The COVID-19 pandemic forced many small businesses, restaurants, and fitness studios to temporarily close their doors as they addressed what was needed to operate under new safety guidelines on the local, state, and national levels. These guidelines include important measures to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2, such as social distancing, improving indoor air quality, and mask-wearing. Now, even with the ongoing vaccine rollout and restrictions being lifted, some people are still unsure about leaving the well-known bubble of their home.
For fitness studios that are breath-based - yoga specifically - owners know increased cleanliness is the key to help practitioners feel comfortable returning to classes. No matter how clean a studio is kept, the current pandemic takes the necessity for cleanliness to a new level. Stephanie Paolini, the owner of 3 Bridges Yoga in Portsmouth, NH, and York, Maine, has experienced this firsthand. Once Stephanie was able to reopen her yoga studio, she knew she wanted to make it as clean as possible to instill a sense of confidence in her clients and staff. One part of her reopening strategy was to add the Celios G200 Advanced Air Purifier to keep the air in the studio clean.
