It has been 234,592,310 days of self-isolation and phase 2 of re-opening Manitoba begins on Monday, June 1st.
As a yoga studio who hosts public classes within public spaces [our community centre home @ West End Community Centre ], we became a part of the province of Manitoba’s re-opening the economy plan.
Manitoba, due to our efforts (and/or due to our sparse population), has effectively flattened the curve and (while crossing our fingers to avoid a second wave) we are now emerging from social-isolation into yet another new normal.
What does that mean for our yoga classes?
The days of a packed class at Brandon City Yoga are gone for quite some time. Our class capacity has shrunk from 60 to 24 maximum. Although class sizes will be (much) smaller our collective positive energy and excitement in being reuinted as a community will remain.
There is nothing like practicing with 50 other yogis, absorbing all the positive energy [your energetic body absorbs the high frequency leaving you feeling amazing]!
The best thing about our space is that it is huge! We have a very large yoga shala [yoga space] that we can easily surpass the 2-meter requirement of social distancing with smaller class sizes. To ensure we meet + exceed the standards laid out by the province, I will be placing mat markers [ for you to place your mat behind ] on the disinfected floors before class and disinfecting high touch surfaces between classes.
Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the one who seesB.K.S. Iyengar
I will be meeting everyone at the door to do a quick health screening and ensure everyone uses hand-sanitizer before and after class. If you feel unwell, I kindly ask that you stay home. Please respect social distancing as you enter the space.
Registration is required before class starts (so no drop-ins). The shorter session length is to keep us adaptable and responsive to changes as circumstances change (personal and societal) .
These are strange times but the power of community, movement + mindfulness is undeniable to enhancing our well-being.
If you are not quite ready to attend in-person classes our growing collection of online classes will be apart of a new digital member-space. All live-streams, tutorials and videos will be removed from public access and made accessible only to our members moving forward.
Being a current member activates your invitation to the member-space.
How do I become a member if I do not want to attend in person?
You can either reserve a spot in any session that might work for you at a future date or send me a message to pay the digital membership. Membership allows you first access to future events (including September registration) and future online courses.
