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 email@example.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.

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,
