A note from owner/director Karen Barker...
Dear Sunbeams Community,
It is with sadness that I share the news that Sunbeams Yoga will be closing at the end of November.
Unfortunately, the revenue has never been enough to meet expenses, and the business has been running in the negative for over two years. I have stayed open longer than was financially wise and taken on significant business debt to keep the doors open, because the community means so much to me. Many of you have been a part of this community consistently, and I’m sorry we haven’t been able to grow our membership to a financially sustainable place.
Some of our classes will end in October, and several will continue until the end of November. I hope you will continue to come to class and connect with your fellow Sunbeams yogis. Multi-class passes will no longer be sold, but all current passes remain valid and the drop-in single class rate is being lowered to $10.
Jenn will continue taking massage appointments until we close, and afterwards you may find her at Pranapiloga in Culpeper.
After closing, you will have the opportunity to purchase props to further your home practice, if you are interested .
I’ll be taking a short break from teaching to focus on some health issues, and hope to return to teaching next Spring. If you’d like to be notified when/where I’ll be teaching again, you may reply to this email and I’ll add you to my personal email announcement list. You can also find info at my website and follow me on social media from there.
You can find many of our other current and former teachers at Common Ground Healing Arts in Charlottesville and at Pranapiloga in Culpeper. If there’s a particular teacher you are interested in connecting with, please let me know and I’m happy to put you in touch.
I am grateful to have served this community for the last two and a half years. I hope you will continue your practice and stay connected with one another. Thank you for sharing your practice with me!
