You all know that I have a passion for yoga. I love what I do and truly believe that I am part of a growing energetic movement to make people (including myself) calmer, more peaceful, happier, and healthier. My passion for yoga doesn’t stop when I step off my mat or out from the front of a class. Instead, yoga spills into everything in my life including what I eat and feed to family and friends, what I buy, and how I spend my time. For months now, I have been staying open to the possibility of finding a way to integrate many of the things I see as part of yoga into one physical space. Last month, I found a new location that I am very excited about.
In the next few months my husband, Steven, sons, Dylan & Deven, and I will be embarking on a new project. You see, this is a family affair. Everything that I do and that I do with O2 Yoga has the support and hard work of my family behind it. Steven has been the mastermind and artist behind every studio we have ever built. He is not only the love of my life but is an incredibly talented builder, carpenter, and designer. He is the yin to my yang so to speak and without him, O2 wouldn’t exist in the way it does today. This spring, we we be opening O2 Yoga Cambridge! This new studio will of course offer awesome O2 Yoga, but will also have a vegan cafe called “Bunny Love” run by my good friends Bonnie and Ian, a retail store, and massage! We are thrilled (and terrified) but mostly thrilled.
I also believe in not spreading myself or my energy too thin. It is absolutely critical that I have enough energy in my life for all that I believe to be important. That said, we will be moving out of our South End location as of December 1, in order to open this new space in Cambridge. I am incredibly sad to leave the wonderful community that is the South End But I am unable to take on this huge project without letting something else go. I sincerely hope that yoga continues to grow in the neighborhood and perhaps even in the same location. I am unsure, at this moment, who will be taking over the space but I am actively working towards finding another yoga intructor or studio to continue on there. After all, the South End is another of my husband’s beautiful designs and has been the location of 4 years of transforming yogis and yoginis. That space has amazing energy and I know it will continue to do so.
I sincerely hope that if you practice in the South End, you will continue to practice with us in Somerville and our new location in Cambridge. We will be posting information regarding class cards and memberships, etc in the South End. Please look for that in the next week.
Feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org), Elliott ( email@example.com), or Karen (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions or concerns. And of course, your enthusiam will be much appreciated! Peace, Mimi
