Studio News: Corona updates

By: Delight Yoga

Check this blog for the latest updates on our Corona measures and how the current situation is impacting our studios.

17.02.21

We are so grateful that we will be able to fully reopen our studios without any restrictions. We can’t wait to welcome you back!

Measures in the studios
As of Friday, February 18th, wearing face masks and keeping a 1.5 meter distance is no longer required in our studios. However, because we realise that we all have to get used to the ‘old normal’ again, we will keep working with designated mat placements in our shalas. As of Friday, February 25th, scanning QR codes in our studios will no longer be necessary.

Unity Days (20 & 27 February 2022)
A couple of weeks ago, we started to plan our Unity Day on Sunday, February 20th, without knowing that measures would be coming to an end so soon. In light of the changed circumstances, we decided to add another moment of celebration on Sunday, February 27th.

Join 3 workshops for free!
Our plans for Unity Day on the 20th will stay the same - you will be able to join 3 workshops guided by Daphne, Moena and Victoria for free! You can book them through the regular schedule. According to the government’s measures, workshops are considered education and not sports, so do not require a QR code. For our classes, we will keep scanning QR codes until the 25th.

Join a class on the 27th for only 5 euro
On the 27th, we will come together again to celebrate togetherness. There will be drinks and bites in the studios to welcome everyone. We have also created a nice offer especially for this day - you can join a class with our Unity Day Card for only 5 euros. You can also join our classes with a membership or class card.

Take a look at our website for more information - we hope to see you there!

Have you heard the good news? As of tomorrow, 15 January, we will reopen our doors with happy hearts and fresh energy. In this email, you’ll find everything you need to know about what our reopening will look like and how it will affect your membership or card.

You can practice in all of our studios, all day
All of our studios in Amsterdam and Den Haag are back open. There is no evening lockdown, so you can also practice after a long day with us again. Online classes that have been added during the current lockdown will be taken off the schedule.

What will happen to your membership?

  • Do you have an active Delight Membership/Mysore Membership? No need to wait! You can now book classes through our schedule again.
  • Do you have a frozen membership? Your membership will be automatically reactivated on Monday, 17 January. If you want to go to a class before then, you can come as a walk-in.
  • Do you have a card? At the beginning of next week, we will begin extending cards that expired during lockdown with the duration of the lockdown period. Do you want to go to class before your card has been extended? You can join as a walk in.

Our Corona safety measures:

  • We will keep a 1.5 meter distance in our lounge, dressing rooms, and shalas.
  • We will need to check Corona passes (CTB) as you enter.
  • Face masks are mandatory, but can be taken off as soon as you have arrived on your mat.
  • You can happily borrow our mats & props for your practice.
  • For a full list of our safety measures and guidelines read more here.

Still hesitant to practice in person or showing symptoms?
We understand, and our online platform is there for you! Delight Online offers daily live-streamed classes, an extensive on-demand library, and several playlists to guide you through your home practice.

We are so happy that we can finally connect in person and be a home for your practice again. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Community Care department for support.

Namasté,

The Delight Yoga team


20.12.21

The news that we have to cancel all our in-studio workshops and classes until January the 14th has yet to sink in behind the scenes at Delight. Probably like many of you, we are moving through different phases of disbelief, disappointment, and sadness. Yet there is also a sense of ease and openness with the deep trust in the strength of our community. We certainly did not see this coming, and even though it feels heavy right now we truly believe we will get through this together again.

We aim to help students to stay connected to themselves and to rely on their inner strength in the midst of turmoil. We will do everything we can to continue doing so during this new lockdown.

Online special classes & programs

To keep supporting you and find balance and connection during these challenging times, we’ve created the following programs:

During our End of the Year & New Year Satsang with Satya Katiza, we come together daily from the 27th of December until the 2nd of January, from 11:00-12:30 to connect and reflect.

Our special Staying Anchored in your Seat classes Victoria Raven Hyndman will share balancing and nourishing practices to stay centered during these challenging times every Monday from 10:00-12:00.

Our daily Silent Sit Meditation provides the online space to meditate together under the guidance of our Silent Sit teachers Royce, RolandJan, Sjoerd, and Inge.

If you haven’t already, you can still join our “Balance Your Vata” online program until the 31st of December to stay balanced in Autumn/Early winter through the wisdom of Yoga & Ayurveda.

New daily Livestream classes

Besides our regular daily online classes, we will also schedule new Livestream classes every day so you can keep practicing with your favorite teacher. Because we are currently migrating to a new booking system, the schedule will be released on Friday the 23rd of December.

The new Livestream classes are only accessible with a Delight Membership, Delight Mysore Membership, Delight Guest, or any Delight Card (not with a Delight Online Membership or Online Day Pass).

For those who keep supporting us through these difficult times: please know that we are deeply grateful and want to thank you for your support.

If you have a Delight Guest, any 10 or 20 class card, an introduction card or a private card, please note that we will extend this automatically for you. The card will be extended for the duration of the current lockdown. Of course, you can use your credits for our online classes too in this period.

Did you leave your mat at one of our studios?

You can come and pick it up in De Clercqstraat, Nieuwe Achtergracht or Den Haag on Wednesday 22 December until Friday 24 December between 9-12 AM.

We wish you and your loved ones health and ease in these times and we are already excited for the moment that we can welcome you back again in our studios in Amsterdam and The Hague.

With love,

The Delight Team
