We’re closed for the time being.
I know yoga is one of our best tools for wellness, calmness, steadiness and connectedness that our community and households need right now. A few of you specifically asked me not to close. I understand the need for a supportive community and space to be reminded that we’re okay and will be okay.
Being in the wellness industry, I take everyone’s health very seriously. Being in the yoga sphere, I mean it when I say that we’re all connected. We belong to one another. How we each respond to a global pandemic is not just about our individual needs and rights, but also about our collective responsibilities. And how we respond earlier, rather than later, is crucial.
While the practice of yoga is essential to my well-being, the studio space is not essential for our collective thriving for the next few weeks. Yoga is important but not essential right now. My conscious will not let me remain open. Sometimes, we need told what to do, especially when it’s hard. (How many of you won’t go to child’s pose and rest until I ask it of you? Then, yes, I’m talking to you.) This is me telling you: stay home.
That said, I’m working with all the technology I can get my hands on to try to offer you either live-streamed classes or a collection of pre-recorded practices to work with at home. Once this is available I’ll be sending out a text/email alert with details, so keep your eyes open.
I’m not sure how long this will take. I’m not sure when I’ll feel good about re-opening. I’m listening to the science and my heart to know I need to close; I’m hoping the science and my heart will inform me when it’s safe to open. As always, I’m open to questions, comments, concerns and conversation about navigating these challenges.
