When I took over the reigns of 8 Limbs Yoga Centers in January 2020 and a lease at W. Seattle set to expire a month later, my goal and hope was that by extending the lease and some investment and TLC, I would be able to revitalize the studio and keep it in the 8 Limbs family for many more years. There was no doubt that the studio held an incredibly special place in the hearts of so many of our students, teachers, and partners.
Unfortunately, Covid 19, the resulting shutdown of the studio two months later, and a continued closure has made any chance of achieving this reality highly improbable. With a heavy heart, I am writing to let you know that the 8 Limbs studio at 4546½ California Ave SW, Seattle, will permanently close its doors on February 28th, 2021.
I know that for many of our students and teachers, this studio has played an important role in their development and growth as yoga practitioners. It is because of this community that 8 Limbs was able to stay the course for almost 16 years. On behalf of all at 8 Limbs, thank you for this trust and support. ….
The full announcement is published on the 8 Limbs website, including information on a plan for “opening the doors for folks to come by, say goodbye to the space, and pick up a few things for their home studios.” The company plans to continue offering online classes as well as in-person classes “when we re-open our other studios in Capitol Hill, Phinney Ridge, and Wedgwood.” 8 Limbs is the second Junction yoga studio to close in six months; Bikram Yoga closed last fall.
