Important New Covid-19 Class Information

Our Ohana means family–and family takes care of each other.

Your health is our top priority, and we have put special measures in place to keep all guests safe both during and after your activity. See the details of our new plan below, but keep in mind this is just the start. We will constantly be fine-tuning and updating our policies as we learn more.

 

Maui Goat Yoga’s Covid-19 Standard of Fitness and Safety.

    In accordance with Maui County and the CDC’s guidelines we have made some changes to how we operate. Here is what you can expect:

***Our Liability Waiver MUST be signed electronically through an e-mail you will receive after you sign up for a class.  All parties in your group must sign it as well.  I understand that if this Liability Waiver is not signed I will not be allowed to attend class ***

Our Heightened Deep-Cleaning Process

  • Top-grade disinfectant and more frequent cleaning. Staff will use a disinfectant proven to kill viruses like COVID-19 in all common areas before and after check-ins, with a heightened attention to yoga mats and all high-touch surfaces after every class. Mat towels will be laundered in hot water after every class.
  • Disinfecting high-touch surfaces. After every class we will disinfect gate handles, tables, retail containers, port a potty, and check in area.
    New Studio Policies
  • Social distancing will be observed in fenced yoga area and while checking in to Maui Goat Yoga. Per county and State Covid guidelines we are allowed to operate at half capacity. This means a max limit of 25 – 30 students per class with a minimum of 6 feet between each yoga station.There will be clear markings on the ground at check in area.
  • Hand sanitizer will be made available for use upon entry into the studio. We will require hand sanitizing as you come into class as well as after class.
  • Please wear masks at check in and upon entering property.  Instructors and staff will be wearing masks at check in as well. 
  • Masks will NOT be required for staff and students once class has started and of course will be optional if you feel more comfortable.  The county guidelines are as follows: Rule 5 , A  “This requirement shall not apply to persons engaging in permissible outdoor exercise activities, or at parks and beaches, so long as social distancing requirements are maintained.”
  • Instructors and staff receive daily wellness checks and temperature checks to ensure they are healthy and symptom-free
  • Health checks. Staff and students are asked to monitor their temperatures and overall health prior to coming into Maui Goat Yoga. Please stay home if you register at 100.4 degrees or higher. If you or anyone in your group is experiencing symptoms, we will work directly with you to cancel or reschedule your tour.
  • Keep personal items to a minimum. Personal belongings will no longer be stored at Maui Goat Yoga during class. We encourage you to leave large bags in your car, bringing only water, keys, hat, sunscreen and your own yoga mat if you prefer.
  • Reduced high touch areas. We will no longer use a sign in sheet to check in, the instructor or owner will take care of it for you. Please allow our staff to open the fence gate for you. Our staff will help with retail sales items as well.

The New Class Experience

Student Responsibility

Keeping each other safe. Aside from respecting the safety guidelines put in place by our governments, we ask that all students coming in with the intention to go above and beyond for each other.

  • Please make sure to practice social distancing. Please note the signage and markers placed around the yoga area to maintain a safe distance.
  • If you have a cough, fever, or symptoms of COVID-19 please do not come onto the Maui Goat Yoga property. See your physician and refrain from coming to class until you are symptom-free and fever-free for at least 3 days.
  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have knowingly come in contact with someone who has, we ask that you do not come to our class for 14 days or until you’ve tested negative for COVID-19.
  • If you feel unwell or have any concerns about coming in, please stay home and stay safe.
  • If you have recently traveled or have been around someone who has Covid-19, please refrain from coming to a class for 14 days or until you’ve tested negative for COVID-19.

Moving forward, we will continue to monitor the situation.
