COVID-19 Studio Updates

January 30, 2021
OK so onward & baby steps upward …. Let’s continue moving together MNDFL family!
With yesterday's announcement of the AB Government planning to ease restrictions and allowing indoor fitness facilities to reopen, we want to clarify what that means. As of Mon, Feb 8th MNDFL Movement Studio is ONLY allowed to offer one-on-one sessions and group private sessions from the SAME household, no group exercise is permitted at this time.
Taylor will continue to offer our online mat based movement sessions through MNDFL virtual platform and MNDFL On Demand will be launching soon (providing access to over 50 classes online)!
If you'd like to book a Private One-on-One reformer Pilates session and/or a Private Group session from the same household, please do so via our website under: BOOK TRAINING
Here are further details from the AB Gov website:
Mandatory restrictions - Province wide - Effective Feb. 8
Group or team sports not permitted
No sports games, competitions, team practice, league play or group exercise of any kind is allowed.
One-on-one training is permitted
Only one-on-one or one-on-one household training is permitted for indoor fitness activities (e.g. fitness in dance studios, training figure skating on ice, one-on-one lessons).
Sessions have to be scheduled or by appointment. No drop-in or groups allowed.
One-on-one sessions cannot interact with others and there must be a minimum of 3 metres distance between sessions in the same facility.
Trainers must be professional, certified and/or paid trainers who are providing active instruction and correction. Passive supervision of a physical activity is not considered training.
Trainers should remain masked during the session; clients are not required to wear a mask while exercising
More than one trainer and client ‘pair’ are allowed into the facility, studio, rink, court, pool, ice surface, etc. so long as:
Each trainer and client stays 3 metres away from all other trainers and clients at all times, including in entryways and exits.
Each trainer can only interact with their assigned client, and each client can only interact with their assigned trainer.
No interaction between clients or between trainers is allowed.
No ‘cycling through’ multiple trainers as in circuit training.
As you may have already been made aware the Government of Alberta has put us back into a phase one version of a lockdown.
What does this mean for MNDFL?
We can continue to run:
1- Groups from the SAME household
2- Private 1-1 training sessions
We have to pause:
1- All Group Sessions (people from different households)
2- All Semi-Private Sessions (people from different households)
What is next:
1- Effective tonight at midnight. ALL sessions with 2-3 people from different households are currently paused. This means that these groups WILL resume (at their current allotted times and dates) as soon as restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so. Please be sure to clear up any outstanding session payments that have not yet been cleared. If you don’t know please reach out to me directly.
2- I will amp up my LIVE virtual at home session schedule for those that want to move with me during this lockdown. Every session can be booked via wellness living and will be $10.00/ session or you can buy a ten class virtual pass (for ease of booking- price doesn't change). Please refer to the schedule to book your LIVE sessions now.
3- If you are a part of a group of three and are interested in booking in for a private or group session w/ the same household please let me know, as there is now lot’s of time for 1-1 or same household sessions (while we are on pause).
4- If you are currently booked in for regular private/ semi-private sessions (from the same household), I will be reaching out directly as I may request an interim time change for your session...during this phase of the lockdown. This will allow me to condense the schedule to make for better flow and ease of transition in the studio. These new time slots will NOT be permanent, however would remain in effect until the end of phase one lockdown when groups can re-open. At that point your session time slot would return to the previously scheduled time (how it is now or previously discussed).
4- Due to the increase in cases/ variant cases I will be requiring clients to self affirm the COVID-19 ALBERTA HEALTH DAILY CHECKLIST.
If you respond YES to any of the questions or are NOT able to come to your in-person session, we can divert to a virtual session for that day/weeks so you do not have to cancel your-private / semi private if you don’t want.
