IN-STUDIO CLASSES
Print our In-Studio Class Polices

Vaccination Required for In-Studio Classes
Students must be fully vaccinated in order to attend In-Studio classes.

Masks Required for In-Studio Classes
The CDC has updated its masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people. The new recommendation is for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. Cuyahoga County is now an area of “substantial” community transmission of Covid. Therefore all teachers and students must wear a mask for In-Studio classes.To check the community transmission rate, you can use the CDC Covid Data Tracker and enter the state and county you wish to check.

Class Reservations
To attend our In-Person classes, preregistration is required. No walk ins are permitted. If a class is full, you will be placed on a waitlist and will receive an email notification if a spot becomes available.

Class Cancellations
If unable to attend an In-Person class, you must cancel your reservation 8 hours before the class begins. No Shows and Late Cancels will have one punch charged on their card. Online classes can still be canceled up to 1 hour before the class begins.

Teaching Protocols
Hands-on adjustments will be done only with the student’s permission. Chanting will not be done.

Doors Open
Doors open 15 minutes before class starts. Students and teachers should wash their hands upon entering the studio. We recommend that you wash your hands at the end of class as well.

Personal Items
Minimize the personal items you bring into the studio. Ideally bring nothing but your keys and your props.

Physical Distance
Classes are limited to 8 students. Mat placements will be indicated by tape marks on the floor. Since everyone present must be vaccinated, distance is not required at all times, but will be maintained as much as possible as a precaution.

Props
Students are encouraged to bring their own mat, and may bring other props if they wish. Personal props should be clearly labeled. Recent data suggests that surfaces are not a likely way to pick up the virus. Soft surfaces especially do not hold the virus well. Hard props such as chairs and blocks will not be shared among students within a class, and students must sanitize these items after using them. If you use a studio mat, you must clean it after class. Students may sanitize props before class as well if they wish to do so.

Cleaning
High touch surfaces will be cleaned after every class. Signage will outline prop cleaning procedures.

Health Condition
Please do not come to the studio if you are experiencing symptoms of illness. Please do not come to the studio for 2 weeks if you have knowingly been exposed to someone diagnosed with or showing symptoms of Covid-19. Contact us and we will waive the charge to your card. If you have tested positive for Covid-19 and have attended class within the last 14 days, please contact us immediately at 216-382-0592 or info@greentarayoga.com

Promptness
Please arrive five to ten minutes before the class starts. Inform the teacher of any injuries or health issues before class begins. If you are late, sit down quietly in the entry room and wait until after the chanting of OM to enter the studio and open your mat.

Attire
Wear shorts, sweat pants or footless tights. Clothing should be comfortable and non-constricting, but not so baggy that alignment is obscured. Have bare feet and remove bulky jewelry.

Class practice

Etiquette
Please refrain from wearing strong scents. Please turn off cell phones and pagers.

Food and Water
Come to class with an empty stomach. Drink plenty of water before and after, but not during class. Water bottles should not be brought into the studio except in cases of medical necessity.

Belongings
Please wipe and remove your shoes in the hall, carry them inside and place them on the shoe rack. Valuables should be placed on the shelves in the back corner of the studio. We provide all props. If you wish to use your own mat, please label it.

Cancellations
Cancellation of In-Studio classes must be completed by 12 hours before the class begins or your pass will be charged.
