Zeal Yoga’s mission has always been to provide a safe and welcoming space for you to explore your yoga practice. And this is true now, more than ever. Because of current circumstances, we have modified our current studio procedures. Please take a careful look at our new policies and be ready to follow them as you return to the studio. Students that do not follow the new policies will not be permitted to take class and late cancellation penalties will apply.
STAY HOME If you exhibit flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath or breathing difficulties or a rise in temperature, please stay home! Keep our community safe.
SURFACES Our efforts to keep our studio germ free include cleaning and sanitizing door handles, the cubbies the front desk, the refrigerator, all bathroom fixtures, studio floor, and often-touched surfaces before and after each class. We encourage you to wash your hands before and after class.
REGISTRATION Students are REQUIRED to sign up for class via Mindbody prior to arriving at the studio. No “walk ins” will be permitted. No new monthly memberships at this time (if you currently have one, you can continue to use it). Drop-ins or 10 or 20 class passes can be purchased online and will be good for 6 months from the date of purchase.
STUDIO DOORS Studio doors will open 10 minutes prior to each class. The teacher will prop open the door when the studio is ready for class.
SIZE OF CLASSES Classes will be limited to 8 students. If you register for class and then cannot make it, please go back in, and cancel it.
VIRTUAL/ONLINE CLASSES We are pleased to announce that we will continue to offer some of our classes online. Please note that Yin classes will be available ONLINE ONLY for the time being.
WAIVER All students entering the studio are required to sign our updated waiver.
NO SHOW RESERVATIONS As our class sizes are dramatically impacted by social distancing and sanitation procedures, we will enforce temporary cancellation/no-show policies that are more stringent than our previously held policies. If you fail to cancel your reservation within 2 hours of the beginning of class, you will forfeit your payment for that class as follows:
Cancellations MUST BE MADE via Mindbody (sorry, calls and emails will not be accepted). Classes with no reservations or under 3 participants may be cancelled, so please abide by our registration policy. If a class is cancelled that you have registered for, you will be notified immediately.
MASKS We kindly ask that you wear masks in the studio unless you are on your yoga mat. You are welcome to wear your mask while practicing but it is not required.
PERSONAL ITEMS We strongly encourage you to bring in as little as possible to the studio. All personal items brought into the studio must be placed in the cubbies.
LATE ARRIVALS OR EARLY LEAVING Late arrivals and early leaving of class will not be permitted. The studio door will be locked once class begins and will be unlocked at the end of class by the instructor.
PLACEMENT OF MATS Tape is laid out in to indicate where to place your mat. Students and teachers should maintain a 6-foot distance from one another throughout class. Please refrain from handshaking, hugging, or otherwise touching instructors or other students at the studio.
PROPS At this time there will be no props (blocks, straps, blankets, and bolsters) available in studio for use during class. This includes rental yoga mats. You are required to bring your own mat. If you have your own props, you are welcome to bring them to class. Props will not be a central part of class so please don’t feel like you need to purchase to attend class.
