Staying connected while staying healthy in these challenging times...
We are carefully following the Yoga Alliance and CDC recommendations for Yoga Studios and Retreats in Tennessee. Seven Springs is mostly outdoors, so we have the advantage of great natural ventilation! Still, we will ask you to be aware of your movement for the 14 days prior to arriving on site. We ask especially in those days to respect strict social distancing, including in all public spaces.
If you are joining a retreat or course: 1. All participants will have a private yurt or glamping tent if coming alone. Friends/family traveling together may share. 2. We will have a maximum of 10 students in each course and maintain a 6 foot distance of mats in our shala 3. Participants will be assigned a mat, set of blocks and strap for the duration of the course (you can bring your own of course as well) 4. We will have hand sanitizer available, and cleaning products in the bathroom so all can wipe down on a regular basis after use. We will assign everyone their own hand towel for drying hands (no communal towels). 5. We will sit in our dining area and classroom at a 6 foot distance. We have added more dining space to accommodate this. We will also be plating all food rather than offering food buffet style. 6. Our center is not open to the public on a daily basis, so the only others on the land are the chef and our family living in a separate house.
If you are creating your own experience: We invite you to follow these policies as much as applies to your individual experience or group experience. We welcome new and creative ways to stay connected and also healthy in these times!
We see this land as a little haven of connection and solitude, disconnecting to reconnect with our inner light, to rejuvenate and cultivate how we wish to share our light in this world that needs it so much.
