At YogaFever, we value the relationships we have built with our customers, community and our team members over the years. And we know that you rely on us to protect your health and safety while you are in our facility.
At this critical moment, your health is our highest priority. The fight against the virus of 2020 is not over, and we are committed to doing our part to prevent the spread of this disease in our community.
Working in close consultation with medical experts and health officials, YogaFever has developed a comprehensive set of protocols that meet or exceed the guidelines.
Below is a high-level overview of how YogaFever has reopened which we call “YogaFever Clean”. While not all inclusive, this summary will give you an overview of the comprehensive efforts we are taking as a small business to protect your health and safety all the while creating a plan that makes sense. Our staff is thoroughly trained on these protocols and plan, and we have applied these protocols consistently and aggressively.
YogaFever Clean represents a new way of doing business for us. And while we are committed to delivering the great service you’ve come to expect from us, your safety – and the safety of our team members – must be our highest priority during these unprecedented times.
YogaFever Cleaning Protocol in Response to the Virus Outbreak 2020:
- Do not touch your face or facemask
- Regular hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds should be done after sneezing, coughing, or nose blowing, after using the restroom.
- If soap and water are not available, use a (60% min) alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Sanitizing stations are installed logically throughout the studio.
- All temperatures will be taken upon entering the studio.
YogaFever IC and STUDENTS must conduct health checks daily. Do not come to the studio to work out sick.
- Do you have a fever?
- Do you have respiratory symptoms?
- If sick, seek care through your primary health provider.
- If found to have the virus of 2020, all ICs and students should immediately self-report and notify the owner Shannon Austin at email@example.com (616) 805-3603.
All mats and bikes are 6 feet – 8 feet apart from person to person.
In our common area, please wear your mask at all times. You are required to wear a face mask upon entering.
Only wear gloves when cleaning. Gloves spread germs. Students should not wear gloves.
Each class will open doors 10 minutes prior to class. Weather permitting, the external doors will be propped open before and after class for one less touch area.
HOW TO ENTER THE STUDIO
- Please pre-register and pre pay for every class as size will be limited due to spacial distancing. You will be charged automatically for a NO SHOW the value of the class which is $24 regardless of your membership level. So, if you have an unlimited memberships and “no show” you will be charged $24. If you booked a drop in and “no show”, that drop in class fee will be utilized. There are no refunds for “no show”. You have a window of 1 hour to cancel class with no penalty. Most studios are asking for 6 – 24 hours notice to not be charged a fee, we are simply asking for one hour to allow another member to slip in last minute.
- There will be no lost and found.
- Wash your hands.
- Use the touch free check in station with your key card upon arrival.
- Bring your own yoga mat, water, towel and spin shoes. All weights and bands will be utilized in barre and sculpt classes. Those props will be sanitized before the class. After your class, leave props at your designated space to be fully sanitized by our team.
- Our HVAC system is brand new throughout the entire facility. That includes all duct work, vents, and ventilation. We have 2 extremely high tech Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) units that measure CO2 levels throughout the space and filters the air inside. When a certain level of CO2 is met, the ERV motor turns on and exhausts air out of the room and supplies fresh air from the outside in. We have had these adjusted and turned on so that stagnant air is exhausting continuously and fresh air is continuously is being supplied. This is important as we are constantly cleansing the air inside the studio spaces and common areas. Our engineers have configured that with this adjustment our studio spaces including common areas are flushing 100% of the air every hour.
- Several barre, yoga and sculpt classes will be live streamed to support our online community. The live stream is only recording the teacher or a demonstrator who will stay in their designated space at all times. These classes will not be able to be viewed later. They are booked the same way that a regular in studio class is booked.
- No physical touch of any kind including hands on healing or physical adjustments will be made. Please respect personal boundaries and do not high five or hug in the studio. I know we all miss each other and want desperately to connect, but we must respect the barrier.
- Studio B will be closed temporarily with the exception of private 1:1 sessions. All barre and sculpt classes will be performed next door at 1144 Wealthy Street, which was our temporary location during our rebuild. You must check in at 1154 (our usual location) and then head next door. All the same protocols are in place next door.
- Studio C for spin classes will have regular in studio classes throughout the day with a limited capacity. While the studio does not have a live teacher, we will run $10 community classes that can be used by members for free where there will be YouTube classes played every hour on the hour. This means even if you cannot access a class with a teacher in studio, you still a “virtual in studio” RIDE. This may be more convenient for some as you can come with a small group and do a studio “take over” to get in your daily burn or just come alone and have the state of the art equipment to ride on with more privacy. All bikes will be heavily sanitized before and after each use.
