Wellness Living – Schedule and Registration – Temporarily Out of Service

Tuesday – July 20

Wellness Living is back online.  Students should resume using their online accounts to purchase yoga passes and register for classes.  If you have any issues email us at yoga@bendhotyoga.com

Thanks

______________________________

Happy Monday everyone,

Wellness Living is down at the moment so you will be unable to access your accounts to register for class and we are unable to do anything on our end.

Please email the studio at yoga@bendhotyoga.com  and let us know your name, the class you would like to attend and the email address you use for your Wellness Living.

Please come to the studio 10 minutes earlier than normal – it is going to be hectic at the front desk and we want to allow enough time for everyone to get checked in and settle before class.

Thanks,

BHY

July 4th, 2021 – Covid, Radiant Heaters

July 4, 2021

New Covid Guidelines:

  •  All continue to be welcome at our Studio.
    • The state of Oregon has removed all Covid restrictions that would apply to the Studio.
    • At this time we do not require masks or proof of vaccine.
    • Any person wishing to wear a mask in the lobby or in classes may certainly do so.
    • As always, if you are not feeling well, please do come to the Studio to practice.
    • While Social Distancing as we have come to understand it is no longer required, please be aware of the people around you and maintain a respectful distance.

Classes have started using the Hot Room and its Radiant Heaters.  The feedback has been fantastic.  Temps are 105*F and the heat has been described as “like a giant warm hug!”

The Hot Room will be having the rest of the Lonseal floor installed in the next week, so some classes will be in Studio 2 while that happens.  Temps in Studio 2 will be 85*.

We hope to have an update in a week or so that everything is complete and we are fully open!  Details about the Open House Party will be coming then!!

Thank you,

BHY Staff

      • Fully vaccinated: means you have received both doses of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine and at least 14 days have passed since your final dose.
    • Un-Vaccinated:
      • Oregon Health Authority requires you continue to wear a mask over your nose and mouth and maintain social distancing at all times while in the studio.
    • All:
    • Remodel Updates:

      • The Hot Room has expanded.  2 walls removed making the total footprint 1000+ sq. ft.
      • Painting to begin this week. Mirrors will be hung on Friday.  Electrical to follow.  Hoping to have everything completed by the end of May.

Very excited to announce:

April 16, 2021 – Current Operations, Renovation and Covid Updates; IHP Teacher Training Announcement!

April 16, 2021

Progress continues – for students, teachers, staff and the studio.  We have been hosting In-Studio classes for 2 weeks.  It has been wonderful for the teachers and students to reconnect in person.  Feedback has been positive from everyone.  We continue to make minor updates/changes/improvements to our space, while the bigger renovations also continue. We very much appreciate everyone’s patience through this process as we work towards the final buildout.

  • The Hot Studio is currently at temps of 85* for class and we have  space for 9 (while maintaining covid distancing guidelines).
  • Studio 2 has a new wall, fresh paint and a new floor.  As soon as we put a new door in it will be ready for classes.
  • The heaters for the Hot Studio were scheduled to arrive this week, but the shippers are delayed.  Fingers crossed they arrive next week.  That will kick off next phase of renovation for the Hot Studio.  Knock out a couple walls to increase the studio floor size by 35%, install power for the heaters and install them, add additional flooring to the expanded space and change the door.  While all this is happening in the Hot Studio,  we will be practicing in Studio 2.
  • Social Distancing and Masks continue to be required at all times in the Studio
  • We will continue to Live Stream all In-Studio classes
  • Schedules and Purchase Options are available at Wellness Living.  All class registrations must be made in advance at Wellness Living
  • Contact us at yoga@bendhotyoga.com  with any questions, issues or feedback

We are looking for input from you.  Please complete our Survey to let us know what types of classes, days and times would work best for you.

In closing, we are very excited to announce:

Inferno Hot Pilates -Teacher Training – With Gabi Walters – Hosted at Bend Hot Yoga

More info to come

March 28, 2021 – Class Registration Opens, Schedule, iPad/iPhone users info

March 28, 2021

In-Studio class registration opens today (Sunday, 3-28)!  Classes can booked up to 7 days in advance.

View our Schedule here.

Purchase Options can be viewed and purchased by logging into your Wellness Living account through a browser, or by using you Wellness Living App.

iPhone/iPad Users: The Wellness Living Achieve App will not show purchase options for Live Stream or Video On-Demand (VOD). This is an Apple issue. Please use a browser to view all available purchase options.

We have communicated this previously, but want to make sure everyone is aware. Our new location will have 2 studios in it, and the space is still being renovated. A gentle reminder that the Hot Studio will not be heated to 105°F upon opening. We will get the room as warm as possible using the current HVAC system while we await our radiant heat panels to be installed in May.

We believe we have a great plan in place that will allow us to hold all classes that are on the schedule in one of our two studios. However, it is possible the contractors will ask us to close for a few days for safety reasons. Please consider this before making a commitment on Monthly and Upfront Purchase Options.   Class Packs are currently available for purchase and do not have an expiration date. Also, the Drop-In rate for April has been reduced to $15.   One of these options may be a good some of you. Remember, all classes must be booked online, Drop-Ins included.

We appreciate your understanding. We feel strongly this route is better because it allows us to practice in-studio starting April 2nd, rather than waiting for all renovations to be completed before we opened the studio.

Our class capacity is limited to 8 right now. In order to give the maximum amount of people the opportunity to practice, cancellation of your class must be given no less than 2 hours beforehand. No-shows will be charged a $20 cancellation fee.

We will provide a live stream of all our in-studio classes to keep your practice options open. Pre-registration is required for Live Stream as well.

Please review all our Studio Guidelines before registering for a class.

Thanks and looking forward to seeing you at the studio!

March 2021 – New owners, new home

Dear Bend Hot Yoga Community,

 We are so grateful for you, our students, who have fluidly adapted your practice to the pandemic, including the back and forth of virtual and in-person. Finally there is a bright light on the horizon. We are thrilled to announce we have a new home!! Studio renovations are up and running as we ready our new studio for our thriving community. 

 We are opening Friday, April 2nd for in-person classes. Our teachers are eager to see you in class soon! 

 Upon opening we will follow state Covid guidelines, so stay tuned as this will dictate class sizes. Virtual classes will remain an option for those not ready for in-person classes yet. 

 Thank you for your continued support and patience while Bend Hot Yoga continues to transition. For those of you who continue to practice virtually, and those who have maintained your ongoing membership, your support is vital. Thank you.

 We look forward to meeting you all in person in the coming weeks.  Please feel free to reach out to us any time for any reason.

Namaste,

Helen and Chris
