Dear Hot Yoga West Community,
Thank you for your support in these unprecedented times.We want you to know that we are here for you as a constant during this period of uncertainty.
The world has changed and it will not be changing back again. So we have to adapt, evolve, grow and adjust to this new way of living. The impact of Covid-19 will likely be with us for some time to come. The practice of yoga enables us to become calmer, stable and more steady human beings. It helps us to be the best version of ourselves.
Hot Yoga West will re-open on Monday 18 May for Bikram Hot Yoga and IHP Classes only. Reduced schedule, reduced capacity and temporary new protocols is the only viable way forward. Online access will also be available for the classes at the studio. Vinyasa, yin and other classes will continue to live stream on Zoom. We are working continuously to expand the video library on HYW TV for you. Our aim is to offer enough classes across various different platforms in order to best serve the needs of this diverse community. Weather permitting we plan to offer outdoor yoga classes in the park as well. We appreciate your patience as we work through this transition period. This is all new to us and as in yoga it will take practice, patience and perseverance. Please note and respect the new protocols for everyone’s enjoyment of the yoga studio. I hope that we can all share the space in a way where we feel safe, secure, seen and most of all relaxed.
