COVID-19 Response

Please take a moment to read our policies before coming to the studio

We have put careful consideration and planning into creating a new Create Power Yoga standard for our practice together. We have always been dedicated to the cleanliness of our studios and the safety of our community. We will now take this commitment to a higher level. We are aware that some of these policies may sound harsh, but they reflect what is currently necessary for us to run classes and keep everyone safe. Thank you for your understanding.

As of September 25, 2021, we will require one-time proof of vaccination for all students taking in-person classes.


  • E-mail us with a photo of your vaccination card
  • Bring your vaccination card to the studio on your next visit
  • Show us a photo of your vaccination card on your phone on your next visit
  • Please do not text us a photo of your card - our text system does not accept photos


If you are partially vaccinated, please send us proof of your first dose.
Partially vaccinated students will have until October 20 to supply proof of a second dose.
Please wear a mask until fully vaccinated.


  • Please email us with any questions regarding memberships and class passes.
  • You are welcome to join us any time in our on-demand virtual studio to continue your yoga practice. Please email us if you need any help setting up your virtual access.

Thank you for supporting us, understanding the difficult and thoughtful decisions we make as  business owners, and helping to keep our community safe and healthy.

Here is what to expect in our studio

Our team uses a powerful EPA-registered disinfectant proven to kill viruses in all common areas and on all high-touch surfaces - from door handles to chair seats to the water cooler - after each class.

We continue our commitment to cleaners that do not leave chemical residues. Our EPA-registered cleaning products will be hydrogen peroxide or alcohol based, powerfully disinfecting while leaving only water and oxygen in their wake.

AIR CLEANING: We clean the air during classes with a hydroxyl generator, which safely and effectively eliminates virus and bacteria particles in the air while we practice. In addition, our entire space is cleaned every night using an Ozone Generator. These steps help ensure the cleanliness of our air and surfaces.

MASK REQUIREMENT. Updated May 21, 2021 - Students who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask. Students who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a mask at all times while in the studio.

REDUCED CLASS SIZES. Our class sizes reflect the most current CDC and Rhode Island State guidelines for capacity and social distancing.

WE REQUIRE PRE-REGISTRATION AND PRE-PAYMENT for classes to ensure a hands-free check in and reduce bottlenecks in our lobby. Pre-registration and payment can be done on our Create Power Yoga app or through our website schedule. You must pre-register by 20-minutes prior to your class.

CANCELLATION POLICY & FEES. Due to more limited class space, we will now have a 6-hour cancellation policy - please cancel at least 6 hours in advance if you are unable to attend class.
Read our full cancellation policy here.

NO LATE ARRIVALS. We will cannot allow for late arrivals for class, to make sure we can keep social distancing in the studio room by limiting movement through the room once class begins. Please arrive before class begins. Our door will be locked when class starts, and you will be charged a no-show penalty if you have not yet arrived.
Read our full cancellation policy here.

TOUCHLESS TRANSACTIONS. All students are required to have a credit card on file for touchless in-studio purchases. We do not accept cash at this time.

NEW $7 COMMUNITY CLASSES have been added to the schedule, in recognition of the economic impact of this health crisis. Check our schedule for their times and types. Note: Pre-registration and pre-payment will now be required for these classes, per our new touchless transaction policy.

What you can do to help keep our community healthy

PRE-REGISTER for class on our website or the Create Power Yoga app. This will ensure your spot in class. Waitlists for classes will also be enabled. You must pre-register by 20-minutes prior to your class.

MASK UP.  Updated May 21, 2021 - Students who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask. Students who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a mask at all times while in the studio.

BRING A TOWEL for your use during class, and to wipe down your mat afterward. We will have disinfectant spray for your mat but will no longer provide towels or sponges for wiping down.

ARRIVE ON TIME. To make sure we can keep social distancing in the studio room by limiting movement through the room once class begins, we will no longer be able to allow late arrivals for class. Please arrive before class begins. Our door will be locked when class starts, and you will be charged a no-show penalty if you have not yet arrived.

