About Us

At Yoga at the Reach our teachers all share the same love for yoga and helping people on their own unique yoga journey.

  • Covid Update:

    Dear Friends,

    Yoga at the Reach will be re-starting in-studio classes from 7th September.  The studio can only accommodate 10 (Mysore only), 6 & 4 students in either room and we are having to stagger our start times for both cleaning and safety purposes.

    For some time, things will be a little different from how they have been!

    It is vital we all follow the government guidelines to keep us all safe.

    The studio has mat spaces marked out on the floor for your safety.  These must be used. These are 6 spaces in the large studio and 4 spaces in the small studio.

    Please note that we do need to ventilate the studio well, so strongly suggest wearing thin layers to the classes for your personal comfort.

    You will need to bring your own mat and props moving forward.

    All the teachers are helping to sanitise the studio after every class so we are asking you not to arrive more than 5 minutes early nor late for the class as you may be refused entry.

    Most classes will have in-studio and on-line bookings available.  Bookings will be on a first come, first served basis and repeated no-shows may result in your attendance being denied.

    There are bound to be up’s and down’s to this folks but we kindly ask that you are respectful of our policy of the Covid outbreak.

    For more details, please see below.

     

  • Our two studios:

    We offer a wide variety of yoga and classes, courses and workshops. 

    We offer two areas of expertise.

    Ashtanga Yoga and Mysore.  We are fortunate enough to have Sheffield's only KPJAYI  Authorised teacher in the form of Nicola Harpin at the Reach.  Our highly qualified Ashtanga team all have regular practices and follow the practice schedule as set out by KPJAYI.  Please see details on Sharath's website https://sharathyogacentre.com/europe/

    We run the only Mysore programme in Sheffield and cater for all of those seeking to learn about the unique benefits of the ashtanga style and the way it is taught.

    In addition to Ashtanga and Mysore we offer a host of other amazing yoga classes with Sheffield's finest specialist teachers.

    Pre and Post Natal classes.  We offer the widest range and number of classes for pregnant mum's and make it our mission to make pregnancy, birth and beyond a special and unforgettable time with our classes.  Our highly trained teachers hold a wealth of experience and genuinely want our mum's have the best births they can.  The techniques taught in our classes always get amazing feedback and are the key to calm and successful births.

    We are honoured to nurture and support Sheffield's mum community.

    Ensure there is not a queue inside the building.  If there is, wait your turn for access to either the stairs or the lift.

    If wishing to use the stairs, wait at the blue floor sign by the lift to allow people to safely pass on the stairs.

  • Covid guidance on yoga studio etiquette on arrival and departure:

    In the reception area masks must be worn by everybody.

    The teacher will meet and greet you upon arrival and you will be asked to use hand sanitizer.

    The teacher will take your temperature with the thermometer gun.  This will be logged.  If you run to the studio, please take this into account and give yourself adequate time to cool off.

    If the thermometer gun gives a happy face sign, you can access the studio to attend the class.  If it shows a too high or too low temperature you won’t be able to attend.  We kindly ask that you don’t try to attend class with any Covid symptoms.

    Bring minimal personal items.  All items must be put in the pigeon holes used for shoes in reception only.  Do not hang items from the wooden screen.  The changing rooms will not be assessable.

    Beat feet must be sanitised before entering the studio.

    During the Covid outbreak there is to be no hands-on adjusting only verbal instructions.

    All teachers and students must maintain the 2m distance rule.

    On entry to the studio, please find a space for your mats within the sectioned off spaces on the studio floor.

    You must bring your own yoga mat and props.

    Please note that the toilets and kitchen will only be accessible by teachers. You will be able to use the toilets in the stair wells.

    Post class etiquette:

    All personal items must be taken away with you.

  • Supporting trainee teachers in Sheffield

    Apart from offering a bursary to trainee students, Yoga at the Reach welcomes trainee teachers to observe our yoga classes but kindly asks that the studio be contacted in advance to make arrangements to attend.

    Due to the high rate of attendees in some of our classes, those requesting to observe may not be able to attend the class of their choice but may be offered an alternative class on a different day and time.

    We respectfully ask that trainee teachers do not book into classes as participants as this uses up the spaces for genuine students.

    All enquiries regarding observation of teachers and class should be directed to nicola@yogaatthereach.com.

    Thank you.
