Covid Safety Protocol
In-studio classes resume Monday, April 12th at our Echo Park studio. We love our ODDfam and want to keep one another safe! Here are the safety measures that you can expect when taking class in-studio again. We look forward to seeing you in person!
Our HVAC system has been updated with multiple layers of increased air sanitation and clean airflow!
We’ve increased the fresh air flow being pulled in through our HVAC system and delivered into the studios and we will keep the fan running at all times during class to ensure maximum airflow and filtration.
All of our HVAC filters have been upgraded to Merv-13 filters: Following recommendations from CDC and The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, we’ve installed MERV 13 filters into all of our air returns. MERV 13 filters are the highest-rated filters, structured to capture airborne viruses as well as bacteria, allergens, mold, and pollens.
In addition to our HVAC system, we have Enviroklenz air purifiers in our lobby and yoga rooms. The EnviroKlenz Air Cartridge utilizing UVC lamps and has been independently tested and proven to remove 99.9% of viruses and bacteria.
Our windows have been upgraded to operable windows to ensure maximum airflow in our yoga rooms – fresh air is the best air!
OUR DEEP DEEP-CLEANING PROCESS
We have added additional time between classes for the proper disinfection of our studio space. Every high touchpoint in the practice room and lobby/bathrooms will be disinfected with EPA registered hospital grade disinfectant between each class.
We also utilize a fogger machine to spray EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant throughout our studio space. The fogging treatment eliminates odor, mold, dust mites and kills 99.999% of bacteria, germs, cold, and flu viruses, these include but are not limited to: SARS Coronavirus.
Our studios are also professionally deep cleaned weekly.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN-STUDIO
Secure face masks that cover both the nose and mouth are required to be worn at all times inside the studio. Water breaks are fine on your mat, but if your mask needs to be removed for any other reason, please step outside.
Touchless hand sanitizer stations are available in the lobby and inside the studio.
To prevent spread, we will not be renting any mats or equipment – so bring your own props to class! We have new and used props and mats available for sale in our retail store if you forget.
No contact water fill-up stations are available, water fountains will not be available for use.
Payment & Registration
All students will be required to fill out an updated waiver before attending their first class back in-studio
Pre-registration is required for all classes and the cutoff is 15 minutes before class starts.
All payments will be contactless by adding payment through the app, providing a card to keep on file, or using the cc scanner on your own in the studio. We are not accepting cash at this time.
Should class sell out, we will have 5 waitlist spots available, our system will text or email you to let you know if a spot has opened up.
Students will maintain 6-foot distance throughout the studio – we have placed stickers throughout the studio to ensure proper distancing.
Upon arrival, all students will be required to take their temperature and attest to our health screening questions. If you are feeling anything other than 100%, please stay home and enjoy our online or on-demand classes.
To sign in for class, students will scan their One Down Dog key tag or give their name to desk staff when they arrive to check-in for their pre-registered class.
Class Cancellation Deadlines
To allow as many students as possible with limited capacity, we are strictly enforcing our cancellation policy to 1 hour before class starts or you will be assessed a late cancel fee of $15.
There is no late entry for students once class begins.
Late arrival is considered a late cancellation and will be assessed a fee of $15.
Entering the Yoga Room
Students will be guided into the room one at a time and set up from the front left to right in marked spaces. Please maintain 6 feet from everyone at all times.
There are no hands-on adjustments and teachers will guide the class from their mat. Students are encouraged to use the restroom before or after class so that once class begins, ideally no one is moving around the room.
DISTANT, BUT TOGETHER
We can’t wait to be together again! Following CDC guidelines we have measured our studio spaces and reduced class sizes to ensure proper social distancing.
All of our mat spaces are marked and measured 6 feet away from each other (look for the black Patrick stickers on the floor).
We ask that only 4 students be in the lobby at a time and ask that you wait at the designated spot in the studio or outside for class to begin if the lobby is full.
One-way foot traffic flows in and out of the practice room
Our retail is still available! If you’d like to make a contactless purchase, please stand on the floor marker when waiting in line and our staff will guide you through the purchase process. You can also shop our online store from anywhere!
Per our usual policy, we will not be accepting returns.
