WE ARE SO EXCITED TO
INTRODUCE OUR NEW OFFERINGS!

As you may know, Yoga Studios have been given the go ahead to reopen with several restrictions (due to Covid-19). We have been working tirelessly to piece together a selection of offerings that abides by these guidelines, and are very proud of what we’ve put together for you!

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON PRICING:

If you have an unused / active Class Package on your account that was purchased prior to our shut down - you will be receiving a Bloom credit for the value of your unused classes. We know that some of you are ready to return to classes and others do not feel safe returning yet. By providing each of you with credits, we are essentially wiping the slate clean and allowing you to use the funds on your account towards whatever service works best for your needs. We have completely reworked our Pricing Menu to include a Single Class Drop In, a 3 Class Package, and a 6 Class Package. Your Studio Credits can be applied towards any of these Class Packages, as well as Workshops, Series, or Online Classes (coming soon).

 

Credits will be given for any full or partially used pass that was active prior to our closure. Credits will NOT be provided for packages that had expired prior to March 16, 2020.  **Please note that credits will not show up on the Mindbody App, and you must make your purchases through our website.** Please click here for more information regarding credits.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I purchased a New Client Trial Pass / Class Package before you closed the Studio due to covid. Can I apply it towards a Class or Workshop?

No, unfortunately our "pre-covid" Class Packages, Memberships, and Trial passes no longer apply towards our new Classes and Workshops. HOWEVER, if you have an unused / active Package on your account that was purchased prior to our shut down–you will be receiving a Bloom credit for the value of your unused classes. Credits can then be applied towards the purchase of any class or event of your choice, including Indoor Classes, Outdoor Classes, Workshops, Series, or Online Classes (coming soon!). 

 

We are so sorry for this change, and any inconvenience it may cause. The new Covid restrictions have forced us to completely re-invent our pricing model in order for the Studio to sustain itself. In addition, many of our clients don't feel safe to return to classes just yet. By offering credits, we are essentially creating a clean slate for everyone, and allowing you to use the funds on your account towards the classes or events that work best for your individual needs. 

Please note that credits are only being given for any full or partially used passes that were active upon our closure (3/16/20). Credits will NOT be provided for any package that had expired prior to March 16, 2020. Credits will be available for use for one year, and you will have access to your credit through August 15, 2021. 

How much do the new Class Packages cost?

We have three pricing options available:

  • Single Class Drop In: $15

  • 3 Class Package: $39 (just $13 per class)

  • 6 Class Package: $72 (just $12 per class)

Packages can be applied towards either indoor or outdoor classes. ​In addition, we'll be offering several workshops and series which will be individually priced. Details for online classes will be coming soon (check back for more info). To purchase an Indoor / Outdoor Class Package, please click here

What about Monthly Memberships?

We sat for quite some time and deliberated whether or not we could bring back our monthly Crew Membership pricing option. We want nothing more than to get back to normal and to see each of your beautiful selves back in the studio! However, after running the numbers we realized that it is just not feasible for us to bring back a monthly membership option under the current restrictions. Cleaning requirements have greatly limited the number of classes we can offer indoors, and we do not feel it’s right to charge you for a monthly membership when you will have access to less than half the number of classes as compared to our schedule prior to Covid. Additionally, we have had to reduce class capacities by 80% (we can fit just 5 clients in Studio North and 7 clients in Studio East). This has taken a huge financial toll, and we’ve realized that the only way for Bloom to continue is to reinvent ourselves. In lieu of this, we have switched over to a Class Card Model for the time being (as outlined in the previous question). We do hope to bring back a monthly membership option once our schedule once restrictions lift, and will keep you all updated as the situation progresses!

How do I apply my Studio Credit?
**Please note that credits will NOT show up on the Mindbody App, and you must make your purchases through our website in order for your credit to be reflected.** To use your credit, please head to our website, navigate to the class or workshop of your choice and click on "sign up." Then, go through the check out process as prompted. Towards the end of checkout, you will be offered the opportunity to apply your credit. 

I think I should have a Credit available, but I'm not seeing it on my account?

