SAFETY & ETIQUETTE

Your health and safety is our highest priority.  Our studios are in consistent contact with Vancouver Island Health Authority to ensure that we are meeting each requirement mandated to ensure the safety of all of our students.

VACCINE VERIFICATION

In line with BC’s recent Provincial Health order, we will be requiring proof of vaccination for all students in our indoor classes, beginning Monday, September 13th.

From September 13th – October 23rd, students will need to be partially vaccinated (one dose) to practice in class. After October 24th, you will need to be fully vaccinated (two doses).

From September 13th – October 23rd, students will need to be partially vaccinated (one dose) to practice in class. After October 24th, you will need to be fully vaccinated (two doses).

September 13th – 26th, you can use a paper copy of your vaccine record. September 27th onward, we will verify proof of vaccination through the BC Vaccine Card

From Monday September 13th -Thursday 16th between 9AM-8PM + Friday 17th between 9AM-5PM we are inviting all students to plan a drop-in visit outside of their scheduled class time. Please also plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early for class. 

MindBody has created a way to offer our students a one-time verification by checking off a box on your account. Please ensure you have filled out the ‘consent to log’ form providing YogaLab consent to do so on your personal account. 

If you are unvaccinated and have questions regarding your class card or your membership, please reach out to info@yogalabwestshore.ca

Thank you again and again for your patience and kindness and for supporting the people who own, manage, and work at this local business as we figure out how best to serve you and take care of our community during this time. We wouldn’t be here without you.

Doors open 15 minutes before class start time. We encourage you to come ready to practice.

WASH YOUR HANDS:

Please wash your hands for 20 seconds or use the hospital grade disinfectant upon arrival.

PRE-REGISTER

All of our classes require students to pre-register for classes which can be done through our Mobile App up to 7 days in advance.  Registration windows open at 6:45 AM seven days prior to the start date of the class you want to take.

PHYSICAL DISTANCING:

Please ensure that you are honouring, where ever possible, the 2 M physical distancing in common areas.

All transactions are cashless.  When you arrive, please provide your name and we will check you in manually.

ARRIVE READY TO PRACTICE

Showers and Change rooms are available. Whenever possible, we encourage you to arrive in your yoga gear and bring all of your props with you.

PROPS & ACCESSORIES

Shower towels are now available, supplied by a local linen company. Mat rentals and community use of props are still unavailable for the time being. 

WARMTH & HEAT

It’s coming back baby! 

 Classes will be offered at a range of 28-38 degrees depending on the style of class.

BREATHING IN PRACTICE

At this time we are encouraging all of our students to breathe through their nose during practice. If you feel as though you need to take a big exhale, take child’s pose so that your breath can be directed towards the floor.

AIR CIRCULATION

Fresh air is drawn into the practice room at regular intervals throughout the class. Our HVAC system pulls air in a linear direction rather than a circular distribution.
