Keep calm but wash your hands!
Wow…the Corona Virus is really affecting how we live right now. I’ve never seen anything like this. While I do not want to panic or create any panic, I think it is important to be calm but more diligent about our actions. In light of what is happening in world right now, here is what I am thinking about for the studio…
- For now, I want to move as much of our activities as possible outside. As of today, Monday, March 16, all classes will be outside with the exception of the Release/Restore class.
- Thursdays Step n Strength class will be replaced with Hike n Tone on March 26th. That will get us out of the studio too.
- You could also consider the Nordic Walking Clinic and Clubs as an outdoor fitness activity.
- Release & Restore will stay in the studio unless we are instructed otherwise.
- Personal Training will stay in the studio unless you or the situation dictate otherwise.
Below is a list of ways I am protecting us in the studio:
- As always, I’m cleaning and disinfecting ALL surfaces and props, including wall, light switches, door knob/handles, taps, scales, and bathroom fixtures. I am also running the thieves oil in the diffuser all day to disinfect the air.
- A spray bottle of hand sanitizer is at the door for you to use. I appreciate all your efforts to sanitize your hands prior to entering the studio.
- Please…If you are sick stay home! – If I am sick I will cancel all classes and sessions.
Wash your hands, wash your hands and wash your hands.
- Use soap. For at least 20 seconds. This is one of the best ways to avoid becoming sick or infecting others.
- Cough into your elbow, and away from others. A sneeze can send droplets up to 8 meters and a cough up to 6 meters. The droplets can suspend in the air for up to 10 minutes.
- Bring your own mat if you have one.
- Also, bring your own Melt Ball, if you have one
As always, I welcome your thoughts and ideas. Let me know if I missed anything.
Please let me know if you see something that could be addressed or done better – Keep in mind that I do have a couple people whose immune system is severely compromised and need extra care not to get any illness.
. . .constantly checking media is not going to benefit your health.
Take positive measures to boost your immune system. Get outside in the fresh air, get plenty of sleep, laugh often, hang with your loved ones, eat well and take any supplements for areas you are lacking. The article below may give you some ideas.
Please be kind and compassionate, here in the studio, and out in the community. Have a look at this article if you want to shift your perspective on the situation.
