Faye Mahan is back - 8:30 AM on Fridays!
We are pleased to announce that fabulous Faye Mahan will be taking over the Friday yoga class, now starting at 8:30 AM. Enjoy her smooth seamless style and wonderful relaxing energy - welcome back!
Current COVID-19 Update
Due to the local government mandates that began in July, with our small lobby (which makes it difficult to maintain the minimum 6 ft social distance), please wear a protective face covering in the lobby when signing in until entering the yoga/pilates room where you can spread out as per the mandate. Also, tape is on the lobby floor to show the minimum 6 ft distance from the sign in sheet. Thanks for your help as we move through this unusual time!
We're Baaaaaaaack! (Safely Of Course)
The Governor's office, in their continuing efforts to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic and slowly re-open the state, feels that enough progress has been made to re-open yoga and pilates studios, so we are pleased to be able to say that Synergy will be re-opening with their regular class schedule beginning the week of May 11. Please see our yoga schedule page for more details.Synergy Cleaning/Sanitizing Procedures
This re-opening comes with the caveat that teachers and clients maintain appropriate social distancing before, during, and after class as well as satisfying stingent cleaning and sanitizing standards. Please feel free to wear a mask in class in addition to social distancing if that makes you more comfortable.
Until this pandemic is resolved, in addition to social distancing and the sanitizing/cleaning steps, some of our teachers prefer to wear a mask themselves when teaching, and will also require a mask to attend their class. That requirement will be noted next to their name on the website's "Yoga Schedule & Fees" page or on the "Weekend Yoga" link you can access from that page. If you are uncomfortable wearing a mask during class then please choose another class to attend that does not have that requirement.
Synergy already keeps the studio sanitized and sparkling (see our protocols listed just below) to meet and exceed those standards, so please come join us at Synergy as we resume our regular class schedule. Time to once again breathe (at least 6 feet apart), move, and smile - because no matter what is going on in the World, we ALL need that!
We understand how COVID-19 has created concern in our community, and we want to assure you the health and safety of our clients and teachers remains our top priority. To that effect, we want to share with you the practices and procedures that we have implemented at Synergy to keep our studio safe and clean. The following are the regular and daily practices we employ to ensure a clean and healthy environment for our teachers and clients:
- All equipment is cleaned after each use with an anti-viral disinfecting Clorox disposable wipe or with an anti-viral disinfecting solution.
- Teachers are washing their hands regularly.
- Clorox disposable wipes are available for use in the yoga room, Pilates room, and bathrooms.
- New yoga mats have been purchased so that clients have a fresh practice surface.
- All floors are disinfected with 70% isopropyl alcohol spray and bathroom rugs are washed regularly.
- Front door handles (inside and outside), light and fan switches, thermostats, alarm panels, water cooler knobs, sign in pens, door knobs, sound system controls, bathroom light switches, faucets, flush handles, toilet seats, etc are being wiped down with Clorox wipes several times a day.
What we ask from you to help keep our Synergy community healthy:
- Please do not congregate in the lobby before or after class. It is always good to catch up with family and friends, but please do so outside so you can mantain the appropriate social distancing.
- Please do not come to your appointment or class if you are sick or feeling unwell (fever, dry cough, body aches, malaise, GI symptoms, shortness of breath).
- Wash your hands before and after your appointment or class.
- Lower the toilet seat prior to flushing to eliminate any potential "backsplash".
- After class, please take advantage of the anti-viral wipes/solutions in each room to assist the teacher in wiping down your equipment, mats and props.
- If you have recently been to China, South Korea, Japan, Europe, Iran or have had close contact with someone known to have the coronavirus, please refrain from coming to the studio for 14 days from your return or contact.
Should anything change with regards to our hours, appointments or class schedules, we will immediately let our clients and community know. Stay healthy, keep moving, remain calm and wash your hands!

mobility, and reduces pain and the effects of stress. This class is appropriate
