The yogic principle of Ahimsa (non-harming) teaches us that it is our responsibility to care for others just as it is to care for ourselves. We have implemented the following policies to keep our community as safe as possible.
Our studio has updated our mask and vaccination policy following current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Austin Public Health (APH). Thankfully, Austin has been at a low level of community risk since early March when APH moved Travis County to Stage 2 based on their Risk-Based Guidelines. As the community transmission and hospital admission rates have continued to remain low for our county, we will no longer be requiring proof of vaccination in order to go maskless at our studio.
We encourage our new guests and studio members to continue to share their vaccination cards in person or over email so we may have them on record in case we need to re-assess our mask policies at a later date.
Please know that we support your individual decision to wear a mask in our studio based on your personal level of comfort in light of these changes. We will continue to offer live-streams of all of our in-studio classes where everyone can feel completely safe to practice with us.
We are so proud of the Austin community for doing their part to keep their neighbors safe so that we could get to this point, and we are so thankful for the support of the community that we have formed together at Oak + Lotus.
Thank you so much for respecting our policies
and doing your part to keep our community safe and healthy.
And for continuing to show up on your mat for yourself and for us -
without your support, Oak + Lotus would not be able to weather this storm!
