Our mission at SyteraYoga is to help you realize greater health and well-being. So, naturally, we make every effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. We follow the regulations and best practices outlined in the State of Virginia’s Safer at Home: Phase Three Fitness and Exercise Facilities guidelines. Those practices include:
Students and teachers are not permitted to enter the building or the SyteraYoga studio if you meet any of the following conditions:
You are currently experiencing a fever (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher) or a sense of having a fever.
You have a new cough, new shortness of breath, new chills, new sore throat, or new muscle aches — any of which cannot be attributed to another health condition.
You have been exposed in the last two weeks to someone with COVID-19, or you have been exposed in the past two weeks to large crowds.
Upon entering the studio, you will be asked to sign a statement confirming that you do not meet any of the conditions above. And the teacher will use a no-contact thermometer to take your temperature.
Masks are required when you are in the building, in the studio, and at all times off the yoga mat. However, you can decide whether or not to wear a mask while on your mat during class. If you leave you mat at any time, please put your mask back on.
Capacity in the McLean studio is limited to six students and one teacher, and capacity in the Vienna studio is limited to 11 students and one teacher, so that we can maintain at least 10 feet of distance between all individuals.
To meet social distancing requirements, the studio floor is marked with designated spots to place your yoga mat.
Bring your own yoga mat and props, as these items will not be provided.
There is a restroom down the hall from SyteraYoga where teachers and students can wash their hands with soap and water. The building only allows one person at a time inside each bathroom.
SyteraYoga practices routine cleaning and disinfection of all high-contact areas and hard surfaces inside the studio.
We provide a hand-sanitizing station in the reception area, using sanitizers containing at least 60% alcohol.
Space in in-person classes is very limited. You must pre-register online for all yoga classes.
Please show up to class at least 5 minutes early, and do not show up late. The teacher will begin teaching class on time and, therefore, will not be available to check you into class.
