COVID-19 Statement

YOGA LAKE GENEVA has enacted specific protocols for its group yoga practices so that while participating in programs students are reasonably protected from exposure to Covid-19.  These protocols are based on the best information available to us and are subject to change as updated information becomes available. Ultimately students and teachers are responsible for their own safety.

 

YOGA LAKE GENEVA expects students and teachers to adhere to the protocol outlined below, and staff is required to remind students of the protocol as necessary.  Protocol includes but may not be limited to: remaining on your mat, keeping your props organized, arriving and leaving promptly without lingering, practicing social distancing at all times and most importantly, being respectful of others.

 

And if you have a fever, a cough or otherwise feel unwell, or if it is possible that you have been exposed to a COVID-positive person, please remain home for the recommended quarantine period. YOGA LAKE GENEVA will welcome you back when you are well.

 

We are all in different boats, but we are in the middle of the same storm.  Let our yoga community set a shining example of caring for ourselves and one another.

Some things have changed . . .

some have remained the same

Greetings, Yogis!  We are excited to share our plans around resuming in-person yoga practices, and to announce some new options and offerings to provide daily yoga options that meet you where you are, both literally and figuratively.

 

Please read this document carefully and consider what is appropriate for you.

 

Yoga Lake Geneva has been conducting in-person practices since Monday, June 15th.  We are paying close attention to guidance regarding COVID-19 and reserve the right to change or cancel in-person practices without notice.  The safety and wellness of the community is our #1 concern and our first decision criteria.

 

First, we’d like to share with you what we are doing to reduce everyone’s risk, our students and our teachers:

 

  • All practices will be held at The Ridge Resort, located at W4240 WI-50, Lake Geneva in The Fireside Room after Monday, 10/12/2020. This >2,000 square foot space will allow us to safely maintain a 10-student capacity.  Access is through the lobby of The Ridge then down the stairs (masks required in all public areas of The Ridge and are optional in The Fireside Room) or from outside doors leading to the patio.

  • Indicators will be used on the floor to help students locate their mats in a manner that maintains minimum separation. 

  • Masks are required at all times for both student and teacher.

 

Second, we’d like to share what we are asking of you (our students) who choose to attend our in-person practices.

  • You must wear a face covering at all times. The Fireside Room has two outside doors - if you need to remove your face covering during practice please step outdoors first.  Rejoin the practice when you are ready to do so.

  • You must supply your own mat and all necessary props.  Yoga Lake Geneva will no longer offer loaner mats, blocks, straps, blankets and bolsters.

  • Out of respect for your fellow students, please minimize what you bring into The Fireside Room in addition to your mat and props (and a water bottle if necessary).

  • We will once again allow DROP-IN’s and CASH PAYMENTS, however we recommend signing up in advance via the Mindbody app to guarantee your place.  Class limits will be strictly enforced – if you attempt to drop in and the class has reached its limit you will be politely turned away.  If you attempt to sign up through Mindbody for a class that has reached its limits, Mindbody will give you the option of wait-listing. Email info@yogalakegeneva.com or call 630-842-4413 if you need help setting up a Mindbody account – it is free, and all that is required is an email address and a password of your choice.

  • Because of the need to adhere strictly to class limits, if you have registered for a practice and will not be attending please login to Mindbody and remove yourself from the class. Your “pass” will be returned to your account to be used at another time.  If you register for a practice and “no show,” your pass may be applied as if you had attended the practice (if the practice is booked to capacity).

  • All students must have a signed waiver in place through Mindbody.  Please login to your account through the app or through our website link to double check.  If you come to practice without a waiver, the teacher will ask you to remain outside and login to your Mindbody account and sign the waiver before joining the practice.  

  • Practice empathy towards your fellow students and teachers who choose to approach their in-person yoga practice differently by setting up in a corner or bringing their own wipes or zipping out the door when practice ends.
