COVID-19 PROTOCOLS &
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
After 7+ years of yoga, we have permanently closed our studio in Cadboro Bay Village due to restrictions related to Covid-19. Huge gratitude to our supporters over the years. We will miss you tremendously. Online classes have resumed for existing Yew Tree Yoga clients. Should you wish to attend and require further information, please contact us.
Must I pre-register for an online class?
Pre-registration is required so that a Zoom link can be sent to you. Yew Tree clients will be provided with a security passcode. We regret that classes are not open to new students at this time
How do I register for a class?
There are several options for booking a class:
Online booking is quick and easy. On the Weekly Class Schedule page, click on the green "sign up" button for the class you would like to attend. This may require a one-time sign-on to create a profile. After this, you can just click on the "sign up" button to pre-register. Click here for further details.
We get it! sometimes it's just better to speak with someone. Do not hesitate to give a call and we can get your class reserved over the phone.
The best option after 6 PM when there is no one to answer the phone! We check our email messages frequently and aspire to answer any questions in a timely fashion.
What equipment is needed for an online class?
A quiet space at least 7-8 feet long and 6 feet wide
Computer or tablet with WiFi connection. An external speaker is beneficial.
Yoga mat. A carpet might work okay but mats offer better grip. We have mats available for purchase, starting at $35
Props. Essential items include cork/foam blocks, a strap and a blanket. A bolster is great to have but a couple of folded blankets will do instead. We have a selection of yoga products for sale so check our product page.
If you need props, you can often make use of household items. Click here for ideas
Towel. Full length towels are not usually necessary. A small hand towel to wipe your brow or dry your hands is typically all that is needed.
Comfortable clothes. Layers are best. Consider a tank or tee shirt with a hoody over top. Tights are a great option. Sweats are fine but not too baggy as you will find they get in the way. Yoga is traditionally a barefoot activity but have a pair of socks for Savasana (end of class pose) if you like.
