We are excited to be opening up the Lotus Studio to 22 students. We will be continuing to live stream classes while some students are still not comfortable with the studio experience. Once we are no longer accommodating the streaming passes we will return the studio to the mirrors.
So with this in mind, we will keep the setup with the teacher in front of the Lotus. For the back two rows, please use the existing dots, but as you get closer to the storage closet, we are turning the mats along the side wall. There will be a diagram outside the door to help you navigate the setup and Lindsey has taped the spots that don’t use our existing dots.
We have started to add in Glow classes but most are still warm (33 degrees), and we have dialed down the intensity level slightly so its easier for students to maintain a steady breathing pattern through the nose. Teachers also encourage students to take breaks if they become unable to control their breath in this way.You will notice that the heat is better distributed in the room as we did replace seven of the heat panels that were not functioning at 100%.
Regarding cleaning protocols in between classes, the teachers are responsible for sanitizing all high touch surfaces including; door handles, light switches, recording equipment, music and heat controls, towel plate and tongs which are used for handing out the chilled lemon grass towels. Our towel service is given to only those students who want it and is done so after the teacher sanitizes their hands and puts on a mask.The attendants follow the teachers cleaning with a complete sanitization of mirrors and floors, and they will often double sanitize the high touch surfaces.
Change rooms and other common areas are also sanitized once class goes in so counters, lockers, toilets, sinks, etc. are all disinfected between use. Change rooms are open for those students who need it, but many students are coming ready to practice and bypassing the change rooms.
We have an excellent air exchange system in the yoga studio with the fan running at all times, and after each class do a full air exchange cycle, moving out the old air and bringing in new fresh air from outside. We have also added a Molekule Pro which uses Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO) nanotechnology to destroy viruses, allergens, bacteria, mold, chemicals & more.
All our staff are screened on the daily before they work/teach, and all students are also required to fill out a Covid waiver before each class they attend.
Each class time will also offer a streaming class while we still have online passes being used. Passes are available at a reduced rate of 50% for these classes. You will receive a link 30 minutes before the class to allow you to stream with the in-studio class.
Balance your mind and body in a rejuvenating yoga experience at Bliss YogaSpa. From our comfortable studio to our heated and non-heated yoga classes, we have brought together all of the elements necessary for achieving harmony and well-being.
Check your busy day at the door and immerse yourself in a calming experience. Enjoy a refreshing moment in our yoga lounge and locker rooms, both of which are supplied with amenities and high-quality retail products. Then participate in one of the many available yoga classes taught by our knowledgeable instructors - they’re never overcrowded. Yoga practitioners of all levels are welcome.
Please be prepared and in the room five minutes prior to class. Latecomers will not be permitted as we wish to honour those in the room as well as the teacher
Our yoga classes are held in our spacious and energizing studio, which is designed to promote health and wellness. Feel the benefits of negative ions (they help you absorb oxygen and feel more energized) as they permeate the studios through our Moodspace wall during a heated or non-heated class. During a hot yoga class, you’ll be heated comfortably by the American clay walls and the infrared heat panels on our ceiling. You’ll feel refreshed and rejuvenated after every class.
If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage that you discuss with your teacher - they are here to enhance your yoga experience. We also ask that you be on your mat five minutes prior to class start time as we close registration at that time. If you pre-registered and do not cancel within 2 hours or do not show up, you will lose one class off your pass or one day from your unlimited.
Please note to bring a towel for showering after your hot yoga class.
