Special Message from abilitYoga President about Tele-abilitYoga and COVID-19

In light of what is happening with COVID-19 situation in our area and to support the practice of social distancing, abilitYoga is planning to provide Tele-abilitYoga as an alternate method to studio and in-home yoga sessions. Please be assured that the Tele-abilitYoga approach will continue to meet the same yoga outcomes. Note also that the approach will meet HIPAA security and privacy compliance, as well as other state and federal regulations.

It doesn't hurt to repeat what we already know how to stop the spread of germs:
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; dry hands with a clean towel or air dry hands. 
  • https://washyourlyrics.com/
    • Go to the above page and fill the form with Title & Author and you'll have your favorite song to sing while you wash your hands with soap or hand sanitizer (great for kids, but not just for them!)
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol content) when soap and water are unavailable. 
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue or elbow/upper sleeve when sneezing or coughing; throw the tissue away and then wash or sanitize your hands. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick. 
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick. 
  • Clean and disinfect “high-touch” surfaces often (i.e., counters, phones, computer keyboards, as well as door, faucet and toilet handles).
abilitYoga continues to advocate for healthy living habits:

1. Sleep well.
2. Eat healthy foods whenever possible.
3. Exercise and stay active.
4. Hydrate as appropriate.
5. Promote clean living habits.
