  • If you are pregnant, please let the instructor know so he/she can be aware and possibly alter poses for the safety of you and your developing baby.

COVID-19 Summary Action Plan

Essential Wave Studios has developed and implemented a comprehensive COVID-19 action plan. This Summary Plan is intended for distribution to visitors, prospective visitors, or companies requesting information on Essential Waves COVID-19 response protocols. All guests are expected at a minimum to observe Essential Waves protocols for reducing the potential spread of COVID-19. 


Self-Assessment: Employees are asked to perform a COVID self-assessment each day, prior to work, and instructed to act appropriately if they affirmatively answer any COVID risk questions. 

Cleaning: A cleaning regimen has been implemented. Employee workstations and frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, phones, and computers are cleaned with disinfectant regularly.

Face Covering Requirements: Face coverings are required to be worn by all employees.

Face coverings must cover the nose and mouth. An improperly handled face covering can be a source of contamination. Always put the same side against your face. The face covering should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face. It should allow for breathing without restriction. When handling the face covering, only touch the straps and be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. Practice good hand hygiene.


Employee Testing Positive for COVID-19: Essential Wave has developed response protocols if there is a positive diagnosis for COVID-19. Notification will be provided to all employees indicating that there was a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 and physical and administrative response measures will be initiated.
