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).

IN-STUDIO PROTOCOL

This Way, Please…

March Studio Update

March 8, 2020

We Are Dedicated to Keeping You Healthy (and on the mat)


Dear Yogamaya Family, Friends, and Students,

Yogamaya’s priority is the safety of our members and instructors. With the recent global outbreak of Coronavirus COVID-19 (which now includes a few isolated cases reported in California), we want to let you know we are closely monitoring the situation and taking proactive precautions for the safety of our team members and yoga students. The lobby, bathrooms, and yoga rooms are cleaned at least once a day and the yoga rooms floors are wiped down after each class.

Additional Precautions:

  • We have added additional cleaning protocols to our regular cleaning routine.
  • Additionally, you will see antibacterial hand gel available at the two entrances that lead to main studio– these will be for everyone to use to increase club sterilization.
  • Our mats and towels are already disinfected/washed after each use. Our cleaning supplies are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-rival.
  • We are asking all team members and students if you feel at all sick, or have symptoms of the flu, take it easy for a few days and rest up at home.

Please Consider:

In addition to using the antibacterial hand gel when you come in, we’re asking you to make sure you wipe down your equipment before and after each use. Please bring your own wipes. We have a limited supply of individually wrapped antibacterial wipes available at the front desk for a dollar each. ** These are limited because currently wipes and antibacterial supplies are on backorder or out of stock from various vendors.

  • Be sure to wash your hands regularly.
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
  • Please consider bringing your own mat and towel to class.
  • Please do not come to class if you have a fever, cough or other flu symptoms, or if you have been exposed to others who have these symptoms.
  • If you exhibit symptoms in class please know you may be asked to leave by our staff or instructor.

We continually evolve our practices, so our team members and students feel comfortable coming into the studio. We are monitoring our local public health department updates as well as national CDC updates to stay up to date on all new information.

Together we can keep our Yogamaya community happy, fit and healthy.

Gratefully, Carmen & Lee for Yogamaya

HABITS OF A YOGI
 

You already know what you “should be doing” to be healthy, strong and vibrant…. You’ve read books, changed your diet, talked it over (and over and over) with your friends, taken classes, gone on retreats and spa days. You’ve taken in all kinds of information about healthy living, mindfulness, and self-care. If knowledge was all it took, you’d already be the person you know in your heart you were meant to be. Prioritizing your own healthy body, mind, and spirit can be difficult when your life is full and demanding. 

What does it take to make real, lasting changes in your life?

ARE YOU READY TO MAKE A CHANGE?
Become the kind of person who loves and accepts all the parts of themselves. Be the happy, healthy, confident, vibrant person you are meant to be.

  • Want to slow down time, feel more energetic, light, and joyful?
  • Feel at ease in your body, know your worth, and love yourself completely?
  • Want a deep sense of self, a reservoir of energy that sustains you through the highs and lows of life?
  • Know deep down that cultivating true self-care and self-love will allow you to be and give even more to the people, work, and community you care about?

Yoga Blessings Program

December 8, 2019
affordable yoga program solano county

Yogamaya’s Yoga Blessings program is a scholarship fund that supports students and others in our community with partial and/or full scholariships for class passes and workshops. Current students can donate expiring classes or purchase classes for gifting to this fund in order to support others in our community. 

We built this fund to support current or new students who may be experience temporary and unexpected financial hardship, personal loss, may be going through recovery or othwise could benefit from this community support. This fund is also meant to include first responders and military who may be on temporary duty in the area or are newer to yoga and could benefit from its healing potential. 

Our approach to dispersing classes includes trusting in the compassion hearts and wise judgment of our dedicated teachers, who in 2020 will be given a Yoga Blessings “credit” to share with students they may nominate for the sholarship program. This feels right in that it is often the ever-present yoga teacher that may first learn of someone in the community for whom a Yoga Blessing offering would make sense.

To donate either money or expiring passes, people can contact us directly via email.  We are not a 501c3 non-profit, so cash contributions are not tax deductible.  That being said, the contributions go directly toward the program.  Moreover, throughout our first year as owners we have written off literally thousands of dollars worth of yoga in-house before deciding to expand this program. 

If you have any questions, would like to make a donation or would like to nominate a scholarship reciepient, please do not hesitate in contacting us.

Yours in Gratitude, Carmen and Lee at Yogamaya
