Over the course of the last 7 years Charlotte Family Yoga Center has had the opportunity to serve this great community. When I opened Charlotte Family Yoga Center. I wanted to create a space that welcomed you no matter what stage of practice you were in; a yoga community that thrives on personal connection; where you matter and you are important. My studio would stand for personal growth, empowerment, possibility, and hope.
As a studio owner for more than seven years, I can tell you that yoga studio ownership is extremely hard work. Like any small business, it requires complete dedication, long hours, lots of sweat, and tears. Why did I do it? It was my dream and I do it because of YOU...I love your smiles, your stories and your hugs. I love creating a safe, sacred space for growth, and I love building a community.
As in any growing business we have consistently assessed the next steps for CFYC and how we can continue to be a vital part of this community. Each and every student and teacher that has made CFYC their home, allowed us to build a place, where anyone is welcome and accepted. We have come to realize that it is not the space that makes our community special but each and every one of you who have supported our journey to this point.
As with all journeys, there comes a time when you are met with a fork in the road and are faced with some tough decisions. Over the last several months we have been in negotiations with the building owners to renew the lease for the space we currently occupy.
Unfortunately, we have not been able to come to a mutual agreement and therefore have been given a 24 hour notice to leave the premises. It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I am writing to notify you, effective today June 20th, 2018, CFYC will no longer be holding any classes. Although it is the end of Charlotte Family Yoga Center as we know it it is not the end of our relationship that we share with you.
We realize that this closing will be inconvenient to many of you.
Thank you in advance for your understanding, patience and grace as we work through the finer details of logistics of this decision and next steps.
During this transition period, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to all of YOU who made it possible for me to live out my dream of owning my own yoga studio.
We love all of you:)
Diane, Juan and all the Charlotte Family Yoga Center Staff
