MOVING FORWARD IN THE COVID-19 ERA
THANK YOU TO OUR
"Don't know if you are going to close the studio or not but either way I'd like to offer to continue having my monthly membership go towards the studio."
"I would like to keep my full membership active - In support of Mountain Yoga and our wonderful teachers during this crazy time. I imagine many other members of Mountain Yoga would be willing to do this as well."
"My question is: what can we students do to help Mountain Yoga? We all have skin in the game."
"Please continue my payments as normal. It's something I can do for the studio."
March 16, 2020. It's a been a wild morning.
Alameda County just ordered "shelter-in-place" thru April 7.
Breathe. We can do this.
What does this mean for your yoga and our community?
Effective immediately we will not be holding classes in-studio. We are now in the process of moving classes into LIVEstreaming so you can take class with your favorite teachers from home.
Livestreaming is just like taking class at the studio — except you're at home. You can see your teacher and they can see you. You can laugh with your yoga buddies. Ask questions, get corrections. Make bad jokes. ;-) All while staying safe and "flattening the curve" of virus transmission.
This way, we can continue to call on our yoga and each other to help us weather this crisis together — and perhaps come out the other side with an even deeper connection to our yoga and each other than before.
More details on livestreaming coming soon (like, tomorrow!).
Will Mountain Yoga Survive this Crisis?
Yes. If — and only if — everyone who benefits from our studio comes together to ensure its survival. That means teachers, practitioners, members, students, vendors and the Montclair Community. We are asking for all students to attend LIVEstream classes, and for members to sustain their memberships, during this period, if at all possible.
Thank you to those members who have already pledged to stay with us thru this time! See some of our favorite emails below. Expect to hear details more from me tomorrow, if not before. Be well, stay safe, and don't forget — breathe!
