Covid-19 Safety at The Barefoot Sanctuary

We are looking forward to seeing you back with us at Barefoot indoor or outdoor events when you feel comfortable to join us. We have followed Government Advice to ensure that we can operate safely. Indoors, all rooms will be cleaned and sanitised between sessions. It may seem a bit daunting at first, but you’ll soon get used to the new normal. We hope you will enjoy being with us at The Sanctuary again soon.

All classes must be booked on-line at www.thebarefootsanctuary.co.uk For track and trace purposes you will be required to leave your contact details.
