COVID Safety Plan

Dec 1, 2020 - We are currently only doing Virtual Classes and Private socially distanced classes. We are waiting for the PHO regulations for Indoor Group Fitness to be posted before we can re-open fully. Fingers crossed, and prayers up that this happens soon!  -Angel

Safety Procedures & Protocols for Students
Before Entering the Studio:

  • COVID Symptom Self-Check: We ask that all students self-check for symptoms before entering the studio. If you develop any cold/flu-like symptoms you will not be admitted into your class.

  • Reduced Change Rooms: Students are encouraged to arrive to class already dressed for class whenever possible.

  • Bring your own Water: Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to class from home. We do provide filtered and bottled water, however we ask that you use hand sanitizer before serving yourself.

  • Hand Sanitization: Students will be required to use hand sanitizer upon entry into the studio.

  • Temperature Taken: Every student must have their temperature taken by our front desk staff before entering class.

While in the Studio:

  • Hand Sanitization: Students will be provided with hand sanitizer during class to maintain sanitization

  • Personal cubbies will be provided for each student in the studio during their class time.  Cubbies are fully sterilized daily.  Students are encouraged to only bring the personal belongings needed for their classes with them and leave extra items at home.

  • Masks: We do require masks to be worn in the reception area. Masks are encouraged in studio class time.

  • Smaller Class Sizes: Each class size has reduced capacity making it easier to maintain social distancing.  

  • Equipment Sanitization: Poles, Hoops and Mats are all sanitized between each use. Each student receives their own sanitizing cloth to use throughout their class and at the end of class.

  • Aerial Hammock Sanitization: Students will be assigned their own personal sanitized Silk for every class.  All silks will be fully sanitized between classes.

  • Partner Work: In Pole Fitness and Aerial sports, spotting is often required. Students may spot each other as long as both parties are wearing masks, and they keep the same spotter throughout the class. If a student prefers to maintain 100% social distance, they will be required to use a safety mat, and their instructor will give more detailed verbal cues to keep the student safe.
