Dear Viveka Community,

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the closure of Viveka Yoga on June 22nd 2019. The last class will take place on Friday, June 21st.

I have been the owner of this beautiful studio for the past 3 years and it has been a real honor to meet each and every one of you and to play a small role in your lives. My mission has always been to offer a calm and welcoming environment to as many different people as possible. It has been a true privilege to have such a diverse range of ages and ethnicities join our community and I am incredibly humbled by how many of you have shared your personal stories with myself and the other teachers.

I am truly heartbroken to have to make this announcement but I simply cannot continue to bear the financial risk and all the responsibilities required to make this community thrive. This decision has not come easy but I must admit that this past year has been very challenging for my family and I. I have done my best to juggle having a baby and growing the studio simultaneously but unfortunately I am feeling quite burned out. As many of you know, I have always been an advocate for the prioritization of mental health and de-stigmatizing what it means to live with mental illness so I hope you can understand that this is what I need to do for the mental wellbeing of my family and myself.

Effective immediately, all prepaid passes may be used in any way you’d like. You can share them with friends and family, transfer them and/or use them for any type of class you wish. Please understand that I will not be able to honor any passes after the closure on June 22nd so please take advantage now. If you require additional passes we will be offering a drop-in rate at $10 per class. Please note: no other packages or rates will be offered at this time.

I know that the next few weeks will be emotional and challenging for many of us but the teachers and I are committed to bringing you the very best of yoga right up until the end. You can download our schedule HERE.

We hope you will continue to support us as we navigate this next phase with as much grace and integrity as possible.

For any questions or concerns please email us at

I really cannot thank you enough for your presence and support within our community. Words cannot express how much the past 3 years have meant to me and I hope that we can find other ways to connect in the future.

Thank you in advance for your understanding, patience and support in this matter.

I look forward to practicing with you in the coming weeks.
