Updated HYA Policy for Delta Covid 19 Variant

By | Blog



Supporting Our Greater Community 💚

Updated studio policy for HYA as of August 3, 2021

While Buncombe County is in a state of high transmission and for the safety of our community – to help mitigate the spread of the new delta variant – we will now be requiring masks indoors at all times (for vaccinated and unvaccinated folks.)

To learn more about this challenging decision keep reading.


We all knew it was a matter of time…🥴

And you must know we are in a pickle of a situation. There is no perfect solution that will make everyone happy.

“To mask or Not to mask?” that is the question. 

Alas, here we are … again. 😷

The level of community transmission in Buncombe county has now jumped to HIGH risk. See Covid Data Tracker for current stats.

Our greatest hope was that by now we would be out of the woods and out the other side of this pandemic.

I would love to imagine an idyllic reality where Covid is not happening at all, we bask in the sun with rainbows and unicorns 24/7, as well as have open hamstrings and never ending vegan chocolate that ends hormonal fluctuations…  and … oh…how about no global climate change, no extinction of animals and free Bitcoin for all!

One Year Later… How the Pandemic Changed Everything and Nothing

By | Blog

It was a year ago today – with the hope of flattening the curve – we shut our indoor facilities at HYA. In fact, we closed our doors one day before the official mandate in NC because we could see what was happening and wanted to do our part in protecting our loved ones and you. We also wanted to be ready to continue providing you high quality services without missing a beat.

Remember that? We were so naive to think we would only be closed for one week, maybe two weeks max!?! Ha!

Updated Policies

By | Blog

Hi Adi,

What we love about you the most is your dedication to your practice and HYA. It inspires us to do more and our goal is that everyone gets a chance to practice. We envision a world where everyone is empowered to live their best life – and we know yoga is an amazing way to make this happen.

With current limited capacities (30%) it can be a challenge to coordinate the schedule and get everyone into class -But it’s nothing we can’t handle if we work together! 🥴

Our goal is to continue to expand our offerings, and utilize the overflow room more often, however in order to get accurate data to make these decisions, we need your help.

Note: Up until now we have been very lenient with these policies. However, in order to create a sustainable schedule, we need to enforce this policy with consistency moving forward.

Sooo… Moving forward, here’s the scoop:

Please adhere to and support our updated policies.

(Drum role please!)

We are so grateful that we’ve made it through our closure and have classes again, and it’s so good to be back! We aren’t out of the woods yet. Reopening means increased overhead and rebuilding and restaffing of everything we worked tirelessly to create since 2008. We are doing what we love and so grateful we are here because of people like you.

We are reaching out to fill you in on some behind the scene details in the hopes to help ease any scheduling concerns you may have.

HYA Re-Opening Guidelines

By | Blog



Our yogis are our family. Because of this, we must take care of you. So, when we sat down to put new safety measures in place, we went above and beyond the recommended CDC Guidelines. Keep scrolling to see the logistics of our new plan. Keep in mind, this is just a start. As we learn more, we’ll be constantly fine-tuning and updating our rules and regulations as we go.