**Please note that credits will NOT show up on the Mindbody App, and you must make your purchases through our website in order for your credit to be reflected.** If you are on the website, and you still do not see your credit, please email us at info@bloomyogafitness.com. We have had to apply all credits manually, and there were over 1,000 credits to issue! As you can imagine, this was a very tedious process and it's possible that we did not reach your name yet, or that your credit was missing from our report. Keep in mind that credits are only being given for any full or partially used passes that were active upon our closure (3/16/20). Credits will NOT be provided for packages that had expired prior to March 16, 2020. If you have questions about your account we are happy to assist you, so please reach out to us through email at your convenience!

Will I have to wear a mask during my class?

Masks will NOT be required during class, but they WILL be required any time you are off your yoga mat. We don’t know about you, but the idea of working out with a mask on gives us extreme claustrophobia! In accordance with State Guidelines, we will be requiring significant distance between mats which allows us to remove our masks during our practices. That being said, YOU DO NEED A MASK ANYTIME YOU ARE OFF OF YOUR YOGA MAT, so please bring one along with you and wear it before / after your practice, and when using the bathrooms.

What is your Cancellation Policy?

Please note, that space in our Indoor Classes is extremely limited and a 4 hour Cancellation Policy will apply! If your plans have changed, and you are no longer able to attend your class, please cancel your reservation within at least 4 hours of the class start time. If you do not cancel within at least 4 hours of the class start time, you will forfeit your payment for the class. This Policy applies on Indoor Classes only. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation, as we all work together to navigate these challenging times! 

What happens if my Outdoor Class gets cancelled due to weather? 

In the event of heavy rain or thunderstorms, classes will be cancelled. If we choose to cancel due to weather we will notify you by email within 60 minutes of the class start time (please be sure you have the correct email on your MindBody account, so that you receive notifications!). The cancellation will also be posted on our Class Schedule. Refunds are not available, however you will be able to use your purchase towards any future Outdoor Class of your choosing. 

 

I’m interested in taking an Indoor Series but I’m not able to make it to all four dates. Do you offer prorating?

No, unfortunately we are unable to offer prorating at this time. We have had to greatly reduce the capacities for our Indoor Series, due to Social Distancing requirements. Our instructors are paid based on attendance, so to ensure that each Series meets it’s overhead we cannot provide prorating. You are not required to come to all four classes, but keep in mind that we cannot provide any refunds or credits for missed classes. 

 

Can I still borrow a Yoga Mat / Blanket / Bolster / Blocks / etc during class?

NO, for your safety we will not be sharing props or mats. You MUST bring your own yoga mat for every class and series, and mats will not be provided. For blankets, bolsters, blocks, etc - the only time we will be providing them is during our indoor Restorative Yoga Series, and props will be thoroughly washed and sanitized after each use. Otherwise, if you would like to use props you MUST bring your own. For outdoor classes, we also recommend that you bring a beach towel to place under your mat or to use as a make-shift yoga blanket, as the pavement might be hard on your knees.

 

Will there be weights available during the fitness classes?

Weights will NOT be provided during Outdoor Classes under the tent. All Outdoor Classes have been modified to run without the use of weights. 

Weights WILL be provided for Indoor Classes. We will sanitize the weights thoroughly after each class. If you are not comfortable using Bloom's weights, you are welcome to bring your own dumbbells from home. 

 

Do I need to sign up ahead of time?

YES! Space is very limited (especially for indoor classes) so please register ahead of time. If your plans change and you are no longer able to attend, kindly cancel your reservation with as much notice as possible so that someone else can take your spot.

 

Can I pay for my class at the front desk, or do I need to pay ahead of time?

You MUST pay for your class ahead of time, and sign up online. We are unable to accept walk ins, or cash payments at this time, and all classes must be prepaid.

 

Are there any other guidelines I should know of?

Bloom is going above and beyond to create a safe and serene environment for you! Here are a few other guidelines to observe:

 

1. Masks are required whenever you are off of your mat. Clients without masks will not be allowed admission into the tent or studio.

2. Mats and props will NOT be provided. All clients must bring their own yoga mats and props.

3. Weights will NOT be provided during Outdoor Classes under the tent. All Outdoor Classes have been modified to run without the use of weights, however you are welcome to bring weights from home if you would like to add extra resistance. Please bring small dumbbells only, no large equipment or kettlebells will be allowed. Weights WILL be provided during Indoor Classes and will be cleaned and sanitized thoroughly after each use.

4. Changing rooms and showers will be closed, and we ask that you arrive dressed for your practice and avoid changing in our space.
