Yoga Forest friends,
This coronavirus pandemic is causing such challenges and changes for all of us - some with good results others not so much.  I am struggling to find the right words to write to you all but it has become clear to me that due to financial constraints I must close the Yoga Forest studio.  I am sorry for us all as it has been such a great gathering ground for yoga, meditation, friendships, and other fun events over the years.  My fellow teachers and I are sad and will very much miss sharing our laughter, tears and of course our classes with you all.  

So many events we have shared over the years since February of 2008 when I opened the Yoga Hus in Scandia.   Many of you came to both studios when they were both operating for a time when the Yoga Forest opened in November of 2012.   We hosted so many different events over the years: belly dancing, Tai Chi, Zumba, Pilates, Meditation, various yoga workshops, yoga for kids, yoga for dudes, SUP Yoga, broke the Guinness Book World Record when I taught SUP yoga to 313 yogis on Forest Lake, Yoga Barre, Yoga Teacher Training (of which many of those 10 students went on to teach at the Yoga Forest!), community education classes and the list goes on.  We have made such great connections with you awesome yogis over the years.  Thank you for your years of support and friendship!!  The Yoga Forest
