STUDIO YOGA ANNOUNCEMENT: The Next Chapter


Dearest Studio Yogis and Friends of the The Studio Yoga:

After much thoughtful contemplation, I have decided to close the doors of our beloved Studio this Fall. 

Our last class at The Studio Yoga will be Saturday, September 21st, 2019

The Studio Yoga community has been small but mighty. From our ultra-dedicated students, to our newest members, and to our friends, wherever you find yourself today - we are grateful for the time and energy you’ve shared with us. 

In taking on stewardship of The Studio Yoga in 2013, it was always my intention to continue what Marge and Danielle started over a decade ago. We have offered The Studio Yoga as a safe space for us to come together in breath, movement and fellowship. 

It has been a joy, a privilege, and a duty to help foster the yoga community here. In helping you progress and grow, you’ve helped the teachers and I do the same. We thank you for the opportunity to do so. 

Over the many years, we have held space for each other through major life events, sharing our practice both on - and off - our mats. You have helped make us your neighborhood sanctuary. 

Although we must leave the safety of our cocoon, this does not signify the end of our practice. 

Our teachers and I will continue to teach, lead and offer yoga around the Grand Rapids area. Please stay in touch with us! We will do our best to keep you informed of where we land. 

For those who are interested in establishing a home practice, you’ll be receiving a link this month to continue to practice your yoga from the comfort of your own home.

(To help answer your questions about the details of our closing, please read below the NITTY GRITTY and for those of you who would like to voice your thoughts, feelings or concerns, please reach out - I may be reached at jennephyr@thestudioyoga.com or 616.209.8395.

In the meantime, we are committed to bringing the very best of yoga we have to offer, right up to the last day. We hope you’ll continue to support us - and each other - as we navigate the next phase of this journey.

Class Packages & Purchases

For those who want to continue practicing with us - we are offering a SPECIAL 5-CLASS PASS FOR $45, good for 30 days. The last day to purchase this pass is August 23, 2019.

We are also dropping our single class price to $10 a class for those who want to pay-as-you-go. You may purchase as many of these classes as you’d like, keeping in mind there will be no refunds for unused classes.

The last day we will be taking payment for our autopay memberships (monthly or once-a-week) is August 21st. If you have a membership that renews after the 21st of each month, you will receive notification that your membership is expiring on August 21st. You will be given the option to continue on with us until the end at a reduced rate or to purchase the Special 5-Class Pass.

Students with current class passes that expire after our closing date are encouraged to use them by Sept 21st or (share them with friends) as there will be no refunds for unused classes. 

If you have an account credit, we encourage you to use it before we close as we will not be providing refunds. Not sure where you’re at in your package? Login to your MindBody account here → http://bit.ly/TSYProfile

Please save-the-date! 

Our last class will be Saturday morning, September 21 at 9am. There will be a closing ceremony and light refreshments after class.

If you have an interest in purchasing any of the studio equipment (bolsters, blankets, etc), we will be selling these items immediately following our final class on September 21.

Want to stay in-touch with your favorite teachers? Stay tuned for details of where they can be found and what’s next for each of them.

We are ever grateful to our community, to the founding leaders of The Studio Yoga, the many wonderful teachers who have offered their wisdom and expertise and for the many years of love and support.

It is with a mixture of grief and gratitude that I say...

Until our paths cross again,

Namaste

MID SUMMER STUDIO UPDATE

Hello Studio Yogis!

in case you haven’t noticed, Summer is in full swing - if you haven’t taken a moment to pause and take it all in, give yourself 5 minutes to sit quietly, contemplating the season thus far. Are you taking in ALL that summer has to offer? Farmer’s Markets, Days at the lake and Extra hours of sunshine abound!

As we spend more time away from The Studio in the summer, there are ways you can still practice your yoga. Maybe you take some time to meditate after your early morning walk or set aside a few minutes before bed to practice your chandra bhedana pranayama to help you chill out for a good night’s sleep.

And for those traveling this summer (and those who just can’t drag themselves to class in the summer), we are opening up an online studio portal that you can take with you! Look for an email in the next couple weeks with a link to The Studio Yoga Online.

Summer is busy - we get it :) We are making a few changes to accommodate for this:

1) NEW - GENTLE YOGA @ 6:30pm THURSDAYS - we are combining our two Thursday evening classes into one class that will start at 6:30PM. This class will be lead on rotation by Katie Dunlap and Hollie Longieliere. It’s been awhile since we’ve offered an evening Gentle class - this is the perfect unwind after a long hot summer day! We will return to our regular schedule in the Fall.

2) KEEP AN EYE ON THE SCHEDULE - We are encouraging students to pre-register for classes - We will be canceling classes ONE HOUR PRIOR to class start if there are no students registered for the class.

That’s all for now - Keep on enjoying that beautiful sunshine!

Om Shanti (Peace!)

Give us a thumbs up, if you’re ready for Summer already!

We embrace our summer months here in Michigan and The Studio Yoga supports you in your efforts to get outside and enjoy this time of year with friends and family.

And to support you, we will be tweaking our Summer Schedule for the summer beginning Monday, June 10th.

Please note the following changes to the schedule:

Tuesdays - No 4:30pm class through summer - we will add it back to our schedule in the Fall.

Wednesdays - NEW Sunrise Flow added at 6am - Mornings are optimum time for your yoga practice - join us for Sunrise Flow!

Saturdays - We are offering ONE CLASS ONLY on Saturday mornings at 9am - this is an ALL LEVELS SLOW FLOW class. We will go back to two classes in the Fall.

Of course, we recommend maintaining a regular yoga practice and we’ll be here for you - Let us know how we can help support your yoga practice this summer by email us at info@thestudioyoga.com.
