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

    Thank you Tom and all the staff for making me feel welcomed there! I really enjoyed my classes, even though I wasn’t there that often, being an out-of-towner.

    Lots of love and good health to you Tom. The whole environment there was lovely!
