couldn't revive this one...

i have to admit that i saw this coming the moment i found out that heather camp, owner of revive yoga in chatsworth, had joined the list of yoga instructors at the yogaworks in westlake village. sadly, the little mom-and-pop shops have to fight for survival whenever the big YW opens up a new location in their neighborhood. and here's what happens when they lose that battle:

Hello Everyone,

Revive Yoga will be closing its doors on April 25th......
First, and most importantly, I would like to say how blessed I am to have had such a wonderful community of students to provide yoga to. This journey of cultivating a yoga community for the past 2 years has been a gift in more ways that I have ever dreamed of.

Those of you who have pre-paid packages and have been into the studio in the past 6 months... Yoga Works Westlake Village has been gracious enough to extend their hospitality and honor your existing series. Yoga Works has been a leader in yoga instruction in LA since 1987. It has a deep commitment to quality yoga programming. It offers yoga to all levels and to all stages of life. This studio is the first of its kind in the yoga industry and features three asana rooms, tea bar, childcare, lockers and showers. It also features classes and workshops taught by some of the most renowned teachers and workshop leaders.

I will be available to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have. You can contact me at 323-687-4823 or at heather@heathercamp.com. I welcome you to come by the Yoga Works office and get a taste of what Yoga Works has in store. Yoga Works is located at 2475 Townsgate Road. You can visit the website at www.westlakeyogaworks.com

by the way, according to the yogaworks website, their new location in tarzana is scheduled to open at the end of 2010. god only knows how that's going to affect the teacher rosters at the existing yoga studios in the san fernando valley...
