Our policies and procedures help ensure that we are able to assist you in your fitness, well-being and safety.
COVID-19 Related Protocol
Body Moves relies on reports and guidelines from credible agencies in deciding protocol for safety during the COVID-19 pandemic era. Such agencies include the WHO, the CDC, Iowa Department of Health and fitness professional associations. As recommendations from these agencies change, Body Moves adapts its protocol to help protect students, instructors and the broader community.
During the COVID-19 pandemic era, Body Moves students and instructors will:
- Wear face coverings while in the studio.
- Practice frequent soap-and-water handwashing.
- Maintain 6-foot distancing among others in the studio.
- Use alcohol-based disinfectant on hands upon entering and leaving the studio.
- Have forehead temperature taken upon entering the studio.
- Use alcohol-based disinfectant on surfaces touched during classes and workouts.
- May wear vinyl gloves provided by the studio during classes and workouts that require the use of equipment.
- Yoga and body sculpt students are encouraged to bring their own mats, blankets, bolsters, hand weights and resistance tubes.
- Street shoes are not permitted in the movement rooms. Many classes are designed for bare feet. If you need to wear shoes, then wear light-weight, soft-soled, non-marking shoes dedicated for indoor-only use.Personal belongings are not allowed in the movement rooms other than equipment needed for the event.
- Stay at home if you have flu-like symptoms. Rest, recover, and prevent the spread of virus.
- We strongly recommend that individuals receive the COVID-19 vaccine as it becomes available.
The studio continues pre-COVID-19 era protocol of daily moping, restroom cleaning, surface cleaning between classes and events with disinfectant of commonly touched hard surfaces, and the use of disposable paper products. Air-flow measures are employed during classes and workouts.
