Studio Policies – COVID-19

As we enter this new chapter together, we are doing our best to ensure the safety of our community. We also want to thank you in advance for your patience as we navigate this totally unprecedented situation. We promise to do our best for you. Things may change as we figure out what works best for our studio and community, so your patience and understanding is humbly requested and very much appreciated. Please continue reading for a full list of changes coming to the studio effective June 15th, 2020. Before returning to the studio, please fill out this COVID Liability Waiver.

 

For the health and safety of your fellow yogis and our staff, please DO NOT COME TO CLASS IF:
You are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms
You live or have been in contact with anyone who is sick and/or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms
You live or have been in contact with anyone who has travelled in the last 14 days
If you come to the studio with a cough, fever, or any other COVID-19 symptoms you will not be admitted.

 

Student Protocol
  • Online pre-registration is required for all classes. Download the Modo Yoga app or view the schedule page on our website to sign-up and reserve your spot. You can visit our blog for a step-by-step guide to online pre-registration
  • Cancellation Policy: Members will be charged a $15 fee for late cancellations (cancellations made less than 2 hours before the class begins) and no shows. Class card users will not be refunded for their missed class. If you’re unable to attend a class you’ve signed up for, be sure to cancel your reservation online more than 2 hours before the class begins to avoid penalty. If it’s less than two hours before class, email the manager or call the studio to let us know you’re not going to make it!
  • BYO-Everything (including water!). We will not be providing mat rentals, towel rentals, or props for practice. Members who use our mats as part of their membership will have the option of keeping on of our studio mats in their own cubby in the Freedom Room.
  • Clean your own gear. Staff will no longer be handling student mats for cleaning after class.
  • Please arrive in your yoga clothes! Change room use is discouraged.
  • No showers.

 

Changes around the Studio
  • Reduced class size to 50% capacity meaning fewer bodies in the studio and more space between mats in the hot room
  • Floor markings to safely maintain physical distancing in the common areas and hot room
  • Hot classes, but with increased fresh air flow
  • Weekly virtual and outdoor class options. Virtual class offerings at 12:00pm every Tuesday/Thursday and an outdoor class every Sunday. Outdoor classes will be held at Hastings Mill Park (Alma St. @ Point Grey Rd).
  • More time between classes to allow for thorough cleaning.
  • Ample sanitation products around the studio and increased sanitation measures for both staff and students. All studio surfaces will be cleaned with Benefect Disinfectant and Multi-Purpose Cleaner, a hospital grade disinfectant that has been a feature of our studio for many years.

 

No Longer Accepting…
  • ClassPass. We are temporarily suspending ClassPass options. Please purchase class cards or drop-ins from our online store if you would like to attend class.
  • Cash. We will no longer be accepting cash payments.
  • Membership Suspensions. Once memberships are reactivated on June 15th, we will no longer be accommodating membership suspensions for non-medical reasons.
  • Traveller’s Pass. Due to the nature of COVID-19, we will be suspending access to traveller’s passes for members.
  • New Memberships. We will honour all current memberships at the studio, however new memberships will not be available to purchase for the time being. Students can purchase drop-ins or 10 Class Cards online to register for class.
    Current Members: If you choose to cancel your membership when the studio reopens, you will not be able to return to the same membership model/price in the future.*

 

We are committed to keeping our community safe and comfortable while we all enter this new chapter together. Thank you for being such an amazing group of students and community members. We feel honoured to be journeying through this with each of you, and we are so excited to welcome you back to the hot room!
