Dear Namaste Community,

It is with great sadness that we announce the closing of our Namaste Berkeley location on August 18, 2019.

We realize this may come as difficult news – especially for our devoted Berkeley students. However, the stresses and increased costs of running a small business in the Bay Area have proven challenging and we have determined that reducing our footprint is necessary. Our hope is that reducing the pressures of multiple locations and simplifying our business operations and programming will allow us to create a more sustainable business for the future.

We are committed to our mission of serving the Namaste community and we hope to continue to serve your practice for many years to come at our Oakland locations.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank our Berkeley community for the many years of support, studentship and friendship. The Berkeley location has been integral to our growth and will remain a special part of our legacy. We intend to honor the space and practice gratitude for it’s gifts over the next six weeks.

Please see below for a list of important dates and details about the transition. Direct communications will be forthcoming regarding how this change will impact members, teacher trainees, and wellness clients.

With deep gratitude and a heavy heart,
Kimberly Leo
Owner/Director of Namaste Yoga + Wellness
