In response to our Government’s latest health guidelines we will be closing our studio for the time being (for in person group sessions and also 1-1s) HOWEVER we will still be teaching mat based classes online. In addition, we are also very busy creating an online class vault for you all to access mat classes 24/7.
Our instructors will be working hard to keep mat classes going and we plan on increasing our mat class provision - please be sure to keep an eye out our timetable for new online classes.

We have provided a series of useful links below which contain key information on how to minimise the risks of contracting and spreading the COVID-19 virus. We would politely request that you take the time to review the following guidance and ensure that you follow this as closely as is practicably possible:
With the Coronavirus situation appearing to worsen, we want to ensure that the team here at TYPP and you – our lovely clients – are mindful of the ongoing situation, which according to the WHO, does appear to be worsening.
Staying informed about the impact of the coronavirus around the world is vital to ensuring your safety and the well-being of your team and attendees. In addition to your local public health officials and local authorities, be sure to follow the: World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), which include up-to-date guidance for gathering safely.
"The public also has a vital role to play in helping us contain any outbreak by following the latest health and travel advice, and following basic hygiene precautions, such as washing hands and covering their nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing."
Please take note of this and help keep Scotland - and everyone at TYPP - safe and healthy.
Hand Sanitiser is available for all to use at Reception, in our Changing Rooms and in both Reformer and Mat studios. Also please remember to clean all equipment thoroughly after use with the anti-bacterial solution provided.
Even if you have a cold, no matter if you have not been in an infected area please can you not come to any classes or 1-1 sessions.
20 seconds or the amount of time it would take to sing the "Happy Birthday" song twice).
While it's not as effective as washing your hands with soap and water, it is still helpful if you are in a pinch. Hand sanitizers with at least 60 percent alcohol tend to be the most effective according to the CDC.
Physical contact, especially hands-on adjustments are a great way to guide you, but minimising physical contact can reduce the risk of getting sick.
Our quirky human need to touch our faces is one of the primary reasons these viruses spread so fast.
Also, many of us were taught to sneeze and cough into our hands when we were kids. There is actually a better way to prevent spreading germs. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests “covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.”
There is a lot of scary speculation flying around. Reading about deaths and outbreaks near or around you can cause a natural internal panic. This episode of New York Times’ The Daily, The Coronavirus Goes Global, provides context and perspective on the scale and relationship to other global outbreaks.
Mats should be cleaned after every class. It will avoid sharing germs as there are so many exercises that require your face and hands to touch the Mat.
Bring your own towels if you plan to use any of the pillows.
