Studio Policies

Vaccine Policy

Based on the recent Government Mandate, as of September 22, Modo Yoga Uptown, LP and SCW will comply with the Ontario Government’s requirement that individuals who are attending in person classes be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status. Effective September 22 2021, all staff, teachers and guests taking in studio classes who are eligible for vaccination must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate. This policy will remain in place until further notice or update. Please email us your vaccination status to [email protected] and it will be permanently recorded on your file to allow for a seamless check-in experience for everyone. If you are uncomfortable emailing us your private medical information, you may also show your proof of vaccine at check-in.

Modo Yoga Uptown, LP and SCW will comply with its human rights obligations and accommodate guests who are legally entitled to accommodation under the Ontario Human Rights Code. Those who require an accommodation must provide supporting documentation.

We also ask everyone to please respect the privacy of others and to refrain from any conversations around personal medical status while at the studio.

Health Assessment

  • Please make sure to self-assess before coming to the studio.
  • Please stay home if you have any signs of infection: a cough, fever, sore throat, difficulty breathing, runny, stuffy or congested nose or any other symptoms.
  • If you arrive at the studio with any of these symptoms, you will not be permitted to take class.

Masks

  • Please wear a mask before and after class (unless medically exempt).
  • Masks are not required during class.

Pre-registration required for all classes

  • Sign up online using our website or mobile app (no walk-ins at this time) as we are operating at a reduced capacity to ensure social distancing. (*Please contact us if you can’t pre-register online).
  • Online registration closes 15 minutes before class begins.
  • You can sign up for classes up to a week in advance.
  • Double check that you book the class you want: IN STUDIO or VIRTUAL and at the right location: Uptown or St Clair West.

Studio opens 15 minutes before class

  • To limit the total amount of time spent in the studio, please arrive 10-15 minutes before class starts (*As always, latecomers will not be admitted).
  • Once you check-in, please go straight to the practice room. Thanks for not congregating in the common areas.
  • Our showers are closed until further notice and space is limited in our change-rooms, so please plan ahead and arrive dressed and ready for class.
  • Thank you in advance for leaving the studio promptly so our staff can do a thorough deep clean before the next class.

Props

  • Please bring your own mat, towel, and a full water bottle.
  • Mat Rentals ($3) are available at this time but Towel Rentals are discontinued until further notice.
  • We will not offer studio props such as blocks and straps at this time. You are welcome to bring your own props from home, or to purchase props from us. (*Some props will be provided for Pilates and Restorative classes)
  • Mat markers are set up in the practice room so you will know where to place your mat.

Updated cancellation & waitlist policies

  • As our capacity for classes has been significantly reduced, we now have a Courtesy Policy that is a $10 no-show fee if you do not attend a class you signed up for.
  • You won’t be charged as long as you cancel a minimum of 3 hours before class.
  • Class full? You’ll be able to add yourself to the waitlist. You’ll get an email from us letting you know if a spot becomes available.

THANK YOU

We understand that not everyone will feel comfortable coming back to the studios just yet! Not to worry – our Virtual Studio and Park Yoga are here to stay for the time being.

Please know that we take our responsibility to the community very seriously by following all public health required safety protocols to keep our community safe, and we appreciate your support in helping to collectively create a peaceful, safe and comfortable environment at our studios.
