Each yoga session runs from 45 minutes to an hour between 8am to 8pm.

Sunday through to Friday sessions will include meditation, barre, Pilates, and a variety of yoga styles.

Sally Hodgetts, one of the gym’s yoga instructors said: “We want to create an experience that is as close as possible to our usual onsite sessions, but that allows members of the community to stay active from the safety and comfort of their own homes.

The company’s co-owner, Maarten Donk then added: “The decision to close our doors was difficult but vitally important.

“The health and safety of our members is our absolute top priority.

“But it’s also our members’ health that inspired us to set up these virtual sessions as a way to keep them engaged and active through these challenging times.”

Fellow co-owner and head coach Bill Kelly said: “Although this will be a tough time for the business, we know that with the community behind us we will emerge stronger than ever.

“Right now, we have to do what is socially responsible - not what’s best for our bottom line.

“But it’s also important to us and to the community that we have an alternative way to stay active and continue to engage with one another.”
