BBC News – Big Bend Yoga Center is Reaching Out

By now you may have heard that BBC is reaching out to our community financially to be able to remain in the current space for the remainder of the lease… one and a half more years.

Kitty has looked at two spaces and neither one will do. One has no windows and one is entirely painted white AND has no garage door. We simply cannot leave 88 N. Gore.

Your generous support is deeply appreciated and will keep us ‘at home’ for another year and a half.

Please take time to click on and read the letter below, written by Barbara Finch, a long-time student of BBC. Find out how to donate and track our fundraising progress in the OM graphic on the right. Om Shanti!

You will find a link to our fundraising site here

Thank you deeply for your generosity and your commitment to our community!

Hi, Kitty.
Many years ago, I took some classes at BBC through the Community College. After those classes ended and my schedule changed, I tried taking an occasional class at various places around town, but I never found a place or a teacher that spoke to me. I have not done any formal yoga classes in the last decade – just some practice on my own with video guidance. I popped into the center yesterday on a whim. After Judith’s class, I am convinced that I want/need formal classes and that BBC is my home. I’m off next Monday so I will join Judith again and pick up a punch card. Then I’ll try to visit as often as I can. Thanks for reaching out to me. I feel even more welcome now! – Holly

Big Bend Yoga CenterOur first center opened in 1994 in a tiny house in Maplewood to provide a serene and sacred space for students as dedicated to practicing yoga as the four teachers/partners were to teaching. In 1997, the Center moved to a spacious converted garage in Webster with a padded floor, quality props, and a garage door that elevates to let the outside in. Visit Big Bend Yoga today, and find a class that suits your needs or make an appointment with one of our certified massage therapists.

I just wanted to tell you how much I love Mike’s class in the mornings. It is so great to be back at BBC regularly. I am always amazed — yet again — at the quality of the instruction and the feel of the place. I have never been to a yoga class that didn’t do me some good. But what happens at BBC is really special.
Thank you so much to Kitty and Lyn!
