Kate + Cheryl have been working endlessly to ensure a safe way for the community to practice yoga. And although the studio is ready for its students re-entry, the state of world leaves us all feeling uncertain.
Which brings us to this : all yoga classes will be hosted outdoors at BPY.
What we have come to know + love most about our community is how devoted the students are to their BPY Family. We see you all missing each other and wanting to practice together again beyond the computer screen. We get it. We really really do.
The reality of all of this is that [to the best of our knowledge and ability] an outdoor practice is the smartest move to make. We hope you understand the weight of the decisions we are facing daily both personally + professionally, just as you are. we are grateful for your patience and understanding as things seem to be shifting moment to moment. Times have been tough, and they seem to be getting increasingly tougher. these times are not without opportunity to grow + learn as humans and in our yoga practice.
We look forward to tomorrow’s “new way” of practicing together each day and hope this will create a better sense of connection and safety for all of our members.
We need you. We love you. We miss you.
you’ll notice there are no more virtual classes on the schedule. we are moving to keep things simple when you register for a class. All classes at BPY will be held outdoors (next to Bella Cafe) if the weather is good or will be virtual if the weather isn’t cooperating.
students must register + pay in advance – no walk-ins until further notice. you’ll notice our schedule has limited classes to start. we will continue monitoring the situation closely and adding more classes in when we feel the time is right.
when you arrive at the studio, you should head down to the grassy area next to Bella Cafe and set up your mat. Your teacher will meet you there and check you into class. Make sure to set up 6 ft away from each other. A mask must be worn until you are set up on your mat as per the Governor’s mandate for masks to be worn outside unless you can insure 6 ft social distance. Please do not approach someone on their mat if they are not wearing their mask.
for any in-studio class pass and/or retail purchases, 𝗯𝗲 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗱 𝗼𝗻 𝗳𝗶𝗹𝗲 with us so we can complete a contactless transaction.
