It is with a heavy heart that we share some important news with you. The recent flooding has left our Midleton branch with extensive damage to our floor, equipment, and premises, leading us to make a difficult decision. After careful consideration, taking into account the challenges we’ve faced with business closures during the pandemic and our current recovery phase, along with limited resources, we have made the decision not to reopen our doors. We will, however, continue to share yoga from our studios in Cork City, Ballincollig, and online.
Our time in Midleton has been marked by incredible moments of hope, renewal, and unwavering support from this wonderful community. When we first opened our doors, the people of Midleton embraced us, encouraging us every step of the way. Our Midleton studio became a beacon of light during a challenging period for us all after we had to close our studio in the city in 2020 due to Covid.
We hold so much gratitude to our community in Midleton. We want to take this moment to express our deepest gratitude to every one of you. Your support has been the cornerstone of our journey, not only in these trying times but throughout our entire time in Midleton. The outpouring of love and solidarity from the community, including our clients, Midleton Chamber, neighbors, our wonderful landlord, and fellow businesses, has touched us deeply.
To our incredible teachers and team, we extend our heartfelt thanks for the knowledge, passion, and dedication you’ve shared with the community. You have left an indelible mark on all of us.
Though we bid farewell to our cherished Midleton space, we look ahead with hope and excitement for what the future holds. We are actively seeking a new location, one that will allow us to continue serving this wonderful community, this time on higher ground! Our aim is to be back in Midleton in 2024, stronger and more inspired than ever before.
To our dear members we have sent you an email communication relating to your passes and options to continue practising with us. You will find this in your member account or email inbox. If you don’t see this, please reach out to us and we will send you on this important communication.
This decision has been nothing short of heart-wrenching for us. We will miss our community dearly, as well as the beautiful space that has been a sanctuary for us all. As we move forward, we carry with us the cherished memories and the knowledge that our yoga journey is far from over.
We wish the brave people of Midleton all the success in their recovery phase. The community spirit has been exceptional during these difficult times, and everyone should take pride in the shared camaraderie and generosity that we all got to witness.
With deepest gratitude and warm regards,
The Team at Himalaya Yoga Valley Cork
