How Do Group Class Bookings Work?
The booking system I use is Acuity Scheduling. You will need to select your time zone as online classes are international. (At this time, classes are not offered for anyone living in USA or Canada for insurance purposes). Please make sure you set up a Client Account within Acuity while doing your first booking, so it will remember any forms you have completed. If you are not logged in on your account in Acuity, you will be prompted to complete all the compulsory new client forms again. If you forget your password for Acuity, it will give you the opportunity to reset it. Payments can be made through Square or PayPal on this booking app.

When you have followed the booking steps on your selected class and made payment, you will see a confirmation screen and also receive a confirmation email with further details, like including directions to access the Zoom room if you are attending a class online. Bookings for classes close one hour before class is due to start.

For Students Attending Online
You will need a reliable internet connection and a laptop (or computer) with webcam and microphone. If you can, it’s best to set up in a space away from family and pet distractions, preferably with the laptop on a surface with similar height (e.g. so your posture can be as neutral as possible while sitting) and your mat or chair is positioned within the video camera frame. Sign into Zoom early for class and you’ll have an opportunity to adjust any of your setup. Have any props or prop substitutes near you. For example, pillows, cushions and blankets make great substitutes for bolsters.

Your microphone will be muted when entering into the room, so there is no sudden conversation heard from your end. The camera and mic will be required so we can interact and so I may provide any necessary feedback. You will be given an intro at the start on how the online class will operate before it commences. If you experience any technical difficulties in making a booking or accessing the Zoom room, please email yogawithsare@yahoo.com well before your class is due to start. Late entries to the Zoom room are not permitted, especially in hybrid class situations.

Group Class Cap and Covid Safety
Yoga with Sare classes are currently capped at 10 participants for optimal instruction.

At the time of reopening, the cap of 10 people for face to face classes will be below the number of people allowed in the studio. Other Covid Safety measures if you are attending the studio are:

  • On 11 November 2021, the mask mandate changed. They are now only required in special settings: high risk (e.g. hospitals), public transport (including taxis), the airport and on planes, school and daycare settings, and indoor hospitality establishments (front of house staff). Carry a mask with you as you never know when you might need to put one on. In yoga studio circumstances, this may apply to when you are entering or exiting the space and you are unable to socially distance from other people. You are welcome to wear a mask if it is your personal preference – before, during or after a class.
  • Check in using the Check In CBR QR Code. If you do not have a smart phone, I will check you in on mine.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available. Please use it or wash your hands before and after class.
  • Bring your own yoga mat to practice and place it on the marked out space on the studio floor to maintain social distancing.
  • Bring a bath towel if you are attending Yin & Restore to use as a barrier between your face and the bolster prop. No towel, no bolster.
  • Wipes will be available for use. Any prop, wall or floor surfaces you touch will need a wipe when you finish. All other cleaning (such as the shelving unit where bags go) will be done by Sare between and after classes.
  • If you are feeling unwell for any reason or you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms, please keep our community safe. Do not come to class and seek health advice from the ACT Covid-19 site.

Please refer to other teaching locations for their specific class caps and Covid Safety Plans. They may differ from my own.

Yoga with Sare Class Descriptions

Vinyasa Flow
Vinyasa is a style of yoga that brings the body and breath together in a flowing sequence of postures. This is an active style, but you can choose the intensity that feels right for you on any given day. The class has a range of options to suit anyone from a beginner to regular students of yoga. (In studio or online options).

Explore Flow
Explore yoga through a workshop style class. Ideal for beginners and class regulars alike, this class will examine posture foundations and equip you with ways to customise yoga to fit your needs. It also includes various breathwork practices, guided relaxations and more.

Yin & Restore
Dubbed ‘The Long Hold’, Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga are both styles that involve extended duration in one posture, anywhere from 3 minutes up to 10 minutes. Yin is passively challenging while Restorative is passively resting the body. Both allow us to observe our body shift from tension into muscular release and the mind from activity or resistance into rest. This class is a great accessible way to balance out an active lifestyle. (In studio or online options).

Gentle Flow
This Sunday morning class has been called the ‘I just rolled out of bed’ class. It starts off with a gentle joint mobilisation series and moves into a slow flow of postures to set you up for the rest of your day.

Peace Online Class
The focus of this online class is guided and self lead meditation practices. It involves gentle seated movements to ensure the body is ready and comfortable to meditate. There is use of mantra, mudra and guided practice before you move into your own meditation, held in a safe online space with a small and supportive group.

Nurture Online Class
A blend of gentle movements and Restorative Yoga, Nurture is your Sunday evening online reset button before the week starts. Grab your pillows, blankets, yoga props and a chair to use as support. Maybe even build yourself a pillow fort. We are going to get comfy in the body and calm in the mind before Monday comes.
