Membership status during the Coronavirus closure, Bonus for members!
During the State mandated closure of Soma Cura, we are giving people who are members a choice about what to do with their memberships.
We expect this closure to last for several more weeks, but not much longer than that. Based on this expectation, we are instituting the following policy for memberships. If it goes much longer than this time frame, we may have to revisit this plan.
First, all memberships with time deadlines, (Yoga memberships and salt room memberships) were paused as of March 16. Any time you had left on a month would be restarted once we are open again. So for example, if you had a yoga membership that had 15 days left on your most recent month, when we re-open, you will have 15 days left on the month you were working on. You will lose no time you have paid for.
Second, billing for memberships will continue unless you request that it be suspended. Any services purchased during the time we are closed will go on account to be used when we are open again. We will not expire any services on member accounts that are continued through the closure.. For those of you that can afford to do this, we sincerely appreciate the support during this stressful and difficult period.
SPECIAL BONUS FOR MEMBERSHIPS MAINTAINED OR STARTED DURING THE CLOSURE
If you maintain or start your membership during the closure on its existing autopay schedule, you will receive the following three benefits:
1. Unlimited use of our streaming Yoga classes, both live and pre-recorded (this is for Yoga, massage, salt or CLUB members).
2. A free salt room visit each time you are billed during the closure.
3. $10 bonus on your account for each time you are billed during the closure.
If you need to suspend your membership for your own circumstances, we completely understand. Please just let us know by e-mail (email@example.com) or call us @716-773-1369. We will suspend your membership and you may restart it when you are able to..
We hope you and your family and friends are happy, safe and free from harm. We look forward to the day when we can again share a Yoga room with you, provide you a massage or salt visit, and otherwise rejoin our previous community.

3.20.20 Soma Cura to be closed until further notice. Yoga now available on-line
On Monday, March 16, the Governor ordered all Gyms to be closed until further notice.
On Friday, March 20, the Governor ordered all personal service Companies (salons, spas, etc.).
To be in compliance with this and to be good citizens, Soma Cura has decided to shut down completely until further notice.
We will give you updates as we have them, but for now we are following the guidance of authorities trying to do our part to slow the speed of the spread of the Coronavirus.
Yoga classes have been made available online and we will be enhancing that in the days and weeks to come.
Be safe. We will get to the other side of this, and we will shortly find ourselves on a Yoga mat under a tree in a park in July, listening to our favorite Soma Cura instructors.

March 16, 2020 Update on Covid 19 response
Hello Soma Cura Community,
Since our opening in 2012, the hygiene of the studio and health and safety of our clients, staff and community have always been a top priority at Soma Cura. It will always be the case.
The rapidly changing landscape of the response to the “Covid-19” virus has forced Soma Cura to make some difficult changes to our previous plans to respond to the virus. These changes are to do our part to encourage people to respect the “social distancing” suggestions of the CDC to limit the rate of the transmission of the virus.
Effective today, Monday, March 16, 2020 we will be cancelling all scheduled group Yoga classes for the week of March 16-22. We will update this time-line as we better understand the circumstances.
We expect to have classes taught by our Soma Cura instructors made available online by the end of the day today that Soma Cura yoga members can stream on their phones, computers and tablet. We will e-mail information and appropriate links to for these classes as they are ready. If you have questions about this, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scheduled massage clients will still be seen and we are continuing to operate our massage schedule, though we may be limiting the times of day we offer treatments. We will make sure to do all we can to maximize the social distancing between our staff and the clients as they arrive at the wellness center.
Our massage therapists will continue the same regiments we always have to ensure that the treatment and treatment rooms are as clean and hygienic as possible. This has always included; changing all linens for each treatment, therapists thoroughly washing hands and arms between each treatment and laundering of all linens at a high temperature. We will be even more vigilant than we have always been in cleaning common areas.
We will continue to offer salt treatments but we will limit the treatment room to just one person until further notice.
Thank you for your understanding during this stressful period.
Please use your mindful, common-sense in making choices.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call the studio at 716-773-1369.
