A message from Sylvie Laflèche-Greig, Crystal Tree Yoga Inc. Owner, Studio Director
These are historic, challenging and changing times. In the age of information, where what is being shared and mandated are often changing (sometimes even daily), we trust that you understand that the policies and procedures being implemented by Crystal Tree Yoga Inc. are those that we feel are best for Crystal Tree Yoga, Stonewell Farm (our wonderful host for outdoor offerings), the teachers and for our community at this time. We have always gone above and beyond many of the suggested procedures and/or mandatory policies to do our very best to reduce the risks as we come back to practicing together in person.
The measures taken are in response to the call of the hour, and we are flexible. When needs shift and change, we shift and change our responses and actions as well.
If you are comfortable with the measures that we are implementing, we look forward to having you IN PERSON to practice with us.
If you prefer to continue with meeting us virtually for our live ONLINE and ON DEMAND (coming summer 2021) classes, we honour your choices and look forward to continuing seeing you with our full schedule of online options.
We are grateful to each and every one of you and we thank you for your continued support and encouragement.
We look forward to this next transition...
If you have any questions about the studio, the return to in person classes, classes, teachers, substitute teachers, schedule, QR Code for Covid 19 Self-Assessment Forms, whatever it may be, we ask that you address these directly with Sylvie, Studio Director and Owner of CTY Inc.
Other things to consider regarding attending classes on our schedule :
Even when a class appears to be full, you may, and should, add yourself to the wait list. When a cancellation is made, the first name on the wait list gets automatically added and confirmed for the class. You will receive an automated email or text at this time. Please consider yourself CONFIRMED and therefore responsible for either attending or canceling.
A 2 hour cancellation notice is required by participants and must be done through the online system.
In the event of class cancellation (i.e. inclement weather, Instructor illness or the minimum class requirement not being met), registered participants will receive an email notification a minimum of 1 hour prior to class time whenever possible. The online class schedule will also be updated to reflect the cancellation.
What to Wear
Wear comfortable, loose, active wear that won’t restrict your movement. Your clothing should be loose enough for you to move in, but not so baggy that it gets in your way or that your Instructor can’t see your form. A tank top and leggings/yoga pants for women, and a t-shirt and elastic-waisted shorts for men should be perfect. You may also want to bring a long-sleeved layer, as you may get cold at the end of your practice. Also, it is customary to have bare feet during class. This is both so you don’t slip, and so that you can more firmly connect to the Earth beneath you.
We are all influenced by the sense of smell. Since our Yoga practice involves a lot of deep breath work, we ask that you be mindful of this before coming to class. Strong scent carried on a person’s clothing or body can fill the space and affect other student’s practice even when outdoors (i.e. perfume, smoke, etc.).
Parking at Stonewell Farm is lengthwise by the guest house, in front of the barn or sideways by the garage with the greenhouse. If these spots are all taken, please come out toward the parking area, turn around, head back out the driveway toward the entrance and pull over to the right onto the grass facing out toward the road.
Please do not block anyone and please do not park at the house.
This is a welcoming environment where you are encouraged to let go of judgement, competition and expectations and to just "be" on your mat. Your yoga practice is about you and your inner journey. Observe and listen to your body and enjoy your class.
Remember to take all of your belongings with you.
Students must be 18+ to attend any regular scheduled classes, unless otherwise specified.
We encourage you to try a variety of classes and meet the many teachers that we have here at CTY so that you can experience different styles and see what you like best. We have amazing, experienced Yoga teachers offering classes for every ability and every body!
