I have some BIG news to share! It is with a heavy heart but a great deal of excitement too, that I am writing to let you know that I have agreed to sell my London Bridge Studio to Bikram Yoga London.
Jay and Conny, who are the owners of Bikram Yoga London and the studio in Canary Wharf are now the proud owners of the London Bridge studio. I have known Jay and Conny for over 14 years and always respected the way that they run their studio and manage their business. More recently, I have worked very closely with them. I must express what an absolute pleasure it has been to get to know them better and to understand how they work and I feel confident that I am passing on my much beloved London Bridge studio to teachers and business people whom I respect and know will put the love and energy into the future running of the studio.
Over the past 6 years, we have created a truly wonderful space at London Bridge for teachers, staff and students to practise yoga. I am sure you will agree that we have watched a community grow and build to what it is today, which is something really special. We have seen so many lives changes and so many people for whom the London Bridge studio means so much. I know that together, with Jay and Conny, this community will continue to grow and flourish.
I have built and run yoga studios for over 12 years and it is time for me to make a change. It was certainly not an easy decision as I have loved and treasured these years working to build and run all 3 studios at Fulham, Balham and London Bridge. It is not everyone who is lucky enough to be able to say that they love their work. I feel really proud of what I have built.
I am not leaving the yoga community, that’s for sure! I will continue to own the Hot Yoga Society brand and I am sure will do lots of exciting things in the future but, for now, I will continue to work and support Jay and Conny in the smooth transition of the London Bridge studio to Bikram Yoga London and I hope to continue to work with them for a long time to come. My aspiration is to set myself up as a consultant and to offer other individuals or boutiques studios support and guidance in building or running a business. But first, I will take a long, much needed rest!
I am sure you will have many questions as to how this will affect you and your membership. Please do have a read of the Q+A’s Please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries you may have.
A huge thank you to all my staff, teachers and students who have played a part in Hot Bikram Yoga and Hot Yoga Society over the years, I am eternally grateful to you all.
I hope you all keep up your yoga practice for many years to come and stay in touch
