We’re Back (again). Here’s everything you need to know…

 Have you heard the great news? We can finally re-open our doors this Friday 18th June.

Koula and I would like to say THANK YOU for your ongoing loyalty, support and for sticking by us (again) during this latest lockdown.

One thing we’ve all learned during this period is that certain things cannot be controlled. One thing we can all control is a safe return back to KAYA this Friday.  We cannot wait to see you!

As you may have already heard, this re-opening comes with strict capacity restrictions of MAX 10 per class / 50 in the club at any time (similar to Nov 20 restrictions).  We’re hopeful that these limited numbers will ease over the next few weeks.

One thing we’d like to share with you is that we are only opening this Friday because of YOU and our team. It is not financially viable for us to open with such capped patronage especially when we need to add an additional 20-30% more classes just to cater for the limited spots in each class.

However, we know how much YOU need us, which is why, despite the restrictions, we are re-opening our doors for YOU.

PLEASE, all we ask is that you keep this in mind if you find yourself getting frustrated over the next few weeks when booking classes. We’re doing our best by adding as many MORE classes to accommodate. Let’s remember to stay positive, be patient, courteous (refrain from panic booking), and above all be KIND to your fellow members when booking classes.

– Christian & Koula Ruggeri (Founders)
