2022 VariYoga Teacher Training

For assistance, please contact us via email at or by phone at (479) 521-9641.

As we continue to monitor the severity of Covid-19, the Arkansas Yoga & Therapy Center will follow all applicable advice from reliable organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control, the Arkansas Department of Health and our local community leaders to prioritize the health & safety of our students, teachers, and staff.

In order to lessen the risk of spreading the virus, all persons inside at AYC are required to continuously wear face masks, covering the nostrils and mouth.

  • If a person feels safe, masks may be removed in class when there are fewer than 11 persons in the room, and with at least 6 feet of space between each person.
  • Please avoid handshakes, hugs, and other personal contact (we suggest using Namaste as a hands-free alternative). It will feel wonderful once we can freely mingle again!
  • Do not linger in the lobby area. (Visiting outside while maintaining safe distance is welcome!)
  • Clean your hands before and after class. (Soap and hand sanitizer are available in each bathroom at AYC.)
  • Consider using a personal towel/blanket to cover any community props you use, or bringing your own props to class.
  • Refrain from attending class if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, develop a fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other COVID symptoms. For the safety of our community, please, get tested.
  • Be aware that both vaccinated and unvaccinated people can unknowingly transmit the virus with or without symptoms.
  • Stay informed as the situation develops. We will update information here and on our Facebook Page at
