Welcome to Yoga Toronto 196

at 745 Mount Pleasant Road

We will be slowly transitioning to in-person classes in our new shared studio space at 745 Mount Pleasant Road, Toronto, located just south of Eglinton Avenue.  The studio space is located on the second floor (Room 203), adjacent to Midtown’s Tiny Tots, a daycare and children’s activity centre.  There is elevator and stair access.

 

 

Since this is a new space for us – and the whole experience of in-person classes is going to feel new for everyone as well – we wanted to give you an overview of the space and the protocols we’re putting in place to ensure our return to class goes smoothly.

 

Before class:

  • Book your spot.

  • Ensure you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

  • Ensure you have completed the COVID-19 exposure self-assessment, with a negative response to all questions.

 

 

Getting here:

 

  • Public transit – buses on Eglinton Avenue stop one block before or after Mount Pleasant (Redpath/Falcon); Mount Pleasant buses stop at Soudan, just south of the studio.

  • Bicycle racks – several nearby.

  • Vehicle parking – two spots available in the private parking lot behind the building (marked Midtown’s Tiny Tots); there is also paid street parking and Green P lots.

  • Remove and carry your footwear, heading to your left down the hall.

  • On your first visit, you will be asked to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.

  • At every visit, you will be asked to confirm completion of, and a negative response to, a COVID-19  exposure assessment conducted within the preceding 12 hours.

  • The waiting room, coed change room and studio are at the end of the hall on the left.

  • Leave your footwear and outerwear in the waiting room. Keep your valuables with you.

  • The change room is coed, so please be discreet and patient.

  • Mats and other props are in the room just off the studio on the left as you enter.  YT196 equipment is so identified.

  • Collect a mat and other equipment and proceed to a demarcated spot in the studio.

During class:

  • You may remove your mask if you wish while you are on your mat.

  • Please bring and use a towel to cover any props that come in contact with your face.

  • Bring and use hand sanitiser as often as you wish.

  • Please note that a concurrent online class will be taking place, with limited capacity.

After class:
