OUR COMMUNITY’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19
May 15, 2020
A MINDFUL RESTART
Because our top priority is the health and safety of our entire community and team, we are putting the right pieces in motion to reopen
within the first week of June and plan to continue offering virtual livestream and on demand features.
Our first step was to work with public health officials, including WorkSafe BC, to understand the requirements. We are currently identifying additional precautionary measures we feel are relevant to the in-studio experience.
IN STUDIO FRAMEWORK
A new studio etiquette framework for physical distancing and flow throughout the space is in development. More details will be coming and here is snapshot of what you can expect to see upon your return to the studio:
Hybrid offering of both in-person classes alongside an integrated virtual experience
New waiver for all students
Reduced capacity to ensure minimum of 2 meter physical distance
Online registration, waitlist, safe sign in, online checkout
Physical distancing measures throughout the foyer
Hand sanitizing station upon entry of the facility, in the practice room, and bathroom
Extended time between classes to perform cleaning/sanitization
Arrive at the studio ready to practice: in your yoga gear and with a full water bottle
Use of bathrooms & water fountain will be limited
Removal of shared props (prop kits available for purchase)
Office hours for account support and retail purchases
As our plan develops will be staying in contact through our newsletters, facebook and social media accounts. We look forward practicing with you.

With the announcement this morning from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking all Canadians to stay at home, we have decided to temporarily move our classes online. Effective March 17th our studio will be closed to the public.
We are committed to supporting you and your wellness goals.
We are moving a selection of our classes to an online format so we are able to continue serving our community from a distance. Tomorrow you will receive an email outlining the details of how to access our online offerings which will go live March 18th. Live classes will feature our dedicated faculty members demonstrating and cueing a 60 minute practice which will vary according to the schedule. You’ll find the classes you know and love, taught by the same incredible teachers, the only difference is that it’s from a distance.
Tomorrow you will receive a follow up email that will answer many questions. We are experiencing higher than normal volume of inquiries right now and are committed to responding as quickly as possible. Your compassion for our efforts is deeply appreciated.
Our community extends far beyond our studio space.
Join us online to stay connected as a community. We need our practice and each other now more than ever. Let’s move through this together!
We offer deep bows and compassion to everyone impacted by this health crisis. We are calling on our community to rally together so that when we are on the other side of this we are still connected at the roots.
With so much care and respect,
and the Yoga Lab Community
