Studio Procedures & Guidelines During COVID

  1. If you are not feeling well, please do not come to the studio.
  2. If you have traveled out of the country or to a state with a COVID spike, we ask that you wait two weeks after returning home and experiencing no symptoms of illness before coming back to the studio.
  3. If you do contract Coronavirus, please notify the studio immediately. A MINIMUM two-week waiting period AND negative coronavirus test will be required to return to the studio.
  4. At this time, masks must be worn the entire time you are inside of the studio, even during classes (as per MA state regulations).
  5. Please make sure to reserve your spot for class through our free app or on our schedule page prior to coming to the studio. Class sizes are limited at this time, so we are unable to “squish-in” walk-ins once class is full.
  6. Please do not enter the studio more than 10 minutes before the start of class.
  7. We will have hand sanitizer available when you enter the reception area, and we will require that you sanitize your hands prior to entering the studio.
  8. You MUST bring your own mat with you. We will NOT be providing mats until further notice. If you show up without a mat, we will ask you to come back at another time when you do have one with you.
  9. While we request that you remove your shoes before walking into the actual studio, we do request that you have socks on until you get to your spot. If you would like to wear barre socks throughout class, feel free, or you may remove them once you are on your mat.
  10. If you are taking a class that involves equipment, the instructor will put out what is needed in each spot.  When class is over, the instructor will sanitize all equipment and put it away.
  11. There will be NO hands-on adjustments, cool down, or Reiki provided at this time. We will be providing lavender scented towels for cooldown at this time.
  12. After class, we ask that you leave the studio one at a time. This way clients have a chance to put shoes back on, get keys ready, etc. without crowding the reception area, so we can maintain social distancing.  Please restrain from staying in the lobby to chat with each other; If you would like to go outside and have conversations in an open-air, socially distanced environment, you are most welcome to do so.
  13. You will notice that there is a significant reduction in class sizes, so it is essential that you sign up to reserve your spot as early as possible. Likewise, if you cannot attend a class, please cancel it at your earliest opportunity to give someone a chance to get in off the waitlist.  Our class sizes are all MAXED at 10 clients.
  14. There MUST be a minimum of 30 minutes between in-studio classes in order for us to properly sanitize the equipment and the space. We would love your input regarding classes and times that are preferential for you, but we do ask that you take this into consideration.
  15. Please note that our Zoom classes are now a simulcast of a live, in-studio class. You will want to double check that you have signed up for the version you intend to take. There are a couple of ways to be sure (assuming I didn’t mess up while scheduling LOL). The description of the class should have [V] in the title if it is a Zoom class. Also, when you go to register for the class, double check the “Location” line. You will see “Anchor Barre Main Studio” for in-studio classes, “Anchor Barre Parking Lot” for outdoor classes and “Zoom” for the livestream.
  16. The video library, available right from our web site, is free to Virtual Crew Members, Unlimited Crew Members, and Elite Crew Members or $5 for a 2 day rental for non-members.
  17. Live, outdoor classes take place in our parking lot, and you’ll want to bring your own mat, towel & water, and get ready to werk outdoors. We need a minimum of 6 people to run these classes, and there are caps on classes to maintain proper social distancing, so make sure to sign up asap! Get some fresh air, sunshine and a serious sweat!
