CURRENT GUIDELINES:

1) I am requesting that all students take their temperature at home on the day they attend yoga class.  If you have any signs of a fever, please stay home. 

 2) Please attend class ONLY if you are feeling your best.  It is perfectly fine to attend class if you have seasonal allergies that have been diagnosed by a healthcare provider or if you have a minor concern that you are positive is unrelated to Covid-19.  

3) If you have any reason to think you may have come in contact with a Covid positive person, please, self-quarantine for 14 days or be sure to get a Covid-19 test before returning to the studio.  There are many testing locations throughout the state. Here is the link for Covid-19 testing locations in our area.  https://get-tested-covid19.org

4) If you attended a class, then discovered that you came in contact with a Covid positive person -  Please notify me as soon as possible and we can determine if any contact tracing is required.  At this point, the CDC does not recommend second person contact tracing, but as a community we can make the decision to exceed government recommendations.  If a student tests positive and has been in class, it is required that the student notify me and I will notify the CDC and any individuals that may have been affected.  I aim to be extremely cautious but also hold confidentiality in high regard. WE CAN DO THIS!  I know how much we care about each other.  Our community members have consistently been cautious. 

5)  I have placed small pieces of tape on the floor of the studio to help us to remember to keep plenty of space between students. Please use the tape as a guide for yoga mat placement.  Please keep your yoga mat behind the tape and use it as a reminder to socially distance.  Six feet is recommended, but we are aiming to maintain 8-10 feet (I measured - we are actually over 10 feet apart;) between participants. Please bring your own yoga mat, blanket and other supplies if possible.  If you forget your yoga supplies, don't worry we have some you may use. 

6) Let us all look at this time as an opportunity to take extra good care of ourselves and our loved ones.  We can reduce the risk or severity of many illnesses by doing what we can to improve our overall health.  Aim to get as much sleep as possible, stay hydrated, eat your veggies, go for your daily walk and remember how yoga has been shown to improve immune system function and reduce stress!  WE CAN DO THIS!

7) Please remember your yoga community is your extended family.  If you find yourself under quarantine or under the weather, please reach out to us!  There is a small Yogic Army willing to run errands or make soup if you need it.  Remember we create a "Covid Club" this summer, if you need anything we are here!

INDOOR REQUIREMENTS


-We require students to wear face masks inside the studio.

-We require that students maintain at least 8-10 feet of social distancing at all times for indoor classes.  

-Please only one student in the entryway at a time. 

-Apply hand sanitizer before and after class.

-Please bring your own yoga mat and yoga supplies if possible.

-Please place your yoga mat behind the tape line on the floor.  


As recommended, we plan to use natural ventilation as much as possible and for as long as possible (MAINE FOLK ARE TOUGH!), to increase outdoor air dilution and purification.  Air ventilation has been shown to be an extremely effective mitigation strategy.  After every yoga class, I spray a natural disinfectant in the air, open the windows fully and air out the studio.  I have also been disinfecting door knobs, bathroom surfaces and the yoga studio floor in between every class. I have extended the time between classes to 30 minutes.  This gives me some time to clean (I am sorry if I sometimes seem more rushed then usual :). All yoga mats and blankets are washed and quarantined for 4 days. Please remember to bring an extra layer of clothing and a blanket since the studio temperature fluctuates due to the windows being open.  


To keep our yoga community as safe as possible, I have decided to close the studio for the entire week after the Thanksgiving Holiday.  I think this can help limit any viral spread due to family gatherings.  We will begin a new 3-week series starting December 7th and ending before Christmas.  


We require all students and teachers to follow the self-screening method recommended by the CDC prior to each & every class or workshop. Please do not attend yoga if you answer yes to any of these screening questions.  Please take your temperature the day you attend a yoga class or workshop. 

