Social Distancing

Given the current situation with Covid-19 virus and what we now know about it (is more deadly than regular flu and up to 15% who get sick will need hospitalization, for every 1 confirmed positive there are 10-50 others who also actually have it – and may not know it yet – and without social isolation are spreading it, without social distancing everyone who has it spreads it to at least 2.5 others and infection rate doubles every 3 days so becomes exponential in just a couple of weeks) our most effective action to slow the spread and effect of Covid-19 is intense and strict Social Distancing. Since Monday March 16, all yoga, group sessions and individual appointments at the Iris Center and Dr. Cook’s practice have been cancelled. We have begun offering these individual appointments through video conferencing on Zoom and also for some by telephone. We are looking into how we might continue to provide some of the group sessions by Zoom as well.

If you are feeling unsettled and overly distressed and would like some help please feel free to call the office, 452-7116, or email, info@iriscenter, for assistance.

Please continue to check our What’s New post for further information and updates. In the meanwhile, soft belly breathe to help you feel settled, be responsible, think of others and take good care of yourself.

Cheers

No Maintenance Session tonight

Hi All,

Don’t want to spread what I might be coming down with so we’ll skip SCMP for tonight and look forward to next month as usual on 2nd and 4th Mondays.

Take some time to practice anyway 😉

Cheers, Bill

Yoga with Bill Jan. 26th Cancelled

Hi All,

Seems we are to get significant freezing rain overnight and all morning tomorrow so prudence and wisdom lean toward no class tomorrow once again 🙁 … Look forward to seeing you next Sunday and encourage you to take some time for yourself tomorrow.

Namaste, Bill
