Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have some new guidelines and rules for those booking a session with us.
We are unfortunately not doing any public events, or Suspension Sundays for the foreseeable future. We are however, happy to start helping you get in the air in a private setting again. We have always loved intimate sessions, so not much has changed in that respect, but our requisites for booking a session have been adjusted to a more complex set.
Following are our new guidelines and rules for booking with us.
Firstly, and most importantly, we are currently requiring anyone that is going to be suspending with us to get a COVID-19 test, at least 2 days prior to suspending with us. PCR and/or Rapid testing is accepted, and you will have to show us a copy proving your negative test results prior to showing up, and bring it with you. We will be operating in good faith that in that time after the test, you will do your best to avoid being in close proximity with others in public.
We kindly ask that after getting your test you isolate as much as humanly possible until your session with us, out of safety and respect for everybody involved.
Please also be aware that we are prioritizing inquiries that are local to NYC. If you are coming from states surrounding New York City, you will need to come to NYC in advance, quarantine for 3 days in NYC, and then get tested. If you are coming from states further away, we may decline your submission.
If you pop positive on your results, please let us know, and we will of course reschedule free of charge. We will only reschedule dates that are at the minimum 15 days from your test dates.
Secondly, we will require your guest to also get a test, and also provide proof of negative results in the same way that you are required to. We are not allowed to bring more than one (1) guest with you to your session. On our end, there will be no more than 2 or 3 practitioners present.
If you or your guest begin exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 after you receive test results, please let us know immediately, and we will reschedule your session at no extra fee. Please do not come to our studio if you are showing any symptoms of illness at all.
Third, all people present will be required to stay masked up throughout the entire session. This means that you, your guest, and our group practitioners will all be masked up for the duration of our time together.
Please wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose properly, as well as your chin, and creates a tight seal around your cheeks. For acceptable masks, please see this resource by the CDC:
If you walk in with a mask that we decide is not acceptable, we will absolutely provide you a medical mask for you to wear throughout the session. It will most likely be black and look really cool. We are fans of double-masking, but it is not mandatory. Please don’t show up with just a gaiter.

If you and your guest have been vaccinated (including +2 weeks past second dose), you can provide your vaccination paperwork, and suspend mask-free if you are not exhibiting any symptoms of sickness. Our group is vaccinated in full as of May 2021.
Next, we will not be suspending individuals in complex positions; our list of available positions are limited to:
- Upper back suspensions (formerly referred to as “suicide” suspensions)
- "Angel" suspensions - ~3 pairs of hooks spread across the back vertically
- “Resurrection” suspensions - 2 or 4 points (stomach/abdominal area)
- Knee suspensions
- Elbow/forearm suspensions
- Lotus (sitting cross legged)
- Superperson (horizontal)
We are not allowing chest suspensions because of the importance of breathing for this position, and how restricted your lungs may feel in conjunction with how wearing a mask may impact your breathing. We are also taking into account the intensity of this position, and how wearing a mask may affect your experience negatively.
If you are fully vaccinated, you can suspend in any position you an think of.
Lastly, we have a lot of minutiae in regards to comfort, safety, and better communication during your session, which we will hash out with you once you have signed up and booked a session with us.
