Dear Myo Community,
For the safety of our wonderful clients, therapists, and staff, as well as the Austin community at large, we have made the difficult decision to go into temporary closure effective tomorrow, March 19, for at least two weeks and possibly beyond. Although we were already taking extreme prevention measures, even the smallest avoidable risk is too much according to models for the spread of this epidemic. First and foremost, we must do the right thing.
As a small local business that relies on person to person contact, this will be a challenging and uncertain time for all of us for some time to come. Our staff have dedicated their careers to helping others through touch and movement, and it is difficult for us to sit this one out. We are working non-stop to find ways to support our team through this, financially and otherwise.
If you would like to help, purchasing gift certificates is amazingly helpful to sustaining us through this difficult time – and we know you’ll be very overdue for some quality bodywork when this is over! If you want to send something extra to a favorite therapist or instructor, you can purchase a certificate and include instructions in the message.
You can also attend and donate to our online classes – movement relieves stress and boosts immunity! This week, we have a schedule of online group classes available including Pilates, Floor Barre, Core Barre, Feldenkrais, Workout! with Erica Nix, Slow Flow Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, and Sound Healing Meditation. We’ll be adding more classes according to demand as we go along. Please visit the classes page for details on the schedule, and feel free to reach out with requests and suggestions.
We will still be responding to emails and voicemails during our closure. Please reach out if you have questions, need advice with an ongoing issue, or want to get in touch with your therapist.
We appreciate your understanding and on-going support. It is our honor to be your partner in health and wellness, and we look forward to coming back strong and healthy as soon as we can! Please stay tuned here and on social media for updates regarding our re-opening. In the meantime, stay safe and be well!
