New Mandates

“Problems will exist
up to the end of your life.
It is not a reason to drop
the practice of yoga.”

—BKS Iyengar

Dear Students,

These are the new mandates from our Island Health rep: Students will be required to wear a mask inside the studio at all times, except when engaged in yoga poses. We need to wear a mask to and from the mats, but once on the mats we may remove it. We are still able to offer classes at the former capacity of 15 students. ..until further notice.

Next week, the office is open during regular hours but there are no online or in studio classes because the Student Intensive is on.

Student Intensive starts next Monday August 30 and runs to Friday September 3, 9:30-12:30. Drop in spots are available for the zoom version only. Call us during office hours to register!
Space available in these September Studio Classes: Gary’s Sunday 4-5:30pm; Lucie’s Monday 10:30-12 noon; Ann’s Monday 5:30-7pm, Ty’s Wednesday 6-7:30pm and Lucie’s Thursday 5:30-7pm.
Registration is open for Fall Sunday Sadhanas.
We are closed Labour Day weekend Sat Sept 4-Mon Sept 6th. The September term begins Tuesday 7th.

Enjoy the last precious days of August!

Namaste, love,

Wendy, Monica and Billie

Protocols for in studio classes

You are welcome to register for studio classes if you have had both vaccines. Otherwise please take our online classes.
Gone are the days we can push through the early symptoms of something. So please come to class when you are feeling well. If not we will send you a link to a zoom class or give credit toward your next term.
Please wear a mask when entering the building. Mask optional once you are in the studio. We are registering 15 students in each class, 2 meters apart, as before.
Please bring your soft props: strap, blankets, mat and bolster, if you have one. Blocks, the wall and chairs will be used. (Otherwise, please bring two extra blankets or towels).
Namaste, love
Wendy and Britta
