At Waves, the safety of our teachers, our students, and our community is of the utmost importance to us. We feel a “proceed with caution” plan is appropriate at this time. We know many of you are excited to return to in-person classes as quickly as possible. We also understand that many people feel strongly about sheltering in place. In order to accommodate this spectrum, we have developed a schedule that offers both in-person classes along with virtual class offerings. We will plan on having a soft opening starting on Saturday, May 30th.
Here is the new schedule: May - June 2020 Monday 9:00am Flow 6:30pm Power Tuesday 9:00am Slow 6:30pm Flow** Wednesday 9:00am Begin 6:30pm Power* Thursday 9:00am Flow 6:30pm Slow** Friday 9:00am Ground 12:00pm Flow* Saturday 9:00am Power Sunday 9:00am Slow*
*Available in-person & live on Zoom! | **Our Beach Yoga Classes will begin on Tuesday, June 23th and Thursday, June 25th @ 6:30pm. Find out more about our beach yoga classes here.
Class Procedures: With limited classes and limited space, we have put the following protocol in place-
Students are strongly encouraged to pre-register for class. We will only have 10 spots available, maximum. You will be allowed to preregister 10 days ahead of time for classes.
Classes will be heated to 70-80 degrees, depending on the weather.
Since studio space is so precious right now, our new cancellation policy will allow you to cancel 8 hours before class for your pass to return to your account. Please do your best to not no-show during this time, as we do not want to enact a no-show fee.
There will be markings on the floor for where to put your mat. We will open 15 minutes before class for you to choose a spot. Plan to social distance as far away as possible from people already set up, until the spaces fill in.
Please be on time for class. Doors will lock at the start of class time to avoid disruption of space and check in. We do not have any desk staff for the time being.
Upon arriving at the studio, you will notice our coat hooks have moved to the front of the lobby and our desk has moved to the back. We made this shift so there is easy entrance and exit for you. Plus, now our retail wall is much bigger!
Bring as little personal belongings into the studio as you can. Leave your shoes outside the lobby, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer, and set up for class.
You may wear a mask in the studio but it is not required. It may prove challenging to breathe well during class.
Props will not be provided for class. You are encouraged to bring props from home. We will have blocks, straps and mats for sale.
Please bring your own water bottle. Water will not be provided at the studio until further notice.
Register for class and pay online whenever possible to have minimal exchanges at the front desk.
Refrain from greeting others with handshakes, hugs or other personal contact. There will be no hands on adjustments used in class. But please continue to chat and connect with your Waves community; socially distanced, of course.
If you or anyone in your house is experiencing any symptoms of being unwell, or have a cough, please do not come to the studio.
Zoom Class Procedures: Not ready to come back to the studio yet? We will be offering a few of our in-person studio classes live on Zoom!

We will be sending the Zoom invitation & password via email an hour before class begins.

Our Cleaning Procedures:
Our studio has been thoroughly deep cleaned in preparation for reopening.
Our floors will be cleaned every day after classes.
Hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray will be provided to you.
We will sage our space before each class which clears energy and has shown to disinfect the air.
All commonly touched surfaces (doors, light switches, handles, etc.) will be disinfected after each class.
The bathroom will be thoroughly disinfected daily.
We will continue to thoroughly clean our studio regularly as we always have.
Remember “This isn’t forever, it’s just for now!” We will remain cautious and keep our plan fluid as the tide changes. We welcome any questions or concerns you many have. We are so grateful to all of you who continue to stick with us through this time of challenge and transition.
