Yes, Folks, we are still here, and so is the pandemic.
Face masks are still a requirement so long as the state mandates are in place, whether or not you've already received your vaccine(s).
We'll still check your temperature at the door for entry and we continue to space out our appointments to allow adequate time to properly sanitize and sterilize between appointments. However, if you have a family member (or 2 or 3...), you can make your appointments within 15 minutes of each other since we assume you are already sharing each other's air and we won't need to ventilate between you, but you'll need to talk to our staff to book that closely together.
If you feel sick, call us to reschedule or cancel your appointment. You will not be charged the "Late Cancel" fee or "No Show" fee if you call us to let us know what's going on. Now, if you just don't show up, we have no way of knowing the situation and charges will be assessed.
There's also been some rumors going around. Let me put those to rest:
I take many precautions in excess of the minimum requirements for the care and treatment of my patients, clients, and guests.TRUE
I or my staff chemically disinfect all surfaces of the massage room and bathrooms between each and every client.
I or my staff chemically disinfect the Yoga room floor prior to each class to protect all students from passive infection from droplets falling to and accumulating on the floor.
I or my staff use UV sterilization in the massage room after each session to ensure that all disease causing organisms are rendered inert so that even the most vulnerable of my patrons can feel safe entering the building and receiving services.
I use air purifiers in the massage room, reception/gift shop, and several in the yoga room.
All guests and staff are required to wear face masks that cover their nose and mouth for the duration of their time on site.
I wear gloves during treatments.TRUE. Not only do I wear non-latex gloves during all massage and body work services, I also use arm covers, when necessary. I find that this is a prudent use of Universal Precautions, especially during a pandemic, to minimize possible transmission of infectious materials and protect my most vulnerable patrons.
Universal Precautions, as most practitioners were taught during their tenure at school and in clinical practice thereafter, minimizes the transference of non-pandemic infections as well [i.e. athlete's foot, herpes simplex (cold sores), verruca vulgaris skin infections (warts), boils, common cold, etc.].
As a side note: I live on a farm and care for my animals, garden, and family when I am not at the studio. These activities can leave my hands a little rough or raw, despite my use of hand protection. I have found the gloves to be a friendly protector for myself as well as my clients in the event of scrapes and scratches on my hands.

Midweek Mindfulness is a new Yoga class that we've started offering in February. It combines Mindfulness practices and gentle Yoga movements to enhance your calm and increase your resilience. It is ideal for beginners or folks with limited mobility. The Drop in rate is $20 and memberships are available.
Don't Fall on your Asana is a new in-person Yoga Class that we'll be offering the Last Friday of the month @ 5:30pm. It is a BYOB Yoga class meant to be fun, de-stressing... and maybe a bit sassy! This is a moving class, so please let me know if you have any movement restrictions BEFORE class so I can account for them while planning the routine. This class is $25/per person and is not included in our memberships due to it's special nature.
Family Yoga Classes are now offered Wednesdays at 4pm. They are fun for the whole family and affordable: only $5/person. Let the kidddos work off some extra energy while you find your bliss amongst the chaos.
Due to Social Distancing needs, space is limited and we can have up to 10 people per in-person class or 20 for the Family Yoga class. There will be a waitlist option if an in-person class is full. That way, should someone cancel, the 1st person on the list will be notified, etc..
