Health & Safety

At Bondi, the safety of our guests, teachers and hosts is our main priority. To allow for a safe re-opening, we have taken the following safety & health measures. These are completely in line with the current guidelines set by the government and we will continue to adjust these measures or add new ones when necessary.

General measures taken by studio

  • Capacity: Reduced class capacity to allow for proper social distancing
  • Routing: Clear marking and routing inside and outside studio to easily maintain 1.5 meter distance and minimise passing moments. Clear marking of numbered spots in shala
