Regretfully, yet with a glimmer of hope, we regret to inform you that the Bare Hands Yoga Collective as it stands will be closing down our studio location effective April 1, 2021.
We will continue to offer limited online yoga with Chrissy and Jenna in the near-term (another announcement will follow), as well as possibly some in person yoga with Chrissy in TBD locations. Chrissy’s Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday classes, and Jenna’s Wednesday and Thursday stay as is.
Unfortunately, over the course of 2020 and early 2021, Covid’s effect on our base membership as well as a severe drop in incoming new members was too much to overcome. We held on for as long as we could hoping for a spark of interest, but that day never came.
However, we refuse to give up completely, as we believe in the message and practice of yoga for a healthy lifestyle. For the time being, the nucleus of teachers and Scott will remain connected through a love of fitness and wellness of the mind and body, and we plan on maintaining online courses as much as we can, as well as looking for opportunities to host socially responsible events and yoga experiences in different locations when the opportunity presents itself. This would include our online Zoom yoga classes, live music + yoga nights, yoga and wellness workshops, and other creative ideas we may come up with along the way.
We would like to thank each and every one who showed us support and rooted us on as we attempted to bring yoga back to Columbia. The opportunity we had to meet and get to know all of you is priceless, and we cannot say thank you enough. Without our beloved members, none of this could have ever happened. We gave it a good go with many bright spots and bursts of joy. Oh how we will miss this space.
Unfortunately for the time being, Covid’s effect on our community was too strong, and we will go into a holding pattern, and we will try our best to stay connected and perhaps rise again some day in the future.
With Love - The Bare Hands Collective
