Purchasing memberships and classes using YHC branded app

Existing members, please contact membership@yogahealthcenter with a request for free VOD classes.

Please care for yourself and your community.

In response to the coronavirus, we’d like to let you know what we are doing as a facility and to remind you about some best practices to avoid spreading any infection.

We have increased cleaning frequency and added other sanitizing tasks to our regular upkeep duties; the wiping down (with Clorox or other disinfectants) all door handles, railings, all bathroom fixtures (e.g., sink fixtures and toilet flush push buttons in the restrooms), countertops and edges, and other places where people may regularly touch.

We ask those attending (Students, Staff, and Teachers) Yoga Health Center to do the following:

  • Most importantly, if you have a fever, cough, or flu symptoms please refrain from coming to class and please visit your physician.

  • Take advantage of the hand sanitizers distributed throughout the premises.

  • Wash hands frequently & thoroughly with warm water & soap (for at least 20 seconds).

  • According to the CDC when you cough or sneeze you should either: 1) completely cover your mouth and nose with a tissue (that is then thrown away and then use hand sanitizer afterward) or, 2) cough or sneeze into your sleeve in the crook of your arm, then change your shirt as soon as possible.

  • Avoiding touching your face (especially your eyes, nose, and mouth) with unwashed hands.

  • Consider purchasing and using your own props such as blocks and/or straps.

 

And, of course, we recommend following all other best practices for avoiding respiratory illness:

Yoga and fitness practices play an important role in helping our community through these trying times. We will continue to bring excellent classes and services to our community in a safe environment.

Avoid a Ticket!

Directly behind our building is reserved parking for tenant ONLY businesses. They are all clearly marked and It is a tow-away zone. Use the no charge parking lot. Also, if there is an empty spot be sure and not pull forward. If not, you will essentially end up parking backwards and you WILL get a ticket. - October 1, 2018

Lost & Found Policy - During COVID we are discarding all items left behind.  Please remember to take all your items.

For the good of all students & for sanitary purposes, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, we will no longer store left behind yoga mats or personal belongings. Every Friday mats are donated to a charity or a local school or used for community kid’s classes.

Any wet clothes left behind will be placed in a plastic bag at the end of the day and tossed into the trash the following morning. Clothes will no longer be washed, dried and stored.

The temporary holding area is the Yoga Prop Room.

Please help us in keeping our studio clean, hygienic, and organized for everyone's enjoyment. - August 1, 2018
