Atlas Pilates Studio is Open!
Washington State is in Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery Plan. This means we’re teaching multiple Semi-Privates and Privates in the studio at the same time. We’re permitted to have 24 people in the studio, but for the time being we’re keeping our maximum at 12. In reality, you can expect maybe two teachers and four clients at most during the busiest hours.
We’ll continue to keep the apparatus spaced apart more than usual to help ensure safe distancing. We still require face masks (we have new surgical masks available at the front desk in case your forget yours), frequent hand washing and ask you to maintain social distance whenever possible.
We’re not providing paper cups or cotton towels, and ask that you arrive suited-up in your workout clothes and refrain from using the dressing rooms for a little while longer.
The Front Desk remains closed. We’re going to continue to do scheduling online and payments with Paypal. Dominique and Teresa are available via email: firstname.lastname@example.org to help with appointments and payments.
Please watch this Safety briefing before returning to the studio:
