Dear Community,

Thank You is the purest prayer I can share.
We are very thankful and grateful to you for making consistent efforts to take good care of
yourself with us at Magnolia Yoga. As you know, our individual and collective Health & Wellness
is PRICELESS. Practicing Yoga before the pandemic was smart, but practicing during the
pandemic is not only genius, it’s necessary! We really have no idea how many conditions,
ailments, arguments, mistakes, accidents and diseases we are warding off with the preventative
practices of Yoga & Meditation, which is why we are happy to announce our next steps for our
Phase 2 re-opening.

IN-STUDIO
We will offer one in-studio hot Yoga class on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 12pm,
and on Saturdays and Sundays at 10am. We hope to add classes to this abbreviated
schedule as our city heals and progresses positively through the pandemic.
Our in-studio classes will have a limit of 10 members per class available by appointment only
using our free Magnolia Yoga app. These in-studio classes will only be open to our Magnolia
Members for now. Expect to follow a simple protocol when you walk in that includes coming in
with a mask, using hand sanitizer before setting up mat and finding a clearly marked area in the
studio for you to set up your Yoga mat for class.

ONLINE AND OUTDOORS
Groupon, Intro and Single class pass holders will only be able to attend our Zoom classes
online or our classes outdoors at the park. Members will have access to all classes (in-studio,
online, and outdoors).

We are limiting our in-studio access to our loyal members as an act of gratitude for sticking with
us, because of you in many ways we are still standing. So as a BIG SIGN of APPRECIATION
we want to make our space completely available to our amazing members first! We also know
how challenging hot Yoga can be. We would like to ease our new clients into hot Yoga through
online or outdoor classes before stepping into the hot room. There are many old and now newer
protocols to follow in order to have a successful hot Yoga class and experience, so we want to
first open to those who are most familiar with us and the process.

We want to be smart and safe about how we transition everyone: new students, our loyal
members, and our dedicated teachers. As the main teacher and owner, I am committing to myself and to
my beloved community to get tested weekly. This is a commitment I have already started and its given me a lot of
reassurance to know I am negative and not spreading the disease. I would highly recommend that all of us
get tested on a regular basis if you interact even a little bit with others. We are very lucky to
have daily COVID-19 testing available for free throughout Louisiana. This is not mandated, but
as a Yoga Community Leader it is something I am urging everyone associated with Magnolia
Yoga and Health & Wellness in general to highly consider doing.

In addition we will ask everyone to sign a new waiver and follow the guidelines below:
1. We at Magnolia Yoga are very dedicated to cleanliness. These measures will only
continue and increase. Daily precautions and efforts will be made to clean & organize
the entire studio following all city and state recommendations.
2. Our new studio set up will require all of our visitors, clients and members to practice
social distancing, use hand sanitizer & wear a mask to come in & out of the studio.
3. At this time in-studio classes are for active Magnolia Yoga Members ONLY. Members
are considered those who have an annual membership and/or members who pay a
monthly membership rate. Any new clients with Singles/Intros/Groupons visit our
schedule on our free Magnolia Yoga app to join classes at the Parks or Zoom.
4. If you have any signs of sickness related to Covid-19 or any other symptoms of
illness/allergies we ask that you come back when you feel 100% better!
5. Wear a mask upon entry and exit of the studio. We do not recommend wearing a mask
while practicing but it is optional for those who would like to try.
6. To practice Yoga with us whether it be in-studio, the park or on Zoom you must sign in
online using our free Magnolia Yoga App to secure your spot. A no show policy will be
enforced which means you are charged $15, if you sign-in and either don’t show up or forget to cancel.
7. We recommend getting tested weekly/regularly.
 
8. No showers at this time, we apologize for the inconvenience.
9. Enter the Restroom/Changing room one at a time.
10. Use hand sanitizer before setting up mat in Yoga room.
11. Place Yoga mat on the marked location in the room.
12. No rentals, you must bring your own water, mat and towels.
13. For In-Studio classes students will be dismissed one at a time, by name 2-3 mins after
class is over. We want you to take a savasana.
14. Students have approximately 5-10 mins to gather belongings say namaste, goodbye and
 
be off to enjoy the bliss that is Yoga!

Our mission is to support people’s growth, healing, and empowerment through the art & science of hot yoga and community.

What's Happening at Magnolia?

Dear Community,

We are thrilled to share with you some of our latest news. After much soul searching & researching we have decided to take our physical yoga studio online and create a virtual yoga studio starting Wednesday, April 1st ! 

This big decision is an effort to support our amazing community during a very stressful & anxiety ridden time. Research now has proven stress is kryptonite to our immune system. A precious system we must keep healthy & robust during this time. I am sure you agree your health is priceless and non-negotiable?! 

 Science also shows the best way to stay healthy during this pandemic is to:

Stay Active

Stay Connected to Community

Keep a Routine

Now our loyal Magnolia Members can enjoy several LIVE online yoga classes weekly with your active membership through the free platform called Zoom!  Your membership will ensure your mental, physical, emotional & energetic health & wellness gets nurtured.  

Additionally, our online virtual yoga studio allows us to continue to pay your favorite yoga teachers. Lastly, our virtual yoga studio will help us ensure our physical doors remain open once this crisis passes.

There are a few easy steps to help you seamlessly continue your yoga practice with us.

  1. Download the free app called Zoom which can also be accessed on your laptop, desktop or ipad.  You can also go straight to the Zoom website—make sure to enable audio.
  2. Sign into the class of your choice using our branded app free to download called Magnolia Yoga— like most of you normally do. 
  3. You will then receive an email and/or a text with the unique Zoom link needed to then attend class on Zoom!   
  4. 5-10 Minutes Before Class Starts, Click Your Link, And A Zoom Dialogue Box Will Display While You Wait For Your Teacher To Start Class.
  5. Once Class Starts, Turn Your Camera On Or Off (Whatever You Prefer!)
  6. Enjoy class w/ a live & loving teacher & appreciate practicing w/ others from your yoga community!
