General FAQ

Class FAQ

We at Harvest Yoga Studio are looking forward to providing our practitioners an environment that is not only welcoming, but also safe. Throughout all of this uncertainty, we are proud to reopen with the following guidelines in place. Please know that we take the health and safety of our practitioners very seriously, and we ask that you do as well. Out of respect for your fellow yogis, please read over these guidelines before every class you take, as new information is coming out daily, and we want to ensure everyone is on the same page. Looking forward to seeing you all soon, make sure to stay safe, wash your hands, and avoid touching your face. We'll see you on your mat. Before coming to every class, please fill out this COVID Self-Assessment from the Government of Alberta


    Before coming to every class, please self-assess for any COVID-19 symptoms.


    If you have any symptoms, DO NOT come to the studio. Please get a COVID-19 test done and self-isolate until your results come back negative. If you are pre-registered for a class and have COVID-19 symptoms, please call us to cancel your class, free of charge. 


    Due to physical distancing in the Hot Room, we will have limited spaces available for every class. In line with AHS regulations, you MUST pre-register for any class you plan on attending. No walk-ins will be permitted to attend class. If you are having difficulty signing into classes online, please call the studio at 403-328-8877, or send us an email at admin@harvestyogastudio.com. Please know that we will do our best to reply to these inquiries in a timely manner, but we cannot guarantee a response any earlier than 24 hours after sending your message. We ask for your patience and understanding while we navigate all communications. 


    If you are pre-registered for a class and you cannot attend, cancellations need to happen 2-hours before the start of class, to provide enough time for someone else to sign-up and participate. Any cancellations after this 2-hour window will be subject to a drop-in charge of $22. Cancellations will not be done via email or phone. You must take yourself out of class via our website or the MindBody App in order to successfully cancel your registration. 


    If you are sick and need to cancel your reservation for class and it's after our 2-hour cancellation window, call to let us know it's due to illness. You will not be charged a cancellation fee. Please get a COVID-19 test done, and wait for the negative results before coming to the studio.


    We will open the studio to practitioners 10 minutes prior to the start of class.


    We ask that you wear a mask at the studio and maintain physical distancing at all times.


    When in the Hot Room, place your mat on one of the marked spots to maintain 3m physical distancing between your neighbours. 


    Before leaving the Hot Room, please gather your belongings, and leave in an orderly fashion, maintaining distance between you and the other people leaving the space.


    To prevent overflow of practitioners in the hallways and change rooms, we ask that you leave the studio within 15 minutes of the end of the class. This will allow us to clean all the necessary surfaces before the practitioners for the following class enter the space.


    Our change rooms and showers are open for use, but please try to arrive ready to practice, as we're asking everyone to try to reduce their use of these spaces as much as possible. Mask wearing is required while using these spaces. Please keep 6 ft distance between yourself and others. 


    When possible, please bring your own mat, yoga towel, and filled water bottle with you when you come to practice. We are not supplying any props for practice at this time, so you're welcome to bring your own blocks and straps if you have them. These are not required for the classes, but can often make your practice more comfortable. We have all of these things for purchase at the studio.


    All classes are being live-streamed via Zoom, so that anyone with an active Harvest Community Membership, Welcome Membership, or Online Membership can access the classes from home. Weekly emails are currently being sent out with links to the classes. Please know that this means when you attend a class, you may be visible on the webcam. This is done to ensure that access to our classes is as easy as possible for all practitioners.


    Any children that want to take a class will be more than welcome, as long as they and their parents understand the studio policies. Please know that, due to the reduced number of practitioners in the Hot Room, the cost for anyone to take the class is that of an adult. For the time being, kids pricing will not be available.


    Due to the safety of everyone in the space, we are asking that parents who used to bring their kids to wait in the reception area no longer do so.


    Classes range from 60 minutes to 90 minutes. Class length is indicated on our schedule.


    Classes begin at the indicated start time. You are not guaranteed entry into the class if you arrive late. 


    All classes are considered beginner and everyone is welcome.


    Our classes range from non-heated to warm to hot. Please see our different class descriptions to learn more about the variety of styles and heats we offer at Harvest, or call/email us at the studio with any questions you may have.


    Yoga is about stretching and strengthening the muscles, as well as massaging and stimulating all the organs, glands, and systems of your body and restoring them to healthy working order, just as nature intended.


    Try to stay in the room once the class has begun. There are multiple reasons for this but the main one is so that the teacher can take care of you. No matter what happens in the class, the teacher is there to get you through it.


    The only items you need in the room are your yoga mat, towel, water, and an open mind.


    Hatha yoga is considered a wide eyed silent moving meditation. We ask that once in the Hot Room, it is a silent time for people to reconnect with themselves and any conversations should be left outside the room, where they are actively encouraged.
