Updates Sellwood Yoga
Updates July 24, 2020:
Thanks to so many of you who have been exemplary in wearing your masks and following our reopening guidelines (listed towards the bottom of this page). We have updated a few things regarding taking classes at the studio:
- Oregon’s new face covering guidelines require anyone “exercising indoors” to wear a face mask and/or shield. We are requiring that anyone who takes a class at Sellwood Yoga (whether inside or on our outdoor deck) to wear face covering. Thanks for keeping each other safe.
- The studio bathroom is now open however we prefer that you come with an empty bladder and use the studio bathroom sparingly.
- For classes at the studio we will have the front door open, the back doors open and the doors between the reception area and practice space open. You need to be in the studio at least 5 minutes before a class starts. Please do not enter the studio if you see a sign at the entrance that says that a class is in session. Due to physical distancing requirements and in order to minimize disruptions we need everyone to be in their practice space at least 5 minutes prior to the start time.
FYI: If you use the Mindbody app to book Sellwood Yoga classes please note that there are intermittent problems with the app. Some people do not see any classes listed while others see only a partial list of classes. The fix that works for most (but not all) is to completely exit out of the app and then back in again. Also make sure you have the latest version of the app. You might also have to delete the app entirely and reinstall it. This is a Mindbody problem that is impacting Sellwood Yoga and some other studios.
Updated July 2, 2020:
To our wonderful and supportive community:
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to our staff, our instructors, our families and especially to you: our loving community of fellow yoga practitioners. We are humbled by the outpouring of support from each of you, as well as all your good wishes and encouragement to rally together.
We will be reopening the studio on Friday, July 10 for our first in studio class since March 16. Important information about in studio classes is below, please read on. There will also be a new waiver that everyone who attends a class at the studio will need to fill out and a Code of Conduct to follow.
As we continue into 2020 and look ahead to 2021, current plan is to maintain the new status quo with both In Studio Live classes and Live Stream classes. Information about new protocols and policies will be posted on this website and will be updated as necessary. We hope that you are all healthy and stay healthy.
We will be reopening for a limited number of in studio classes. We will continue to offer live stream classes. In fact, most of our in studio classes will also be live streamed. Currently, we can fit 8 physically distanced mats inside and 4 outside (on our newly created yoga deck). Sadly, we had to say goodbye to our Align Fitness location we hope to bring it back at a new space in the future.
The schedule of all of our classes (in studio as well as live stream) is available here and also viewable on the Mindbody app. You need to preregister for all classes. There are Zoom “meeting” links associated with each live stream class and limited numbers of spots for in studio classes.
We also have a collection of recorded live stream classes. You need to have a membership (monthly or weekly) and password (changes each Monday) to access those classes. Email us to learn more.
Besides the information below, please also check out our “FAQ’s about Live Stream Classes” as well as our “Guide to using Zoom for Sellwood Yoga Live Stream Classes”.
