UPDATE 6.28.2020:  Due to recent developments in the spread of Covid-19 and this past week’s rapidly rising number of cases, we are taking precautionary steps to ensure the safety of all Ayama students and staff. We will continue classes ONLINE ONLY for the coming week and closely monitor the situation in order to determine when we can resume in-person classes as safely as possible. We will be reassessing the situation on Friday an announcing our plans for re-opening at that time. We thank you for you understanding and look forward to seeing you on Zoom!

As we continue to adopt the best measures for preventing the spread of coronavirus, we are also working tirelessly to keep our studio open. Your support during this critical time helps us pay rent and continue to keep our local Yoga family in strong standing. Please sign up for Zoom classes as often as you are able to or donate to the studio by clicking here. We are eternally grateful for the support we have received thus far and we hope to be a beacon of light in the community for years to come. It wouldn’t be possible without you!
