We are Closed!

20 Apr

Bikram Yoga Guelph is closed as of Thursday April 20.

We have offered yoga classes to Guelph and surrounding areas for over 8 years. But at this time we can no longer continue due to rising costs, competition with the big gyms, low attendance and my own personal health. It is a hard decision I do not take lightly in any way.

I am looking into having active memberships honoured at another studio in Guelph so you may continue a yoga practice. I will let you know as soon as I have some news.

Thank you for being part of our yoga community!

I apologize for any inconvenience.

 

Sincerely,

Tom Dowd

Bikram Yoga Guelph

    Hi Tom,
    Kit and I have just returned from Costa Rica and were planning on coming to the studio for 6am class on Monday. I just heard about the studio closing, and am so sorry. I have tremendous gratitude for you having opened the studio… I had my first class in March of that year. I think you had just opened. I bought 10 days of yog for $10, went 9 days of the 10, and was hooked! Bikram yoga at your studio was life changing for me. I found my body again, after having lost it at 16!!!! Thank you so much. I read your letter, and your concern for your own health. I hope closing the studio will allow you what you need to be well.
    Love, Pam

    SAY IT AIN’T SO?!? 😭

    Losing this practice, this studio is heartbreaking to me. As I am sure it is to all the staff, and many other longtime practitioners. On and off for the past 7 years this place has been my one constant sanctuary. The only place that I could relax fully, sweat out my frustrations and just stop thinking for a while. I am so thankful for that, and don’t have a clue what I will do without it. Thank you for the years, Tom, and everyone who taught classes, past and present. I hope the studio will be re-opened eventually, as it really is a magical place.

    I live in Toronto and travelled to Guelph very often to teach at Bikram Yoga Guelph- my second home!!! I love every moment. The students are so positive, warm, hard working and true to their practice. I will come back in a heart beat. ❤.
    Thank you Tom for bringing the true hot yoga in Guelph. I will miss my 2 hour Go bus ride almost every week from Toronto , 6 AM classes, Vegan lunch, the consignment store hopping between classes, and all the yogis !

    Be well.

    Love,

    Maria

    I’m so sorry to hear this news! I wish you all the best. Have you been able to link our existing memberships to another studio?

    Thank you,
    Jennifer
