 RCY OUTDOOR CLASS PROTOCOLS & REQUIREMENTS

RCY’s outdoor classes will be held daily, weather permitting, at Gardner Field in West Acton (directly across the street from Acton Coffee House and True West Brewing Co.). As of July 6th, 2020 Class size will be limited to 1 teacher and 20 students maximum.

If class needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, predicted temperatures above 85 degrees, or less than 4 people pre-registered, the call will be made by 7am on the morning of 8am & 9:30am classes, and by 3:30pm for the Wed. 5pm class.  Those who are registered will be emailed at the email address that is associated with their MindBody account.

Pre-registration and pre-payment for attendees is *REQUIRED*. Teachers will not take payments in any form on site, and students who drop-in for class when they have not pre-registered will not be permitted to attend.

Students must be pre-registered by 7am on the day of the class. If a pre-registered student does not attend class, we cannot refund their class pass as the class sizes are extremely limited. If you pre-register and cannot attend, you must cancel your reservation for the class.  The cancellation window closes 2 hours before class begins.

We ask that students perform their own health check before attending class. If you have symptoms of any type of communicable sickness, we ask that you stay home and do not attend class (i.e. fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.). We also ask that students who have been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 please refrain from coming to class until they have completed a 14-day self-quarantine.

Masks must be worn by teachers and students until all are situated on their mats (spaced at least 6 feet apart), then masks may be removed and replaced after Savasana. Students must bring their own mask as we will not be supplying them. If a student arrives and does not have one, they will not be permitted to participate.  We recommend wearing a bandana as a face covering as this will allow for greater air flow.

Students will need to agree that they are taking class at their own risk, and that RCY and its instructors cannot be held responsible if the student has difficulties practicing yoga with a mask/face covering on, or if one of our students become infected with COVID-19. Students may be asked to complete a new waiver before they attend class to address the changes brought about by COVID-19.

It is imperative that students take full responsibility for their own health, and listen to cues from their body if they need to take a rest. It may be possible for someone to get light-headed or overheated if they are engaged in a movement practice while wearing a mask. TAKE A REST IF YOUR BODY IS TELLING YOU TO! If you need to take your mask off for a brief moment to get a breath of fresh air, that is fine but you need to put your mask back on immediately. We also suggest you bring a cooling towel, spray bottle or ice pack with you if you are concerned about overheating.  The area we will be in is sunny.

If one of our students should become infected with COVID-19, we will inform all teachers and students who have taken an outdoor class at the same time as the infected person. The infected person’s identity will of course be kept confidential.

Students must bring their own masks, yoga mats, props, water, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, bug spray, and whatever else they may need during class. We will not be supplying any supplies at all. Students should be aware that there will be no public restrooms or changing rooms available for use.

Yellow flags will be placed in the lawn marking the appropriate 6 foot minimum between all in attendance. Students must be mindful to keep at least 6 feet from the teacher and other students throughout the duration of class.