IF YOU'RE SICK, STAY HOME. If you have a fever, cough or other symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to the studio until you’re symptom and fever-free for three days. If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or have knowingly come into contact with someone with COVID-19, we ask that you do not come to the studio for 14 days or until you test negative for COVID-19. If you feel unwell or have any concerns about your health, please stay home and stay safe. We’ll happily welcome you back when you feel healthy and safe again.

Staying Virtual

Our Virtual Studio is a permanent part of our studio’s offerings. We recognize that some students simply feel more comfortable practicing at home right now, and will continue to give you all the tools to do that.

Monthly Unlimited autopay members have unlimited access to our Virtual Studio, giving tremendous new value to membership.

Students with class packages or who use drop-in classes can easily supplement your in-studio practice with a Virtual Studio membership to increase how often you can practice.

Virtual membership ($20/month) gives you unlimited access to classes, kid’s classes, meditations, and tutorials. This platform allows you to take classes with CPY anywhere, any time. All classes are recorded so that you can practice when it fits your schedule. Classes also vary in length from 15- to 75-minutes, to fit into your day.

Moving Forward

We are taking every action to keep our CPY community safe and healthy.

As time moves forward, our policies will be updated to reflect the most up-to-date CDC recommendations as well as state and federal government requirements.

Whether you plan to join us back in the studio or would prefer to stay home and practice with us virtually, we are here for you. Please reach out with any questions at

We are awed by and proud of our community. We have seen what we have always known - that we are stronger when we stick together and raise each other up. While our practice may look and feel a little different than before, we can be empowered by the strength we have shown and the resiliency that we have found.

What our students are saying...

I highly recommend Create Power Yoga! The prices are affordable compared to other yoga studios in the area. Vinyasa is their most popular class and it is a great workout. The staff is always helpful and welcoming, especially for beginners who are hesitant to try a class.

I am a senior and have been going here since 2015. It is amazing how good you feel after class and there is no judging by the instructors or your classmates. Everyone should try at least once. You leave relaxed and limber. And in this stressful environment, you leave with a peaceful and hopeful mind.

My favorite place in the whole wide world. Its the only place I can go and truly feel at peace. I love the new "pop-up classes" and the owner is always going above and beyond to create new adventures for their members. The staff is so super awesome and genuinely caring about your well being. I'm a big fan!

I have been taking classes at Create Power Yoga for a few weeks now and I absolutely love it. The heated classes are the perfect balance of stretch and strength. Breath is emphasized in class. I've never heard so many yogis ujjayi breathing in one place, it is beautiful. I would definitely recommend this studio to anyone looking for some heat and a challenge.

I have practiced yoga in the hot studio for the past year and am thrilled with the move to Newport Ave (within walking distance). At the age of 63 with very mixed abilities, i have been warmly welcomed, encouraged, and guided. Yoga has been very beneficial to me and I am sure you could benefit, too!

I had never taken a yoga class before I tried CPY, but now I don't know why I went so long without trying. It's so relaxing it's hard to believe you're working out! The yoga instructors focus on your breathing, so you are relaxed the entire time! I'm hooked. The instructors at CPY clearly very passionate about what they are teaching and care about how everyone is doing in the class. I can't imagine going to another yoga studio. CPY is perfect for all ages and experience! You have to come check out this studio. It'll change the way you see yoga (I know it did for me).

I've practiced in a lot of different studios, and I've rarely found one as warm and welcoming as Create Power Yoga.

The owners are wonderfully nice and there's always someone who remembers you and says hello. The teachers are fantastic and really interested in creating a good experience for you. The heated studio/hot yoga is perfect for feeling like you are really getting a workout (and it's a great respite from the cold during the winter). It's takes a lot to convince me to go to the gym, but I look forward to coming to this studio to do yoga a few times a week! Also, I would highly recommend this place to someone who is less comfortable with their skill level- there is a great mix of people and the teachers are great about helping (but not pushing too hard), so even I feel comfortable, even though my inverted-something-twisting-pose isn't exactly fitness model worthy.
