  • Some classes are available for in-person, we will continue to offer virtual schedule

 

Check often for updates, register in advance, bring your own mat + props, details below.  

 

On June 15th, we began the transition phase of re-opening the studio for you to attend classes in person.  

 

Cleaning

  • At Yoga Mala, we have always held a high standard of cleanliness, cleaning our spaces frequently and thoroughly. We will continue to clean all high touch areas and surfaces as well as floors as often as possible.  
  • We will also provide you with hand disinfectant to use before entering and exiting the studio

 

Booking Classes

  • All classes MUST be reserved online at least 15 minutes before class start time
  • No drop-ins until further notice (again to minimize risks at front desk and to let us plan the schedule accordingly)
  • We will also continue to offer our classes online for livestream
  • The schedule will be adjusted often as we work out what best serves everyone, so please check the schedule and register in advance
  • Please read our policy for late cancellation of instudio classes

 

In Studio Classes

Practice Space

  • Please arrive 5 minutes before start time of class you are registered in to ensure one way traffic on the stairs and allow for physical distancing upon entry.
  • Single lane departure will be used for exit 5 minutes after class. 
  • Classes during this time of transition will be on our 3rd floor studio ONLY, keeping a safe distance between mats at 2 meters by pre-marking where mats should go
  • Windows will be open in the practice space to ensure that the room is ventilated and the air remains fresh
  • We will not offer hands-on assist/adjustments at this time
  • Access to the studio areas you may have been used to using will be reduced so that we can more easily keep the studio clean and sanitary. In light of this, we will not be providing the use of showers or change rooms and ask all students to show up changed and ready for class.   

 

  • Please use our washrooms only if absolutely necessary. We will have one washroom open to be used by all students, again only on an absolute need-to basis. 

 

Prop Use

  • For this first phase of reopening and until further notice, we will ask all students to bring their own mats and props and to keep all their belongings with them by their mat
  • Please bring only what you need to the studio, to reduce the amount that you need to keep near you as much as possible

 

Mats Stored at Yoga Mala

  • All mats that were previously stored at Yoga Mala must be picked up before August 1st 2020 during scheduled appointment hours
  • Mat storage will be suspended until further notice
  • Any requests for mat pick up can be emailed to [email protected] we will give you a day & time to pick up
  • Please have a clear description of your mat and approximate location so one of us can find it and place it in the hallway for you
  • All unclaimed mats will be donated to local charities, schools and shelters

 

We request that all staff and students self monitor for symptoms or illness, and in respect for the broader community, stay home if they present any symptoms

 

Please join us for class as soon as you can as we cannot wait to see you here or online!

 

 

Thank you so very much for your love and support! 

 

with love,  

Emma, Jamie, and the Yoga Mala family
