I'ts been a long time since we've been able to say that, and believe me, you've been missed!
When we had to close in March we were hopeful for a temporary hiatus. At this point, we wanted to give you an update on how and when we will be re-opening, being mindful to keeping our yogis, instructors and studio safe from COVID-19 virus.
First and foremost, we want to give a special thanks to our instructors for their care and commitment to provide the best experience possible for everyone!
We take our responsibility to your health and safety, and that of our instructors very seriously and want to ensure the right plan is in place to support a safe reopening.
We've always thought of our yogis and instructors as family, and to that end, we've put new sanitizing protocols in place based on the CDC Guidelines for COVID-19 to make sure that we provide a safe, clean and enjoyable surroundings. Here's what we've laid out:
All autopay memberships were suspended in May. Those who paid for March, April and part of May will receive a credit equal to the amount paid to be applied to your account.
In order to be in accordance with the new cleaning and sanitizing guidelines, the class schedule will be modified to accommodate maintaining a safe environment for our practice. Please check MindBodyOnline.com and our website for updates to class schedules. We need everyone to get on MindBodyOnline and reserve your spot. It is a first come first serve basis now.
We know not everyone is going to be comfortable practicing at the studio yet. To that end, online streaming will be coming soon.
STANDARDS OF HEALTH
In order to maintain our high standards of health and hygiene, going forward we will need your help:
Before coming to the studio, perform a personal health check, if you have a fever higher than 100.4 or are sick DO NOT COME to the studio. If you show any signs of illness while present at the studio or do not follow our safety protocols, we will ask you to leave.
Please wash or sanitize your hands upon entering the studio. Hand sanitizer will be available at the front door.
INSTRUCTOR MANDATORY HEALTH SCREENING
Each instructor will have their temperature taken upon arrival at the studio, and will wash their hands before and after each class.
If anyone shows signs of illness while working they will immediately leave the premises.
High traffic and touch areas are regularly and thoroughly cleaned using a disinfectant that is known to kill viruses. Classroom floors and handles, faucets, toilets door knobs will all be disinfected regularly.
As local mandates require, clients must wear masks or other facial coverings upon entering the studio but not during exercise.
Class capacity has been reduced, and will be strictly enforced, to adhere to social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC. Yogis and instructors will maintain at least six feet of space inside the studio.
There will be no yogis waiting in the lobby area as per protocol.
BYOG (BRING YOUR OWN GEAR)
Mat rental and yoga props (blocks, bolsters, straps and blankets) will not be available during this time. Please bring your own mats, towels and props.
Our retail items will not be available for the duration of the COVID-19 restrictions.
We will be happy to place orders for mats, bolsters, straps and blankets for you. Manduka Bolsters are $54, Manduka Blocks are $13/each, Manduka Straps are $14 and Indian Blankets are $25. Orders will not be placed until a minimum order can be placed. Please note: All sales are final.
CONTACT FREE CHECK IN
To ensure a safe and seamless check in, reservations are required. Please use the MindBodyOnline.com website to reserve your spot in class. Once the class starts, we will not allow entry to the studio.
RESERVATIONS AND CANCELLATION POLICY
You must pre-register for class online. If the class is full, you can choose to join the wait list. If you are moved from the wait list to the class, you will receive an auto-email from MindBodyOnline and will be responsible for either attending class or cancelling with a minimum of 12 hours notice. We will no longer be accepting walk-ins due to limited class capacity.
As we are offering limited spots for booking, we will strictly enforce our cancellation policy -- if you are unable to attend the class you reserved, please cancel at least 12 hours before the class starts so another person can attend. People who reserve a spot but do not show up for class will be charged a $15 no show fee. This fee will be charged to the credit card on file.
Please arrive at least 5 minutes before class starts or we reserve the right to cancel your reservation and give it to someone on the wait list.
DESIGNATED MAT PLACEMENT
Floor stickers have been laid out to designate where to place your mat. Please align the top of your mat with the sticker.
OUR PLEDGE TO YOU
We've put all the appropriate guidelines and protocols into place to keep everyone healthy, but everyone's got to do their part. We can get through this individually or we can work together and all get through this stronger.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or have knowingly come into close contact with someone who has, we ask that you do not come tot the studio for 14 days and have been symptom free for three days.
If you have a cough, fever, or symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to the studio until you have been symptom-free and fever-free for three days.
If you don't feel well or have any concerns about coming in to practice, please stay home and stay safe. We'll happilly add your credit for classes when you feel comfortable coming back.
We're encouraging yogis and instructors to drastically limit person-to-person contact, including hugs and high fives.
Peace, Love and Yoga may be our motto, but we know with practice, yoga brings peace, with peace we find love. Come back to the family who wants to bring you peace! Can't wait to see you all again!
