We have reopened! Here’s what you need to know.
The studio has re-opened with a limited number of classes. We understand it is best to move slowly and mindfully as we bring in the New Normal. We will add on more classes if there is a need.
We have been busy implementing the safety measures required by the guidelines to provide a safe and supportive space for our students and our teachers.
- We have taken out all furniture and props to allow for 8 students per class.
- The studio will still be disinfected, and the floor cleaned, between classes.
- The floor is marked for physical distancing with each mat 2 meters apart.
- Please bring your own mat and props.
- The windows will be open during classes. Please bring layers/blanket to make you comfortable in case it’s a chilly day.
- We will not have use of the washrooms in the Juice Truck at this time.
- Please be responsible not to come if you are not feeling well. Do not come to the studio if you have recently travelled out of the country or have been exposed to someone with Covid-19 or been in contact with someone who has travelled.Please be patient and mindful as we adapt to the New Normal. With all of us doing our part by staying alert and responsible of maintaining physical distancing and hand washing, we can help stop the virus from spreading.
We will be livestreaming our studio classes through MINDBODY in a few weeks. These classes will require a pass to be able to participate. More information coming soon.
Online Pass Options (No Expiry Dates):
One Class: $10
10 Class Online Pass: $80
Creative Things to Use as Yoga Prop Substitutes
A stack of books wrapped in a towel may do just fine, or you could grab a shoebox and fill it up with items to make it solid. Just be sure you won’t mind if the pages of those books get a bit frayed or the items in your box get slightly crushed!
You can easily use a belt, a men’s tie, or a piece of rope as a yoga strap. Just be sure to check that the fabric or material that it’s made of is strong enough to hold your stretch.
A bolster is really just a long pillow with more stuffing than most pillows for greater support. Head to your bedroom or linen closet for substitutes for this one.
Grab a bunch of bed pillows or a stack of towels and optionally tie them up with some rope to keep them together, or use them just as they are stacked on top of each other. Bolsters are often used to support parts of the body in restorative poses, so if you can stack some soft stuff up, you’re pretty much good to go!
In all seriousness, nobody really needs a yoga-specific blanket. All you really need is any type of blanket that you’re okay with potentially getting a bit sweaty.
Yoga blankets are often rolled up to support parts of the body, used to slide the knees or feet across hard flooring, or used to keep warm during savasana. You could even use a regular towel or a bed sheet.
Enjoy your practice!
Donations for Perfect Hearts & Teachers
Although we are not charging for the online classes, we do have to pay our teachers and expenses of the studio. We are requesting donations for the classes you partake in. As mentioned above, we will extend the weekly schedule if the online classes prove to be a success and we are able to afford our expenses through these donations and hopefully upcoming government funding.
We have set up a GoFundMe account if you are interested in donating. You could do this for each class you take or donate a lump sum.
We really appreciate you and the community and can’t wait to get back to it!
