Covid Policy

We would like everyone to feel safe, comfortable, and supported. Our in-house policies continue to evolve as CDC guidelines and NYS requirements change.

Update: November 23, 2021: ERIE COUNTY INDOOR MASK MANDATE – Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz announced a mask mandate for all indoor public locations in Erie County regardless of vaccination status. Effective Tuesday, November 22, 2021. Masks are now required in the building and during class regardless of your vaccination status until further notice. Thank you for your patience and understanding. -HIB

As of September 2021:

Masks are required in the building. Proof of COVID vaccination is necessary if you wish to remove your mask within the classroom. Room capacities are limited to ensure additional space for students. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

We have lower in-person class capacity limits in place so that all students can maintain comfortable spacing. We are also running fewer in-person classes to help lessen the amount of people who are in the building at one time. We continue to observe thorough cleaning practices.

In-person classes that fill up have a wait list. If you are unable to attend your scheduled in-person class, we ask that you please let us know so that someone else may have the opportunity to attend. If you do not feel well, please stay home and consider joining us via Zoom.

Please bring your own yoga mat. Props are available for use, but we strongly encourage you to bring your own whenever possible.

Staff members at HIB are fully vaccinated, and we are delighted to welcome you back!
