Before you contact us, maybe you can find your answer here?

Covid-19

Please maintain our safety guidelines when visiting the studios:

Stay home when you have symptoms
Cold symptoms, coughing, shortness of breath, elevated temperature or fever, or the sudden loss of taste and smell.⁠ If you live with someone who shows these symptoms, or who have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 within the past 21 days, please stay home as well

Wear a mask in the reception area and dressing rooms
While at Delight Yoga, we strongly advise you to wear a mask in the reception area and dressing rooms before and after your yoga class. While in the yoga class, you are free to take off your mask.

Keep 1,5-meter distance 
While at Delight Yoga, keep a safe and respectful distance from other students, teachers, and hosts. This starts when you walk in the door to check-in. When you enter the studio, follow the marks on the floor, and use the designated spots in the shala to place your mat. Try to stay on your mat during the class and respect each other space when entering and leaving the shala.

Use the hand sanitiser / wash your hands⁠
There is hand sanitiser available in all studios. Please make sure to use the hand sanitiser when you walk in and please wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds after you’ve used the bathroom.⁠

Arrive / leave within 10 minutes
Arrive 10 minutes before the class starts at the earliest, and please leave within 10 minutes after your class ends so we can avoid having too many people in the studio. You can take tea to go, so bring your thermos. 

Check-in with the host / teacher before class
We will not be using coins to check-in. When you arrive at the studio, please check in with the host (or teacher) and share any injuriesor important information before class.

Bring your own mat / towel / pillowcase 
In case there is no other way for you, you can also bring a yoga towel to use on top of one of our yoga mats. Ask the host for a clean mat that you can use, and please make sure to clean it and give it back to the host after use. There are no mats available for outdoor classes. Eye pillows and straps will not be used in any classes.

Bring your own (thermos) drinking bottle
We also ask students to bring their own (thermos) drinking bottle, as we can't provide glasses at the moment. We provide tea and water for you to fill up your drinking bottle in all our studios.

Dress and shower at home 
To reduce the amount of traffic in the studios we ask you to change clothes and shower at home. In case there's no other option for you, please quickly change in the dressing room. The showers are closed for the time being. No worries, you can still use the restroom but we ask you to clean it carefully after use.

Adjustments
During your practice, teachers will walk around through the shala to give you verbal adjustments. The teachers will also give you the chance to indicate if you do not prefer them to come close to you. There will be NO (hands-on) physical adjustments at Led classes. Teachers of Mysore classes are adjusting hands-on by using clean towels brought by students themselves.

Chanting
We have decided to choose the safe route: teachers can chant softly, and students can join internally through humming or joining mentally. This also includes chanting of the 'ohm'.

Respect quarantine periods
Like with everything so far, we are respecting the guidelines of the RIVM. This also means that our teachers, hosts and staff can not come to the studios if they have travelled to countries marked as 'orange' or 'red' by the RIVM. We would like to request you to respect these guidelines too.

As we have very limited space we need to do our utmost with the limited mats. Therefore, we ask you to please be very mindful of your registrations and cancellations. 

Please, reserve your class beforehand as there will be no walk-in spots available.⁠ Bookings are open 8 days in advance for all classes and can be made through the regular schedule.

​When a class is fully booked, you can put yourself on the waiting list. Whenever a spot opens up, everybody on the waiting list will receive an e-mail. First come, first serve.

Want to cancel? Please always cancel your booking, and try to do so at least 6 hours prior to the class so that somebody else can get your spot.  

With our limited capacity, we want to make sure as many people get the chance to practice with us again.⁠

We now have a waiting list option so you don't miss out on your favourite class. When a class is fully booked, you can put yourself on the waiting list. Whenever a spot opens up, everybody on the waiting list will receive an e-mail. First come, first serve.

As we have to deal with a limited number of mats in class, we decided to programme a new schedule with studio classes, outdoor classes and online classes. The online classes can be re-watched for 7 days after being live-streamed. This could give all our students the opportunity to book and attend classes at all times. We also changed the schedule to make sure there is more time between the classes to minimize the total amount of people in the studio at the same time. 

We will be practising the following measures to make sure your practice is as safe and peaceful as possible:

Social distancing
Students can follow the designated areas and arrows in the studios to keep a 1,5-meter distance from each other. We measured out a heart-to-heart distance in our studio with 1,5-meter distance. Mats can be placed in between the designated areas in the shala. 

Cleaning in between classes
We will make sure to clean the shalas thoroughly in between classes in order to create clean spaces where you can truly relax. 

Hand sanitizer will be available
We will provide hand sanitizer around our studios for you to use.

Adjustments
During your practice, teachers will walk around again through the Shala to give you verbal adjustments. The teachers will also give you the chance to indicate if you do not prefer them to come close to you. There will be no physical adjustments at Led classes. Teachers of Mysore classes are adjusting hands-on by using clean towels brought by students themselves.

Chanting 
We have decided to choose the safe route: teachers can chant softly, and students can join internally through humming or joining mentally. This also includes chanting of the 'ohm'.

Respect quarantine periods
Like with everything so far, we are respecting the guidelines of the RIVM. This also means that our teachers, hosts and staff can not come to the studios if they have travelled to countries marked as 'orange' or 'red' by the RIVM. We would like to request you to respect these guidelines too.

We always loved providing you with everything you need for your yoga practice. To ensure the highest level of hygiene we ask you to bring the following for the time being: 

Bring a mat or yoga towel
In case there is no other way for you, you can also bring a yoga towel to use on top of one of our yoga mats. Ask the host for a clean mat that you can use, and please make sure to clean it and give it back to the host after use. Yoga mats are also available for purchase in the Delight Shop.⁠

Bring a pillowcase or towel
In case you would like to use our props, bring a pillowcase or towel to protect the surface.

Bring a (thermos) drinking bottle
We also ask students to bring their own (thermos) drinking bottle, as we can't provide glasses at the moment. We provide tea and water for you to fill up your drinking bottle in all our studios.

Come dressed in yoga clothes
As there’s very limited space to use the changing rooms, we ask you to change at home. In case there's no other option for you, please quickly change in our dressing room. If possible, please change at home to spend the least amount of time in the dressing rooms. The showers are closed for the time being.

 

As we have very limited space we need to do our utmost with the limited mats. Therefore, we ask you to please be very mindful of your registrations and cancellations. 

Please early cancel your class at least 6 hours prior to the class so that somebody else can get your spot.

With our limited capacity, we want to make sure as many people get the chance to practice with us again.⁠

To reduce the amount of traffic in the studios we ask you to change clothes and shower at home. You can still use the dressing room to hang your coat or take off your shoes, but please make sure you arrive at the studio fully dressed in your yoga attire to minimise the time spent in the dressing rooms. ​ No worries, you can still use the restroom but we ask you to clean it carefully after use.

We've created a schedule of live-streamed online yoga classes, so you can also continue your yoga practice with your favourite Delight Yoga teachers at home. We decided that the online classes are here to stay since we received so many positive reactions about the classes.

You can book a livestream class through the regular schedule. Before the class starts you will receive a link to join the class. 

Online yoga classes on YouTube can be viewed up to 7 days after they have been live-streamed. The link will expire seven days after their original live-stream date. 

Online yoga classes on Zoom can NOT be viewed after they have been live-streamed due to privacy reasons.

We now also offer outdoor yoga classes in Amsterdam and Den Haag. You can book your class through the regular schedule.

You can find the addresses of all our outdoor locations here.  

Please always bring your own yoga mat to an outdoor yoga class. 

We strongly advice students, teachers and host to wear a mask in the reception area and dressing rooms before and after your class. Feel free to take off your mask when you are on your yoga mat in the yoga class.

About my physique

To avoid poor digestion, it’s highly recommended not to eat 2 hours prior to yoga practice. If you are very hungry, have something light, such as a fruit. As a rule: never practice yoga if you are too hungry, or too full. It’s also highly recommended to not drink within 30 minutes before, or during yoga practice. Furthermore it’s recommended to wait 30-45 before eating and drinking after yoga, to allow your mind and body to assimilate relaxation or shavasana.

If you can, have a refreshing shower before yoga, or wash your hands, feet and face. It’s not advisable to smoke before yoga. After practice, leave the sweat on your body so that the skin can re-absorb the eliminated hormones and minerals.

Respect the cycle of the body, and take it easy during your period. During the first days of menstruation avoid intense practice and especially inverse postures such as head- and shoulder stand. Also avoid intense belly movements such as in navasana (the boat) as well as strong backward bends and twists. Let the teacher know, and you will be given adapted postures.

Please let the teacher know if you have any injuries, pains or if you have had surgery that may be relevant to yoga practice. This could be anything: knee pain, back problems, high blood pressure or other complaints.

We recommend our students not do yoga in the first trimester, and just to attend the Prenatal classes after the 3rd month. We give pregnancy yoga weekly, you can find them on our regular schedule.

Before entering the class, please always tell the instructor that you are pregnant or have just given birth, so that he/she can show you custom poses where needed.

Remember that it is your yoga practice and your body. Be patient and be mindful. Differentiate between ambition and enthusiasm. Meet your ambitions with calmness, curiosity and observation. Don’t push yourself too hard when pressing your body into postures. Listen to your body and get to know your own limits – respect yourself. Keep focusing on the essence of yoga practice: breathing and awareness.

If you feel nauseous, have a headache or other complaints after yoga, it can be due to a variety of factors. Yoga postures or asanas stimulate many systems of the body, and elicit many processes, as for example, the elimination of toxins. When these toxins circulate through the body, you may experience physical effects. Other causes for feeling uncomfortable may be mental. Speak with the teacher for advice and guidance. It’s not abnormal to be emotional during or after yoga (sorrow, joy, anger, bliss, etc.). Observe arising and passing emotions and… breathe!
