Dear YogaFish Community,

The past months have brought us all such a mix of emotions as we learn how to deal with social distancing, financial hardships, threats to our health and the stability of our economy and society.

I have been fortunate in my own health and with the support of my family and friends, as I know that others are suffering much more than I am. However, our small business, YogaFish, will not survive the pandemic. 

Our recent loss of income, combined with the challenges of steeply increasing costs year after year, have depleted our savings. This, along with the reality of social distancing in our small space means that there is no viable path forward for the business as is in the wake of Covid-19.

Serving this community has been one of the best experiences in my life, and I know that our teachers feel the same. I am grateful for the time we’ve had together, to work with people I love and to share the practices of yoga and meditation. What began as Grace Yoga, then geoYoga, and finally YogaFish has been a joy, a comfort and a refuge to so many of us in this community.  

We have seen many things change during the 10 years we have grown together. The teachings of yoga remind us that all things are impermanent, and that even within the pain of change we can look forward to unexpected outcomes and new beginnings. I don’t know what the next years will bring, but I am looking forward to being with you in community in new ways.

In the meantime, I want you to know how much you all mean to me, and to our teachers. We have loved our time together, and I feel both deep sadness at having to let go of things as they were as well as heartfelt gratitude for the time we have had together in this special place. So many of you have reached out to ask how you can support and help us during this time, and that has meant so much to me. I appreciate you all more than I can express.

I will continue to teach yoga online and in private sessions. Our teachers may also be teaching in other ways, and they would love to hear from you if you’d like to keep in touch.

Finally, I know that many of you may have purchased passes prior to our unexpected closure that you did not have the benefit of using. While I am simply unable to provide refunds for all unused passes, I am happy to give you access to my new online subscription site as compensation. If this is unsatisfactory to you or if you are in financial hardship, please contact me and I will do my best to help. 

With love and gratitude, 

Laura
