/hand towel.

  • Please clean down your mat, the studio mat, and any blocks or other props that you use. 

  • Currently, any use of our bolsters and blankets will only be accepted if you bring a clean hand towel. 

  • If someone coughs or sneezes in class, please be kind and not fearful. See below for common symptoms. 

  • Limit attending back to back classes to ensure your time spent in the studio is under 2 hours. 

  • Whilst students will clean their mat and blocks down after classes, and we will do a thorough clean 3-4 times a day, you can always clean down the mat and blocks as you arrive.

  • Should we need to contact you, please make sure your contact details on your MindBody profile are up to date.
