Dear Buddha Belly Community,

I hope you are all well despite everything during this time. We are missing you so much every single day! 

Flowing with the typical slow down in the warm seasons… we know that spring/summer weather brings low class numbers (we totally get it, we also want to be outside too during the few short months we have!). But because things are dramatically different with covid restrictions and not being able to have in person classes, we have made the decision to put a temporary hold on live stream yoga classes until we can re-open fully with regular in-person classes again, (hopefully in the fall).

We think we have made the best decision we can in order to preserve Buddha Belly for the future while continuing to follow the government guidelines that have been imposed on us during these precarious times.

FINAL VIRTUAL CLASSES SCHEDULE

Our last class of virtual classes (for now) will be Monday May 3. We really do hope you will join us until then as a final hoorah, until we meet again! If you have class passes or memberships they are able to be used for these virtual classes. Book like you normally would.
