Dear Pacific Yew Yoga Community,
We would like to send you gratitude for being a part of our community and sharing your lives with us and for supporting us in so many ways for the two and half years. We are saddened to let you know that we will be closing our doors starting May 3.
We will be ending our online classes and as businesses begin to re-open in Albany we will not be joining them.
That being said those of you that have memberships we have put those memberships on hold. If you were recently charged and you need a refund please let us know and we will surely take care of that. Those of you with a Samaritan pass we will reimburse you for the amount of money owed back to you for the months we will no longer be open. Those of you that have the Compass Pass please contact us if you would like a reimbursement for the classes that you have remaining on your pass that have not expired and we will get that reimbursement sent out to you as soon as possible. We only ask that you be patient as we work through the steps of closing our doors.
We want you all to know that we want to close the studio with the intention of our community feeling like you were taken care of. As these times of spending more time with ourselves in our homes and some of your working in operations to support our world, the change has affected us all. If you are feeling overwhelmed and disconnected take a moment to visualize being joined in a way we have never been before as we share this universal experience together all over the world. Our team cares for teach of you and want you to know we extend our love to each of you during this time and always.
As we close our doors, please do not hesitate to let us know if you have been missed in our reimbursements or if there is anything else we can do to support you during this closing. For some of you this will be a big change to no longer have the studio space to attend. For those people know that we will continue to find ways to get together and support one another in our community.
If you have been attending Piyo and/or Barre here at the studio, Jessica Parker has an online business where she teaches these classes from her home. Feel free to join her membership and take part in those classes. Also, if you have enjoyed the online yoga classes we have offered here at Pacific Yew, Ana Varas will be opening her own online yoga teaching business beginning this next week so don’t hesitate to contact Ana and join in on her new adventure. Also, Rose Kress has online business as well and she offers online classes and YouTube classes and she also does trainings so if you enjoy Rose’s classes don’t hesitate to contact her as well. Also, I highly recommend LiveWell Yoga studio in Corvallis. We have several teachers that teach there. Check out their schedule and you will find Jessica Morrison, Donna Kannan, Ana Varas, Barry Glassman as well as other great yoga instructors. Also as Samfit begins to open Ana Varas, Kelsey Elliot, and Katy Rosecrans, Vanessa Rusch and Kimberly Heiner also will be teaching there.
There are also other great opportunities to continue your yoga practice or fitness classes. Love yoga studio is here in Albany and offers a variety of classes, if you’re looking for a powerful hot yoga class Willamette Valley Power Yoga is a great option and you will find great instructors there as well, also YMCA has great classes. Charlotte Ridinger teaches there and she will continue to do her SUP classes this summer.
There are so many great options out there for you to continue your yoga practice or fitness classes and I can’t cover them all but know that I support them all and if you have any questions or if you need a recommendation please do not hesitate to call me or email me and I will direct you to a class or instructor that I feel would be a good fit for you.
If the 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training is something you have shown interest in, please stay turned as we find a way to offer this opportuntity to continue our “Satya” Be True yoga teacher training.
We at PYY have so enjoyed being a part of your lives and having the opportunity to share a space with each of you. We will miss you immensely.
Wishing you all the best,
Pacific Yew Yoga Team & Owner Wendy Humphreys
