Dear Nandi Community –
Welcome back to open California! We are open with an expanded schedule and have props available for all indoor classes.
All Indoor, in Person classes and are only available to people who are at least two weeks past their first vaccine dose or who have had a Covid PCR test completed within 72 hours of class time. If you are fully vaccinated (two weeks past your Moderna or Pfizer second dose or two weeks past your single dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine), then you do not have to wear a mask indoors while on your mat during class. Blocks, straps, blankets and rental mats are available as well. For outdoor classes, you will continue to need to bring your own props.
Please show us your vaccination card (one time only) when you come to the studio. You are okay to come if you have traveled unless you have a cough, fever or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid.
Note: If you have a severe, documented, immunological, allergic or other medical issue that prevents you from being vaccinated please reach out to us and we’ll work with you to figure out how to best participate in Nandi classes.
We have also relaunched our Beginners program for people new or inexperienced in yoga or who just want to start over from the beginning. All beginning flow classes are now indoors, in person only to allow for props (blocks, belts, mat rentals) and more direct assists from teachers. We are also looking to add a Yoga Basics class (teaches the 25 core poses underlying flow based yoga) as well as expand our Iyengar program over the next few months.
For Outdoor, In Person classes, no vaccination or Covid test is required – we do ask you to follow our our covid protocol. Our outdoor space is awesome – we have put up a permanent canopy structure on one set of mats for when it’s too hot and we have another set of tatami mats for when it’s a little cooler. You will continue to need to bring your own props and mat.
If you have not been vaccinated we will follow the same protocol as before – please see our covid protocol page. WE WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCING OUR COVID PROTOCOL SO PLEASE DO NOT COME IF YOU HAVE A COUGH, FEVER OR HAVE BEEN OUT OF THE BAY AREA IN THE PAST 10 DAYS.
For Zoom’d classes, please note it is VERY HELPFUL if you register more than 30 minutes before class as we send out the links 30 minutes before class. If you register after that point, we will do our best to get you the link as timely as we can – but if we get 10-20 last minute requests it may take us some time.
TIME SHIFTED CLASSES: It is now possible to time shift all our Zoom’d classes – all you have to do is sign up before the class or let us know after the class is over (call or email the studio) and we will send you a link to the recording. The link will be valid through the next day after the class is taught (so approximately 36 hours). Given everyone’s busy adjusted coronavirus schedules, we know this will be helpful to many people.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TIME SHIFT A CLASS BEYOND THE NEXT DAY, all you need to do is reach out to the studio and let us know when you think you want to take the class and we can send you the link on that day. If you have a unique situation, just let us know and we will find a solution that works for you.
COMMUNITY CLASS: We have reinstituted our Sunday Community Class – it’s a donation based (free) class – it will be each Sunday at 1:00pm taught by one of Nandi’s staff teachers – so feel free to join us for this class. For now it is being zoom’d but we hope to soon be able to return it to in person in the next few weeks.
