UPDATE April 3 | LOCKDOWN
WE ARE STILL OPEN!
For the next little bit, we will be back to offering all our yoga classes and events + programs via live stream. We are still open!

I’d also like to take this moment to thank all the people that have continued to share practice with us, in whatever way, during this crazy year. It’s so important to keep doing the good work. It is also so wonderful to see how many dedicated people come daily to yoga regardless of the shift of how we have to give and get it. That said, thank you for helping us continue to do what we do and love. Your support means the world to us.

If your memberships are on hold, please consider re-activating them. It could be a great time for you to focus on a practice at home.

And finally, a note to all the amazing people that have continued to show up everyday and provide service for those seeking. The teachers. Your work has not gone unnoticed. Over 2000 times in the last year, your students have taken the time to share how much they love your classes, the practice and you. These reviews will be shared in time but know that you are making change happen. People come because of your enthusiasm to share. I appreciate you all so much. Holy crap, look at all the pivoting this year. You are amazing. Really. I ❤️ you.

That’s it. We aren’t far away. In fact we are only a click away. If you have a difficulty affording practice right now, reach out anytime, jwood@yogasamatva.com . We have a community program just for this purpose. Everyone can benefit from practice and should have the options.

We will be running a live stream sale starting this week and an option to have your expired class cards re-ignited! 🔥 so keep in touch.

UPDATE March 21 | FREE COMMUNITY YOGA OFFERINGS EXPAND
LIVE STREAM @ HOME | 30 MINUTES | FREE YOGA AND MEDITATION CLASSES
We believe that yoga should be for every-body + EVERYBODY but so often (and especially as of late) there are circumstances or beliefs that prevent people from practicing. You might think you are not “good enough”, or you can’t get to class because of lack of child care, or your financial or physical circumstances have limited your accessibility - and to that, we say NO!

ALL COMMUNITY CLASSES ARE FREE
Samatva + educators are working to embrace the nature of SEVA and karma - the act of service, an act without expectation and just out of kindness. All teachers time and studio services are donated for these practices.

UPDATE March 20 | MASTER CLASSES ARE BACK
Don’t be intimidated by the word “master”, this is a class for all students looking to deepen their understanding about the practice from a specific topic, or point of reference. There will be room for discussion and interaction if necessary depending on the scheduled style.

INFINITY MEMBERS ARE FREE
Master Class + EssentialYoga events are FREE for all Infinity Membership holders. Infinity Members are those that carry an unlimited recurring autopay membership with Samatva Yoga only.

UPDATE October 13 | RESERVATION POLICY REMINDER Class sizes are limited due to Covid-19 restrictions.  Please note that if you book and do not attend classes, you are holding this space from someone who could benefit from practice.  We kindly ask you to remove your reservations at min 60 minutes before class starts. Late cancellations will be charged as though class was attended for class cards + a $5 fee for unlimited membership holders.


UPDATE October 6 | BEGINNERS SERIES Please look for our Beginners Foundations 4-week Series to be returning to the schedule in the next two weeks.  We will be offering options for online live streaming as well as in-studio classes.  As always, these classes will be pre-registered.  Be sure to join our mailing list (found in the footer) to stay up to date on all studio offerings!

UPDATE September 30 | LIVE STREAMING NOW OFFERED VIA MBO | WHY THE CHANGE? Zoom limits us to have only one class streamable at a time; with MindBody Online Live Stream, we can offer a live service for every offering we have in the studio.  Offering all classes to you is the reason for the upgrade – it will work; we just need to get you set up correctly.  Below is your troubleshooting guide link, but here are the most common issues we have found:

MINDBODY LIVE STREAMING TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE + FAQs

  • Run all software + app updates: MBO likes things to be the latest versions
  • Apple device? If you are using an Apple product, stream with safari, not chrome
  • Disable your pop-up blocker This can hide the live streaming page
  • Internet Explorer is not very compatible with this software It is best to choose an alternate browser as default is you are streaming on a pc like Chrome or Firefox

UPDATE September 20 | HOW LONG WILL OUTDOOR CLASSES BE OFFERED? As long as we can! and guess what? They will return each and every season moving forward - some good does come from COVID-19. Please dress in layers and if you suspect rain, all class changes will be emailed 60 minutes before class or you can view our online schedule in this 60 minute window.


UPDATE July 14 | IN STUDIO CLASSES RETURN Phase 3 announcements will permit us to introduce in-studio classes back to our schedules! YAYA!!! In-Studio classes begin Monday July 20, 2020


Dear Samatva Community,


Breathe. This too shall pass......and how have we grown?

On March 16th, Covid-19 quarantine  forced ask us to adapt our space from an in-person one to virtually + we are so thrilled to slowly and safely get back to re-opening our studio doors. I’m sure you can understand but closing for extended periods a lot of pressure, stress and worry on any business let alone one that is so intimate and close.

Samatva Yoga, almost 15 years now, and its amazing yoga educators and support staff that have continued to show up for all stages of this COVID-19 shift and they have pivoted so effectively, efficiently and gracefully. They do this because they want to keep engaged with you all in whatever capacity has worked with you and your practice during this journey. Because they genuinely care. This is yoga. We shift, ebb and flow and find our center no matter what.

Thank you for your continued support however this needs to look for you right now.

We understand that everyone has a different lens to this current daily situation unfolding. For some this means keeping memberships active in support of the studio because they can, for some, this means they have had to make a hard decision to terminate memberships.  Some still have requested we offer a donation option to be able to provide what they feel they can while memberships are on hold in exchange for the use of studio offerings online.  For this reason, memberships will continue to run based on your requests individually. 

Thank you for whatever you can do to help us all be strong and get to the other side of this.

I’m so proud of us  - we hope you are too. We are not perfect but are doing our best. Please know it all comes from a place of caring and love.

We promise to walk before running. We will do this right.  We are committed to both your and our growth and that only happens when we get uncomfortable.  Let's continue to grow together.  🙏🏼

Peace, Jaime
