Updated Saturday May 23rd, 2020

Clackamas County approved for Phase 1
Forge will be reopening a staggered and limited in-person schedule starting Friday, May 29th @ the West Linn location initially while we wait on new floors to be installed at Happy Valley. Happy Valley could reopen for in-person classes as early as June 1st or 2nd.

Multnomah county is not in phase 1 yet, so the Alberta reopening will be announced when the time comes.

We are looking forward to moving towards this goal and have details to share with you regarding the guidelines and policies during this time. Details will be release over this next week so please keep checking your inbox and website for further information.

We know you are anxious to get back into the hot room and feel amazing! This week, we encourage you to take the virtual classes to help you keep your body strong. We encourage you do those classes wearing your mask (It’s really doable!) and keep up a strong hydration routine. For those who are not ready to return to in-person classes yet, we will continue to offer live-stream & virtual classes even after we begin in-person classes. 

If you are not already familiar with pre-registering for classes, you will need to make sure your MindBody Profile & Waiver is up-to-date and that you can make a booking.

Reopening & Plans

When?

We know that question has been on your mind. Angela & I would like you to know that while we don’t have a definite answer or date yet, we do have plans & policies ready. 

Every day we are reminded of the uncertainty we all face. We are continuously checking with the agencies providing guidance and have been keeping abreast of important information we will need. As the state begins to reopen we will follow necessary social distancing requirements regarding when our counties enter Phase 1. Our decisions are weighed with the health and safety of our staff & members in mind.

When we start our reopening we will be implementing changes on booking classes, schedules, customer service, memberships & more. Please keep regularly checking your inbox & website for updates within the coming days. Please make sure your profile is up-to-date by clicking this link and filling out missing information and subscribe to text and email.

We truly cannot thank you enough for the support we’ve received the last 55 days. During this time we hope that you’ve kept your healthy routines and your family close.  

Sincerely,

Dearest Forge Community
From the owners…
As of March 16th Forge Hot Yoga – All Locations – will be temporarily closing for two weeks.

We are disappointed that we have to make this announcement. Until we can get a better grasp of what’s happening in our communities, the health and wellbeing of our community members must be our first priority.

We’ve made several contingency plans, followed all the guidelines we could implement to make sure we were providing the safest place possible, but with all the uncertainty surrounding information being released and how proper authorities are handling the situation we feel that it is in our communities’ best interest to at least shut our doors for two weeks, or until the situation is improved. 

We also would like to remind you that ONLINE CLASSES are coming soon. We are getting ready to launch on Tuesday.

If there are any questions with payments or packages please contact us. We are extremely flexible in this situation. 

Thank you so much for all your support. Our communities mean the world to us.

Stay safe and healthy friends. We miss you already,
Update Friday March 13th

Alberta & West Linn to remain closed through Sunday 3/15/20.
The best news is that our deep clean by River City Evironmental will be finished Saturday. However, we are postponing classes one more day to prepare to add online options for ya’ll & finalize our contingency plans.

We are locally ran, owned and operated business and with each update and adjustment we need a little time to implement. Yet, we are also eager to keep our routines and keep life going as normal as best we can and is reasonable.

We have been relieved and brightened knowing you are supportive as we all navigate this new territory.

We’re adding online options!
You can follow this website for updates as streaming options & video feeds will be rolled out this weekend.
Online Classes

Our community means the world to us and we appreciate you all. Thank you for your generosity & kindness. We are lucky.
