REOPEN CHANGES

Unfortunately our studio re-opening has been delayed to the latest provincial lockdown.

We are offering virtual yoga in the meantime so you can bring your Modo home.

SELF ASSESS BEFORE YOU COME

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE AT THE STUDIO
You must pre-register for class (no walk-ins) by using our Modo Yoga APP or website. Bookings are available 3 days prior starting at 12am on our APP or website. We recommend booking right away in order to get your spot. We are currently limited to a 10 person capacity 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 6 hours prior to the start of class otherwise the class will be taken off your class card.

Members: *Please note we are moving to a class card or drop in rate when re-opening at this 10 person capacity. If you are a current member, no future payments will come out and you will need to switch to a class card during this time. We will create a NEW membership option once our capacity increases. During these closures and continued lockdowns, we need to do what’s most sustainable while being severely reduced in class capacity. We’ve gone from 50 people per class to 10 people and need to reframe our structure. We thank you for your understanding.

Class Card Holders: If you are using a class card, the class will be deducted from your class card if you do not cancel 6 hours prior to the start time of class or do not show up for a reserved class.

The studio doors will be open 15 minutes before class and close 15 minutes after class. Doors will be locked promptly at the start of class. This ensures the 90 minute maximum time in a space that is mandated by our health unit.

Fill up your water bottle at home.
Change into your yoga active wear attire at home/before arriving to the studio. Change rooms are closed.
Arrive with a mask. If you do not have one, we will provide masks for a charge.

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 temperature checks conducted for all staff members at the start of their shift. Plus temperature checks on students when arriving to practice.
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 showers and change rooms will not be available during this time, as well as the water station outside the hot room doors.

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.

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.

IMPORTANT CHANGES
During this time we will be limiting our front desk contact, please email or call for questions and assistance.
Consider bathrooms at the studio for emergency use only.
Ask for assistance on retail items.
Please do not touch what you are not going to buy.
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.

Thank you members
