We don’t know about you all, but we’re SO ready to get back to practicing together. The studio will remain closed until further notice, but here’s the good news: We are proceeding with our  13th season of Outdoor Yoga! Of course, our outdoor practice will look a little different this year. In order to comply with local and state regulations, and in an effort to keep our community safe, we must enforce the following guidelines for our 2020 Outdoor Yoga season: 

  • In the “Yellow Phase” of the Governor’s Plan to Reopen Pennsylvania, we are permitted to hold gatherings of 25 persons or less. As a result, outdoor classes will be capped at 24 practitioners (plus one instructor) at Grandview Park and 10 practitioners (plus one instructor) at Station Square. 
  • You MUST pre-register for each class via MindBody in order to secure your spot. This also means that you will pre-pay for each class so that we can avoid the handling of cash on site. All individuals must have a MindBody account (i.e. family members must register individually). Sign up under the "Classes" section on our website. Classes are $10 each.  
  • Please bring your face mask and plan to wear it during practice. Of course, there can be medical exceptions and breaks when necessary. We are making the best-informed decision with this policy, hoping to relax it as soon as possible. This is about concern for the collective wellbeing of our community.
  • Please bring your own yoga mat, towel, water, sunscreen, and whatever else you’d like for your practice. 
  • Yoga mats will be spaced ~6 feet apart.
  • If we must cancel class due to inclement weather, we will make that determination 30 minutes before class. The class will be cancelled via MindBody, and we will make the announcement on social media. 
  • There will be no refunds in the event of a cancelled class. We are relying on these outdoor classes to financially sustain the studio until we can reopen, and we hope you will understand this decision. 

We thank you for your cooperation as we navigate these government regulations. It is our hope that we can share the healing practice of yoga in a way that is safe and respectful. We can’t wait to practice with you again!
