To my Beloved yoga community,
Savasana has been one of the most challenging poses for me over my 30 years of practicing yoga. I tend to hang on tight, especially to those/that which I love.
For the past 3 years we have held on tight to our passion to serve you. Like so many other small businesses we have experienced ongoing challenges from the pandemic. Last year, we put an SOS call out that we had to contemplate closing and we received a supportive response but we are still in the same situation a year later.
The time has come to let go and to close the doors at 3 Oms Yoga on March 31st. It has become clear that we can no longer “hold on” due to ongoing operating losses. There does not seem to be enough demand for in-person yoga classes and the cost of running a business has increased. Across the nation/world yoga studios and small businesses have had to make this same difficult decision. This is no one’s fault and I feel grateful to my dedicated staff and committed yoga community for all we’ve done to support each other, especially these past 3 years.
Some of you will feel shocked by this news. I know that there will be grief in it’s myriad of forms, felt by our staff, by the community and by me. Thankfully we have our yoga practice to move through whatever arises.
Please know that this has been over a yearlong deliberation and we have given it our all. We plan to continue to offer classes, workshops and time to say goodbye until March 31st and hope that you will join us.
We will no longer offer Class Packages and will move to Drop-in fee rates.
Below are important details for current Class Packages you have purchased, Membership payments, and Drop-in class fees.
Active Class Packages & Gift Certificates:
Please use up your active Class Package or Gift Certificate before 3/31/2023 and we will no longer be able to offer extensions on expiration dates.

Drop-in Class Fees: We will offer Drop-in fee rates for classes at our current rate of $20 and $25, please pay what you can.
It has been my honor to serve the Bellingham community teaching yoga these past 20 years and running 3 Oms Yoga for the past 14 years. As I close this chapter, I will definitely grieve this loss. However, my heart is full, knowing the joy and impact 3 Oms has had on my life and yours.
I invite you to come and spend these coming months with us to CELEBRATE one another, the relationships we have built and the gifts we have all received through Yoga.
Please email us with any questions.
Om Om Om and Namaste,
