Given the increasing concern regarding COVID-19 in our community, we wanted to send a brief note to share a few measures we are taking to ensure we maintain a healthy and welcoming space for all.
Reminders and measures we are asking our community to follow for the time being:
Please be conscious of others and stay home to rest and recover if you are not feeling well. Here is a link to a helpful guide from the CDC regarding COVID-19 symptoms and other facts including how to limit the spread.
As always, we have hand sanitizer and tissue available throughout the studio for your use. Please use them if you need to cough or sneeze and dispose of used tissues (we are also coming up on allergy season), then wash or sanitize hands. Feel free to bring your own personal travel size hand sanitizer and tissues if you prefer to have them nearby you.
You are encouraged to bring your own mat, eye pillow, straps, props, etc. You may also choose to bring a clean towel or pillow case to place over bolsters and blankets. We also have small Manduka hand towels for sale at the studio and will be 25% off ($12).
If you are using a studio mat or blocks, please wipe them down well before and after use with our disinfecting wipes.
As a reminder, please follow our aerial yoga dress policy and wear shirts that cover the under arm and leggings that cover the back of the legs. If you are coughing or sneezing, please refrain from coming to class.
Additional measures we are taking to limit the spread of germs at the studio:
We have asked our teachers to refrain from hands-on assists and touching/massage for the time being.
We have removed eye pillows, straps and sand bags from the studio temporarily. All other props remain for your use and we will continue our regular washing of hammocks, blankets, bolster covers, increasing frequency as needed.
We’ve replaced our spray cleaning solution with Clorox/Lysol wipes that are available for cleaning equipment before and after use.
When possible, we’ll open all the doors to the studio to allow fresh air to circulate throughout.
We will continue to stay on top of the guidance from the CDC and local health authorities and welcome your input or questions.
Remember your breath is a powerful tool for dealing with anxiety and stress. Now is a good time to practice more conscious breathing throughout the day and elongating your exhales to help calm the nervous system.
Help support your immune system by prioritizing rest, being well nourished and staying active.
With love and gratitude,
Ariella and the Grey Owl Team
