SUPERIOR, WI. -- Businesses across Wisconsin are opening up, including gyms and yoga studios.

Opening during a global pandemic is a brand new challenge for Beth Reedy, owner of Vibe and Flow Yoga in Solon Springs.

"May 1st was our grand opening of this studio, so it's been a pretty challenging time," said Reedy.

Even without COVID-19, there are a lot of health and safety protocols in place for businesses like this but now, Reedy has to do even more.

"We are asking to stay six feet apart, we have places marked on the floor for them to position their mats. Of course all of the regular cleaning stuff so bleaching, cleaning the floors, and we don't have any classes back-to-back," added Reedy.

While some yoga studios are opening their doors to their customers, others are choosing to conduct their sessions strictly online.

"I want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row before I open the studio and have people back here," said Kat Warner, owner of Align Yoga in Superior.

Warner said although she isn't opening her doors to customers, she is offering online sessions.

"So we have been on Facebook now since March, so I do three live classes a week, and then we also have a YouTube channel," added Warner.

Warner may wait until Fall before allowing customers back in, with a goal of keeping her clientele as safe and healthy as possible.

"I just want to make sure we have the stickers and the cleaning equipment, everything that we need to have a really nice transition," said Warner.

The studio in Solon Springs is also doing online and outdoor classes for anyone not comfortable going indoors.

Gyms and yoga studios in Minnesota will be allowed to open June 1.
