Karma Yoga Bingham Farms Build-Out Tour

 

6/15/2020

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW HOME!

Karma Yoga Bingham Farms

Dear Karma Yogis,

We are praying for your continued good health and safety during this time.

Thank you for your incredible patience and love.......

We are so proud to finally announce our move, this summer 2020, to:

 

Georgetowne Executive Office

31700 Telegraph Road, Suite 120

Bingham Farms, MI. 48025



Thank you to Bill Beachum,   President

Beachum & Roeser Development & Management Corp. and the Bingham Farms Village Council for their enthusiasm and support surrounding our move to the Bingham Farms Community! Thank you ALL for working so tirelessly to make this new zoning happen; health & wellness has come to Bingham Farms!

Demo and build-out has already begun. We are excited to pack up and get ready to move this summer. Mike and I will be in residency soon to move the studio and teach at Karma when it's safe to re-open! We can't wait to see YOU.

Our new location is even more supportive during this era of COVID-19. We are no longer in a busy shopping center and only 1.5 miles from our current location.

You will feel more supported with:

 

 

There are many easy routes to get to your new home. Try out the mile roads and Lahser or Franklin. Georgetowne resides between 13 and 14 mile road on the east side of Telegraph. You will find it very easy to get to once you find your new path!

We have beautiful memories and will miss our home of almost 17 years at Maple & Lahser. Stay tuned for a 3-part blog to come reminiscing our journey there.

We look forward to serving Bingham Farms and all our students in this lovely, new home.

SPREAD THE WORD!

Namaste,

Katherine Austin Wooley

Dear Karma Yogi’s,

Sending you lots of love and strength still as we continue to navigate our new world.

I hope you are pleased and excited about our new home. I know it will be a beautiful new space to serve you.

We have decided it is best at this time to finish our residency at Maple & Lahser due to Governor Whitmer's "Safer at Home" phases not opening gyms quite yet.

We are excited for a FRESH, CLEAN, AND NEW start at our new

Georgetowne Bingham Farms location as soon as construction is done!

Stay TUNED for more VIRTUAL classes and maybe some in person

pop-ups when allowed!

Our FREE VIRTUAL classes are now available on Mindbody via our Schedule button at the top of each page on this website.  Create a login and sign up!

We have so many fond memories from our first Karma. We will always cherish her years at Maple & Lahser. Thank you for practicing with us for almost 17 years at our original location.

 

PRE Re-Opening Preparations

Besides building out our new studio, we wanted you to know we are also getting ready for you! Please review our Phase One re-opening list below. We will edit/update it according to Governor Whitmer's orders and guidelines.

Please let us know if there is anything more we can do to make you feel comfortable to be back in the studio together when it's time.

You can email me, Katherine, at katherine@karma-yoga.net

We are committed to keeping YOU and our STAFF safe:

PHASE ONE

  • Classes begin in-studio on (when it is deemed safe by the Governor)
  • All staff will be wearing masks

Dearest Students,

We send our love and prayers for continued good health and safety of you and your loved ones.

A few of you have graciously reached out regarding supporting our free Facebook classes we have been so blessed to offer these past 7 weeks. This has really touched my heart. 

NEW:

Since some of you asked for other options, we've added a NEW link below that takes you directly to our software. Feel free to reach out to me as well with any other solutions you might want....... katherine@karma-yoga.net

Thank you; we would love your support. Our vision for a more compassionate world has never felt more urgent. While we cannot share physical space together at our beloved Karma Yoga studio, we remain committed to a shared practice of spiritual care on platforms like Facebook Live. I am incredibly grateful for the beautiful service our teachers have so selflessly offered; true Karma Yoga. 

We are thankful for the opportunity to create a virtual sanctuary during this time of physical distancing. Right now we are using Facebook Live, however, in the near future it is our desire to move to our Mind Body platform where you can purchase video classes online.

**(Keep an eye out for an email SOON about a LIVE test class on our Mindbody platform)**

In the meantime, if you feel called to support Karma Yoga, we welcome your contribution toward our efforts. All contributions will go towards a general fund to support Karma Yoga operations so that we can continue to serve our beautiful yoga community as soon as we open our doors again. 

If you feel called, you can send your love contribution via:
