Dear First Street Yoga Community,
Like so many of you, we are finding that our understanding of the Coronavirus pandemic is changing daily – and sometimes from moment to moment. Yesterday, Yoga Alliance, the body that provides accreditation of yoga teacher training programs and registers yoga teachers (RYT-200, RYT-500), sent a communication recommending that all in-person community based yoga class instruction be cancelled until the need for social distancing has past. This news was quickly followed by Governor Reynolds’ announcement of expanded community spread of the Coronavirus in the state of Iowa and a recommendation for school closings across the state.
Because of this new information, we have decided to suspend all First Street Yoga classes until April 5 at which time we will reassess the situation. This decision is based on recommendations and evidence, but most importantly on our sincere concern for each of you and for our community. As many are reminding us, social distancing is not done solely out of fear or selfishness. It is an act of caring and compassion intended to reduce interactions that may become the vector for the transmission of a serious illness.
We will stay in touch. Please feel free to contact any of us if you have questions or concerns.
