As the province has suspended group fitness, Buddha Belly Yoga and Wellness will be temporarily closing its doors to yoga effective immediately in order to do our part in reducing the spread of Covid-19. The closure is expected to last for two weeks (November 13-27).
Since we can’t be together during this time, all of our classes will be Livestreamed so that you can connect with your instructor and other members. Thanks for your patience while we transition over. Our schedule will be updated within 2 days.
If you have signed up for an in-studio class during this 2 week closure, your class will be credited back to your account.
If you are in a position to support the studio, please note that:
- our online retail store will remain open for easy shopping;
- we will remain open for massage, reiki, hawaiian healing and acupuncture at this time. Thank you in advance for any appointments booked as they do go a very long way in helping us stay afloat. Any support is greatly appreciated. We offer direct billing to most insurance companies for eligible services.
I’ll be honest here. There are many mixed emotions that come with a 2nd closure. I feel like I just regained my barings from the last 7 months by recovering from the 1st studio shut down while also enduring my own personal crises and volcano eruptions. I was just starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But, the good news is that Buddha Belly and I are very resilient creatures. We weather any storm (and trust me there have been many in all the years of being open) and this time will be no different! <3 We somehow managed to pull through and attempt to save and rebuild the studio the first time. I am not one for giving up, so here is to hoping we can survive round 2!
Please know my heart goes out to you all. We all are experiencing a roller coaster of a life right now and this has affected us all in great ways and turned the world upside down. I hope you are safe and healthy and I can’t wait to see you again soon <3 I wish you all well during these challenging times. All we can do is breathe deeply and take it day by day, moment by moment.
Together I hope to keep our community going. After all, it was the overwhelming love and support and kindness of the customers and staff that got Buddha Belly through the first time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking by me this year. You mean the world to me and I have so much love and gratitude in my heart for you all.
Take care of yourselves and each other. Please remember to be kind. <3
