COVID-19 Updates:

  • We are spraying down mats and all props at the end of class to maintain cleanliness.
  • High traffic/touched areas will be sanitized regularly.
  • We are accepting walk-ins at this time, but are strongly recommending pre-registration for ALL classes.

Late Arrival: In consideration for the safety of our students, the door leading to the studio lobby may be locked after the start of class time if we do not have staff at the front desk. Classes start promptly at the time indicated on the schedule. (The following option does not apply to Hot Yoga classes) If you are less than 10 minutes late, you may go around to the front window of the studio off Broadway Street. The instructor will come back around to open up the door as long as the class is not already full.
