COVID PROCESSES
& HOW TO ACCESS IN-STUDIO CLASSES

We are open for In-Studio classes in BOTH of our locations!

It is wonderful to be back in person with many of you - tears of joy are mixed with sweat!

Haven't been in yet? Read on for the awarenesses for being together:

  • Please sign up for class online in advance. Pre-registration is required.

  • Please download our Namaspa app from the Apple app store. 

  • Notice that we will show 2 classes on the Bend schedule.

    • ​"Online via Zoom" are located in your home space.

    • IN-STUDIO" classes are located in the "Bend Main Studio" & are limited to 10 students per class.

  • Redmond schedule will only have one class in "Redmond Main Studio".

    • With only 9 spots available, however, we will have the same waiting list and cancellation restrictions.

  • We have created this online document to help you check class availability.

    • We'll keep it updated each day (the date and time of the last update is listed at the top), so you can easily see if there are spots open.

    • Additionally, please know that if you are able to "sign-up" for class using our app, it means there is space available. 

  • In-studio check-in begins 15 minutes in advance of class.

    • We will ask you to sign a release and have your temperature checked. 

    • If your temperature is above 100 degrees, we will ask you wait until your temperature drops in order to take class.

    • If your temperature does not drop, you will not be able to take an in-studio class.

  • All of our teachers commit to staying home - and we will ask this of you as well - if they or you:

    • Have been around anyone else who has exhibited cold symptoms, or was known to have COVID-19 in the past two weeks

    • Have experienced any cold or COVID-19 symptoms within the past 2 weeks (especially fever, cough & loss of smell/taste)

    • Have a temperature of 100 degrees or more

    • Have traveled outside of Central Oregon or housed with someone who has in the past 2 weeks

    • We also recommend that stay home if you or someone you live with are high risk - this is for your own safety and well-being

  • Please wear a mask - we ask you wear it any time you are in the lobby, entering or leaving.

    • Please wear a mask during OMs.

    • You can take it off at your mat where 6' distancing is guaranteed and you are breathing Ujjayi - through your nose.

    • We will have masks to provide if you don't have one.

  • Please keep 6 ft distancing from other students (floor markers and mat squares have been taped to help with this).

  • Please bring ONLY what you need for practice - your mat, block, strap, towel and water bottle. There will be no cubby storage and no rentals, and we have removed all accessories from the studio, including blocks.

  • Please arrive early for class - the door will be locked at class start to allow the teacher to control the environment.

    • Doors will open 15 minutes prior to class.​

  • To allow for as many students as possible, we will be enforcing a strict cancellation policy.

    • Please cancel by 8 hours prior to allow others to have a chance to sign up.

    • You will be charged for the class if you do not cancel within 30 minutes to class start - $10 if you have an unlimited pass.

    • If you are waitlisted for class, know we will clear the waitlist no later than 30 minutes prior to class - after that time you can email us at namaspayoga@gmail.com to see if there have been no-shows.

    • You could also come to the studio - we have space in our upstairs studio that you can use to practice to the class via Zoom if you don't get into the downstairs class.

  • Practice with ujjayi breath - through the nose with your mouth closed through class. This is the breath of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Flow classes anyway, and will help reduce breath aerosol spray. Please keep big open mouth sighs or lion's breaths for your home practice. OM with your mouth closed or put your mask back on.

  • We have invested in cleaning products and processes to help sanitize our space, including:

    • Air purifiers for each studio which kill germs and viruses with ultraviolet light.

    • Floors and high touch surfaces will be cleaned before and after each class with disinfectants proven to kill COVID-19.

    • All studio classes will also be heated to 90 degrees with added humidity, an environment not conducive to the spread of COVID-19.

    • We have removed high-touch amenities such as tampons and hair ties, but if you need one of these just ask.

    • We will of course have plenty of hand sanitizer for you to use.

    • We request that you fill in the studio from the far side to the door. A shoe caddy will be provided, and exit will be out the back door(s) of each studio. 

  • If you prefer to practice at home, good news - ALL of our classes will take place through Zoom as well! Get instructions for accessing ONLINE CLASSES HERE.


Most of all, we want to express our APPRECIATION to YOU, for standing by us through our closure and re-opening. We have loved staying connected with you through Zoom, and we are committed to rejoining you in person in the safest way possible.

See you soon In-Studio or in Zoom!
