THE PYC EXPERIENCE
The PYC Experience is our promise to you that each and every time you walk into a studio you are greeted with a welcome smile and made to feel like you belong.
Online reservations through our PYC app or website will be needed to secure a mat spot (we will not be accepting walk-in visits during the first phase of opening). Cancellations must be made well in advance before the start of class (please check in with your local PYC studio for the specific hours). Because our mat spaces will be limited, there will be a full charge for missed classes.
Waitlist will be available for each class and you will be notified if a spot opens up (up to 1hr before class).
When you arrive we will greet you outside to explain the flow of the experience and update on any new health guidelines. You will be let into the studio 10 minutes before class.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Personal protective equipment will be worn by our teams before and after class. If you would like a face mask we will have disposable ones available.
We are limiting the number of yogis in classes to maintain social distance and your mat space will be clearly marked.
DISINFECTING & CLEANING
Disinfecting and cleaning will happen between every class and more frequently for high touch contact surfaces.
Physical distancing will be honoured as you enter our space and in the yoga rooms.
Amenities Available may vary by location, but showers, change rooms and cubbies will not be used in the first phase of opening. You will be guided to bring your belongings in to class with you and placed beside your mat. (Thank goodness it is flip flop season!)
Rentals of yoga mats, towels, blocks and straps will be unavailable in the first phase of opening. Some locations will have all props available for purchase.

WHAT CHANGES IS POWER YOGA CANADA MAKING TO ENSURE EACH STUDIO IS SAFE?
Since we opened our first studio 10 years ago, Power Yoga Canada has always prioritized the health and safety of our members, teachers and team members. We are aligned with the recommendations provided by public health experts and government bodies to ensure the highest levels of sanitization are met. Our goal is to meet, or exceed, the new health and safety parameters laid out by the different levels of government across the country. Our new health and safety standards will be updated regularly as we recognize that public health information and provincial orders can change quickly. We will be doing everything we can to update our standards and website as quickly as possible in response to these changes.
IS IT MANDATORY FOR MEMBERS TO WEAR A MASK AND GLOVES?
It is mandatory for all members to wear a mask until they arrive at their mat where they are socially distanced from other guests. At this point in time members are able to remove their masks. Gloves are recommended but not mandatory.
ARE YOU RESTRICTING THE NUMBER OF MEMBERS ALLOWED INTO THE STUDIO?
The number of members permitted into the studio at one time will be based on the capacity limits mandated by the Government of Ontario. These limits are calculated based on maintaining the required physical distancing for member safety.
