Dear Yoga Room Community,

It is after much thought and with great sadness that, after more than 5 years of business, I will be closing The Yoga Room on Friday, June 5, 2020.

After many hours of preparing and going over several different ideas to keep the studio going, the compounding pressures of changes in my personal and family life and COVID-19 have put the business, myself and the community under too much stress. I do not see a sustainable future for us and must make the choice to close this chapter.

This has been an incredibly hard decision for me. I know this choice has deep ramifications for you — our dedicated students — as well as our teachers.

The Yoga Room has served as a place of community for hundreds of people over the years. We’ve offered a space to let go, to be vulnerable, to shed tears of joy and sorrow. We’ve danced, prayed, sung, and celebrated the beauty of sharing this life and this path with one another.

When we opened The Yoga Room in 2014, it was to share the gift of yoga with the neighborhood.  Never did I imagine I would meet so many people who have become so near and dear to my heart. I will forever cherish all that was created within our walls.

We will continue with our virtual classes until Friday, June 5.  We hope you will continue to join us, support our teachers, and share your memories of what The Yoga Room has meant to you.

Please feel free to email me at theyogaroomdunedin@gmail.com with any questions. Your stories and well wishes of love and support are welcome too. 

Importantly — after The Yoga Room has closed, please continue to support our teachers. We have created a page on our website with all of their info so that you may continue to follow them.

It has truly been one of my biggest honors and privileges to be of service and to hold space for The Yoga Room community. Thank you to all our amazing teachers and to all of you — the students who helped make The Yoga Room such a thriving community. I strongly hope that you will continue doing yoga, and that the legacy of The Yoga Room lives on through your self-care practices.

The divine in me sees and honors the divine in all of you.

In service and with deep gratitude,

Jenny Ribalta
Owner/Director of The Yoga Room
