COVID Safety Protocols

IN-STUDIO SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Citizen Yoga is operating in accordance with CDC, state, and local guidelines. To ensure the safest experience for students, teachers, and staff, we have implemented the following in-studio safety precautions.

Michigan Studios: To ensure that Citizen Yoga remains a judgement-free space for our community, masks are required for everyone in common areas of the Royal Oak, Bloomfield, and Detroit studios.

Cleveland Studio: According to the State of Ohio guidelines, teachers, staff, and students who are fully vaccinated have the option to not wear a mask inside Citizen Yoga Cleveland. If you feel more comfortable, you may continue to wear your mask inside the studio.

Students have the option to not wear a mask inside the studio. Proof of vaccination is based on the honor system. Students may continue to wear a mask regardless of vaccination record depending on comfort level.

Michigan Studios: According to the State of Michigan guidelines, students at Bloomfield, Detroit, and Royal Oak who are not vaccinated or have not reached 2 weeks after their last shot must continue to wear a mask covering the nose and mouth at all times, including while practicing. We recommend wearing either a disposable medical mask or a fitness-dedicated mask for use during practice. Cotton masks are not recommended. Ask an EM at the front desk for a medical mask if you need one!

Cleveland Studio: According to the State of Ohio guidelines, students at Citizen Yoga Cleveland are kindly asked to continue wearing a mask in the lobby, common areas, and on their mats.

Michigan Studios: All Citizen teachers and staff at Royal Oak, Bloomfield, and Detroit will continue to wear masks in-studio, and all other COVID-19 safety protocols will continue.

Cleveland Studio: Fully vaccinated teachers and staff at Citizen Yoga Cleveland are not required to wear a mask in-studio, but may do so depending on comfort levels.

Michigan Studios: When you enter the lobby, the Experience Manager will sign you in electronically (you may need to remind them your name – masks can make it tricky to identify students!). All students and teachers will have their temperature taken by an Experience Manager when they enter the lobby. You’ll be asked to review 4 printed COVID symptom-related questions. If your temperature is below 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit and your answer is “no” to the wellness check questions, come on in! If your temperature is above 99.5 degrees or your answer is “yes” to any of the wellness check question and you haven’t received a negative COVID test, an EM will help you book a future class.

Cleveland Studio: Per state guidelines, students and teachers are no longer required to complete temperature and well-being checks when entering the studio.

Following state guidelines as of June 2, 2021, the in-studio class capacity is increasing at all 4 Citizen studio to 50%. Each location’s current in-studio class capacity is provided below:

Bloomfield: 27
Cleveland: 30
Detroit: 33
Royal Oak: 27

We require in-studio classes to be cancelled in advance of the class start time to avoid the $10 Late Cancel/No Show Fee. Students practicing at Bloomfield, Detroit, and Royal Oak must cancel 6 hours prior to the class start time. Cleveland students must cancel 2 hours prior to the class start time. To avoid this fee, cancel your registration using the MindBody app or call or text the studio prior to class.

Mats, blocks, straps, and yoga blankets can be purchased for personal use in-studio or on our online store.

Rental mats are available for $2. Students may use the studio’s blocks, straps, and blankets at no charge. All borrowed mats and props will be thoroughly sanitized after each use.

Michigan Studios: Showers, bathrooms, changing rooms, and cubbies are available. Showers are thoroughly disinfected after each use, and bathrooms, changing rooms, and cubbies are thoroughly disinfected between classes.

Cleveland Studio: Bathrooms, changing rooms, and cubbies are available. Common areas are thoroughly disinfected between classes.

All cubbies, bathrooms, and common areas will be thoroughly sanitized before, during, and after class. Doors leading into the yoga studio will be left open before and after class to eliminate additional touch points and increase air flow. The studio floor will be mopped after every class.

We are so grateful to be able to practice in person with you. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any feedback, suggestions, or questions. If you aren’t comfortable practicing in-studio for any reason, check out our online schedule!

Outdoor Class Precautions

Citizen Yoga is operating in accordance with CDC, state, and local guidelines. To ensure the safest experience for students, teachers, and staff, we have implemented the following safety precautions for outdoor yoga.

As the weather warms up in the spring and summer, some in-studio classes may be moved outdoors when the temperature is above 55 degrees. 

Since class capacity is limited, pre-registration for outdoor classes is highly recommended to ensure there’s a spot for you. You can pre-register for class online, using the MindBody app, or by calling or texting your studio to purchase a drop-in, class pass, or monthly membership. Class purchases can be applied to in-studio, online live (Zoom), and outdoor classes at any Citizen Yoga location, unless otherwise stated. A waitlist is automatically generated if a class is full; you will be notified if a spot becomes available.

You can always call or text your studio for additional assistance from an Experience Manager:

Bloomfield: 248-480-4683
Cleveland: 216-415-6050
Detroit: 313-502-5450
Royal Oak: Call 248-26-2160 or text 248-607-6761

Following state guidelines, masks are not required when students are on their mats in outdoor classes.

Mats will be spaced out 6 feet apart for outdoor classes. Outdoor classes will take place in the following locations:

Bloomfield: Studio rooftop
Cleveland: The lawn across from the studio or the sidewalk next to the studio
Detroit: The sidewalk outside of the studio
Royal Oak: 5th Street Breezeway next to the studio

For the full experience of a yoga class, we encourage you to bring your own mat and props or purchase them in our studio or online store.

Due to our limited in-studio capacity as a result of COVID, we require outdoor class registrations to be cancelled 2 hours in advance of the class start time to avoid the $10 Late Cancel/No Show Fee. Your passes will still be available for use. To avoid this fee, cancel your registration using the MindBody app or call or text the studio prior to class.

We do not enforce a cancellation policy for online classes. The Experience Managers at the front desk will early cancel your reservation for these classes when they notice that you are not present. You will not be charged a fee and your class passes will not be affected. 

Feel free call or text your studio for additional assistance from an Experience Manager:

Bloomfield: 248-480-4683
Cleveland: 216-415-6050
Detroit: 313-502-5450
Royal Oak: Call 248-26-2160 or text 248-607-6761

Our team closely monitors the weather of each Citizen Yoga studio location. If the weather calls for rain or temperatures below 55 degrees, the outdoor class will be relocated.

The decision to move a class from outdoor to in-studio will be made approximately 2-4 hours before the class begins. Once the decision is made to move a class inside, you’ll be contacted via email or text. Students will be automatically enrolled into classes based on the order of sign-up. To accommodate limited class capacities indoors, an online class will also be created so you don’t have to miss class due to the weather.

Since class capacity is limited, pre-registration for outdoor classes is highly recommended to ensure there’s a spot for you. For additional assistance, feel free to call our studios:

Bloomfield: 248-480-4683
Cleveland: 216-415-6050
Detroit: 313-502-5450
