Now Yoga Community Survey—Spring 2021
As we consider reintroducing in-person classes, we’d love your feedback. Please take a moment to complete the following survey. Your input will help us determine what’s in the best interest of our teachers and students, and to better meet the needs of our entire community. Thank you for your support.
Are you presently residing in NYC with proximity to Astor Place?
Are you currently practicing with Now Yoga online via Zoom?
If you answered "No" to the previous question, check any or all that apply:
I don't enjoy taking yoga class online through Zoom.
Online class times don’t fit my schedule.
I can not afford the cost of online classes.
I’m practicing elsewhere or on my own.
I’ve lost interest in practicing yoga.
How would you describe your relationship to online classes?
Zoom is fine, but I'm eager to return to the studio.
I'd like the option to practice from home as well as at the studio.
I live outside of NYC, and would like to continue practicing with Now Yoga online.
I prefer the convenience and safety of practicing online from home, no matter where I am.
New York State DOH guidelines require that all teachers and participants of group fitness classes wear masks and practice social distancing (minimum 6 ft) while indoors, thereby restricting the use of hands-on adjustments. Until and unless these stipulations change, would you be interested in attending an in-person class and be willing to adhere to these guidelines?
In line with DOH protocol, we would require that students preregister for class, complete and pass a health screening prior to arrival, and bring their own yoga mats (and personal set of props, when possible). Would you be willing to adhere to these guidelines in order to take an in-person class?
If Now Yoga were NOT to require proof of vaccination and therefore require that the safety protocol detailed above be followed to the letter, even for individuals who are fully vaccinated, would you be interested in attending an in-person class?
Should Now Yoga require that all participating teachers and students in in-person classes be vaccinated?
Which of the following criteria would be required for you to feel safe in the studio? (Select all that apply.)
Preregistration and health screening prior to arrival
Proof of vaccination.
Hand washing/ sanitizing required upon entry
Mask mandate for all (staff and students) in reception and practice room during class
Class size limited to accommodate 6 feet between mats
Use of one’s own mat and props—either brought from home or rented from the studio
Restricted congregation in reception/ common areas
Zero use of hands-on adjustments
Prior to reopening, Now Yoga would undergo and pass the required DOH safety inspection ensuring proper ventilation and would enact a plan for compliance with all safety protocol mentioned above and including routine surface sanitization and the display of COVID-19 DOH signage within the studio. Is there anything else you would like to see addressed before returning to the studio?
If a limited schedule of in-person classes were to return to our Astor Place studio as early as May, would you be likely to attend?
If "No" or "Maybe," check any or all that articulate why:
I no longer live proximate to the studio.
I do not yet feel ready to return to in-person yoga classes.
I am not yet vaccinated; when I am, I’ll be ready to return to the studio.
I will return to in-person classes if and when COVID-19 safety restrictions are lifted.
It will depend on which teacher(s) are offering in-person classes.
It will depend on whether my location and schedule change in the coming months.
If applicable, which day(s) of the week would you likely visit the studio for an in-person class?
If applicable, what time(s) of day would you mostly likely practice at the studio?
Early AM (8–10am)
Late AM (10am–12pm)
Late afternoon (3–5pm)
Later evening (7–9pm)
If returning to the studio, what kinds of classes and programming would you most like to see offered? (Check any that apply.)
Regular, weekly classes
Private (one-on-one) or semi-private sessions in the studio
Limited series and/ or once-monthly workshops
Introductory beginner series
Now Yoga Vinyasa (open level, intermediate, etc)
Now Yoga Basics
Yoga for Seniors
200-hr Teacher Training
300-hr/ Advanced Teacher Training
If Now Yoga were to offer a regular outdoor class through the summer and early fall in a park or outdoor space downtown, would you be interested in attending?
Is there anything else you’d like to share with us at this time, regarding reopening, online classes, or anything else?
