SELF ASSESS BEFORE YOU COME (Click here to take your Ontario Self-Assessment before coming to in-studio classes)

Dear Members,
Please know that your presence in our community is cared for and important. We stand by you and respect your personal choice to choose what feels best for your body. Since we have reopened post lockdown, we have felt your gratitude, love and compassion.

The Government of Ontario recently mandated a Covid-19 vaccination policy in select settings effective September 22nd, 2021. We are complying with the mandatory vaccination policy of the Provincial Government, which applies to many businesses such as restaurants, bars, sport venues and yoga studios. These health and safety guidelines outlined by the government will require proof of vaccination (two doses plus 14 days from the date of the 2nd dose) and photo ID to attend in-person classes.

HOW DO I GET MY PROOF OF VACCINATION?
Click here to download a copy of your digital vaccine receipt and bring it with you to the studio. We ask that you either show us a digital copy or hard copy of your vaccination receipt along with your photo ID when checking in at the front desk. Upon us receiving your proof of vaccination, we will update your profile in our system indicating that you have met this government requirement, meaning you will only need to present this document once.

IF I HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO VACCINATE OR DON’T WANT TO RELEASE THIS INFORMATION?
Please know that we respect your choice and will always look for ways to continue supporting you. We have created a new online unlimited membership that offers classes + recordings valid for 7 days with teachers from our studio, as well as full access to our yoga on demand platform with Modo Online that offers over 100 classes anytime. We welcome you to join our virtual studio here. Virtual drop-in’s and class cards are also available with our studio’s online classes.

WHERE DO I GO IF I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
Please reach out to us at [email protected]

We appreciate the help and support of our community as we continue to navigate these uncertain times. Please know that no matter what your vaccination status is, we LOVE you. Please be kind to one another. Our world needs more love. We are grateful for you. Namaste.

 

IN-STUDIO CLASSES 

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE TO CLASS

You must pre-register for class (no walk-ins) by using our Modo Yoga APP or website. Please bring your vaccination receipt and photo ID when checking in. Bookings are available 30 days prior on our APP or website. We recommend booking right away in order to get your spot. We are currently limited to a 25 person capacity for classes as per Simcoe County’s current restrictions. We are doing our best to accommodate you. Need to cancel your reservation? Please complete your cancellation a minimum of 4 hours prior to the start of class otherwise the class will be taken off your class card. We recommend you change into your yoga active wear attire at home/before arriving to the studio. Change rooms and showers are open, however please store your belongings out front in the cubbies and take a designated space in the change room when available at the social distance marked spots. Arrive with a mask. If you do not have one, we will provide masks for a charge. You will also want to fill up your water bottle at home and we recommend you bring an extra filled bottle to hydrate after class.

WHAT WE ARE DOING TO KEEP YOU SAFE 

Everyone will be wearing masks in the common areas at all times. Social distancing stickers have been placed on the floor throughout the entire studio to ensure that social distancing is being practiced at all times. We have a plexiglass barrier at the front desk. Daily covid screening conducted for all team members at the start of their shift.  Touchless hand sanitizing stations placed throughout the studio. Hospital grade cleaning supplies are being used consistently. Blocks, straps, mat and towel rentals will not be available at the studio. We will not be accepting cash during a transaction. Only debit or credit. Feel free to update your credit card on your profile to make purchasing simple. We use a LifeBreath, commercial grade, heat recovery ventilation (HRV) system that constantly purifies the air in the hot yoga room. This creates a maximum clean air flow design.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE

Cubby space at the front entrance is limited. Please only arrive with the necessities for your practice (mat, towel, water from home, props). Please respect social distancing and line up outside of the studio. Please wait your turn to enter the studio.  The change rooms and showers will be open at a reduced capacity with social distance markers.

IN THE HOT ROOM DURING CLASS

You will enter the studio and hot room space wearing your mask. Once you’ve arrived on your mat, you may remove your mask for your yoga practice. When entering the hot room, one of our volunteers will be assisting you on where to go. We will begin by filling the perimeters of the hot room first, and then followed by each row (starting at the mirror and making our way towards the entrance door). You must use the pre-determined mat markers. These spaces have been thoroughly measured for social distance spacing. The teacher will remain on their mat the entire class and guide you from there. Breathing during your practice will be in and out through the nose. We have taken out pranayama and kapalabhati breathing. No hands-on adjustments will be given during this time.

AFTER CLASS

The teacher will include Savasana at the end of your practice. Be mindful of social distancing when you are ready to leave the hot room. Please do not linger in the common areas. Remember your personal belongings. Please bring your recyclables (water bottles) home with you. The studio doors will be locked 15 minutes after class so we have time to do a thorough cleaning.

IMPORTANT CHANGES

During this time we will be limiting our front desk contact, please email for questions and assistance. Please ask for assistance on retail items.  We miss you all, and our goal is to provide a safe place for you during this time. We are committed to offering the absolute best hot yoga experience possible with the guidelines and measures that we must meet.
