Effective November 28, in-studio classes are suspended until further notice. San Mateo County issued new guidelines. To read the order, click here.
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, shower knobs, all bathroom fixtures (e.g., sink fixtures and toilet flush push buttons in the restrooms), benches, hand weights, blocks, 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 and the mat wipes to wipe down mats after each class.
Wash hands frequently & thoroughly with warm water & soap (for at least 20 seconds).
According to 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.
Our policy is that there is NO SAVING OF SPOTS in classes for fellow students.
FIRST COME FIRST SERVED only.

In Studio Class Guidelines
Please use this link to complete our mandatory waiver form. A waiver must be completed before attending your FIRST OUTDOOR or ON-SITE CLASS and IS GOOD FOR SUBSEQUENT CLASSES. You will not be admitted to class without completing one.
Please arrive no later than 20 minutes before class tomorrow at either 6:40 am or 8:40 am. We'll join everyone in-line and maintain physical distancing at the parking lot's main entrance. A mask must be worn at all times when inside the building except during practice once you're in your assigned, individual, pod space inside Studio 1. The Hot26 60mins class will be taught by Regina. There have been a few, well thought out changes, to the usual Hot26+ routine which will be introduced to all of you. We'll also be using a new check-in process practicing safety and physical distancing.
NO SHOWERS OR LOCKERS WILL BE AVAILABLE.
A few reminders about what to bring...
A Mask. We'll be wearing our masks as we enter the building and inside at all times till 9 am when class begins.
A big bag for all your belongings is useful. We will all take our bag into the studio and leave it there throughout the class.
Mat and towel(s)
Slip-on sturdy shoes and we suggest a plastic bag to store them in, inside the big bag
Bring LOTS OF WATER With the physical distancing, no water refills during or after class.
When the final savasana is completed, exiting the class will be announced for each student one at a time. Your assigned number which corresponds to your Pod Space will be announced. All of the above items will be loaded back into your big bag before exiting the studio.
