safety updates

July 3, 2020

Join us for class outside or online!​

 

We're offering classes online and outside during the month of July.

While we are included in Phase 4 or reopening, NYS has determined that gyms (as we're classified) are not yet considered safe for reopening. We're still planning to reopen with a modified schedule and updated covid-protocols beginning in August. In the meantime, please join us for a virtual class or fresh air class. Check the schedule on MindBody for more information about outdoor class offerings. All events, inside or outside, require advance reservations. This will allow us to maintain social-distancing, contact logs for tracing (if necessary) and the ability to communicate changes to classes in the event of inclement weather. 

Looking forward, the studio will run a bit differently than we're used to. Our new procedures will help to keep our team and students safe and healthy! Advance registration will be required for ALL classes. Only students who have booked a spot in advance will be allowed to enter the studio. Registered students will receive an email with information about how to enter the building, take class and exit. Here's some more of what you can expect for when the studio reopens: 

  • All individuals are required to wear masks while moving around the studio. Masks may be removed for class, but can only be removed while you are on your designated mat. If you must leave your mat to use the bathroom or exit class, you will be required to wear your mask. Teachers and staff are required to wear masks at all times, except when on their yoga mat. Teachers will remain on their mat for the duration of class. Teachers will refrain from moving around the room and using any hands-on adjustments.

  • Class sizes will be limited to ensure social distancing can be maintained. Each space will have a minimum of 6 feet between mats. Pre-registration and early cancellation policies will be enforced.

  • Props will be removed from the studio. You are welcome to bring your own blocks, blankets, straps or bolsters. We are not renting mats at this time.

  • Hand towels will be replaced with paper towels. Water glasses have been replaced with disposable cups. Please try to fill your own water bottle before coming to the studio.

  • The studio will be regularly cleaned and sanitized following the recommendations of the DOH and CDC.

  • Socialize outside. Please refrain from gathering inside of the studio before and after class. 

  • If you have been sick or exposed to other individuals who are sick, please refrain from attending class. Class cancellations must be made at least 3 hours in advance. No show's and late cancellations will be charged $15/class. 

  • If you are interested in scheduling a private / duo / small group session in the studio or virtually, please contact us for pricing and scheduling.

We'll be back soon(ish)!​

Phase 4 - We're preparing to welcome you back!

As part of the Fitness and Recreational Sports Centers industry, we are included in the Phase 4 reopening of NYS. While we don't have a specific date in place for reopening, we expect it to be in late July or August. In the meantime, we're working on our Forward Safety Plan as outlined by the NYS Department of Health to help keep the studio safe and our community healthy.

Clean & Careful - We'll have new policies to help keep our community healthy and safe.

In the next several weeks, we'll be sharing the new precautions that we're taking to help ensure that Organic can continue to be a space for health and wellness. Check back in to learn more and to prepare for returning to the studio.

In the meantime, you're invited to join our virtual studio. We have live classes everyday.

We're still offering virtual yoga classes everyday! Once you get the hang of it, taking class online can be quite convenient and comfortable! Clear out a small space (just enough for a yoga mat) and grab a pillow. Book your spot on MindBody 15+ minutes in advance of class and you'll be all set to join us via Zoom. No need to download anything - just click the link in your email at class time and you're ready!

We also have FREE pre-recorded classes posted on our website that you can watch on demand. Click the 'virtual' tab to find on demand videos. We're aiming to add a new class every week, so check back often!

OY is here for you - Please reach out if you have questions (or just to say hi!)

Have a question, concern or suggestion? Send us a text or email. We're eager to hear from you again!

 

Be well.

Bryce & the team at Organic
