Metchosin Yoga Protocol for Restart
Stay home if you have any symptoms such as fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat and painful swallowing, pink eyes, and allergies symptoms.
Wearing a mask is mandatory indoors and outdoors at the studio.
Students will register in advance for classes via email and pay for classes via etransfer.
Bring their own mat, strap and blankets and other props required for class.
Arrive wearing yoga attire: there is no changing room at present.
Wear a mask when within less than 6 feet of someone and to enter the studio.
Arrive for class 10 minutes before class time. The teacher will open the door and students will enter one at a time.
Class size is limited to allow a distance of 2 meters between students.
Practice social distancing as you enter the studio and in the parking
Put shoes away on the outside shelf and take your props into the studio. Place your mat on the marks on the floor. Do not bring any water bottles in the studio.
Teachers and students will limit moving around the studio during class. Teachers will teach with demos and verbal corrections. There won’t be manual adjustments or partner work at this time.
At the end of class the teacher will call each student by name so that students leave the studio one at a time.
In the studio, as much as possible, practice silence to avoid aerosol effect and emitting droplets.
We will not chant the OM and the invocation to Patanjali out loud: a recording will be played.
Bring your own hand sanitizer to class. Use as often as you wish.
Your responsibility in helping Us Stay Safe:
Wash your hands for 2 minutes with soap and water (or use hand sanitizer) before coming to class and upon returning after class.
Consult your doctor about coming to class if you have underlying health issues.
If you have registered for class and develop symptoms, stay home until you have no symptoms at all.
No make-ups or drop-ins class can be done at this time unless arranged/approved for in advance: this is to ensure we do not exceed the maximum number of students.
Advise me if you develop Covid-19. Do not feel afraid to let me know. We are all vulnerable and we must care for each other. Also inform us if anyone in your direct circle develops Covid-19.
If absolutely necessary, you can access the washroom in my apartment downstairs (for the summer months). Be mindful that this bathroom is shared with others. Use at your own risk.
