In-Studio Classes & FAQ

We are BEYOND EXCITED to welcome you back to the hot room and to reconnect with you in person (from 6 ft away of course….)! Please see the important guidelines for return below, and know that while these changes may be initially challenging, they are all designed to keep you safe, happy, healthy and enjoying this practice we all love so much.


With the detailed information below you will know exactly what to expect before, during and after any in-studio classes.  

 

HOW ARE YOU KEEPING THE STUDIO CLEAN AND SANITARY? 

  • All safety measures and precautions are in strict accordance with the guidelines set forth by the NYS Department of Health; most are familiar to us at this point:

  • Please stay home if you are not feeling well or have been exposed to Covid-19 in the past 14 days.

  • Masks must be work at all times before, during and after class

  • Practice good hygiene and frequent hand washing

  • Maintain 6 ft. social distance at all times

  • Daily cleaning protocols have been thoroughly updated and will be strictly enforced by staff members. All Balance staff members are committed to cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces and high touch areas such as door handles and countertops before and after each and every single in-studio class.  

  • The studio will now accommodate a maximum of 9 students + the instructor comfortably socially distanced. 

  • Distancing signage is visible throughout the studio - note the 6 feet of spacing at the front desk. 

  • HEPA filters have been added to the HVAC system which is a forced air system that automatically brings fresh air into the studio whether generating heat or cooling.

  • There is now an air purification system in place in the studio lobby.

  • There are several sanitizing stations located throughout the studio. 

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST IN-STUDIO CLASS?

  • We will kick September off with a MODIFIED SCHEDULE to ensure thorough cleaning and sanitization of all surfaces and high touch areas, as well as to avoid overcrowding in between classes. Please let us know if there are specific days/times you would like to see added to future schedules.  

  • You MUST PRE-REGISTER HERE at least 15 minutes before class begins. 

  • You’ll notice that for many classes, there are two options (ONLINE & IN-STUDIO) make sure you sign up for the right one! CONTACT US if you need assistance. 

  • A late cancellation fee will now apply if a class is not cancelled 12 hours prior to the start; late cancels and no shows will be charged for class. 

  • Unfortunately, we can no longer accept walk-ins or late arrivals. 

  • Please limit non-essential items you bring into the studio as the locker rooms will not be available for personal storage during this time.

  • IMPORTANT! Please CONTACT US with updated address or phone numbers prior to your first visit. Accurate and current information is absolutely required for contact tracing purposes.  

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING FOR CLASS?

  • Yoga Mat + Water + Towel + Props (blocks, strap etc)

  • Water can be purchased by the bottle, but the water fountain is not available for refills

  • At this time we do not have any rentals. If you do forget something, you can purchase mats, blocks, straps, water bottles, clothes etc..

 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I ARRIVE AT THE STUDIO FOR CLASS?

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to class. Anticipate longer lines at check in while we work through the new processes; your patience is greatly appreciated as we work out any kinks. 

  • A temperature check and standard health screen waiver will now be required upon entry for Balance staff and students.  A temperature 99.6 ℉ or above will not be admitted in accordance with NYS law. 

  • The studio will now accommodate a maximum of 9 students + the instructor comfortably socially distanced. The floor is clearly and carefully marked with designated spaces for socially distanced yoga mats.

  • A reminder that masks are required at ALL times (including during class), for both students and the instructor. 

  • Note that at least initially, the temperature/humidity will be a little lower than usual in the class as we re-acclimate to the high temps and to practicing with a mask on.

 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT ONCE THE CLASS IS OVER?

  • Anti-bacterial wipes are available in the studio. Please wipe down the area around your yoga mat after class.

  • We no longer have mat spray available to sanitize your yoga mat, but we encourage you to bring your own. Check out the DIY spray HERE!  

  • Please collect all of your belongings prior to exiting the yoga studio.
