Owner & Instructor, E-RYT 500-HR

I am the owner of Breathe Yoga. As many of you know 2020 has dealt us all a full gamut of challenges and obstacles. In March of 2020 we closed Breathe Yoga due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Little did we know just how long that closure would last. Due to the very nature of our business model we were unable to safely re-open in May. We were a studio reliant on the use of all yoga props for Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga and Gentle and Chair Yoga classes. Many of our clients were in a high risk category and not feeling safe to come back to the studio.  We made the decision to remain closed until September 1st.

During that closure I was diagnosed with breast cancer (August 2020). All plans of re-opening were now on hold again while I met with dr’s to figure out a viable treatment plan. I needed to have surgery in September. This will be followed by radiation in October and November. Due to my extreme vulnerability during this journey, I quickly realized that I would be unable to be teaching in the studio until sometime in 2021.

A COVID-19 PIVOT was going to need to happen in order to save Breathe Yoga. I reached out to Sue Park to see if we could collaborate in an effort to keep Breathe Yoga alive and well while I stay home and take care of myself. Sue agreed to help me out and take Breathe in a new direction. Together, we hope to save this locally owned small studio.  Together we are stronger. Now more than ever, we all need each other.  We need your support of our small studio and in return we will support your yoga practice. Together, our goal is to not only survive, but to THRIVE- but we will need your help to do it. Please come in and experience the new look of our Breathe Yoga clasess. We look forward to seeing you. Together, let’s embrace the present moment for what it has to offer.

Please join us in our journey TOGETHER.

Namaste,

Amy
