Dear Students –
It is with mixed emotions and after much consideration that we have decided to close Twisted Trunk Yoga at the end of March 2017. This was a difficult decision for both of us. We have come to the end of our lease; this natural ending, plus the economics of the business as well as our desire to make shifts in our existing lives have all contributed to this decision.
We have heard time and again that our studio is unique – and this has been both our asset and liability. Whether you are a relatively new member of our community or a long-time Virayoga student, it would mean the world to us for you to spend these last two months with us.Your presence is the whole reason we decided to open Twisted Trunk Yoga. Your presence is so valued as we come to completion.
What this Means for You
We will continue to hold regularly scheduled classes and workshops through the end of March. We have secured workshop dates with our most treasured teachers including Douglas Brooks, Brenda Villa, and many of the talented teachers from our schedule. Check out the workshop page and sign up for these final workshops.
As we have started sharing this news many students have asked what does this mean for them going forward? And what can they do to support and honor the space and their teachers? We appreciate both of those questions.
First, because you were the reason we opened the studio to start, the highest honor you could offer, would be to continue to take class, enjoy the workshops, be present with each other, and honor our shared journey thru the end of March.
Second, we have reached out to some of our most trusted yoga studios to help you connect to a new home studio. Several have offered generously for our community, and more will be announced as soon as possible. As of now:
Abhaya Yoga will be offering Twisted Trunk Yoga students one FREE week of yoga during the month of April.
Kula Yoga will be offering 3 FREE classes, to be used at all 3 Kula locations. Offer must be activated between April 1-15, 1 week expiration.
World Yoga Center will be offering 8 days of FREE unlimited classes, including meditation and speciality classes, valid through March 31, 2018.
Current students may take advantage of any and all of these offers. Information on how to redeem will be available at the studio before and after class. In addition we will send out the websites and teaching schedules of all of our current teachers.
We have learned from our teachers that yoga is all about engagement – how, in what ways and with whom do you interact with the world. For us yoga has never been about how you look on your mat but who you are as a person. This is the yoga that we continue to envision and support and we will do our best to connect you with your teachers and each other over the next few weeks.
With love and gratitude,
Dana and Laura
