I wish to thank you, for all of your support, encouragement, thoughts and love over the months and years. You have helped to weave a truly unique and beautiful community at Body Bliss. Without you, this could not have happened. I am grateful to you for all you do, all you share, all you give to each other and to the community at large. You are amazing and I love being a part of this “tribe” in which we, together, have built.As COVID-19 hit and required us to close our doors for the safety of our community and instructors, Body Bliss Connection, llc has been struggling to keep Live Stream class attendance up with the sale of passes and memberships. I was prepared to keep reaching and working to grow and improve but there are other factors, in light of this pandemic, that come into play.The reality is, once we are eventually permitted to reopen, there will be some hesitation on the part of many of us, to gather in groups once again as health and safety are of utmost concern. There will be distancing restrictions, which will severely impact class sizes, therefore income recovery potential. In addition, we cannot fully understand the economic impact that this pandemic has created and how “disposable” income will be spent. None of us can know what the future brings.Body Bliss, along with many other micro businesses such as salons, spas, massage therapists, etc. did not qualify for the Forgivable business loans being offered.Due to the studio being shut down as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of what the economic future may hold I have had to make the difficult decision to close Body Bliss at the end of May. This has been the most difficult decision of my life and it is not made lightly. It is devastating to me and our instructors. We are all deeply saddened and yet, we remain hopeful that the future may offer all of us something stronger and more aligned with the needs of our”self”, our community and our world.
