Any person with symptoms of COVID-19, or who has been in close contact with a person who is confirmed positive for COVID-19, may not enter the studio space or participate in studio classes.  Please attend our Online Classes to stay safe until you have fully healed and self-quarantined for 10-14 days.

Please ensure your contact information on file with the studio is up to date in your Wellness Living account.  The studio will keep a log of every participant in each in-studio yoga session in the event that contact tracing is required at a later time.

 

Physical Distance:  No physical distancing required. (as of 6/30/21). We recommend each person maintain a distance that feels safe for them, given their individual situation and level of comfort.

 

Hygiene: For your convenience, soap and water are in the bathroom; hand sanitizer that contains the required 60-90% alcohol content is located at the front entrance, front desk and in the back of the studio.  

Cleaning: Shared equipment is disinfected after each use. High-use areas and restrooms  are cleaned and disinfected regularly. CDC guidelines for cleaning & disinfection are followed at all times.

Ventilation: Yoga Samadhi has excellent air quality with all safety measures in place.  All of our ventilation systems operate properly; ceiling fans are always on, and a medical-grade air filter is always running. When possible, air circulation & ventilation is increased by opening windows and doors.

 

Props: Please bring blocks, blanket and your yoga mat from home, if at all possible.  If you do not have a bolster, you may borrow one of our bolsters provided you cover it with a towel or blanket from home.
