Covid 19 – Updated 3/20/20

3/18/20 We’re moving online!
 
Like all of you, we’ve had quite the week re-arranging our personal lives but also our business in what felt like the blink of an eye. But here we are — one day at a time, navigating the rollercoaster of emotions and challenges, but at the end of the day, breathing through it all. 
 
We’ve never been called more fully to embrace our yoga practice than this time. Even by staying home and the sacrifices that brings upon us, we are practicing ahimsa in the name of keeping our community as safe as we can.  
We need each other now more than ever, and are grateful to draw upon our 11 years of building community with you all together in person, and live in a time when we can continue these relationships in the online world. Here’s how we’d love to continue to support you all and continue to offer the teachings from our amazing staff:
 
NEW FACEBOOK COMMUNITY
 
Our connections in the studio are what make 3 OMS such a special place, and the part we are saddest to be missing at this crucial time.

We know it isn’t quite the same, but we’ve started a FB group where we can support each other, connect, and share – maybe put some names to the faces you’ve practiced next to over the years! Let’s lean on each other, share tools from yoga that are providing comfort and relief right now, and lean in to the support that being in community provides. Our teachers will also be there – come on over, say hello and help us grow our virtual studio community! 

 
LIVESTREAMED CLASSES
 
Our teachers will be offering FREE livestreamed classes so you can continue to practice at home. Join us in our  FB online community starting 3/19 to see the current offerings.  
 
If you can’t join at those times and would like to view them later, they will remain posted in the group. Just scroll down the feed in the group to find them.
 
We are working on a more formal schedule of paid classes to support the studio and our teachers. Details for that will be sent out next week, so stay tuned as we work that out and catch our breaths for a minute. 🙂  In the meantime, join us over on Facebook to get some much-needed yoga – we can’t wait to see you over there and continue the meaningful connections we have with all of you. 
 
 
Namaste,
The 3 OMS Team
 
3/16 /20 Dear 3 OMS Community—
 
In observance of recent recommendations and to keep at the forefront of the health and safety of our students, staff, and public health we are cancelling all classes starting March 16th, for a month. We will revisit the recommendations of the Whatcom County Health Department and Governor Inslee in April and give you an update.

In an effort to continue to pay our staff and bring yoga to you at this most critical time, we are working to be able to offer online classes but we do not yet have that technology in place. We hope to offer a couple of classes each day that you can pay a reduced drop-in rate or members would continue to receive unlimited classes. Private sessions may still be an option and we are looking into virtual private sessions. We will keep you posted.

If your class package expires during this time of closure we will honor them when we reopen and extend the expiration.

For our members, if it is economically feasible to keep your membership rolling we would deeply appreciate it. If not, we completely understand and please let us know by email if you would like to suspend or cancel your membership.

Blessings to you all and please take care of yourselves and others when possible!

Amy and the 3 Oms Yoga Team
