This new monthly workshop series will take you on a deep dive into the energy channel’s of your body, each session exploring the nature and meaning of each of the seven Chakras, using the Japanese healing technique known as Reiki.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: PLEASE REFER TO ANY UPDATED GOVERNOR MANDATES OUR MOST UP TO DATE POLICIES AS THESE CHANGE RAPIDLY.

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.
