It is hard to believe that our doors have been closed for almost a year now. I have walked into the studio several times in these past months and can still feel you. It has been the closest to a hug that I have felt in quite awhile. In all honesty, I have been struggling with my decision to keep the studio open. Paying rent on an empty building has been difficult financially and emotionally. Like many of us, although we have a practice such as dance, meditation or yoga, we have struggled this past year with all the stress and anxiety of the unknowns, isolation, as well as physical and emotional traumas that we have been navigating through the pandemic and the lifted white veil of systemic racism.
