Another closure due to Dr. Bonnie Henry and the province officials generalizing Yoga Studios into a category of "Indoor Group Fitness". Currently there is no contact between teachers or students. Students stay on their yoga mats at all times, and no one is moving around the room. All of the advised safety protocols are in place. There has been such a low number of cases in any Yoga Studios across BC, that this makes no logical sense at all. There has only been one case reported in Richmond since the last lockdown in November.

General shut downs of these small businesses is not going to do anything to decrease numbers, it will only add to the spike of Mental Health issues and to our overall economy suffering.. Province wide we are all asking for your help. Please sign this petition to help Yoga Studios throughout BC stay open during this time.

We have all followed every protocol put in place and yet Gyms are able to remain open for personal workouts? How is a yoga class different than a personal workout if the distancing guideline is followed? Most studios cannot even open due to the distancing restrictions of 8.5ft between students and teachers while in a class. Supermarkets, Hardware Stores, Malls, Liquor stores, Winery's, do not have near the advised safety or distancing protocols that Yoga Studios have in place, and yet they remain open.

Yoga Studios and other small businesses are the heart of the BC economy. Keeping Yoga Studios open not only contributes to the economy, but also supports mental health and well being on a continual basis.

We appreciate all the support we can get, more than you know. Thank you.
