Updated: December 20, 2021:  All classes are ALL-LEVELS.  Beginners are welcome in every class.  Space is limited. Preregistration is encouraged to guarantee your spot but walk-ins are welcome.

Everyone, regardless of vaccination status, will continue to be able to practice at RIPY without a mask.  In order make that happen, we will continue to use several full-length barriers and maintain adequate space between students throughout the studio.  In addition, we were required by new RI state mandates to implement the following policies, effective Monday, December 20, 2021:

1). If you choose to show us your vaccination card, you may continue to come and go without a mask.  Cards need only be presented once (your account will be noted).  A photo of your card is sufficient.  Please do not email, text or message a photo of your card to us.  Simply bring it with you on your next visit.

2). If you do not present a card, you must wear a mask in our lobby and studio unless you are on your mat behind a barrier.  Once you are on your mat behind a barrier, you may remove your mask for practice.

Doors open 15 minutes before the scheduled class time.  If you arrive early, kindly wait in your car or on our outdoor pathway.

Please keep our cancellation policies in mind when making your class reservations.  All sales are final.  Weekend and holiday reservations are non-refundable and non-transferable. Please plan accordingly. Weekday class reservations canceled 24hrs in advance of the scheduled class time will be returned to your RIPY account for a future reservation. However, YOU must cancel your own reservation on-line thru MBO. Phone or email messages DO NOT QUALIFY as a cancellation. Weekday cancellations less than 24-hours in advance are non-refundable and non-transferable.

A SAFE ENVIRONMENT

EVERYONE – even those not vaccinated – MAY REMOVE THEIR MASKS DURING PRACTICE

Plexiglass barriers allow those not vaccinated to safety remove their masks during practice.  We will keep barriers while the state requires non-vaccinated individuals to wear masks indoors.

Did you know?  Scientific studies suggest high heat and humidity are associated with inactivation of airborne viruses such as cornaviruses.  For a summary of research articles complied by Philip, click here.

And of course, as always we will continue to use a safe but powerful disinfectant that includes a VIRUCIDE (designed to kill viruses) to clean our floors, bathrooms and all high-touch surfaces.  We also continuously run a PECO AIR FILTRATION device in our studio.  PECO (Photo Electrochemical Oxidation) destroys pollutants including viruses, as opposed to collecting them as HEPA filtration does.

FAQs

What is the cost of a class? 

$18 for a single class

$80 for a 5-class pass (valid Sunday, Jan 2nd – Saturday, Feb. 5th 2022)

Twice a week we offer a $10 class taught by our Developing Teachers.  Those classes are Tuesday’s at 7:30p and Friday’s at 6p.

Are you offering an intro pass, teen rates; student/military/senior discounts or Developing Teacher classes?

Until we can operate again at full (or close to full) capacity, there are no discounted passes – but we do offer two $10 classes taught by our Developing Teachers on Tuesday’s at 7:30p and Friday’s at 6p.

How do I register for a class?

Directly from our website www.ripoweryoga.com – or from your MindBody app.  Walk-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is the only way to guarantee your spot in class.

What is your cancellation policy? 

All sales are final.  Due to limited space and high demand, weekend and holiday reservations are non-refundable and non-transferable, no matter when you cancel. Please plan accordingly. Weekday class reservations canceled 24hrs in advance of the scheduled class time will be returned to your RIPY account for a future reservation. However, YOU must cancel your own reservation on-line thru MBO. Phone or email messages DO NOT QUALIFY as a cancellation. Weekday cancellations less than 24-hours in advance are non-refundable and non-transferable.

What if I pre-register and can’t make it?

Please see our cancellation policy above.

Do I have to pre-register for a class?  Can I just show-up?

Walk-ins are welcome, but if you want to be guaranteed a spot – especially on weekends – we recommend you sign-up in advance.

If a class is sold-out, you can try your luck and show-up anyway.  If there is a no-show, we’ll add you to the class.

How do I know if a class is full or not?

Go to the landing page of this website.  Give it a second for the daily schedule to load at the top.  Once it does, you can navigate to any day of the year from that schedule.  Once you arrive to the day you want, check to see if there is a sign-up button next to the class time you are interested in attending.  If there is a sign-up button, that means there is space available in that class.  If there is no sign-up button, the class is full.  Check back often.  If someone cancels, the sign-up button will reappear.

I’m new.  What class should I attend?

We LOVE beginners and you are welcome to join us for any class on our schedule.  We don’t offer a variety of class types.  We offer one class, several times per day.  So pick the class time(s) that best fit your schedule.

Will I be able to change my clothes before or after class?

Yes, our bathrooms and changing rooms are open and cleaned after every class.  However, socializing or lingering in our lobby is discouraged.  You will be asked to arrive no sooner than 15 minutes before class time, and to leave promptly after class.

Tell me about mask wearing?

If you are fully vaccinated (two weeks out from your final dose), and have shown us your vax card, you are free to come and go without a mask.  If you are not fully vaccinated, or have not shown us a vax card, masks are required until you are on your mat behind a barrier.  Once you are on your mat behind a barrier, you may remove your mask for practice.

What should I know about mats, blocks and towels?

You’ll need your own!  We have these items, as well as water, electrolytes and RIPY swag available for purchase at the studio.  Mats and towels are also available for rent if needed.

I had unexpired classes remaining on a pass prior to covid.  Can I receive credit?

Yes, to request your credit, please email Renee: info@rhodeislandpoweryoga.com.
