The BE is back! (Updated 7/15/20)

We’ve implemented new measures to limit exposure:

  • Clients and staff required to wear masks/face coverings at all times while in areas of the business open to the public, including all practice rooms and group classes.
  • Small room capacities. We expect full classes, so please preregister. On arrival, our front desk staff will check you in.
  • Floors are marked with lightning bolt decals. Place your mat at any empty bolt.
  • We are running a full schedule of BE Streaming classes FOREVER!
  • Booked spots will be held. No-shows and late-cancels will be charged, including members. So commit and show up! Please familiarize yourself with our New Cancellation Policies.
  • No more $5 Fridays at BE Yoga (sadface)
  • Class durations of 60 minutes or less.
  • BYO water bottles, mats, towels, and props. We won’t be using blankets and bolsters, or renting sweat towels.
  • Gym clients will receive a personal spray bottle and cloth to wipe equipment and surfaces.
  • Zero-tolerance policy for staff and clients exhibiting flu-like symptoms.
  • No live childcare, Kids Yoga, or Prenatal for the time being.
  • Read our current City-required posting of all of our COVID-related mitigation efforts.

More details

New Class Policies. Center your mat to lightning bolt decal on the floor. Be mindful not to congregate. If you're coughing or sneezing, please excuse yourself from class. Return rental mats to the front desk.

  1. We have reopened with a full schedule, but limited room capacities. The room caps will be quite small, and the floors will be marked for mat placement. Preregistration is highly recommended. Spaces will be held for those who have registered, and fees will be charged for no-shows and late-cancels (two hour window for no-fee, self-cancellation). BE STREAMING WILL CONTINUE, live from the classrooms, with roughly 30 classes available per week. The BE Streaming program is INCLUDED with unlimited memberships, but are also available as stand-alone ten-packs, drop-ins, and unlimited, streaming-only memberships.
  2. For the time being, class durations will be cut to 60 minutes. Doors will be propped open for hot classes. Certain classes will be BE Streaming-Only: Kids, Prenatal, Oxygen Optimization, and Pranayama Meditation. Child Care will not immediately reopen at BE Athletic. Restorative is on ice for now, until it seems safe to use soft props again. We will NOT rent or loan sweat towels, so please BYO. We are encouraging folks to bring their own mats, water bottles, and props of all kinds. We’ll only be using blocks in class. In the gym and studio, masks are encouraged but not required.
  3. A collection of the free Facebook livestreams we’ve been doing for 2.5 months will continue to be available for viewing in the video libraries of The Body Electric Yoga Company and The Body Electric Athletic Company.
  4. BE Streaming classes may be registered for through our website or app. If you’re using our branded app or the MINDBODY app, you must jump between both Athletic and Yoga locations to view the virtual schedule. They are easy to view here on the BE Streaming page.After registering, you will receive a link via email, which will include the Zoom link for the specific class. In these classes, you can have your camera on or off, so you can see other students, and there will be the possibility of interaction with the instructor. These classes are available (not downloadable) to those who registered for two days after the live class. MOST IMPORTANT is that the email address we have for you in your account is correct, and that you are opted-in to emails. Otherwise you won’t get the link. Also, please create a free Zoom account at Zoom.

Thanks so much for your support. The continued connections and good vibes of this community feels so good!

    Thank you for all your effort to keep us safe and healthy! I may well imagine the stress being felt by you. This pandemic stinks!!! I miss BE so very much. For me it is so much greater than a yoga class! I hesitate returning solely because my husband is auto immune compromised. He and I are in our seventies and more vulnerable. 🥴 I refuse to believe that BE is in my past! I hope to sign up for a class and return to your heartfelt space! Miss each of you a lot!!!

      So glad to see this post and grateful for all you guys are doing to keep everyone safe. Can you provide an update on the open gym policy? Is open gym still available? Is there a sign up for that?

      • Jenny says:

        Hey Kara! People are really interested in the Open Gym, which is great. So far we have no set capacity limit or time limit for users. We will keep an eye on things (we have cameras back there visible by Front Desk staff), and if people are having a hard time distancing, we will implement caps and time limits. EVERY client who comes in to use the Open Gym, Strength, or Conditioning Rooms will be given a personal microfiber towel and bottle of 70% alcohol spray, for wiping surfaces and equipment as they go. Our staff will also be regularly spraying everything.

      Hi Judy! Are you at all interested in practicing remotely? It doesn’t look like you’ve been in the livestreamed classes. I know it’s not the same, but it’s still pretty cool. We can help you get started if you like. It’s included in your membership! And of course we look forward to seeing you IRL as soon as you feel it’s safe to do so <3

    So are we still able to use the showers at all or are those gonna be off limits for now??

    I have missed the BE so much I can’t express it in words!!

    • Jenny says:

      Thanks, Eurich! We will be seeing you soon! Yes, you can shower, we are all about cleanliness. But make sure you bring your own towels, because we’re not loaning or renting them.
