Important Notice

Unfortunately, Premajyothi has contracted Covid, and even more concerning, has potentially threatened the health of teachers and students she interacted with last week.

We must cancel all morning classes this week, Wednesday’s Chair Yoga Class, as well as Monday and Tuesday evening classes, as these were the “only” classes she interacted with.

If you attended any of these classes, please seriously consider scheduling yourself for a PCR Test and quarantine yourself until you know for sure you tested negative. Please follow guidelines as to when is an accurate time for testing, following potential exposure.

The Institute will undergo a complete Disinfecting Operation.
