We Are Open!

 

89 days later.....we are emerging from our homes. We are over the moon excited to welcome our students back into our studio for in person classes starting this Friday June 12th! We have missed our students so much! We miss hearing about your lives, we miss exchanging smiles, and we miss your laughter. Our slogan when we closed and switched to online classes was "We Alter, We Adapt and We Persevere!" 

 

We are continuing to Alter and with our re-opening you are going to see most of our classes will be offered as hybrid classes. What does hybrid mean? It means you get to take your same favourite classes either from the comfort of your home or at our studio, you choose what suits you best. It's always been one of our core principals at YogaMCC to meet our students where they are at and we are committed to continue doing that..... so we Alter. You will see these classes identified by [In Studio] or [Virtual] on our website and MindBody.

 

We are also continuing to Adapt. The truth is nothing in life is 100% safe but it's always been our commitment to make our space the safest we can. Some of the Adaptations we have made to our space include: 

- A brand new top of the line HVAC Hepa and UV light filtration system that is setup to maximize the air quality of our space. We want to thank our friends at Just in Time for helping us out with this; it really is a huge deal!

- Social distancing spaces means limited class sizes.

- Increased cleaning protocols with more time in between classes.

 

We Persevere. It has been 89 days and our business has not received one single penny from the government and our landlord has still not confirmed we will receive any rent relief. The only reason we are still able to provide classes is because both our students and our teachers have stepped up in a very big way to get us this far. It's a long road still ahead but as long as the support keeps coming we're not giving up. We will Persevere. 

Please read the important information below before coming back to the studio.

NEW SAFETY PROTOCOLS

General:

  • Classes are now spaced 1/2 hour apart so there is time to clean the studio in-between each class & so students do not come & go at the same time. Please make sure to familiarize yourself with the new schedule and thank you for understanding that we made these changes for safety reasons.

  • Students can come to class no more that 10 minutes early to give staff time to clean the studio between classes. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes early as the staff will be cleaning.

  • There are physical distancing markers on the floor so that students stay 2 m apart while they are waiting in line to check-in. We are only allowing one person at the time on the stairs. The line may extend out the door. To make checking in efficient and to reduce wait times please consider making purchases and asking involved questions until after class, if possible.

  • Students cannot wait in the reception area for class to start and must go to their spot in the studio.

  • People shopping in the boutique must be 2 m apart at all times. Please do not touch items you do not intend to buy. Touched items will need to be put into quarantine.

  • NO change rooms available at this time. Please arrive dressed for class.

  • NO mat storage available at this time.

  • NO coat closet available at this time.

 

Arrival:

  1. First thing on entering YogaMcc, use hand sanitizer.

  2. Confirm that you have done the Screening Checklist online. If not, read the one posted at the front desk and confirm that you answer “no” to each question.

  3. Confirm that you have signed off on the new waiver that should have popped up when you registered for class. If you have not seen the new waiver yet, read the one posted at the front desk and confirm that you agree to the terms.

  4. Staff will be taking your temperature. A temperature over 100.4°F (38°C) most often means you have a fever caused by an infection or illness.

  5. Please bring your yoga mat and all your own props. Limited props that can be properly disinfected will be available for use in the studio (wood blocks and therapy massage balls) for a $2 cleaning fee. Please check the class description for guidance on what props to bring.

  6. When using the POS, please use the tap function.

  7. Once you have signed in go straight to one of the taped off spots in the studio. Put the top of your mat along the taped line.

  8. After class exit through the back door.

 

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

  • We encourage students to wear a mask to the studio and remove the mask once you arrive at your spot within the studio.

  • You are not obliged to wear a mask at the front desk as there is a plastic barrier in place and physical distancing will otherwise be implemented.

  • We will have some reusable cloth masks available for sale at the front desk.

  • Masks are not to be worn during class.

Thank you for taking the time to read this important information. Thank you for helping us keep our community safe and healthy.
