Covid-19 Update – Road to Reopening


#covid19 update: While we wait to be able to reopen our small business to the public again we are taking the time to clean – paint – replace damaged by the winter floors – rethink our seating area in a rather small space – think how we are going to protect both staff and clients – update policies – rethink ideas and ways to do things efficiently.

We miss you, our conversations, our amazing instructors who run all kinds of classes in our studio, all the yogis, members of our Spanish club – Flamenco dancers and Salsa dancers!!!!! We are lucky to have clients who are waiting for us to open. ☕️🙏!

We continue to wait for the right conditions to reopen and are grateful for the help received so far for our employees. Hoping that the Town of Oakville will allow for more outdoors space this summer to enable social distancing. Town of Oakville Bronte Village BIA Oakville Pam Damoff Halton Region
