Re-Opening Procedures and Policies
Register online before class. Space is limited to 9 participants per class. It is important that you reserve your spot before coming to the studio. We will not be accepting walk-ins.
Mat Spacing: We have measured out the room and marked the floors to maintain 8-feet between practitioners. Please line up the middle of the top of your mat with one of the dots on the floor.
Cancellation policy: Because of the limited schedule and the limited capacity in each class, showing up when you make a reservation is important. Please plan accordingly. If you don’t think you will be able to make it to class, you must cancel your reservation 3 hours (or more) before the class time. No shows and late cancellations will be charged for a drop-in class ($25).
No cash: we will not be accepting cash in the studio. Please make sure you have a credit card on file and sign up for class on the mindbody app or website before class.
No mat, towel, or prop rentals. We will not, under any circumstances, be renting out yoga mats or yoga towels. Yoga mats and towels are required for each class. Please don’t feel like you need to go out and buy an expensive yoga towel, a bath or beach towel is fine, but you need to have something to go over your mat to absorb sweat.
We will not be selling water for now. We have disposable cups available that you can fill up at the water fountain or sink.
Changing rooms and showers are closed for the time being. We understand this is a big change but we are following the guidance of other Bikram studios around the country that have already opened. We are doing our best to limit surface contact and practice social distancing. This might mean that coming to class requires more preparation than it did in the past. We encourage you to come dressed for class. Bring a towel to cover your car seat for your ride home or bring a change of clothes and change in the bathroom.
15 minute transitions. While we will miss socializing before and after class, for now we need to limit time in the studio to 15 minutes before and after each class. We can’t wait for the day that we can hang out in the lobby and chat for a while, but we’re not there yet.
Personal Protective Equipment. Please respect our neighbors at the 16 North Plaza and wear a mask when you are entering and exiting the building. We will not be requiring masks inside the Yoga Cure space. Masks are not allowed to be worn during any class for safety reasons. Gloves are not permitted in the studio at any time.
Limit personal belongings. Please do your best to limit what you bring into the studio. Again, this may require more planning. Come dressed for class, leave your shoes at the door, and try to only bring what you need for class into the space.
Use Common Sense. Last but not least, please use your common sense. If you don’t feel well, don’t come to class. If you have traveled recently, please wait a week or two before attending class. If someone you are close with is ill, stay home. And of course, if you are not comfortable practicing in the studio yet, practice at home!
This will be a learning process for us all. We know that some of these new guidelines will take some getting used to and we might need to make changes as we go along. We ask for your patience and understanding. We are happy to answer any questions and address any concerns that you have.
WE CAN’T WAIT to see you in the hot room!
