WE'RE HOLDING IN-STUDIO & OUTDOOR CLASSES.
The safety and comfort of our students is, and always has been, our number one concern at Yoga On Mars. Due to COVID-19, we've made some changes to how we're operating in the studio. The following guidelines have been set forth for students to follow in order to ensure we're operating safely. They include:
- Signing up / paying for class online beforehand.
- Bringing your own mat.
- Wiping down mat and/or props you bring to the studio.
- Keeping your distance.
- Washing your hands.
We know that we all need to do our part in combating the COVID-19 virus, so we've shared our protocol to let you know we're doing ours.
Our class size has been cut down in order to allow for adequate space between students. Class sizes will be limited to ensure six feet of distance between each attendee. No hands-on assists will be utilized in class. Person-to-person contact will be limited as much as possible.
In order to limit in-person transactions, we ask students to please sign up for class ahead of time and pay online. Students may sign up online through our Schedule page by clicking "Book Class", or by downloading the Mindbody app. When signing up online, students will be prompted to create a username and password which they will use to sign up for class each time thereafter. If you're having troubles signing up and/or paying online, reach out to the studio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the case that a student absolutely needs to pay for something in-studio, we will have you swipe your card through our reader, or provide exact change, so as to limit contact.
Bring Your Mat...
We are asking that students please bring their own mat and any props they would like to use for class. Our instructors will be creating classes that will avoid the use of blocks, bolsters, blankets, but students are welcome to bring what they need.
Student Cleaning Guidelines...
Students are instructed to wipe down their mat with our cleaning solution both before class and after class has ended. In addition, we encourage students to use our restroom facility to wash their hands with antibacterial soap before and after class. Wipes and sanitizers will be available for student use throughout the studio. Masks are not required, but we encourage each student do whatever they feel is necessary to be safe.
As always, we ask that you do not attend class if you're feeling under the weather!
Studio Cleaning Protocol...
Our instructors at Yoga On Mars have been given a strict cleaning protocol to follow. All teachers have signed off on these guidelines and understand them fully. These guidelines include step by step directions to disinfect all frequently touched hard surfaces (doorknobs, tabletops, chairs, floors, etc.), disinfect our floors and bathroom surfaces, and restock all soaps/sanitizers/clean towels, leaving a clean environment for the next class to arrive into. Cleaning guidelines will be carried out at the end of every class/workshop/private that takes place. A copy of the cleaning protocol has been provided to each one of our team members and posted clearly at the studio to streamline the maintenance process and ensure it's effectiveness.
Cleaning of the space - practicing Saucha - has always been important to us, but given these unprecedented times, we have devised a structured hand-out with clear and concise directions for our team so that nothing is missed. Please know that we will do our part to ensure a safe and clean environment for our students, and we urge them to do theirs as well! Remember to wash your hands frequently, sneeze/cough into your arm, and if you're not feeling well, stay home. Be sure to bring your mat and sign up for class ahead of time.
We will continue to take care of our space and our students as we always have. We want to be transparent when it comes to the standards of maintaining a clean, healthy environment. Our space is your space; you are safe.
Love & Light,
Your Friends & Instructors at YOM
