Dear OSBY Students and Friends,
I have spent the last year searching for a way to keep the studio open. But, unfortunately the financial situation means that the studio is closing on Jan 30, 2015. I hope you will join us for classes during this, the last month of OSBY, and help us finish strong. I'd love to see your smiling face in the hot room and say thanks and goodbye in person.
You probably have questions. I'll explain what this means for our students, and then you can continue to read if you'd like to hear my personal thoughts and thanks.
What this means for OSBY students...
Are you a Club member? Your upcoming payments have been cancelled and you will have no further charges. If you would like to continue as a member for the last month, you can pay your regular fee at the desk. (The last Club payments were for those on Jan 1st, so you may see your final charge a few days later, depending on your bank. No payments will be processed after Jan 1st.)
Using the Give Peace Scholarship? Your upcoming payments have been cancelled and you will have no further charges. If you would like to continue with Give Peace for the last month, you can pay your regular fee at the desk. (The last Give Peace payments were for those on Jan 1st, so you may see your final charge a few days later, depending on your bank. No payments will be processed after Jan 1st.)
Have a 10 or 20 class card or partially used Groupon? The good folks at Providence Power Yoga have partnered with OSBY to honor your remaining classes from Feb 1 until April 30, 2015. Their staff is ready to welcome you to their yoga community, and you can see the details on their studio here:
You do not need to call or email either studio to arrange for this transfer, just arrive early on your first visit to Providence Power Yoga.
What about the schedule and what packages are available? The schedule for January is on the website and the last day for classes will be Jan 30. Packages are:
monthly unlimited $140
5 classes, expires on Jan 30 $70
single class $19
Wanting to do the Yoga Competition? I hope you will still plan on competing! It would be wonderful to see you all on stage and celebrate the fantastic work you've done in your time at OSBY.

Before I opened OSBY, my dream was a studio filled with laughter, compassion, and community spirit. I am grateful that OSBY has been exactly the place I hoped we could create. From the beginning, it has been the students that have made the studio so special. I thank you for being a part of OSBY.
I'd like to extend my personal thanks to just a few of the many people who have helped OSBY. Thanks to my Mom and Dad and Buff, I was able to keep the studio in business for this last year; I am so very grateful. Our studio manager Briana has been my rock and cheerleader. AnnMarie arrived to be our angel just when we needed her most. Our teachers Meghan, Kelly, Steph, Liz and Mimi have given all their love, compassion and energy to OSBY. Thanks to my mentor, Diane, who is always ready to give me the best advice. And special thanks to my best friend Lisa who talked me down from many a cliff.
We currently have Bikram Yoga, a 90 minute hot yoga class, a 75 minute Vinyasa class, and a gentle non-heated Therapeutic Stretching class on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 to 10:45 am. If you have not been to our studio before, please check out these photos to help you find the location. Click here for the schedule and prices.
We want to help you feel better and be better. We hope that from your very first visit, you will feel welcomed by happy, smiling faces. Our studio is a judgment-free, safe zone where you will be guided by professional teachers who are devoted to helping you get the most from your yoga practice.
At OSBY, you can Be Better than you’ve ever imagined.
