COVID-19

Metta is Back!

We are excited to re-open our community with some new ways of practicing together. 

Thank you in advance for your patience while we navigate through re-opening – we’ve never re-opened after a pandemic before! We have a new schedule to incorporate enough time to sanitize between classes and new procures for the studio. Please take the time to review and understand the details below to ensure the health, happiness and safety of our community.

Mandatory Masks at Metta

As Covid cases continue to climb in Edmonton, along with the recent bylaw of mandatory masks in indoor public places, we have made the decision to act proactively and enforce mandatory masks inside the studio (not the hot room).

It’s important to do our part to ensure the health, safety and comfort of our community, and most importantly to keep the studio open for you!

Effective immediately, all students will be required to wear a mask when entering the studio, checking in for class, if using the changerooms or purchasing retail, and when entering the hot room. Once you are in the hot room and on your yoga mat, you can remove your mask and place it beside you while you practice. Once class is complete, before getting up and gathering your items, please put your mask back on then exit the space.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding with these new processes and procedures we have in place to keep the studio open and everyone as safe as we can!
