To my dearest West Linn studio members and customers,
|I am writing to you to let you know that we have made the very difficult decision to close our West Linn location on March 14th, 2021. After 10 years and counting we are saddened that we are saying farewell to our beloved spot here in West Linn. This last shutdown made it even more final that we cannot financially sustain business operations at this location. I can assure you that I’ve looked at every angle and the heartbreaking truth is that these next 30 days will be our good-bye. We’re reopening this week for in-person classes so we can service you to the best of our ability. Please see the schedule here www.forgehotyoga.com/schedule|
This may be only a farewell to a building or a store for some, but for me and many of you who’ve spent the last 10 years here it will be the end of an era. I began my journey of self healing after I broke my back when I was 20 years old. I found Bikram Yoga at age 23- and it worked! My pain was gone and I had found my calling. I wanted everyone to feel this amazing after a yoga class. I was fortunate to be able to purchase the West Linn location in 2012- and the rest is history. Happy Valley was born in 2014 and Alberta came along in 2017, right when my partner was diagnosed with cancer.
We have built many, many relationships here in West Linn that we will never forget. To be honest, you all have helped me more than I could ever help you. I cannot imagine what it will feel like to leave this space just yet but please know that I do not want to leave our community.
Forge Hot Yoga will live on and I am looking forward to seeing many of you over at our other locations, Alberta (NE Portland) or Happy Valley. It is our long term goal to seek out new real-estate in order to serve West Linn/Oregon City & surrounding areas again. At the moment there are no options that fit our needs – but we are looking!
Please continue to follow us on social media (IG: @forgehotyoga FB: @forgehotyoga) and join us virtually for online membership or on-demand classes/videos.
If you would like to enroll in Forge Online it is only $29/mo!
|IMPORTANT: Your class cards will be automatically honored at all other locations, no request for transfer is necessary. |
Please, let me know how else we can serve you and support you during this time.
With respect and humility and LOVE and GRATITUDE. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything, West Linn.
