Is Fire Shaper following Covid-19 recommended safety guidelines?
YES. Fire Shaper is following the exact recommendations set out by NJ Government Legislation and Read More
we have added additional cleanliness and hygiene features into our studios and our cleaning protocols to better protect our members. Your safety is important to us and you will find that our students are socially distanced by the recommended 6 foot spacing and in some cases even further than that. At Fire Shaper we have Commercial grade UV lighting in our heat system which kills 99.99% of all airborne germs. We are treating our Fire Shaper studios with an EPA-approved antiviral solution. This breakthrough coating provides enhanced protection by the sustained killing of 99.9% of viruses, including coronaviruses, on surfaces.
How it works: When sprayed on surfaces, the cleaner forms an invisible, long-lasting barrier that physically breaks down and kills virus cells. A similar type of solution is already being used in hospitals due to its proven effectiveness to reduce the spread of infection. The highly durable coating remains effective even on high-touch surfaces like our flooring, bathroom surfaces and door handles. Through frequent cleanings, which we do after every class, Fire Shaper ensures your safety is our first priority.
How do I prepare? What do I need to bring?

during our pandemic recovery we have certain policies in place to keep your safety at the top of the list. Hence, we are not renting mats or towels and since both mats and towels are necessary to practice at Fire Shaper you must bring these along with you. As frustrating as it is for you and for us, if you do not bring these items with you then you may not be able to practice. Our studios do often carry a selection of mats and towels for purchase however, we cannot guarantee that we will have adequate stock at the time of your visit. So, please come prepared.
Do you require masks to be worn?
At this stage of recovery a mask is no longer mandated to be worn. Students may opt Read More

viruses enter through your skin or your pores. However, hygiene is extremely important to us.
