All will pass…
We will fill the studio again (to 75% capacity)!
We’re so pleased to announce that from midday on Sunday, October 18, 2020, the Hot Yoga Ibiza studio will be back to business as usual!
After four weeks of mandatory government restrictions forced us to close our doors, we’re more than ready to get back to practice and can’t wait to see all your smiling faces in the studio once more. Due to the existing health and safety guidelines, our studio capacity is slightly limited at the moment, so it’s first come, first served for each class as it was at the beginning of the season, and we would love to see he studio filled again (to 75% of our legal capacity!).
While we were closed, it was nice to see some of our students get together and take their practice into the great outdoors with our founder and instructor, Sebastien Carincotte. While we know it’s not always feasible for all students to join these sessions (not to mention some of you just want that hot, sweaty studio environment), we want to send a big thank you to everyone who did their best to support us and maintain their practice during these past difficult weeks.
And it really has been difficult, for all of us – in different ways. For some, you lost your sacred space to practice – despite the fact we had followed all health and safety rules and regulations to the letter. For others, you lost some of your strength and flexibility, without a place to practice every day. And for even more, you lost the mental clarity and stability that a regular yoga practice brings. Our neighbours lost their freedom (yet again), and some have even lost their livelihoods, as businesses in the area were forced to close down against their will. For us, the latest lockdown pushed us into quite a tricky situation – these are tough times, but we can get through them together.
For this reason, now is the time we would like to reach out to ALL our students – past, present, still-thinking-about-it, and future – to ask for your vital support in the coming weeks. If you love having a professional yoga studio to drop into, if you like practicing the classic Bikram method (we are the only studio on the island with a heated space with the right levels of humidity), if you want to learn more about Hatha, Meditation and Breathwork, if you want to connect with a like-minded community, or if you’ve ever wanted to deepen your practice, then come to class! We need your support to keep the studio open in the future – and we want to be able to provide you with a safe place to practice regularly, under the watchful eyes of a very experienced teacher.
We can assure you that our school maintains the correct level of social distancing within the studio, and follows strict hygiene and cleaning protocols in between each class. If for any reason you feel hesitant about joining a class then please give us a call and we can talk you through what we do to keep you safe and secure while you practice. We cannot stress enough that now, more than ever, the world needs yoga. Closing socially distanced yoga studios is not good for anyone’s health – both mental and physical – and so we are happy, and grateful that the powers-that-be in Ibiza have recognised this and allowed us to reopen our doors once again this weekend. This will pass. We will fill the studio again (though for now, only to 75% capacity!). See you on the mat – timetable here.
