To our dearest USY members,
We are saddened to be sending this email but after much soul searching, the gradual decline in online class attendance and the return of many of our teachers to in-studio classes, we have made the difficult decision to close our online studio and cease trading as of 31 October 2021. This decision was, of course, not taken lightly, but the financial impact of the pandemic has hit our small business hard and we don’t have the financial means to continue.
For the past week we have reduced all membership payments based on the remaining days left in the month. All membership payments scheduled after 31 October will be automatically cancelled and no further funds will be taken after this date.
If you have class credit on your account, we unfortunately aren’t able to offer refunds but would be happy to honour your credit in our online shop. In order to purchase items with your credit, please email us to place an order with your credit amount, the items you’d like to purchase and your address and we’ll aim to confirm your order within 3 business days.
While we may no longer be “open” after the end of this week, we would LOVE for you to continue practising with your favourite USY teachers, both online and in-person! We have shared links directly to their websites or shared their email addresses below for you to learn more about where, when and how to practice with them.
We are SO grateful for your loyal support over the years and we know that this community will live on in our amazing teachers, students and all of the friendships that were made over post-class cups of tea. We hope to still see you in classes for our final week, it would mean a lot to us and our teachers! Please let us know if you have any questions and thank you again for everything you have done to support us over the past 6 years.
It’s been a journey we will cherish forever.
