Children's Yoga Workshops

Physical / Hands on adjustments 

  • Yoga Teachers will from time to time need to use physical contact when working with the participants and you accept and acknowledge this. 

  • Verbal cues are used in the first instance, however if a child is unsafe or needs assistance, then the teacher may have to intervene and use light hands on assist. In this instance, Sophie will ask for consent from the child and inform the parent after the session.

  • All participants take part in classes at their own risk. Whilst we take all reasonable steps to make the classes safe, Sophie Rey accepts no liability for any injury or damage suffered by any participant or any other person in a class. 

  • Parents are responsible for their child’s safety before and after class times. Please do intervene with any incidents or upsets that might occur (in the class) with your child. The teachers are there to teach the yoga and not get involved in such occurrences (such as needing the toilet, or nose wiping, tears, etc). If you are staying in the class, either watching or participating, please do keep an eye on your child to ensure that they remain focused on the teaching and class content. This will help keep the child happy, and focused, but most of all safe. (Then if parents aren't staying we need to be able to get hold of them urgently). 

Illness / Medical Conditions 

  • It is your responsibility to seek appropriate medical approval regarding any pre-existing condition of a participant and to disclose any such condition to us before booking. Sophie Rey accepts no liability arising from the medical condition of any participant.

Photography / Filming

  • Photographs and videos are never taken of participants during Yoga classes. This is a sacred time for you and Sophie respects your confidentiality. 

  • Photographs / videos are taken during Art workshops. 

  • If you do not wish us to photograph / video you, or your child, please notify us in writing. These images are used for marketing and general promotional purposes. 

General

  • Children should wear comfortable / appropriate clothing with no shoes and socks or tights for their lesson. 

  • Please be prompt when arriving to class. Please arrive at least 10 - 15 minutes before the class is due to start. This is to ensure your child is settled and that the class can start on time. If you arrive late and the class has already begun, your child may not be able to attend the session. Arriving late can be disruptive for both the other children and the teacher. 

  • If a participant or any other attendee is unduly disrupting a class, we reserve the right to require him or her to leave the class / wait in the reception area. No fees will be refunded.

  • If a course is full, your child will be added to a waiting list and contacted as a priority for the next group. This also relates to if your child has to drop out early for any reason.
