New Studio Policies

PHYSICAL DISTANCING + DISINFECTING STATIONS

There will be a sanitizing station to the left and right of the studio entrance.

 

Each mat will be placed 6-feet apart. There will be blue tape marked on the studio floor guiding students as to where to place their mats.

Teachers will not be doing any hands-on assist or corrections.

Students are required to disinfect the section they occupied during class. Disinfectant will be provided.

MASKS

 

Masks are required when entering and walking around the studio. Following the order of indoor gyms, once students are on their mat/machine, they have the option to remove their mask for the duration of the class. 

 

Masks are required once the student leaves their mat.

 

The instructor will be wearing a face covering and stationed at a safe distance from all students.
