Standards of Health

The safest experience for everyone is the one that is co-created with you.

As has always been the case, we remain committed to maintaining our high standards of health and hygiene, but we need your help too.

Mandatory health screening & etiquette
Health screening for guests, teachers and team members is required. Only those who meet requirements and follow mandatory safety guidelines are permitted. 

If you show any signs of illness while present in the studio (for example, coughing) or you do not follow our safety protocols, we will ask you to leave. 

Reduced capacity & focused programming
Capacities reduced to give the required 6 feet space in between each mat. Markers identify where to place your mat. Focused programming allows more time in between classes for increased cleaning.

Cleaning procedures
High touch areas are regularly and thoroughly cleaned using a hospital grade disinfectant that is known to kill viruses. Classroom floors and high touch areas like switches and handles will be disinfected after each class. Changing rooms are disinfected after sign in. Team members wear gloves when cleaning. 

Protection of staff
Plexiglass barriers are installed around the sign in station. We’ve provided gloves and face masks for team members. Teams have been provided with additional health, safety and personal hygiene training prior to working in the studio.

Reduced services
No props are available and programming is offered with this in mind.

  • Tea lounge spaces, showers, saunas and water fountains remain closed.
  • Tea service, mat and towel rentals and tokens are temporarily discontinued.

Retail Boutique
At this time, our boutiques are closed during our studio hours. Please contact boutique@yyoga.ca for support with purchasing from our boutique. We would love to help you select props, gear & apparel that you can purchase in advance and pick up before class, or curbside.
