We are closed…again!
|As you know, we had to close our doors yet again until further notice. It actually feels like we’re breaking up again! This is our fourth break up since the beginning of this global pandemic and breaking up is hard to do. But I will take you all back and we hope you will take us back again too. When the time is right.|
We have been riding this pandemic wave for over a year with the hope that our leaders continue to guide us in the right direction and keep us safe. Not an easy task for sure.
We have been operating in the red zone since November. With the current colour wheel of rules, we will continue with the red zone regulations until we are actually back in the green zone. Moving to the orange and yellow zones changes nothing for us, making it very difficult to sustain any business with such strict measurements.
As a community we need to come together proactively and voice our desire to continue to be healthy in an environment that enhances our physical and mental health while keeping us connected and safe. Much safer than a trip to a big box store.
In order for this to happen, the guidelines for yoga studios would need to change. Lumping us with gyms and sports facilities shows a lack of understanding of what happens in a yoga studio, especially as movement is restricted to the space of our mat, which poses no threat to us nor to those around us while still being able to maintaining safety protocols.
If you wish to share your concerns about the future of our local yoga studios and smaller establishments, please reach out to our local and provincial leaders.

In the meantime, we would like to remind you that we have some yoga videos to help keep your yoga practice going during the lockdown.
We will miss you all. Continue to be kind to yourselves and each other.

May you be well and protected.
May the earth be abundant for those who know the land as sacred.
May the leaders of this land make wise decisions.
May all beings, without exception, know ease.
Peace, peace, peace.
