Updated March 2022
Our teachers are fully vaccinated. We follow all current CDC and PA guidelines. As of March 2022, masks are optional at the center, but as situations change, we evolve with what is needed for each class and numbers in our area at the time.
If you are not feeling well, stay home and enjoy one of our livestream or on demand classes or rest.
Safety and cleaning measures in place: We run a hepa air purifier and open the windows when possible open to allow for fresh air.
We thoroughly clean and sanitize all surfaces in between classes. We also have many beautiful plant friends in the studio to help the air quality.
Class sizes are limited to allow for ample space between students.
How can I access the center?
Do you have props available?
We strongly recommend bringing your own mat and props. We do have blocks, blankets and bolsters available if you need to borrow.
What is the temperature in the studio?
Where do I park?
Are you open to sharing the space?
Absolutely! We love to collaborate and to offer many forms of mindfulness and healing arts to our community. If you are interested in sharing space at the center – we have room for Massage Therapist/Acupuncturist/CranioSacral Therapist/Reiki providers as well as yoga and mindfulness guides. If you think you would be a good fit, email us at email@example.com
