Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Self Care and Staying Flexible

The mounting fear, panic and confusion surrounding the coronavirus can be exhausting and put our nervous system on high alert. In a distressed state we are more susceptible to illness. It is important to do the things that settle your nerves, help you rest, and keep your immune system, body, mind and heart strong! Things like breathing deeply, moving, meditating, and getting good nutrients.

Yes, our current situation is all kinds of uncertain and uncomfortable. Yes, it’s bringing up insecurities and doubts. Give yourself permission to feel all of what you feel, fully. Don’t beat yourself up for lashing-out, crying, yelling; feeling depressed, overwhelmed, underwhelmed, or confused.

“Of course I feel this way. It makes complete sense that I feel [insert barrage of feelings here]!”

Nothing is permanent. Remember that with our every thought, word and action, we can create a better situation around us. By choosing to get grounded, choosing an investigative pause instead of impulsive reaction, practicality and intellect over fear and retreat, we set the stage to thrive amidst the chaos.

What are the stories you’re telling yourself these days? Be aware of those stories. Toss the lies. Stay in the truth. We’re here to accept and support you through it all!

Stay tuned to this page, as we add resources and encouragement here for your self-care efforts!

We’re Live Streaming and Recording Classes! #opyathome

As we navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19), Omaha Power Yoga remains committed to supporting your well-being in every way we can. We continue to evaluate our local situation and expert recommendations, and will adjust and adapt accordingly (seeing as how we’re flexible from all the yoga, wink-wink)! Stay tuned to this blog for updates. Email us at info@omahapoweryoga.com with any questions or feedback.

Our Classes

Our classes are scheduled to reduce traffic.  In studio, we ask that you mindfully give each other space. We are adding classes back to our schedule, and continuing to offer live stream and replay options for most of our classes.

We are always working to serve you at our highest and best! We greatly appreciate your understanding and continued support of our beloved studio (especially as we manage the added technical components)! Life and relationships are taking more energy these days, and we are honored to be part of your practice to be skillful and healthy in yours.

Advanced registration is now required for all our classes. No-call-no-shows for in studio reservations will be charged for the missed session – review our cancellation policy.

How to Sign Up for Live Stream Classes

  1. Register in advance for all classes (live-stream and in-studio) via our schedule page or the Mindbody app.
    • Registration for classes now closes 5 minutes prior to class start time.
    • A link to stream will be emailed an hour prior to class from hello@fitgrid.com (check your junk/promotions folder).
  2. Log into the Zoom stream 5–10 minutes prior to class start time
    • If you log in right at (or after) class start time, we cannot help you with technical issues.
    • You will need to download the free Zoom app.
    • You’ll have 2 audio options: Internet/Device Audio or Dial-in. If your internet is slow or “skippy,” the Dial-in option will be less strain on your internet connection.
    • We encourage chatting before & after classes!  Stay muted during class, as background noise will disrupt practice and the recording for folks getting the replay.

How to Sign Up for Replay Classes

Those unable to attend classes at our scheduled times can enjoy our replay option! Here’s how it works…

  1. Register in advance for a live stream class.
  2. We’ll email you a replay link after class (good for up to 1 week).

Taking Precautions In-Studio

As you have noticed, cleanliness has always been a priority, and we are taking extra steps to clean and sanitize. We are taking the following additional steps to keep our space as low risk as possible…

  • With our live stream and replay options, in-studio class sizes are smaller.
  • We adjusted our schedule to reduce traffic between classes.
  • Like always, if you are ill (or have been in contact with someone who is), please stick to live stream classes.
  • Exercise is exempt from wearing a mask since it is harder to breathe while exerting yourself – do what you think is best for you.
  • As usual, wash your hands …with soap.
  • As always, we honor requests for no touching for posture adjustments, svasana, hugs or high fives.
  • Feel free to bring your own props with you.
