Welcome Back to Whitespace Studios
We’re so happy to welcome you back in our studio! We don’t just have a studio full of clients… We have a studio full of friends. We know your birthday (and love to celebrate it), your story and why you show up each and every day to be your best. We know you.
And, when we sat down and wrote our plan for reopening we did this with you in mind. That’s what friends do.
Over the coming weeks we’ll be updating you on our plans for re-opening and welcoming you back home. The most important thing right now is:
Your Safety. Your Health. Your Future.
There have been a few changes since you’ve been in last, all designed to keep you, our team and our greater community safe, sound and healthy.
At a (social) distance
We’ll be saying hello from 2m+ away and maintaining social distancing with contactless check-in. While we can’t hang together inside the studio, our outdoor space is the perfect place to commune.
Clean as a whistle
We’ve always been known as the cleanest studio in town, but now we’ve stepped up our game (and our cleaning supplies). We’re constantly sanitising our busiest spots and making sure that your space is freshly disinfected and cleaned before you walk in the door.
Safe and sound
Everyone will wash or sanitise their hands on arrival. You don’t have to wear a mask but you’re welcome to this if it makes you feel more comfortable. We may not be able to see your smile, but trust me, we’re know you’re happy to be back.
Perfectly laid out space
We’re limiting the number of clients in each studio – going over and above the government’s advice. This means there will be a space ready and waiting for you with zero concerns about being on top of your neighbour.
We’ve always taken cleanliness seriously, but now we’re even more focused on it. Here’s what you can expect to happen behind the scenes at our studio:
We’re following the government guidelines and using disinfectant thats proven to kill viruses such as Covid-19.
Please come ready for class
Our changing area will be closed to reduce contact, so come dressed ready to practice. Only bring what you need for class and keep anything else at home or locked safely in boot of your car.
High touch areas disinfected
Throughout the day we’re sanitising high touch areas such as light switches, door handles and knobs, bathrooms, rails and more. Our staff has gone through an intensive training to ensure they know exactly what to clean and how to do it.
Disinfected between sessions
We’re making space for cleaning between sessions to ensure that we have time to properly sanitise and disinfect so that it’s ready for you. We’ll be doing top to bottom studio cleans daily on top of this so that every nook and cranny is spotless.
Staff health checkin
We’re checking every team member’s temperature before their shift begins. If it’s elevated, they’ll be heading home and we’ll be following our protocols to ensure your session happens as planned.
Client health checkin
We’re asking all clients to self monitor for symptoms. If you’re not feeling well, don’t worry. Just let us know and we’ll cancel your session on the house.
If you’ve been sick, please wait 72 hours after you’ve stopped running a fever without the use of fever reducing medicine before coming back to the studio.
Bookings and cancellations
Our spots are limited as we have lots of clients ready to come to class. Unless you’re sick, please cancel or reschedule 24 hours in advance to make sure your spot can be offered to someone else.
Contactless check in
We’ll be providing checkin directions that are “no touch”. Our staff is limited so this process will likely look different than usual, but we’ll make sure all are accounted for.
Mind your step
We’ve provided marked spots in the studio so you’ll know where to stand socially distanced while you’re waiting your turn.
Perfectly laid out space
We’re limiting the number of clients in the studio – going over and above government guidance. This means there will be a space ready and waiting for you with zero concerns about being on top of your neighbour.
No studio mats or props available
We’ve eliminated studio mats and props for rent or borrow. We have mats and props available for purchase in the studio or you can bring some from home.
Hands to yourself
There will be no hands on adjustments as we stay a loving 2m+ apart from our clients.
Be on time
Our doors will be closed when a session starts. Please be on time to avoid missing out.
Practices that nourish you
Our classes will nurture you in the safest way, with no more than a moderate tempo and gentle breathing to help you feel calm, balanced and nourished.
Thank you for bearing with us. We know change can be difficult and unsettling, but we’ve got everything covered for you. Let’s support each other as we travel towards our ‘new norm’ together.
If you have any questions you’d like to chat through with us before coming along to class, do just drop us a line and we’d be happy to help.
Our next email will tell you more about our opening date, timetable and pricing structure. We really look forward to see you again.
