Re-opening Procedures

Monday, January 18th 

Providing a safe studio space is of utmost importance, and our plan below is designed to keep you, your families and our team healthy. Many of these measures are also directed by the State of Michigan. A zero tolerance policy is in place for all operating procedures outlined below.


  • Properly wearing a mask is required at all times while inside the studio 

  • We have athletic designed masks available for purchase in studio (moisture wicking, antimicrobial and exceeds CDC recommendation for protection) designed and tested for cardiovascular exercise ($20) 

Touchless Registration

  • Pre-registration required for all classes via MindBody app or desktop (many of you have been doing this all summer long) 

  • No walk-ins allowed  

  • All classes / class pack purchases must happen via MindBody app or desktop (no cash or credit sales in studio)  

  • Classes can only be scheduled out 5 days in advance 

  • 4 hour cancellation policy due to limited in studio capacity, single class cancellation fee will apply ($22)  

New Waiver Required For All Students

  • Depending on how you use MindBody (app vs desktop) you will receive a waiver reset one of two ways: either by alert in the MindBody app or in your next class reservation email with a blue underlined link that you need to click on and complete: Health & Safety COVID-19 Required Waiver

Studio Arrival & Departure 

  • Outside studio door will open 5 MINUTES before class starts 

  • Upon arrival, sanitize your hands using sanitizer pump on front counter 

  • Swipe your CYS key tag (if you are a new student and need a key tag, let the front desk team know) 

  • Head to your mat and stay on your mat 

  • Once class ends, head to the lobby and depart the studio within 5 MINUTES

  • If you need to leave your mat to use the bathroom, maintain 6ft social distancing at all times 

Class Procedures 

  • Mat must be placed within mat marker location on the yoga room floor 

  • Main Yoga Room A - 19 student capacity (socially distanced, 25% max capacity) 

  • Overflow Yoga Room B - 4 student capacity (for experienced students only, limited teacher visibility, minimal heat - this is a bookable option on MindBody) 

  • The rear door of Main Yoga Room A and only door to Overflow Yoga Room B will remain open 

  • We will ease into the Infrared Radiant Heat, heat temperature will be lowered for acclimatization to the heat and help to accommodate mask breathing 

  • Infrared Heat ONLY; No HVAC heat will be used reducing circulation of pathogens in the air

  • Fans turned on after class once all students have cleared the room

  • Floors cleaned with FDA approved cleaning agent
