Finally! After 3 long months, Saybrook Soul Sweat is re-opening. Nama-freakin-ste!!!!First – THANK YOU!! Thank you for your constant love and support over the past three months. We know they were tough on all of us. There were so many moments we wondered if we would ever re-open, but every time we got discouraged, it was a message from one of you that kept us hopeful. Thank you for those messages, letters, rolling memberships, gift cards, pre-purchased classes, donations, sharing on social media…just thank you.
One of my favorite quotes is -“What if pain – like love – is just a place brave people visit?”Three months of a closed studio, of no in house yoga, of not seeing all of you, of not knowing whats in store for the future was painful for all of us. But we got through it together, even if together meant from afar and virtually, and we are so so grateful!!
Re-opening will be very trial and error for everyone. We are committed to offering the best possible yoga experience in the safest way right now, but please understand there is no handbook to follow. We are just going to try to do the next right thing, one thing at a time, and hope for the best. There will be bumps in the road. We will undoubtedly make mistakes. We will experience growing pains as we transition to a new normal. Please be patient with us and kind to one another in the coming weeks and months.
Policies / changes / schedules / package information below! Everything subject to change as needed.
Thank you ~ Court!
