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

General Rules & Procedures for Class
Masks

As of May 14th, 2021 masks are not required at Desert Sun Yoga.

CDC guidelines suggest that unvaccinated individuals continue to wear masks in settings similar to group classes at Desert Sun Yoga. 

Out of caution for fellow students and instructors we ask all unvaccinated individuals to wear their masks unless they are in their designated mat area.

Check-In Procedures

Due to limited class sizes, it is required that students pre-register for class.  No Walk-In's.

We appreciate your cooperation with our new check in procedures.

1. Please wait outside of studio until instructor invites you in.

2. Please store any materials inside of the cubies, drop your mat & swing off in your marked area.

3. Wash hands for at least 20 seconds before instructor hangs your swing.

Please do not attend class if you are feeling sick, have any Covid-19 like symptoms, or are awaiting test results.

Social Distancing During Class
  1. Please refrain from handshaking, hugging, or otherwise touching instructor or other students at the studio.        

Hand-On Assistance
  1. Aerial: Safety in aerial has always been, and remains the number 1 priority at Desert Sun Yoga. Teachers will be available for hands on assistance to maintain safety in class, but will rely on other teaching methods as much as possible. Please use a great deal of care as you learn new things to create a safe environment for yourself, your classmates, and your teachers. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Prop Rentals
  1. Aerial Hammocks

  • All studio swings will be 'rested' for at least 36 hour between use. 

  • Students are welcome to reach out to Kassi to purchase their own swing, or purchase a previously used swing from the studio.

  • Please consult Kassi before purchasing your aerial hammock to ensure correct strength quality & height. Amazon purchases for aerial equipment is NEVER recommended.

  • BYOS Classes. Be sure to check the description for your class and bring all necessary materials. Some classes require that you have your own swing.
