Saturday with Jayne Orton

Teachers Name:

Date/Time: 18/09/2021 - 10:00 am - 3:30 pm





Location: 134 King Street, Dukinfield, SK16 4LG, United Kingdom

Jayne Orton needs no introduction to MDIY, being a regular and popular visiting teacher. She started practising Iyengar Yoga as a teenager in 1975 and has visited the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune over 20 times to study directly with the Iyengars. She started to teach in Birmingham in 1980 and has continued to do so ever since. In June 2000 she was awarded a Senior Level III teaching certificate by the Iyengar Yoga Association (UK) and in December 2011 was awarded an Advanced Junior Level 1 certificate by BKS Iyengar himself. Jayne is the Midlands’ most experienced and longstanding Iyengar teacher. She also gives workshops throughout the UK, Europe and North America and conducts teacher training at Introductory, Intermediate and Senior levels.  We are delighted she continues to visit us each year – and especially delighted she’s agreed to run our first event after re-opening!

Please be aware that due to social distancing, we are limiting the number of places to 24 – so early booking is advised!

What Do I Need To Do Before Class?

  • PLEASE DO NOT COME TO CLASS IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS OR FEEL UNWELL. We have decided against any more intrusive measures, such as a health check before class or taking students’ temperature, but this relies on our students and teachers to be honest if they are feeling unwell
  • Face masks are optional
  • Please do not turn up without having booked in advance
  • There are hand sanitisers stationed at various points for you to use, as well as the washbasins to wash your hands

What Do I Need To Do On Arrival?

  • Please arrive as ready for class as possible; remove shoes/outer clothing in the changing room/corridor, and go into the hall as quickly as possible, so the next student can come in
  • Please bring your own equipment – 1 mat, 4 blocks, 2 bricks, 1 belt
  • You will not be able to use the centre’s equipment, for the time being
  • Maslen Hall has a one-way system in operation – into the hall through the equipment room, exit via the front (this is signposted)
  • You will see that we have marked out spaces in the hall for you to place your mats. Please fill up the hall from the furthest point away from the door – this will mean students arriving after you, do not have to walk past you to find a spot
  • We have created some spaces at the wall, for students who need this support – if you need this, please take one of these places
  • Please keep your yoga bag/personal belongings within your “space” next to your mat

What Will Happen During Class?

  • To ensure ventilation, the door to the hall will be left open and when possible (given weather conditions!) windows will be open. If you want windows to be closed/opened, please ask the teacher rather than do this yourself
  • There are walkways marked to allow you to move around the room e.g. to go to the toilet
  • If you use the toilet, please use the wipes provided to clean anything you have touched
  • Teachers have been asked to teach from the stage, and to walk around the room as little as possible. They will ask the class beforehand if anyone objects to the teacher walking around
  • There will be no physical adjustments, or physical contact of any kind

What Will Happen After Class?

  • We will retain a record of your booking for at least 21 days, and we will use this if appropriate to contact you or to pass your details to official bodies such as the NHS Test and Trace service or similar organisations
