Corona protection concept

(As of October 16th, 2020)

The protection concept was created in accordance with the framework specifications for protection concepts for sports activities of the Federal Office for Sport FOSPO in cooperation between the two professional yoga associations, Yoga Schweiz Suisse Svizzera and the Swiss Yoga Association.

The safety and health of our participants are our top priority, which is why the following protective measures must be observed. According to the canton of Lucerne, events with up to 100 people as of October 16, 2020 are permitted without official permission. There are never more than 100 people at the 2020 Yoga Festival. Furthermore, we orientate ourselves and adhere strictly to the hygiene and distance rules of the BAG.
