Dear Embody Yoga community:
In light of COVID-19 and the state guidelines for social distancing, I have decided to suspend all in person classes and workshops beginning March 18th until May . After days of deliberating, meditating, praying and talking to many of you, I have come to the conclusion that this is the best and most ethical and responsible response, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. I have picked these dates as they correlate to the state school closure, however, please recognize this is a very fluid situation and reopen date may be subject to change.
After talking to many of you, I have also come to the conclusion that now is not the time to suspend all yoga. In response to community need and desire I will be creating as much video yoga & pilates content as I can. All unlimited members will be able to access this content via a private facebook group as well as have unlimited access to all online zoom classes. If you are not an unlimited member you will be able to participate in online classes via zoom using your existing class package or purchasing drop-in classes same as before.
Even after the studio reopens, I'm planning to continue the online classes in the facebook group as an added benefit to those unlimited members who stay with me and to those who sign up during this time. I know many of you in the past have asked for video content in order to practice at home when you can't get to the studio. So I guess something positive is coming from this!!!
I would also like to ask for your help. If you currently have an unlimited membership please consider keeping it through this transition. Myself and my staff will work as hard as we can to offer the video content you need and request. I know this virus will be taking a toll on all of us so if you can't afford to keep your membership I understand.
I will do my best to stay connected with you all and keep our amazing yoga community alive and well through this difficult time. If you are on social media I would greatly appreciate you spreading the word about our online classes and who knows maybe this will bring us even more of us together!!!
I will be reaching out to all of our current members to get you added to the facebook group. If you don't hear from me within a day or two please reach out to me, I don't want to leave anyone behind! Please know that this facebook group is a place to share and stay connected so feel free to post any comments or feedback you have. It will be set up as a closed group, so only members will see content.
Thank you all so much for your support and for making this an amazing yoga community, I absolutely can't do it without you. I will keep you posted as updates arise.
With much love and gratitude,
Lea Ann Schneider
