As of October 1, 2021

The SYVC-LA health and safety protocols fully comply with the Centers for Disease Control and the LA County Department of Public Health. The health, safety, and protection of our Students and Staff is our top priority. Our Staff are trained on all health and safety protocols and are required to be vaccinated or participate in a regular testing protocol.

These guidelines will evolve. Please check back for updates.



To ensure the safety of Students and Staff, SYVC-LA requires all Students to show proof of vaccination on arrival. 

Temporarily, SYVC-LA does not accept non-vaccinated Students.



SYVC-LA has been offering on-site classes, courses and workshops since July 3, 2021. Onsite sessions may take place indoors or outdoors. Online options remain.

To manage attendance and minimize in-person interactions, Students must pre-register and pre-pay for services online before arrival at the Center. We currently do not accept drop-ins to Yoga class.



All Students and Staff are required to wear properly-fitted face masks covering mouth and nose at designated locations while on the SYVC-LA property. Currently this includes indoor activities and when it is not possible to maintain six feet physical distance from others when outdoors.

Face coverings are not required when eating or drinking or in private spaces.

Our teachers wear face masks if class is held indoors. Teachers will not adjust Students at this time.



All Students and Staff must remain at least 6 feet apart. This includes during satsang, asana class, courses, workshops and any other activities at the Center—whether inside or outdoors.



YOGA CLASSES – Yoga classes are offered outdoors when possible for a maximum of 10 Students. Indoor Yoga classes with appropriately-spaced mats accommodate a maximum of 8 Students. SYVC-LA will not provide Yoga mats, meditation cushions, blankets and/or towels. Please be sure to bring what you need.

SATSANG / WORKSHOPS – Satsangs and Workshops will take place outdoors, when possible. Seating in Satsang and workshops will be designated at least 6 feet apart. Face masks are required for chanting indoors.

AYURVEDA – Body treatments are available indoors. Therapist is vaccinated and wears a face mask. Guests booking Ayurvedic services must be vaccinated and need not wear a face mask during treatment.

BOUTIQUE – We recommend purchasing from our online store for pick-up or we can ship as you designate.

Hand sanitizer is provided in all classrooms and common spaces for easy access.


SYVC-LA is not serving meals at this time. No Student should enter the Center’s kitchen for any reason. On any occasion that a snack is available, it will be offered to you directly by a Staff member.

Please bring your own water bottle.



Common areas, practice spaces, and public restrooms are cleaned and sanitized regularly. 

There is an increased frequency of cleaning and sanitizing in all public spaces with an emphasis on high-touch surfaces.



Safety and PPE will be provided for karma yogis according to the activity.
