Is It Safe To Do Yoga at Hot Yoga Chelsea in NYC?
Most public health experts agree that the weight gain that many people experienced during the pandemic presents a big set of risks to human health. Just last month studios were given the go on full capacity and no mask mandate. But finding a balance between being active while being safe from COVID-19 infection has been difficult. Yoga and other fitness classes, which often result in heavy breathing, come with risks. Here’s some ways Hot Yoga Chelsea in New York City is making Hot Yoga safe for you.
We are thrilled to announce that our studio has fully reopened. We have been inspected and approved by the state of New York for cleaning and health guidelines and have gone above and beyond CDC, state, and federal cleaning protocols. The yoga room, bathrooms, and common areas are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before the start of each day and after every class using a UV Light Protexus Electrostatic Sprayer. The studio is using Medify medical grade air purifiers in the lobby, dressing rooms, and yoga room. We have also installed a new exhaust system in all restrooms.
There are hand-sanitizing stations throughout the studio. In the common areas, we are wiping down doorknobs, cubbies and lockers between classes. Upon entering the studio lobby from the elevator or stairs, all students will be required to receive a temperature check. Inside the yoga room, the mats will be distanced in accordance with NYC guidelines. Since the mask mandate was relaxed recently, masks are optional at our studio. After months of closure, shower usage has also returned this month.
Midtown Manhattan is coming back to life but the pandemic is far from over. The great news is that it’s possible to lower the exposure during group yoga and fitness classes by improving ventilation, limiting class size, wearing a mask and increasing physical distance.
