COVID-19 Studio Update
We are excited to be re-opening One Tiger Yoga on August 15th, 2020! Things are going to look a little different when we reopen — we have taken the time to give our beautiful studio a little facelift (and to comply with the measures required by Health Canada to keep our studio a safe place) while we have been closed. Please read on to learn more about our new registration process and what to expect when returning to the studio.
Packages & Pricing
Following the guidelines set out by the authorities, class sizes are reduced to 18 spots per class, allowing a minimum of 8 feet between mats in the hot room. We took extra precautions to make sure our studio stays a safe place for our community and loyal clients. However, the reduction in the number of people in the hot room, in addition to the extra cost of sanitizing and hiring more staff to guarantee the safe flow of yogis in and out of the studio, increases the cost of operation to the point that previous pricing will not be sufficient. So with a mindful calculation, we have come up with a new pricing structure.
*Please note all auto-renewal memberships purchased prior to COVID-19 have be terminated, and all class card packages purchased prior to the pandemic will be honoured.

We are in this together and we will come out of this stronger. We, at One Tiger Yoga, are excited to welcome everyone back to the studio and we are looking forward to reunite all of you safely and help you shake off the COVID fatigue and stress from the past few months.
