Maha Teachers and Staff COVID-19 Relief

Dear Maha Yoga community, 

We have closed Maha Yoga for the rest of the month. While we know the yoga studio is a haven for stress relief and soothing the nervous system, we also recognize that at this time we are called to be part of a greater social cause. 

This decision is the right one, yet of course it is difficult for everyone at the studio, especially our skillful teachers and beloved clients. We have weathered many difficult times as a community, and we believe in our resilience and capacity to support each other. We know that even in isolation we are always connected, and our connection and interdependence is the very reason we choose social distancing right now. 

This is a scary time for so many, and will financially impact countless members of our community, including of course our teachers and front desk staff. We are asking our community members who are financially stable to assist our teachers and staff during this unprecedented and financially precarious time. 

If this feels right to you and is within your means, please consider donating. 100% of these donations will be given to teachers and desk staff to directly offset their loss of income during Maha’a closure. 

Thank you so much for your concern and support during this unpredictable and challenging time! We will continue to provide updates on our operating status as we move forward.

With love and gratitude,
Anna Levine (Maha community member in communication with studio owner Justicia DeClue, who is currently in rural Mexico)
