STUDIO REOPENING UPDATE 

We will be opening June 8th!

We are so excited to get back into the studio!

Please know we will be limiting class sizes to follow the guidelines for social distancing and we will have restrictions in place for your well being. 
We kindly ask you to read below new policies in place during this time.

SCREENING

  1. Have you traveled in the last couple of weeks?
  2. Do you have any cold or flu symptoms?
  3. Have you come into contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with Covid 19?
  4. Does anyone in your household, or anyone you are in constant contact with fall into 1 or 2 or 3?

If you answered yes to any of these, we kindly ask you to refrain from participating in classes/programs at the studio for at least 14 days from date of contact/symptoms/arrival home. Take time to nurture yourself and join us when you are feeling better.

We have a lot of vulnerable members and those with compromised immune systems, and we want to make this environment safe for everyone!  

Lets work together to ensure that we can keep this space safe for all to land!

BOOKING CLASSES

Class sizes will be limited and you MUST pre-register online. We will NOT be accepting drop ins.  There will also be a wait list in place. See schedule HERE!

CANCELLATION POLICY

Due to limited space in our classes, pre-registration is required. If you choose to cancel your booking, we kindly ask that you give us at least 12 hours notice. This allows others on the waitlist the opportunity to get notification and to get to the studio.

If you cancel within that 12 hour window before class or do not show up for class, we will debit a class from your account. If you are a member with HY we will automatically charge you the single drop in rate of $19 (plus tax). Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We appreciate your understanding.

Please bring in only what you need for class. We will let you in 10mins prior, one at a time (6FT APART) and will have mat markers in the room so you know where to go! When you enter, we ask that you enter the yoga room and do not hang out in the lobby so everyone can get in at a timely manner.

We will have sanitizer at the front desk and ask you use it at sign in! Please swipe in as per normal.

After class we ask that you wait until the teacher opens the door and exits the space (as well as the desk staff) and you do not hang around to socialize. We will need to clear and clean the space!

Please bring your water (water cooler accessible, please wipe down after you use)

We recommend folding your mat in half and rolling it up when you are packing up!

MASKS

You are not required to wear a mask but you can if you like. Our desk staff will be for your protection. If you choose to wear a mask, we do not recommend wearing one while practicing as it can alter your breathing capacity. We will have a couple available for purchase.

There will be no hands on assisting, and the instructor will not be walking around the room. There will also be no heated classes at this time.

You may socialize as long as you stay on your mat.

If you need the bathroom at any time, the studio door will be left open and you will have access.

BATHROOM ETIQUETTE

We will be leaving the door open to the bathroom when it is not in use. When you are done with the washroom and you have washed your hands, we ask you to use the paper towel to open the door and turn the light off and then dispose of the towel.

We ask you to wait in the change room cubicles for the bathroom if needed. We ask you keep the hallway clear for those exiting the bathrooms.
