WAIVER FAQS

How do I sign the new Waiver?

At the beginning of August our studio will have new waivers for our entire community regardless of how long you’ve been practicing with us.  There are 3 different ways you can update your waiver here at the studio.  Below are instructions you can follow.

Web Browser

When you log into mind body from a web browser, you will automatically be prompted to review and sign the new waiver.  The instructions are:

  1. Go to MindBody to login
  2. Enter your login credentials
  3. A popup notification will prompt you to view and sign the new waiver.

Mobile App auto prompt

When you open the mobile app students should be automatically prompted to sign the new waiver.  The instructions are:

    1. Open LAB Community Mobile App
    2. Log-in if you aren’t already
    3. Click the three white bars on the top left hand corner inside the app
    4. Click on your name
    5. Click the little pencil icon on the top left hand corner of the app near your picture.
    6. Scroll to the bottom where it says “Studio Liability Release”
    7. Read the terms
    8. Click the green radio button ‘on’ where it says  “I agree with the above terms”
    9. Save

In-Studio Option:

If you find the Mobile App confusing, or you just prefer to have a little extra hands on support, plan to arrive a few minutes early for your next class and our teachers can assist you.

Print and Bring in your Waiver:

You can view and print the form by clicking here, and then bring it in to the studio the next time you come in.  There will be extra waivers at the front desk should you forget.

What happens if I am not automatically prompted to sign the waiver when I log into the Mobile App?

  1. Open LAB Community Mobile App
  2. Log-in if you aren’t already
  3. Click the three white bars on the top left hand corner inside the app
  4. Click on your name
  5. Click the little pencil icon on the top left hand corner of the app near your picture.
  6. Scroll to the bottom where it says “Studio Liability Release”

What happens if I am not automatically prompted to sign the waiver when I log into the Web Browser?

Unfortunately there is no manual way for updating your waiver through the Web Browser.  If you are not prompted to sign the waiver, you will need to redirect your efforts to the other 3 available options.

REOPENING

When are you opening the studio?
Beginning June 1st we’ll be offering in-studio classes for up to 14 students at a time. 

What is the capacity in class? 

We have 14 spots available for students in each class. Smaller class sizes means students will have the opportunity to connect even deeper with our community. Connection has been a core value in our community for over 10 years. Our new model of service delivery can help us deepen our connection as a community. 

What temperature is the room heated to? Why?

By minimizing excess sweat, students can transition from practice to the rest of their day with a bit more ease. Our ventilation system continues to ensure that fresh air is circulated throughout the practice room. The heat in our practice room has been reduced by 2 ℃ for each class style. 

Can I use the change rooms?

We have limited the use of our change rooms. If you need to use the bathroom facilities or changing rooms during your visit, please follow the decals marked along the floor to ensure adequate social spacing. 

Can I shower?

We are not able to sanitize showers in-between each use. We disinfect 2 showers (clearly indicated) before and after each class for any students who require the use of a shower. For the full list of ways we’re keeping our studio clean, visit our updated Health & Safety protocols

How do I sign up for class?
You can pre-register for the class up to 2 hours before the class start-time, either from your computer at home or by using our LABCommunity mobile app. 

Can I practice In-Studio and still get access to LAB+home?
Yes! All of our prepaid and monthly members have access to both. 

I would like to activate my membership.
Yay! We are excited to welcome you back! Please email us at hello@yogalabvictoria.ca with the date you’d like to activate your membership on. Keep in mind that it may take up to 3 days for us to reactivate your membership. If you activate your membership anytime before June 30,  your first payment will be reduced to $59.  

I prefer to practice in my own space.
LAB+home is a library of virtual classes with instructors from both Victoria and Westshore LAB locations. While we build this library, you’ll have access to all of our live-replay classes for the entire month of June. Practice our popular sequences with your favourite teachers in the comfort of your own space.

How can I join the volunteer ‘Ambassador’ team? 

You can learn more about our Ambassador team here, and fill out an application. We would love to have you. 

What do I need to bring to class?

Please arrive dressed in the attire you wish to wear for class. Use of change rooms is possible if necessary. 

Will you have props/water bottles/mats/other items for sale?
Yes, you can purchase practice accessories and prop kits in-studio using debit/credit cards.

SAFETY MEASURES

What are your cleaning protocols? 

Classes are scheduled to allow for ample time in between to rigorously clean and sanitize the practice room, change rooms, washrooms and other high touch areas (such as door handles, countertops, credit/debit machines) in the studio.

Several hand sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the facility, and all persons must sanitize their hands upon entering and exiting the studio.

We continue to use Oxivir Plus Disinfectant Cleaner Concentrate as our primary cleaning solution. It is a tuberculocidal, virucidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, broad-spectrum sanitizer. This product is hydrogen-peroxide based, EcoLogo certified and developed for use in medical and healthcare establishments. We follow the manufacturer’s recommended dilution ratios for both disinfection and broad-spectrum sanitization.

For more information, see our full list of Health & Safety protocols.

How does physical distancing look in the studio?

We’ve placed handy-dandy floor decals throughout the studio, making it easy to move through the space while upholding physical distancing. Read about our studio etiquette, which includes physical distancing practices.

Decals on the stairs will help guide the flow of traffic. While only one person is to be on the staircase at a time, please provide the right-of-way to the person who is on the landing.

Will the teacher be walking around?

Nope. Teachers will be leading classes from their mat. If the heat or humidity in the room needs to be adjusted, teachers will wear a mask while doing so.
