Four new yoga classes at the East End

We are excited to be adding 4 new yoga classes to the schedule at our East End Yoga Studio!

  1. Tuesday 9:30–10:30 AM Slow Flow with Lauren Quaife
  2. Wednesday 9:30–10:30 AM Power Vinyasa Yoga with Savannah Schenck (a new teacher!)
  3. Thursday 9:30–10:30 AM Power Vinyasa Yoga with Rachel Kulp
  4. Sunday 11:00–12:00 PM Slow Flow with Caroline Weatherford (another new teacher!)

Class Tweaks at the Highlands

  • Our Thursday 9:30 AM class with Cami will now be Slow Flow and will still be magical and blissful ✨
  • Our Sunday 9:30 AM Beginner Class will now be Renew & Release with Courtney Stine (yet another new teacher!).

But what beginner-friendly classes are available? All of them! If you can breathe, you can do yoga. Just show up and do your best. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you catch on.

Chair Yoga classes moving to Omies

We are discontinuing our chair yoga programming at 502 Power Yoga due to two key factors: 

  • Attendance has been too low post-pandemic to sustain the offering
  • Darsi, our chair yoga champion and teacher of 8 years, is taking an indefinite break from teaching to care for her family 😭💗

Fortunately, our friends at Omies, just a few doors down from us in the Douglass Loop, have the capacity to move classes to their studio at a more user-friendly time: 12:00PM!

Changes to Livestream Schedule

We know that virtual classes have been essential to so many throughout the pandemic. Being able to attend live with an instructor and other students provides accountability and structure which is essential in maintaining a disciplined practice, and the flexibility of having classes on the go has become a convenience we have come to depend on. We want to continue to support our students in their yoga practice, but we also need to do what’s best for the longevity of the business as a whole!  

Therefore, effective October 1st, we are discontinuing the “Virtual Only” classes. These are the classes our teachers have been teaching from their homes (7:15 AM Power Vinyasas and 8:00 AM meditation). The attendance has dropped significantly to the point we can no longer sustain that offering. We are NOT discontinuing all virtual classes; we will continue to Livestream the following in-studio classes:  

  • 12:15 PM Monday Power Vinyasa with Cat (45min)
  • 12:15 PM Tuesday Power Vinyasa with Stephanie (45min)
  • 7:45 PM Tuesday Renew & Release with Chloe (60min)
  • 12:15 PM Wednesday Power Vinyasa with Chloe (45min)
  • 12:15 PM Thursday Power Vinyasa with Stephanie (45min)
  • 8:00 AM Sunday Power Vinyasa with Kelli (60 min)

AND we have a HUGE library of over 250 classes in our On-Demand Library. We add fresh classes to this library about once a week. They do not live inside the Walla App; you must access them through a browser. 

Thanks for your continued support!!!

Yet another mask update

Yet another mask update

We are pleased with the downward trend of Covid cases in Jefferson county so we are downgrading our “Masks Required” policy to “Masks Encouraged” effective October 1, 2021.

Each of our studios is still operating at less than half capacity with mat spaces clearly indicated, and we continue to maintain a clean environment complete with plenty of hand sanitizer 🙂

There will be practitioners who feel more comfortable practicing in a mask for their safety or their concern for others, and our space will continue to be supportive of those who choose to mask up.

At this time, proof of vaccination will not be required and no one will inquire about your status.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Now hopefully this is the last mask update for a while…

Namaste,

Cat Crawford
Owner and CEO

To mask or not to mask.

To mask or not to mask.

That is the question. The Delta variant has put 502PY at another crossroads: How can we protect our community, stay open in-studio, AND continue to empower and inspire students? Our options seem to be limited to:

  1. Do nothing,
  2. Require masks for all, or
  3. require vaccinations for all.

I hate each of these options.

502PY was created to be a neutral, safe space, accepting of all, regardless of backstory or beliefs. But it seems no matter what option we choose, we will be polarizing our community in some regard. So what to do?

We created our core values to help us navigate challenges like this:

Integrity & Accountability: We have followed and should continue to follow CDC recommendations, even if they are not mandated. Doing nothing would be irresponsible and out of alignment with our mission.

Acceptance & Inclusivity: Requiring a proof of vaccination would automatically exclude a portion of our population (and would create an administrative headache!). Requiring masks for all evens the playing field without isolating any particular group.

Connection & Community: In order to create a safe environment for our community to gather and connect, and to put parents with small children at ease, masking up right now makes the most sense.

Therefore, requiring masks for all is a simple (albeit annoying) change that will protect all yogis. And, hopefully, it’s temporary.

Effective Wednesday, August 11th, masks will be required by ALL students and instructors, regardless of vaccination status.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding, and as always, reach out to us with any questions or concerns.

Namaste,

Cat Crawford, owner and CEO, 502 Power Yoga
