Gems of Yoga Studio Safety

OUR COMMITMENT TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF SAFETY.

Our GOY community is our family—and like all families, we take care of each other. We sat down to put new safety measures in place that go beyond the guidelines, and this is just a start. We have a few more upgrades in the works, and as we learn more, we’ll be constantly fine-tuning and updating this page with the latest information.

We’re a woman-run boutique Yoga and Meditation classical studio dedicated to the health, peace and well being and safety of our community. Now we’re taking it to an even higher level.

Remember we keep ourselves safe and others get saved !

MEMBER / GUEST RESPONSIBILITY

KEEPING EACH OTHER SAFE. 

We’ve put a lot of changes in place—with details beyond what you see here. The way our new safety process will be most effective is if we all make sure to do our part in it.

Please make sure to practice social distancing when in close, shared spaces. Follow the markers placed around the studio to maintain a safe distance.

If you have a cough, fever, or symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to the studio until you’re symptom-free and fever-free for three days.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or have knowingly come into close contact with someone who has, we ask that you do not come to the studio for 14 days or until you’ve tested negative for COVID-19.

If you feel unwell or have any concerns about coming into class, please stay home and stay safe. We’ll happily add the class back to your account, and welcome you back when you’re healthy and feel comfortable coming back to exercise.

We’re encouraging members and staff to limit person-to-person contact, including hugs & high fives. Community and love are in our DNA—but right now, this is the best way to take care of our GOYfamily.

It might be a bit overwhelming at first. But trust us: As soon as that first song starts playing, you’ll find yourself in that familiar place you know and love. That sanctuary you’ve needed now more than ever is even safer now—and we can’t wait to see you there.

Moving forward, we’re continuing to monitor the situation.

If there is a reported case of COVID-19 at GOY and you were potentially in contact with the individual, you’ll be notified immediately. From there, we’ll take the proper safety precautions to disinfect the studio from top to bottom.

With no way to predict what will happen, the best way we can prepare is to respond and evolve as the situation develops—with nothing but your safety in mind.

Whether you plan to join us at GOY or feel more comfortable staying home, we’re here for you. If you have questions or concerns, let’s talk it out at [email protected]
