Hello Purna Yoga East friends and family,

We are making our way into another month, season, election and phase of reopening in NC. Moving from phase two to phase 2.5, our governor has just allowed yoga studios to open at 30% capacity as of September 4th.

With that news, the Purna Yoga East team and I have been looking at ways to continue offering online zoom classes and begin offering live studio class options. One part of me does a big happy dance and will probably cry tears of gratitude during our first live class at PYE, while another part of me bears the full responsibility of keeping you, our students, friends, family and staff, healthy and safe.

For those of you near and far enjoying the membership and donation based online zoom yoga classes, we will continue to offer those through the fall! Those of you who have created a beautiful home practice will still have the opportunity to take our uplifting and nurturing Purna Yoga classes in the comfort, security and ease of your own home. If you haven't tried one, it's not too late!

For the month of September enjoy the online schedule posted below! Register for those classes at our web site www.PurnaYogaEast.com and either attend online in real time or receive a link to the recording of that class which is good for seven days. You only need to register for the class to receive the recording.

Starting the week of September 14th, we will offer the following LIVE studio classes at Purna Yoga East in addition to the online offerings.

Each class is limited to 6 students unless you are attending with a family member and can mat in close proximity with them. You and your family member will share "space" together along one of the double yoga wall sets - remember the GREAT YOGA WALL? All of the classes will be held upstairs in the larger studio with windows open.

You must preregister for all classes and if you register for a class please attend! Registration is through our Wellness Living online scheduler or the Achieve App that you used previously. You will need a current membership, 5- or 10- class pass or purchase a drop-in class pass.

Check out the new Purna Yoga live class etiquette protocols and procedures outlined below. We will support one another in keeping our studio a safe haven for everyone. Thank you in advance for your kindness and understanding that individual actions affect everyone and not just in these "special" times, but in all times.

LIVE, in person studio class etiquette

Leave all personal belongings except what you need for class in your car or at home. You are welcome to bring your own clean props to use during class.

Enter the studio via the back patio door - you will be greeted by your instructor there. All classes are held upstairs at this time.

Have your mask covering your mouth and nose on to enter the building.

Respect others' cocoons that extend six feet beyond their physical form. See or imagine their radiant soul shining out and greeting your radiant soul from a distance. This is the way to do socially distanced Purna Yoga.

Sign the class attendance/affidavit with a cleaned pen and after using the pen place it in the to be cleaned container. You'll figure this one out.

Remove your shoes at the bottom of the stairs.

Come up the stairs and wash your hands in the bathroom. By now I'm sure this is a regular practice whenever you enter a new space or your home.

Enter the Aadil Palkhivala studio with great gratitude and respect as you move to your practice zone. Fill up spaces from the front where the instructor teaches first. There will be a taped out space for you in which to enjoy your class. In the practice zone you will have all the props needed for your classes ready, sanitized and waiting for YOU! If you bring your own mat you can place it on top of the studio mat or simply "FROLD" the studio mat and set aside.

Once you're in your "yoga practice zone" you may remove your mask. If you need to leave that space for any reason and upon departure put your mask back on.

After class please maintain social distance as you exit the building and enjoy visiting with friends outside.
