I. RULES

​FOR INDIVIDUALS:

  • 1 yoga mat required for EVERY class (standard yoga mats are 6 feet in length, and thus will be used as a physical distancing measurement tool during Fitness Training)

  • Masks are mandatory  before and after class. You may leave your mask on your yoga mat during Fitness Training. 

  • Maintain a 6 foot radius from other individuals and groups at all times

FOR GROUPS

  • As per city guidelines, physical distancing requirements do NOT apply between you and others you are physically distancing with, with a limit of 10 people (henceforth referred to as your "Social Bubble"). 

  • If you would like to attend with your Social Bubble, you do NOT need to maintain a 6 foot distance from your bubble. You DO need to maintain a 6 foot radius from other individuals and other bubbles. 

  • 2 yoga mats PER GROUP required for EVERY class (standard yoga mats are 6 feet in length, and thus will be used as a physical distancing measurement tool during Fitness Training)

  • Masks are mandatory before and after class, regardless of whether you are within your social bubble. You may leave your mask on your yoga mat during Fitness Training. 

  • Maintain a 6 foot radius from other individuals and groups at all times

*** WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to attend events with your bubble as this will allow ALL participants to be closer to the instructor(s) and music - and thus we will all enjoy the class more!

 

II. EXPECTATIONS & SAFETY PROCEDURE

EXPECTATIONS

  • You have been limiting your close contact to other people within your Social Bubble and following all Municipal, Provincial, and Federal guidelines related to Covid-19

SAFETY PROCEDURE FOR IN-PERSON ATTENDEES

  1. Book your spot online up to 24 hours in advance of the event, including reading and agreeing to all waiver. 

  2. Arrive at the event 10-15min BEFORE the scheduled start time WITH A MASK and any other safety measures you wish to take.

  3. Check in with a School of Fitness Instructor & receive directions about where and how to setup your mats to comply with our physical distancing policy. If other people are speaking to instructors, please line up (socially distanced) and wait for your turn. 

  4. You must show proof of your completed Booking Form to a School of Fitness team member if we cannot find a record online. The Booking Form is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY and any participants that have not filled it out adequately will be asked to fix it on the spot and/or sent home to participate via the livestream.

III. CONSEQUENCES

Any individuals that are NOT strictly adhering to these guidelines may be asked to leave class immediately AND/OR prohibited from attending future classes. If one person in your social bubble is not following these guidelines, the ENTIRE GROUP will be asked to leave. 

There are limited instructors and MANY participants so we are relying on you to hold each other accountable to a high standard of safety. 

REMEMBER: Attending class in-person is a privilege, not a right. 

 

 

IV. CLASS LIMITS

Outdoor Classes will be limited to 98 participants (not including instructors), as to adhere to the 100 person outdoor gathering limit. YOU MUST BOOK A SPOT ONLINE TO ATTEND!

There will be a waitlist, and given the popular demand of classes over the past week, please SHOW UP if you book a spot out of respect to yourself, your instructors, and your fellow participants. Cancellation policy can be found here.
