Covid 19 Policies

Please help YSY keep our yoga community safe by observing the following;

_Please do not arrive too early for regular midweek classes so that you may be hanging about in corridors. Where possible stay in your car.

_Bring your own yoga mat and any props plus your own water-plastic water bottle.
_Please do not attend with any cold/flu symptoms even undiagnosed – new variants appear as simple colds, or if you are on contact tracing rules.
_We will clean regularly, provide hand sanitizer and hand washing.
_Please wear a mask if you are in corridors near people and when not actively in class(this is always under review your teacher can update you).
_Masks may be worn if the teacher requests – up until the start of the class when they can be removed for the duration of the class.
_During Covid times, we will keep studio windows more open than would normally be usual in winter, and the studio door ‘ajar’ for extra ventilation.
_With this in mind, it is your responsibility to wear warmer clothes that you can remove and put back on, according to your personal body temperature during a class.
_We may take a temperature check at the studio door – anyone who does not pass the thermometer ‘green light’ will not be admitted. Check your own before you leave.

We reserve the right to ask for your name, mobile number, and email if there is a Covid infection associated with a time you attended a class event or retreat so that others in your class event or retreat group can be informed.

Events/Workshops/Retreats – I understand I must take an LF test and be negative and be able to show evidence. I acknowledge that this test must be taken on the day of the event, workshop, or retreat. (not applicable to weekly classes.)

What do they say about Yogaspace Yorkshire?

Yoga at Patrick Brompton Hall is a very special experience.
The beautiful and peaceful yoga studio is the perfect setting for yoga practice.


I have been to many different yoga retreats both in the UK and overseas and this one was by far the best.
My advice? Book it now!


I want to do your yoga Nidra class again – I slept so well. Thank you.


I have taken part in several Kundalini yoga classes during retreats at Patrick Brompton Hall and have loved all of them.
I was a novice to this particular yoga but the classes catered for all abilities and I was immediately made to feel comfortable.
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my Kundalini yoga journey and I can’t wait to go back again soon!


The Women’s Group has been an amazing, welcoming, warm experience.
The positive energies and collective female wisdom has been brilliant – the thought provoking sessions followed by the yoga and final gong bath was the perfect balance – thank you Emma – and please can we do it all again!


Emma’s Kundalini classes are ‘first-class, a relaxed and professional atmosphere. Emma is fabulous teacher and really opens you to a new way of being while you show yourself self-love and care’


I came on retreat and stayed at the cottages with my oldest daughter in June 2018 and January 2019.

Emma and Charlie are the perfect hosts they made us feel completely welcome in their beautiful home which sits in beautiful grounds surrounded by spectacular views of Yorkshire.

Emma & Beth

From the first moment of entering the beautiful hall, I knew this studio is something special. A light spacious yet so cozy and calm yoga space is hard to find. Relaxation comes naturally and yoga is so much more enjoyable in these beautiful surroundings. Emma is am amazing kundalini yoga teacher and divine when playing the gong. Her classes are challenging yet respect individual circumstances and make you feel so much better instantly. She is very knowledgeable, connects theory and practice with ease, is full of energy and positive spirit and a joy to be taught by. I truly love my kundalini yoga and gong sessions with Emma


To sum it up with one word: love. The best yoga retreat I have been to.
Amazing teacher, wonderful hosts, beautiful facilities, gorgeous surroundings, and delicious food.
Absolutely loved every bit of it
