How We’re Creating a Safer Studio Environment
In preparation for having you back in the studio, here are new studio protocols we want to make you aware of and a short video of what to expect when you come to the studio:
COVID-19 Infection Mitigation Measures
Teachers and clients are asked to stay home if exhibiting any symptoms or if any family members are infected. Current symptoms are known to be: Fever, Cough, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, Chills/Repeated shaking with chills, Muscle pain, Headache, Sore Throat, New loss of taste or smell.
All classes will take place in the large practice room and we have marked locations on the floor to ensure social distancing of 10 feet between people.
Teachers will not provide any hands-on assistance or touching. Aerial students will need to be experienced as teachers will not be able to spot or physically assist.
We are disinfecting bathrooms and common areas between classes.
We plan to keep all doors open to allow for air circulation and limit door knob surfaces to touch. Dress accordingly based on outside temperature.
Some classes that are prop intensive such as restorative may continue to be live streamed only.
Please assist us by cooperating with the following new protocols:
Before You Arrive
Register online in advance via our app or website. Classes are subject to change/cancellation based on minimum participant numbers, weather (if outdoors), impact of COVID-19 infection.
We cannot accommodate walk-ins.
Cancellations are required 4 hours prior to class to avoid being charged for the class.
In Studio Protocols
Social distancing - We ask that everyone observe social distancing of 6 feet while in the studio common areas and remain in marked locations in the large practice room.
Mask usage - We STRONGLY recommend clients wear masks when walking around in common areas where 6 feet of distance cannot be maintained.
Keeping hands clean - As always, we have hand sanitizer available for use and request that clients wash their hands when they arrive or use tissue paper to touch knobs and handles.
Credit card only payments - We will move to a cashless payment policy in the studio, only accepting credit card payments. Grey Owl gear may now be purchased online and we are in the process of transitioning more retail items to online.
Storage of personal items - Please bring minimal items with you to the studio. You may leave your shoes outside the practice room and bring necessary personal items (car keys, purse, etc.) along with your mat, props and water bottle into the large practice room. Cubbies are reserved for monthly member prop storage.
Bring your own mat and props, water bottles - All props will be removed from the studio initially as a safety measure so please bring your own mat and props ( block, strap, bolster, blanket, eye pillow, etc.). We will discontinue water and tea service for the time being, please bring your own water bottle.
After You Leave
If you become infected, please notify the studio (email@example.com) so we may follow appropriate post-infection protocols.
