Our efforts are to keep our studio germ-free include cleaning and sanitizing door handles, light switches, bathroom fixtures, floors, and often-touched areas before every class. HEPA air cleaning systems are running during class in our spacious studio which includes high ceilings. The UV-C lights will be turned on after hours. Front door is left open when weather permits to allow fresh air to circulate.

Students are required to sign up for class via MindBody prior to arriving at the studio at least one hour before class begins. All payments are to be processed online through MindBody prior to arriving. This is to protect the students as well as the staff. No “walk ins” will be permitted. Please give your teacher your name so we can check you in upon arrival. We also ask that you pre-register for live streaming classes. If no one signs up for a session one hour before a class begins, that session will be cancelled.

Classes size is limited to 6-7 (less than 25% capacity) with a waitlist of 4. If you register for a class and then cannot attend, please cancel your reservation at least 2 hours prior to class starting. Any no-shows or late cancellations (less than 2 hours before class begins) will be charged a $14 late cancellation/no-show fee. No exceptions.
HOURS OF OPERATION
Our studio doors will open 10 minutes before the start of class (no sooner) so we can ensure the space is properly disinfected. You may wait in your car or outside until we open the doors. Please arrive on time. Students will not be admitted into the studio once class begins.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Please wear mask upon arriving, while in the lobby, and while walking around the studio and in the common areas. We also ask that masks be worn during class. Please ensure mask is comfortable and you are able to breathe through it.
RECEPTION AREA/RESTROOM HALLWAY
Please honor the personal space of others. Please do not gather in the reception area or restroom hallway and practice social distancing. If someone is near the cubby in the reception area, please sit in one of the blue chairs or wait outside until they have entered the practice area. Once in the practice space, maintain 6 ft distance at all times. If someone is in the restroom, please wait on your yoga mat.
· Once you arrive to the studio, please remove your shoes and place in the cubbies. Please do not wear your shoes in the practice area or bathroom as floors are disinfected daily.
· Wash your hands or use the hand sanitizer before and after class. If possible, please bring your hand sanitizer with you.

Please only bring necessary items into the studio. Students are advised to leave large purses and backpacks at home. Upon arrival, leave personal items in the cubbies with the exception of mat and yoga props.
We are discontinuing the use of community/shared props until further notice. Students are asked to bring yoga props such as blocks, mat, and optional strap and blanket. We will have some available for purchase.
PLACEMENT OF MATS
Our floor is marked to ensure that mats are six feet apart. Please use the designated spaces along the barred wall first. Please leave the space near the sound system/lamp empty if there are 6 or fewer students.
These are just a few things we can do to keep our community healthy and thriving!
