Sanitation Policies and Procedures for a Safe and Healthy Studio Practice During COVID-19



As we continue to navigate being open during the COVID-19 pandemic we want to share what we’ve worked hard on to bring you a safe space to retreat and return to. The safety of The Yoga Loft Team and community is so very important. Creating a space where all feel welcome and safe is our goal. We fully transitioned back into the studio with a soft Monday, June 1st, 2020. We know many of you are just as excited to return to the studio to practice while some are reluctant and just not ready. That is why we will continue to take baby steps in this journey and have a full schedule of in studio and virtual class offerings.


In following recommended guidelines we have implemented limited in studio class sizes, taped mat spacing to a minimum of 6ft.,  and so much more. Class sizes range from 8-16 students and all class sizes fall within 25% capacity guidelines.


Please see all of our policies and procedures outlined below. We will continue to make modifications as more information is known.


We continue to ask for your kindness and grace as we navigate this new way of gathering. Together we will find our way!
