Are we really allowed to re-open?
Yes! In fact, we could have re-opened on July 2nd. State executive order 157 and 158 allows for the re-opening of indoor recreational facilities. Some of these facilities include, but are not limited to, dance studios, martial arts studios, bowling alleys, indoor tennis, etc... and also include yoga studios! This was not made clear initially. So, we TRIPLE checked this information with both the governors office and the city. Plus, Jersey City + Hoboken have given us clearance to open, based on the state executive order allowing us to do so. If you'd like to read more from the State of NJ, you can do so here.
We are re-opening with a phased approach.
We are permitted to re-open at 25% capacity and with 6ft. social distancing. That means room for 8 spaces per class in Hoboken, and 9 in Jersey City. (The floors have been taped out with mat spacing for your convenience.)
We are starting with a limited schedule, both to reduce exposure and allow for cleaning time + to read and react to demand for indoor classes. We will add more indoor classes as we see demand increase. Expect anywhere from 2 to 3 classes per day in studio, to start.
We will still offer outdoor, live stream, and on demand classes for as long as needed!
We ask that all class reservations be made in advance, we will not be taking walk-ins at this time.
If you are new to our studio, you can try us out by purchasing 2 unlimited weeks for $40 here (this includes access to indoor, outdoor, and live stream classes.
Jersey City is opening on Monday, July 27th. Hoboken will open by August 1st.
The city of JC is asking that we limit prop usage in phase one to essentially not using any of our available props. We ask that you please bring your own yoga mat and any other props you may like to use. We have mats, blocks, eye pillows, bolsters, and straps are available for sale/pre-order. Due to this requirement, we will not initially offer full restorative yoga or yin yoga classes. Instead, expect "yin flow" (half gentle vinyasa, half yin) and "flow and let go" (gentle yoga, meditation, and restorative).
Masks are required at all times, including during class. Please note, we've done a trial run class and found practicing with a mask on to be surprisingly doable! What makes all the difference is the constant air flow from the fan/AC. We will ensure proper air flow and ventilation at all times for your comfort and safety.
