Yoga Studio Re-Opening UpdateJune 11, 2020
First and foremost, we are so grateful for your support. YOU, are the reason we are still here to re-open. Thank you.
In addition to our ongoing virtual classes, we are slowing (and safely) re-opening our in-person classes. We look forward to welcoming you back to the studio as we move through our first phase of re-opening.
PHASE 1 – NEW WAYS
We are all in this together. To make sure as many people have the opportunity to practice during Phase 1, please adhere to the following.
- Limit 4-Classes live classes / week (on the honor system, for now)
- Required Preregistration Online (up to 7 days in advance)
- WAIT LIST procedures will be communicated through email and text via MindBody (turn on those notifications)
- $25 LATE CANCELLATION FEE (6-Hour Cut-off)
STEPS TO PREPARE FOR IN-STUDIO CLASSES:
STEP 1: Complete our New Liability Waiver and Release.
We require a new Liability Waiver before you can register and attend any public class. You will be emailed a link for this registration once you sign up for class.
STEP 2: Preregister for Class ONLINE
Our system and website are updated to present both Virtual classes and In-studio classes. It may seem confusing at first, but take some time to orient yourself with the new navigation. Check and recheck to ensure whether you have signed up for a VIRTUAL or an IN-STUDIO class!
Reservations for a single day’s classes can be made 7 days prior to the start of that day.
STEP 3: Don’t Forget: Update Your Calendar!
$25 LATE CANCELLATION FEE (6-HOUR CUTOFF)
As our IN-STUDIO classes are limited in space, we have implemented a WAITLIST and a LATE CANCELLATION FEE policy so that the hot room can be utilized to its maximum current capacity, with no unclaimed reserved spaces.
We understand that plans can change, but to allow waitlist students enough preparation time to get to class, you will be charged a LATE CANCELLATION FEE of $25 if you do not cancel your IN-STUDIO class reservation at least 6-hours prior to the class start time.
For WAITLIST students, if you receive a text and/or email message from us that you have been activated off the waitlist, please be courteous to reply quickly so the next student on the waitlist can be notified if you cannot attend.
STEP 4: Get Ready!
As a reminder, class sizes will be limited to 10 students, so preregistration is required! Drinking fountains, lockers, and showers are closed (but restrooms are open).
Bring everything you need. There will be NO mat and towel rentals, so come in well-hydrated and well-prepared, wearing your PPE.
Ensure that you arrive early (15 – 20 minutes before class) and ESIGN our NEW Liability & Release Form ahead of time (STEP 1).
Wear a Mask While Entering the Studio
Wear a mask or bandana covering nose and mouth at all times except when on the mat in the practice room. You may remove your mask once on your mat.
Practice 6 ft. physical distance from other students/staff members. See floor markings around the lobby and in the practice room.
NO symptoms or exposure to COVID-19.
Do not enter premises if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have traveled out of the country in the last 2 weeks.
Practice Good Hygiene
Wash hands frequently, use hand sanitizer, do not touch your face, and cough or sneeze into a cloth or your elbow. BRING a separate cloth to cough or sneeze into and another to wipe up the floor around your space in the practice room.
Bring ALL items Into Class (phone off)
Bring a plastic bag for your sweaty mat/towel when class is over, bring an extra towel to wipe up your area after class, please.
Entrance and Exit Flow
Please line up outside the front of the studio using sidewalk markings as a guide for social distancing. Approximately 15 minutes before class we will open keep propped open the front door. Please allow only one student at sign up desk. You will be asked to wait either standing or sitting on a (sanitized) bench in the hallway outside the practice room.
This Way, Please…
Please wait to be escorted into the Practice Room. Your teacher will greet you and open the door to the practice room. They will also open both doors at the end of class, thus allowing each student to enter and exit the studio and practice space without handling any doors.
NO cash transactions
Showers and dressing rooms closed until further notice. Restrooms will be available.
Thank you for reading through this post, and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces, back on the mat.
Gratefully, Carmen & Lee for Yogamaya
