What’s it like at the studio now?! Important info & FAQ


    “I had the chance to go to a wonderful class last night at the studio. Beforehand, I was a bit nervous about attending a public indoor class but after seeing the work you guys are putting into the distancing and sanitization of the studio, I can say that my worry disappeared. It is so good to feel the energy of the people at the studio and the live voice of the instructor. It filled me up and relaxed my mind. Thank you so much. Can’t wait for the next class. ❤️ “ – Russell

     

    We are overjoyed with the re-opening of the studio last week and so grateful for the staff and students who have entered Prana. With the extra space and a slower refined pace, we are integrating nicely back in to a new way of running the studio. Here’s everything you need to know about cleaning protocols, special air filters, pass options, livestreams, Prana Yoga TV & more. Before coming in, please read below:

     

    WE ARE OPEN!

     

    Yes yoga has the green light! We have enjoyed welcoming our community back into our sweet yoga home. It’s a delicate and exciting time as we navigate the waters of running the studio in our changed world. We’ve been busy behind the scenes creating a safe and welcoming environment for you to return to.

     

    We have implemented stringent guidelines and cleaning protocols for our teachers and staff to follow, and there are lots of new guidelines for our students as well. Please read all details below so we can work together to ensure the health, safety and enjoyment of you and our entire team.

     

    We have started with a limited schedule and plan to expand it quickly as the classes fill. Based on the survey results, some of you will continue to practice at home with the livestreams, while some of you are ready to get on your mat at Prana. For now all classes will be 60 min to allow plenty of time to sanitize between classes, and to ensure there is a spacious flow to enter and exit the building. We will be running Regular and Warm classes (with added humidity, heat panels & fireplace). Hot Yoga will return in the fall. We appreciate your patience and feedback as we adapt and change over these next few weeks.

     

    We are cleaning and sanitizing with an all natural hospital grade disinfectant between every class, and hand sanitizer is available throughout the studio. We have touchless soap dispensers and paper towels available in the washrooms. You may wear masks in the common areas (not required) but not during your yoga practice. Vinyl floor stickers designate distancing in reception and yoga rooms.

     

    WHAT TO EXPECT:

     

    ONLINE SIGN IN ONLY. No walk-ins please! Due to social distancing, classes sizes are limited to less than half capacity, and must be reserved in advance.

    THE YOGA ROOMS

    • Our warm/hot room has an ERV that pulls in 100% fresh air completely exchanging the room air within 20 minutes! Fresh outside air also passes through a high grade carbon filter. Humidity has been shown to prevent droplet spread for safe, clean air. Earth room and reception have great airflow with air circulation ON 24 hours per day! We will also be propping open doors whenever possible.
    • Each mat space is marked with a lotus sticker. Please place the front center of your mat on the sticker to maintain physical distancing.
    • Teachers will stay on their mats and will not be doing any hands on assists.

     

    MEMBERSHIPS & CLASS CARDS

    • All 10/20 class passes and pre-paid year passes will have 3 months added.
    • All Monthly Unlimited Auto Renew Memberships will remain at half price for the livestreams. Full price membership will be reinstated on your first class visit.

     

    Let’s all be kind, clear and open minded as we navigate coming back together for the path and practice of yoga. We get to explore this new way to connect with ourselves and each other!
