COVID-19

  1. We administer wellness checks for staff, volunteers and students. Anyone experiencing symptoms or feeling sick at all, should stay home.
  2. We have a separate entrance and exit to manage the flow of foot traffic. When the Mall entrance is open, please enter through those doors and exit through our external doors.
  3. We are limiting class sizes to 50% occupancy, with a wait list. These classes will be capped between 10-15 spots depending on regular occupancy. A waitlist will be started if the class is full. You will be notified when it is safe to resume normal class counts and a space has opened for you/ your child(ren).
  4. Each student should bring a labeled water bottle. We have closed drinking fountains but have maintained a contactless place for water bottles to be filled. Drinks will also be available for purchase. Distanced outdoor furniture on our open-air patio has been provided for waiting, eating and breaks.
  5. Short breaks between classes have been built in for sanitizing and longer breaks throughout the evening for more deep cleaning of high touch points and restrooms.
  6. Our studios are equipped with state-of-the-art ventilation systems. We can and will purge the air between classes. All studios have a separate HVAC system, limiting shared air. We also have CO2 monitors. At any point that the air quality becomes low, fresh air is automatically added to the room to bring the air quality back up to optimal.
  7. If our instructors, your family or you have traveled outside of the state, we ask that you refrain from coming into the studio for a 72-hour period to see if symptoms occur.
  8. If the government should change our ability to provide in person classes, we will provide web-based zoom classes during the same day and time as much is in our control.

To take extra precaution, you may:

  • Bring only what you need for class/es into the studio.
  • Sanitize or wash hands on the entrance to the studio, between classes and before you leave the studio.
  • Intentionally distance yourself from those outside of your household.
  • Always wear a mask except to eat, drink or to catch your breath after exertion.
  • Refrain from sharing food, drinks, clothing and shoes.
  • Parents should drop students off and pick them up at the end of class/es as much as possible. Our lobby and waiting areas are subject to our 50% capacity restrictions.

Communication is Key! We will update social media, studio voicemail and our website in the event policies change. We thank you for your grace as we all navigate these unprecedented times together.
