Dearest Students, Friends, and Family of Jim Thorpe Yoga Studio:
It is with a heavy heart that I am making the announcement that we will be closing the doors of Jim Thorpe Yoga on Thursday, August 1st, 2019.
In the (almost) seven years that we have been in business, we have grown and become one amazing community. All of your support, love, and your presence in our classes, events, and special programs – and in our daily lives – is greatly appreciated.
You have supported us throughout these years through the challenges of running a yoga studio business. We have very recently come up against an obstacle that we, unfortunately, cannot overcome.
On the morning of Wednesday, June 26th, I was given a written notice to vacate in 30 days the space where our yoga center has stood for all of this time. Though I tried to negotiate for a longer transition, the landlord refused.
To be completely open and honest, in the last year, I have recognized my own lack of available time and energy necessary to seeing the yoga center continue to grow. As a remedy, I had recently planned on selling the studio, and actually had a few buyers interested and was making plans to meet with them when I received our notice to vacate. Apparently, the universe has other plans for me.
All of us here at Jim Thorpe Yoga would love to spend these last few weeks in celebration of our many, many hours practicing yoga together.
In the coming weeks, I will send out information about where you can attend classes with our instructors and how you can stay in touch with them, as well as opportunities to practice nearby at Balance Yoga, Boundless Yoga, or Native Yoga studios. Our yoga community is not disappearing, and it is my hope that you continue to feel supported in your practice, just in a different space!
Going forward, all classes will be $12 per person, or $8 for students and seniors (65+). No additional class packages will be sold. All existing packages will be honored until Wednesday, July 31st. Please feel free to share your remaining classes with friends or family. After, July 31st, you will have one additional month to use up any classes left on your pass at either Native Yoga, Balance Yoga, or Boundless Yoga. The owners of these studios have generously offered to honor your class passes at their own yoga homes!
All of us here thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your love and continued support through this transition time. You are very dear in our hearts, and we hope to see many of you frequently over the next several weeks. It has bee such an honor and a blessing to have had the opportunity to offer and share this space and this practice with you all for this long. We’ve had a truly great run!
I look forward to continuing to support you all on your path!
