OUR COVID-19 GUIDELINES

Please know that we have spent a considerable amount of time reviewing all of the provincial public health guidelines and requirements for the fitness industry to stay safe as we slowly reopen in phases as a province.  We have developed a corresponding plan that we are confident will ensure a safe and comfortable practice for everyone who attends our classes.   

 

Please refer to https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/ for all travel related restrictions and requirements, as these are consistent with every industry, and will be changing with each phase (we will provide these updates in writing in signage posted within the studio as the province opens up slowly).  

 

Our studio restrictions for phase two and three, with understanding that we will be lifting many of these restrictions in phase four and five as recommended by the province:

 

  • If you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms, regularly updated by NS Health, please stay home.  

  • Our studio doors will be locked until 15 minutes before class start, allowing us sufficient time for the distanced exit of a previous class.  Should you arrive at the studio earlier than this time, we encourage you to wait in your car or outside of the studio.

  • We will maintain 6 feet of physical distancing. Mat areas will be marked off, ensuring each individual practice space meets this distance.  All practitioners are required to face the front of the room.

  • Class sizes will be limited to 10 people, which includes the instructor.  We hope you feel safe and comfortable with these smaller sized classes. These numbers are critical to maintaining distance when entering and exiting the building, and with smaller sizes, we can meet this requirement with ease.

  • Hand sanitizer is available in our front room immediately after entering.

  • Payment, booking, and check-in will be run through our MINDBODY software to provide contactless transactions. If you require support with this, please email us at connect@beginningsyoga.com and we would be happy to walk you through the process.  

  • Our bolsters, blankets and mats will currently be unavailable for use. If you tend to get chilly, please remember to bring a warm sweater, as our blankets will not be used. You are welcome to bring your own props from home and are required to bring your own mat. 

  • Lounge area, complimentary coffee and tea bar will not be available at this time. Please arrive ready to practice.

  • Should a staff member feel unwell, or show any symptoms, we will work to coordinate a substitute for the class, but may be required to cancel. Our priority will be on health protocol compliance and we appreciate your patience with any changes needing to be made.

  • Please keep personal items brought in to a minimum.  We request that you store all of these items in the cubbies provided in our coat room and bring only your mat, props and water into the practice space.

  • Washrooms will be open and hand washing is encouraged. Disinfectant wipes will be available.
