As a program whose primary goal is the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of our clients, we have carefully weighed the benefits of community with the risks of gathering. Using recommendations from various health authorities, we will be following these measures to lower the risk of infection in our studio while still enjoying the important benefits of community:
FRESH AIR - Our facility has large bay doors that will remain open as much as possible, even during the colder months. We will also be blasting the heat, but we recommend dressing in layers and bringing socks as you may feel a draft.
HEPA FILTER - We are fortunate to have a large HEPA air purifier in our practice space. According to the EPA, "when used properly, air cleaners and HVAC filters can help reduce airborne contaminants including viruses in a building or small space. By itself, air cleaning or filtration is not enough to protect people from exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. When used along with other best practices recommended by CDC and others, filtration can be part of a plan to protect people indoors."
MASKS - As per the city mask ordinance, everyone is required to wear a mask while entering and exiting the studio and anytime you are not on your mat. Once on your mat, your mask can be removed as mats are properly distanced in accordance with the health department recommendations.
DISTANCING - We have strictly limited attendance to 3 clients so that we can space mats more than 6 feet apart and maintain distance throughout your time in the studio. Instructors will not be giving any adjustments.
SANITIZED PROPS - We’ve always taken good care of our equipment, but we’re doubling down. We sanitize mats and blocks between each use with a commercial virucide, and launder blankets and bolster covers after every use. You are also welcome to bring your own equipment.
