Update October 19, 2020:
We are open for in-studio classes, outdoor classes, and online classes and we are thrilled to warmly welcome you to our studio!
Per the Arizona State Guidelines, here is what you need to be aware of when you attend a class at Surya:
*Pre-Registration is required for all In-Studio and Breezeway classes and Masks are required for the entirety of your time IN the studio. Masks are not required when you practice in the Outdoor Breezeway.
*Classes are designated on MindBody as “IN-STUDIO,” “In the Breezeway,” or “Online Class” so that you are clear on the format/location of each class.
*Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your class. Your temperature will be taken when you enter the studio.
*We have room for 10 students in each IN-STUDIO class and 18 students in our outdoor Breezeway. Because of our limited capacity, a fee of $18 will be assessed if you do not cancel a reservation at least 3 hours prior to the class time.
*Many of our In-Studio classes will be recorded for the use of our Online classes. You will not be “featured” on the video but you could potentially be “seen” in the video. Every student will need to sign both a Video Release form and a Covid-19 waiver. Clean pens will be available or you can download the forms from the bottom of this email, print them, and bring them with you to the studio.
*Community Props will not be available for use at this time. Please bring your own props to class– including any blankets, pillows, bolsters, blocks, towels, and straps that you need for your practice. If you do not have props and wish to rent them from Surya Yoga, please email email@example.com
*Just as we did when we opened briefly in June, we have an in-depth cleaning process between each class. Hand sanitizer is available near the cubbies/retail area and on the props table.
*If you are feeling even slightly unwell, PLEASE stay home until you feel 100%.
As always your feedback is extremely valued.
Surya Yoga needs your participation in the studio, in the breezeway, and/or online in order to make it through this challenging time. We appreciate your patience as we re-build and we are incredibly grateful for your support

You will receive an email with a link and you will have 48 hours to take the class at any time you choose. YOU CAN TAKE THE CLASS AT ANY TIME YOU WANT WITHIN 48 HOURS OF RECEIVING THE LINK.

To do our best to keep everyone safe and observe social distancing, we’ve altered our class attendance procedures for the foreseeable future.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
This is a list of some of the safety procedures we are putting into place:
- sanitization of the floor, surfaces, and cubbies between every class
- temperature monitoring of every person upon entering the studio
- hand’s free class check-in and hand’s free credit card transactions–we ask that every student keep a credit card securely stored on file. cash payments for retail boutique items will still be accepted if that is your desired form of payment
- designated mat spots and strategic mapping for maximum space between each person–studio floor will be marked with tape, and the bottom of your mat will be lined up with the bottom of the tape.
- limited class sizes and limited schedule
- online classes still offered daily
- required pre-registration for classes
- hand sanitizer available throughout studio including a requirement to sanitize hands before touching retail items
- more time between each class to allow for students to enter and exit with social distance, and for proper sanitization of the studio
- the discontinuation of community props usage–please contact us if you would like to rent props by the month or please bring your own mat, blocks, blankets, bolsters/pillows, straps
- a sincere and important understanding that we are all in this together–if you are feeling even slightly unwell, we ask that you please stay home until you feel 100%
Additional Policies and Information for the Foreseeable Future:
- Because class size is limited, online pre-registration is required. If you need assistance setting up a Mindbody Account and learning about class payment and registration, please call Mindbody Customer Support at 1-877-755-4279.
- Should you no-show for a class in which you’ve reserved a space, or if you cancel within three hours of the class start time, you will be charged our current drop-in rate of $18, regardless of your class payment option on file. We truly look forward to a time when this policy can cease! For now as we work together to bring yoga back into the community, we thank you for respecting everyone’s need to practice by only reserving the classes you will attend.
- Please consider arriving ten to fifteen minutes prior to the class start time to facilitate social distancing efforts and reduce congestion in the lobby.
- Many of our In-Studio classes will also be recorded in order to offer online classes to those who are more comfortable practicing from home. Any student practicing in the studio will need to sign a Video Release Form and a COVID-19 waiver.
- Masks are required for the entire duration of your time in the studio. Masks are not required at our Outdoor Breezeway classes.
