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
Be the Master of Your Own Mat.
