Sangha Yoga Studio

Sangha has done its very best to navigate these uncertain times of global pandemic. In our continued attempt to pivot gracefully in the direction of what life is offering, we will perpetually provide our classes on Sangha Yoga YouTube channel as well as a limited studio schedule.

Sangha Love looks like this, right now…
1. Size of classes is limited to 9. Our room holds 35.
Some classes have been discontinued for now to limit traffic.
2. The floor is marked off where every mat is to be laid down to ensure roughly 8 feet apart. Look for the L shape painters tape and lay the upper right corner of your mat there.
3. Students may wear masks into the studio, but we would rather have you take them off for yoga while you are doing yoga. We have read about people hyperventilating or passing out from lack of oxygen and a build up of CO2 with a mask on while working out.
4. Once yoga is over, you can put your mask back on and walk out. Technically you can walk in, remove your shoes in the office, walk into the yoga room and put your mat down. Remove your mask. Take yoga. Put your mask back on and walk out without ever touching anything. Conversations can still happen as you sit on your mat.
5. For now, classes are limited to 2 -4 per day in order to sanitize in between and keep safe distancing.
6. Students are encouraged to pre-register/pre-pay for class prior to arriving at the studio. This minimizes contact for payment by doing it all through Venmo (https://venmo.com/SanghaYogaStudio) or Paypal (https://www.PayPal.Me/sanghayogastudio)
(but if necessary, payment can be processed on site).
If you register for the class and then cannot make it, please contact us 24 hours before class to cancel so someone else can have that spot.
8. Students must bring their own mat, blocks, belt and blanket (whatever needed). This will be all that you bring in the studio. These items simply will not be available for now…stay tuned as we learn more.  (If you want to borrow a bolster, we have pillow cases you can borrow to cover it.)
9. The community water source will not be available until further notice, please bring your own.
10. Students wash/sanitize their hands and equipment before and after class.
 There’s a hand sanitizing station on the front porch. There is also sanitizer available in the bathrooms- good ole soap and hot water while you sing a song.
12. The studio will be wiped down and floors cleaned after each class. The studio will be sanitized every night.
13. To minimize Reception Area traffic, only the front porch Sangha entrance will be used. The front door will be open before, during and after class so people do not have to touch the main doors. Fans will be turned on for good air quality, and will will ensure a comfortable temperature.
14. All socializing is to be done outside the studio on the sidewalk and not in the lobby. There is not enough room in the lobby to maintain safe distancing.

We are all in this together, and that’s the good news…we love you and welcome your constructive feedback.

Lastly, our instructors have created over 80 videos to help us stay connected to each other and our practice for those of you joining us from home! Sangha YouTube Channel has our classes available to you at any time, and if you have a Smart Tv we would love to come to your living room: Sangha Yoga Studio YouTube.

The moving arts provide some of our greatest medicine and we must keep our home practice alive, more now than ever. Yoga detoxifies, strengthens the immune system, and calms the mind. All of these create an unfavorable environment for viral replication. This community, and the world, need us all to practice. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti.

Sangha, a sanskrit word indicating spiritual community, is a sacred playground for the soul. Originally built as a place of worship in 1908, the prayers are still heard in this 1400 square foot yoga studio at the heart of the Healing Arts Centre.

The moving arts offered in Sangha include several styles of Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, Bellydance, Martial Arts, and more. Special events and guest facilitators are also offered, including Sound Healing, Singing Circles, Live music classes, Kirtan and more.

 

Sangha nourishes the eyes and feeds the soul as it is also an art gallery that regularly rotates its display of regional artists.303574_340007522759276_349215682_n

In addition to moving and visual arts, Sangha brings healing through the ears as well. Weekends are reserved for candlelight concerts for those who enjoy early acoustic music without the usual distractions often found in other venues.

This sacred space has had the honor of housing many special events from weddings to funerals, baby showers to baptisms…Rental inquiries are welcome. Please peruse this site to explore our offerings, or call today for a current schedule of events at our playground for the soul…
