Dear PYC Members and Friends,
UPDATE: With the latest restrictions we hope/plan/expect to reopen on Monday, January 18th, 2021. Start booking your classes now! We can’t wait to see you all on your mats.
RESTRICTIONS (Dec 7th, 2020)
The new government restrictions mean that we must close the studio for all classes from Wednesday, December 9th, 2020, until January 2nd, 2021.
Memberships: All memberships and payments will be put on hold during this time. If you are a clip-card holder we will extend your pass so you can use it when we reopen. No one will lose any days of their passes. If you have any questions please email us email@example.com
Online Yoga: We will provide our online videos as a free service for all members during this time. Get in touch if you need the password.
Once we reopen the following restrictions will still apply until Feb 28th, 2021:
Class Sizes: 10 people max in each class so 9 students plus 1 teacher. This is starting tomorrow, Monday, the 26th of October and for the next four weeks. There are already a few classes that are well over this limit. If you have a booking, please be advised that it will be cancelled at 10pm tonight, if you are booked for one of the classes that exceed the size limit. Check your bookings to make sure (or email me if you’re unsure). You will then have to rebook your spot, and it will be a first come first serve basis. So be ready at the computer at 10pm!
Waiting Lists: Because our classes will be shrunk to half capacity, there will inevitably be some waiting lists. We sincerely apologise and really wish things could be different. I hope you can bear with us during this time. Therefore, please do not book a class unless you are absolutely sure you intend to take that spot.
Class Booking: Max 4 classes/week for Power Members. Max 3 classes/week for all other pricing options. Max 1 class/day. We want to give everyone a chance to come to yoga.
Cancellation Fees: We will have to increase the fee for no shows to ensure everyone has a chance to come to yoga. Fees for no shows will be 60kr. The fee for late cancels (within 3 hours before class starts) will be 50kr. People on the waiting lists are automatically moved into the class up to 3 hours before class starts. Keep your eyes peeled on your emails and your booking, especially if you are number 1 to 5 on the waiting list! You can see which number you are in the Mindbody app.
Masks: As of Thursday, October 29th, everyone has to wear a mask as they enter and leave the studio. You do not have to wear them anywhere else in the studio. So this means you can take them off in the changing room and you can leave them in there until you are ready to leave. Masks are NOT required to and from the yoga room, and they are NOT required in the yoga room either.
Online Yoga: We are still streaming our classes LIVE for all of you, who can’t make it to the class. It’s free for all Power Members, and otherwise you can get our Online Membership for 99kr/month. Let me know if you need the password.
Get in touch if you have any questions.
In all of this, at least we have our yoga. I look forward to seeing you all on your mats.
Your regular membership will automatically be reactivated, so you don’t need to do anything.
We’ve had to change things around a bit to fit the rules and guidelines for the reopening of yoga studios and indoor fitness activities, as stipulated by the Danish Government. Please read this through carefully.
Let us know if you have any questions at all.
Students must bring their own mats (*Please read notes below about the mats we have for sale and mat storage).
Any clothes/towels/water bottles left behind will be thrown away at the end of the day and cannot be stored at the studio.
Spritz your hands off BEFORE you enter the studio and wash your hands often
If possible, please change into your yoga clothes BEFORE you come to the studio to avoid any congestion in the changing room.
Max 5 people can be in the changing room at one time
2 meters between mats – there will be stickers on the floor to show you where to put your mat
Kitchen will have disposable cups for tea and water etc. This will lead to more waste than we like, so please bring your own water bottle
Max 1 person in the kitchen at a time
Only the instructor can use the iPad – so please do not check yourselves in
Change and shower at home after class where possible!
Instructors will unfortunately not be able to do any hands-on assisting at the moment, unless absolutely necessary
Breathe through your nose! This is the perfect opportunity to really practice this amazing breath work we do in yoga – keep your mouth closed throughout the whole class and only use nose breathing. If you at any point during the class can’t breathe through your nose, take a break! Child’s Pose is always there for you.
Finally: Do not come to the studio if you feel any sign of illness, sniffles, fever, cough etc.
We are strongest together. Help us create a clean and healthy environment. Where possible, help us to spritz off before or after you touch something, and use your elbow or shirt sleeve to open/close doors.
Other important info:
Online yoga will also continue. All PYC Members will have free access to the online videos, and otherwise it is the usual 99kr/month.
Props: No using Blocks/Bolsters/Blankets etc – You must bring your own equipment to the studio if you want to use it.
Yin: We will cue the poses without any props, but it’s always good to bring a blanket with you for extra support in some postures.
Mat Storage: We only have limited space for mat storage, so it is first come, first served. It costs 50kr/month to store mats. You will receive a tag to hang on your mat with your name. Any mats without tags will be thrown away. So please come and collect your mat, if you do not wish to store it.
*MATS FOR SALE: We have brand-new awesome mats from Moonchild for sale at the studio. They are fantastic eco quality, they look good, and most importantly – they are completely non-slip! They are also light-weight and can easily fit on your bike rack. Price: 640kr. We can also sell props if there is a demand.
It’s been a long year so far and an unexpected ride into the unknown, but at least we can be on our mats. No matter what the universe throws at us, we still have our yoga.
We can’t wait to see you all!!!
