COVID Care

Thank you to everyone who has participated in our COVID Care program for the last year.  Our precautions were successful in protecting everyone in our care, including students, teachers, staff and the vendors who help us provide our services.  Legal guidelines now allow all who are fully vaccinated to gather together without masks and without social distancing.  We are delighted to welcome everyone back!

After June 1, show your vaccination certificate at the door - onsite programs will be only for those who are fully vaccinated.   This means you’ve received your final shot and have completed your 14-day waiting period.

Of course, our online offerings continue and we're happy to serve you there.  If for some reason you are not able to be vaccinated or prefer not to, you still have a wealth of online programs and freebies to enjoy.

Our On-Site immersion programs continue as well, again only for those who are fully vaccinated.

CONTINUING COVID PRECAUTIONS

We recognize that there is still a slight risk, even when you are fully vaccinated.  That is why we continue to follow these precautions:

  • When anyone is On-Site who is not vaccinated, including vendors and repairmen, masks and social distancing will be required for everyone.
  • Air Sanitizing:  Our classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art circulation systems which use a high-efficiency filter to circulate the air.  During classes, our air filtration system remains on, which may make the room feel a little cooler than usual.  You may need a light sweater or shawl for comfort.
  • Small Groups:  We have carefully measured our classrooms and marked out “yoga stations,” providing social distancing for your practices.  Due to the limited space, pre-registration is required for every program.
  • If You Have Symptoms:  Please do not expose us to any possible contagion.  If you have flu-like symptoms or have noticed a loss of your ability to smell or taste, don't come.  Cancel your class or program and tell us why.  You will not be charged any fees.

CLASSROOM & RETREAT CENTER

Pose Adjustments & Personal Assistance:  Your teacher may help you realign your props or pose angles, and she may give you an adjustment to maximize the effects of your practice.  She will be masked.  If you prefer that you not be touched, you will be better served in our online classes.

Shared Bedrooms for immersion participants:  We are returning to full use of our dormitory-style accommodations.  We’ve worked to make them comfortable as well as beautiful, as many yogis describe:

The housing is amazing. Cozy and thoughtfully decorated.  The rooms were stocked with everything I needed. - Sam G.

It is very comfortable. Mattresses, pillows, etc. are very nice!  Love the little baskets in bathrooms – plenty of shelves.  – Patti R.

The familial feeling your roommates provide is an important part of your yogic immersion.  If you would prefer to share your bedroom with a specific person and they reciprocate, we can easily arrange that for you.  Bathrooms are still shared, and we provide a personal tote for you to manage your small items.

Meal Service (for immersion participants):  Meals are served in personal containers, which are disposable and recyclable (if you rinse them out).  The dining hall is again set up for family-type seating, with the additional option of eating outside (weather permitting). 

TRAVEL PRECAUTIONS

Please take care when traveling, so you don’t bring the virus in with you.  Being vaccinated doesn’t protect you from picking it up or sharing it; it merely protects you from serious illness due to it.  We appreciate you using your mask and socially distancing during your travels.
