We remain a studio dedicated to providing practices with heart, depth and integrity. Thank you for your patience while we create systems and standards to ensure the safety of our community. It is important to us to be very thoughtful, deliberate and thorough as we put plans into place to re-open.
The following guidelines are intended for our community, students, teachers, and anyone entering Bella Yoga. Your sincerest attention is appreciated.
We have a social responsibility to protect and take care of each other. The trust, health and safety of our community is our number one priority, and we ask for your assistance in keeping yourself and others safe and healthy.
We look forward to continuing to provide a safe, supportive, and healthy yoga environment to our beloved yoga community. We are committed to keeping our yoga community connected, thriving and strong.

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.
STUDIO CAPACITY/LATE CANCELLATION
Classes size is limited to 7 for yin and 6 for all other classes with a waitlist of 4. If you register for a class and then cannot attend, please cancel your reservation at least 4 hours prior to class starting. Any no-shows or late cancellations (less than 4 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.
Classes will end a few minutes early to allow teachers time to clean the studio. For this reason and for your personal health and safety, we ask that after-yoga socializing be done outside and not in the reception area or in the practice space so we can do the needful to ensure the studio is sanitized properly after class.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Please wear mask upon arriving, while in the lobby, and while walking around the studio and in the common areas. While masks are not required during yoga practice, they are encouraged. We ask that masks be worn during class as much as possible. If you need to remove your mask, do so only once the teacher begins class. Return to wearing your mask once class is finished and while moving around the studio. Please ensure mask is comfortable and you are able to breathe through it. Your teacher will be wearing a mask during your visit.
Please do not wear gloves inside the studio.
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. You may wear a pair of clean socks if you need foot covering.
Wash your hands or use the hand sanitizer before and after class. If possible, please bring your hand sanitizer with you.
Please clean/disinfect your yoga mat at home prior to coming to class, once you get home from class and upon arrival to class. Please use a solution of water and at least 70% alcohol. We will provide the supplies to wipe down your mat before class, however, we encourage you to bring your own mat cleaner to avoid touching the same spray bottle as others. We also ask that you wipe your mat down thoroughly at home after class.
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 (including rental mats) until further notice. Students are required 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.
Please wear your mask. You may exit the practice space one at a time. Use the hand sanitizer on your way out.
LOST/LEFT BEHIND ARTICLES
Please ensure nothing is left behind. Bella Yoga is not responsible for any personal items left at the studio.
Our efforts are to keep our studio germ-free include cleaning and sanitizing door handles, light switches, bathroom fixtures, floors, and often-touched areas every day. HEPA air cleaning systems will be running during class. The UV-C lights will be turned on after hours.
