The health and well-being of our EPIC members and staff is our top priority and has guided our decisions during this unprecedented time, including the preparation of our studio for a safe and responsible re-opening. As part of our comprehensive plan, we are evaluating our City/State’s situation to determine when it is best to reopen. We will provide you with more information as soon as that timeline is confirmed.

 

For now, we want to introduce The EPIC Yoga Safe Studio Standards,

our answer to the challenge of creating the safest environment for our EPIC community. 

Some of the measures below are temporary and others will be permanent.

Our team will receive extensive training on the new processes and protocols with ongoing inspections.

During the initial reopening period the following will be unusable: Cubbies, Om School and select props.

SOCIAL(LY) DISTANCING- We can still be social! Just namastay 6 feet away.

  • RESERVE YOUR CLASS in advance on the mind body app or EPIC Yoga website, as we are limiting studio and class capacity.  The schedule will be changing and evolving as things continue to move forward. 

  • CANCELLED CLASS POLICY: To open up space for your fellow yogis, we require that you cancel 2 hours or more before class starts, no exceptions. A $15 late cancel / no show fee will be charged to your credit card on file. Reservations made within 2 hours of the scheduled start of class cannot be cancelled without incurring a late cancel/no show fee. 

  • LIMIT YOUR TIME IN THE STUDIO to 10-15 min before/after class. Doors will be locked outside of that time.

  • USE MAT MARKERS provided and measured out to meet CDC requirements and to give your fellow yogis space in the temporarily expanded studio area. 

  • ENTER THE BUILDING THROUGH THE BACK DOOR and follow the floor decals from the back entrance through the lobby-turned temporary extended practice space/original studio space. 

  • THE TEACHER WILL escort you to your spot, which is designed to keep you and other yogis as safe as possible

  • EXIT THROUGH THE FRONT DOORS closest to El Camino Real (what would normally be the main entrance at the front of the building.)

  • LIMIT PERSONAL BELONGINGS please bring only what you need, ie: mat, water, keys, form of payment. All personal items will be stored near your own mat.

WE BE CONTACT FREE- Sorry for your hug addiction… (for now.)

  • BRING YOUR OWN MAT AND PROPS, blocks will be available for yin/restorative classes only at this time. A bin will be provided for you to return used blocks to upon exiting and will be properly sanitized after class. Blocks will also be available for purchase as well. Mat rentals will not be available until further notice.

  • WATER will be available for purchase but we recommend bringing your own.

  • CHECK IN using your EPIC Yoga scan card. If you do not have one, we will provide you with a new one. CLICK HERE and let us know if you do not have one so that we can create a new one for you to be ready prior to your first visit.

  • SELF SWIPE CC payment available as needed- No cash transactions are allowed at this time.

  • TEACHERS WILL ONLY USE VERBAL ASSISTS  in class- no hands on adjustments are allowed at this time.

  • OUR RETAIL IS AVAILABLE but can’t be tried on at this time. All sales are final. 

  • TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER We’re encouraging yogis and staff to limit person-to-person contact, including hugs, high fives, fist bumps, etc. Community and BIG love is deep in our EPIC Yoga DNA—but for now, we want to ensure that we take care of our EPIC Family.

CLEAN FREAKS + GEEKS

In addition to our existing continuous cleaning process, we have added a rigorous, deep-cleaning and disinfecting process, where we will stringently sanitize all studio surfaces with hospital grade EPA approved disinfectants. 

 

  • FANCY NEW ELECTROSTATIC sprayers will be deployed to efficiently clean and disinfect before and after every class efficiently attacking microbes, providing 3x more coverage in the same amount of time than traditional efforts. This equipment will also be used to fully disinfect all practice spaces and studio props. 

  • WASH YO HANDS! And utilize provided disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer as necessary.

  • FACE MASKS: Students may wear face masks at their personal discretion, teachers will not be wearing them while teaching unless they prefer to do so. 

CHECK IN WITH YOURSELF

  • IF YOU AREN’T FEELING WELL, have a cough, fever or symptoms of COVID-19, please don’t attend class for your wellbeing and that of your teachers and fellow EPIC yogis.

  • IF YOU HAVE TESTED POSITIVE for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has, we ask that you not come to the studio for 14 days or until you’ve tested negative. 

  • WE WILL REQUIRE daily temp and self-health checks for all staff members.  Per CDC Guidelines, individuals with a body temperature greater than 100.4 will be not permitted entry into the studio. 

COMMUNICATION 

In the event there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 at our studio, notification will be provided via email. Members will be requested to contact and notify the studio staff if they experience or test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of their last studio visit. 

The EPIC Yoga Safe Studio Standard will be updated as we adapt and evaluate existing and new protocols. We will be in touch VERY soon with more information regarding the reopening date and additional steps to prepare you for your return. 

It might seem overwhelming, we feel it too. But trust us: As soon as that first song drops and you find yourself in down dog, moving, flowing, giving, receiving… you’ll find yourself right back in that warm familiar place you know, cherish and love. The sanctuary you have been needing now more than ever is even safer now—and we can’t wait to see you soon!
