Candlestick Pilates Reopening Safety Guidelines

Forms: In addition to our standard liability waiver, you must complete a one-time
COVID waiver (click to complete ahead of time).

If you are vaccinated and would like to workout without a mask, please email a photo of your vaccine card at least 24 hours before your appointment and bring your smartphone to scan the QR code of the digital vaccine acknowledgment on our door.

You will be offered to purchase a $5 Candlestick Covid Safety Bag at your first visit.  These include grippers cut to size for your hands (on handles or poles) and one for your head (to cover pillows). You are welcome to bring your own towel if you prefer. You can find your existing studio socks and add them to your bag*. We will no longer store socks at the studio as they need to be washed between visits.

You will bring this bag to every session (and we recommend packing a water bottle too).

*If you would like to add some SWAG to your bag, we can add socks, tanks, tees or hoodies for an additional charge.

We appreciate any or all support of the studio in this way!

SOCIAL DISTANCING AND VENTILATION: The studio has been reorganized into two workout areas to accommodate our occupancy allowance of 4.  You will notice a large number of signs that are mandated by New York State, the CDC and the Department of Health.  Since we do not have HVAC, we have two HEPA air filters that recycle the air every hour, as well, our front window and back door will remain open for circulation.  We are permitted to use the ceiling fans as long as they are programmed to pull air up (reverse position). You may also choose to have your session outside on the patio!

SANITIZING: We have multiple hand sanitizing stations all with an alcohol level of 70% or greater. High touch areas will be wiped down between sessions. If you would like the added protection of wiping the bathroom touch points before use, there are wipes available.

In addition to alcohol wipes and Clorox wipes, we use a medical grade cleaner- approved by the EPA and CDC.

ARRIVALS/DEPARTURES: Our studio door will be locked and you will be buzzed in at the time of your session. Please do not arrive more than 2 minutes ahead of schedule as you will be waiting on the stoop. The total session time will be 55 minutes (50 min lesson, 5 minutes to sanitize and 5 minute instructor mask break)

SCHEDULING: All scheduling and payments will be handled remotely. The instructors are strictly responsible for teaching and sanitizing and are not allowed to take any notes regarding scheduling.  I will be managing the studio remotely and appreciate your patience and understanding as I am also teaching virtually throughout the day.

CANCELLATION POLICIES: Any client who arrives 10 minutes or later after their session time, will not be buzzed in. If you anticipate being late, please move your session to zoom. If you move your session to zoom the day before, you will be charged the virtual private session rate ($95), if you late cancel within 24 hours or move your session to zoom on the same day, you will be charged the in-studio private session rate ($105).  Thank you for understanding that we are very limited by occupancy and instructor availability.
