We’re back in the studios! Our goal is to maintain our warm, welcoming, joyful vibe while also helping you and our staff members feel safe enough to return. We truly appreciate your cooperation.
Our desk staff will still be smiling when you walk in, but you might not see that smile because they will be wearing a mask. Students will also be required to wear a mask before, during and after class. Basically, if you’re in the building…mask up! We didn’t make the rules, we’re just following them, so we ask that you treat our staff with kindness as the follow these protocols set in place by the government.
We will not be offering mat or towel rentals or sharing props such as blocks and straps, so please bring your own. We still have some used rentals for sale. Used straps & blocks are $5 each, used mats and yogitoes towels are $25 each. Lots of brand spanking new mats, towels and props in the house, too. Products we sell.
We will be taking staff AND students’ temperatures before entering the yoga room. We have no-touch forehead thermometers and taking your temp will take about 1-2 seconds. Anyone with a temperature above 100.3 will not be permitted to enter the yoga room.
Drastically reduced capacities. We will be operating at 25% capacity in order to maintain 6 ft social distancing requirements. New mat markers will be placed down and it will be imperative that you take your mat to a marker. A sticker should be located at the back center of your mat. Due to significantly reduced capacity, we will not be able to offer community classes (i.e. Happy Hour & $10 Thursdays) Simply put, we have to prioritize our members during this time. We also highly recommend you sign up online in advance. Our 1-Hour cancellation window policy will remain. See All Studio Policies Here.
Heightened cleaning procedures and policies. If you’ve been to our studios, you know that we are constantly cleaning. We have always cleaned the yoga room in between every single class and that will continue. But we now have a hospital grade disinfectant that will be used on our floors and high-touch areas such as door knobs, bathrooms and cubbies after Every. Single. Class. Students will not be permitted to enter the yoga room until the desk staff or instructor is done cleaning.
Ventilation. Since day one, we have invested in something called an ERV at each location (aka a $10k ventilation system). Essentially, it blows in air from outside, sucks out bad air. (Ever notice that our yoga room doesn’t stink even after a sweaty session? Yeah, that’s why.) We’ve always run it in between classes, but now we will be running it throughout the entire class so you will always have fresh air coming into the room. Note: This high powered ventilation system tends to drop the temp/humidity in the classroom. This means that it might not (probably won’t) be a full blown 99 degrees in the room. It’ll be closer to 90-95 with incredibly high air quality. You’ll still sweat, we PROMISE!
You will still be getting your beloved lavender towel. But we will be taking serious precautions when making them. Desk staff will wear a mask and gloves while making the towels. We will also wear a mask and gloves when passing them out through the room. Instead of placing it on your forehead, we will place it on / beside your hand.
Thanks again for your understanding and cooperation and we cannot wait to see you back in the studio! Until then, we hope you will join us for our virtual classes. Click here to speak to someone about your membership.
