Beth Rutty Yoga - COVID Protocol

As of September 2021, my yoga studio, Spirit Ridge, will be a double vaccination environment. I made this decision to keep the people coming here and the people in my life, safe. I will still request that you wear a mask entering the building for in-person events (classes, private sessions or workshop/trainings). If agreed upon by all, you may take your mask off while practicing. You will need to bring you own yoga mat and I will provide the props; blocks, strap or tie, and 2 blankets. Please bring a large garbage bag to house all of 'your' props for the session. Each mat will be placed 6' apart from others. 
 

These questions will be posted in the studio and sent out ahead of time:

  • Have you been double vaccinated for COVID-19?
  • Do you have a fever, new onset of cough, worsening chronic cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing?

  • Have you had any close contact with anyone with acute respiratory illness?
