Alive Mindbody COVID-19 Studio Response & Measures

 

As we gear up to get back at it, we’ve added some extra procedures and expectations for our guests to ensure utmost safety as well as flow, efficiency and ease for all. Guidelines for June will remain prudent as we uphold tighter restrictions with the goal to loosen as the situation evolves and we can be assured of safety and minimal contamination. We understand this might not be everyone’s cup of tea to work out and engage in the space under these tightened guidelines and we honour your choice. Please be thoughtful to your individual risk level and honestly identify with your capacity to adhere to all following guidelines. If you feel it’s not quite your time to grace us with your face, please continue to enjoy the plethora of virtual classes available around the clock!

 

As of June 01, we will be inviting guests into our filming classes for combo in-person/filming classes. The camera will focus only on the Instructor during classes. Guests may be seen through the reflection in the mirror.  Workout spots WILL be indicated if you might be seen in the mirror reflection, as well as spaces with no reflection at all during our virtual replays. By attending class, you agree to provide Alive Mindbody sole rights to any videos, photos and image capture, and to release any ownership rights solely to Alive Mindbody. 

 

We thank you for thoroughly reading the below guidelines for operation and can’t wait to see you in person at the studio!