  • Have you had a cough or sore throat?
  • Have you had a fever or do you feel feverish?
  • Do you have shortness of breath?
  • Do you have loss of taste or smell?
  • Do you have unexplained muscle aches or fatigue? 
  • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these or other flu-like symptoms within the past 14 days?
  • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?  
  • Have you traveled in a high risk area in the last 14 days?
Please do not attend yoga if you answer yes to any of these screening questions.  If you miss a class due to self-quarantine - please let me know and we'll fit you into another class!   I will be offering a few make up classes at the end of the 3 week series, so don't worry if you must miss a class.

THANK YOU!

The Importance of Yoga & Wellness

        It has become extremely clear how important our yoga practice is.   Our yoga practice boosts the immune system, expands respiration, helps us to manage stress, improves sleep patterns and connects us to what matters most in this world.  Yoga helps us to practice solution based thinking, acceptance and gratitude.  Yoga connects us with feelings of peace, contentment and realistic optimism.  Our practice enriches our lives and offers a place where we truly belong.  A well rounded yoga practice and supportive yoga community are important to our health and wellbeing.  


I have always taken cleanliness & the health of our community seriously.  We have followed the recommended mitigating strategies and continue to exceed the state and federal safety guidelines.   We were permitted to resume indoor yoga classes in June, but we chose to continue with outdoor classes exclusively while the weather was ideal.   


If you are interested in joining us for indoor yoga classes, please read this entire email.    Thank you for hanging in there with us during these unique times!


Indoor Yoga Class Guidelines - 


When indoor yoga classes resume, we will apply the best mitigating strategies we can.  We require students to wear face masks inside the studio. We also require that students maintain at least 6 feet of social distancing at all times.  This will require each of us to be sensitive to spatial limitations in the entryway.  As recommended, we plan to use natural ventilation as much as possible to increase outdoor air dilution and purification.  


According to the state and federal guidelines, our studio square footage allows us to have 7 individuals in the main studio room.  We plan to limit classes to 3 students during our first phase of reopening.   This gives us plenty of space for social distancing.  


During this first phase of indoor reopening, we will be offering two, 4-Week Yoga Class Series.  Students must pre-register and pre-pay for these 4 classes.  This guarantees your spot in the class.  Please try to attend all 4 classes in the series.  As long as the weather holds, we will continue to offer outdoor yoga classes.  These outdoor classes will be distinct from the indoor yoga class series.


We also ask all students and teachers to follow the self-screening method recommended by the CDC prior to each and every class or workshop.  If you miss a class because of anything listed below, you will get a replacement class pass to be used at any of our other yoga classes.  


The self-screening process

  • Have you had a cough or sore throat?
  • Have you had a fever or do you feel feverish?
  • Do you have shortness of breath?
  • Do you have loss of taste or smell?
  • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these or other flu-like symptoms within the past 14 days?
  • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?  
  • Have you traveled in a high risk area in the last 14 days?

We plan to move forward with caution, balance, realistic optimism and respect for all.  If our class series needs to be cancelled for the health and safety of our community, students will be refunded for the classes that were missed or students can choose to apply any missed classes to a different class, series or workshop.


With much love, gratitude & hope - Tracy

Yoga Therapy Sessions

What does a yoga therapy session look like?

Clients fill out a detailed health and lifestyle questionnaire that helps the client and yoga therapist gain clarity regarding the various aspects of life. These inquiries give individuals a clear picture of what is working well in their lives and what areas of life would flow better with some shifts.  The typical session last 1 1/2 - 2 hours long and it is most effective to schedule between 3 - 6 sessions with a Yoga Therapist.  During the session the yoga therapist will work with the client to formulate yoga postures and sequences, breathing exercises, meditation practices, guided visualization methods, yoga philosophy concepts, Ayurvedic lifestyle applications, thought and behavioral awareness, stress management techniques as well as time, routine and lifestyle management systems.   Yoga Therapy Clients leave their first session with simple yet powerful tools that will deepen their understanding of yoga and transform their personal practice.  Each client will receive a personalized and detailed 1-2 page session summary 1-2 weeks following their first session. This summary will provide them additional tools they can implement that will help them to keep the positive energy and momentum flowing until their next session. Yoga Therapy is the KEY for many individuals to unlocking the life they truly desire.
