Response to Coronavirus

Our Response

In response to coronavirus, Bloom temporarily closed its studio doors on March 15, 2020. Knowing how essential yoga and meditation are to well-being (especially during stressful times), we immediately pivoted to offer an online schedule of more than 30 weekly classes with your favorite Bloom teachers. It's been wonderful to stay virtually connected with you, our dear friends and community members. Your heartfelt messages of support and gratitude for our online yoga offerings have really been incredible. Thank you!

In-Person Closure Extended

Chicago is preparing to enter Phase 3 as of June 3rd. During Phase 3, we would be allowed to offer one-on-one private sessions, 30-minute massage sessions, and outdoor group yoga classes for 10 people or less. Governor Pritzker recently announced that Illinois will not be ready to move into Phase 4 until at least June 26th. Phase 4 is the earliest that we would be able to resume group yoga classes in our space. Thankfully, in the meantime our online classes are a great way for us to stay connected - we miss you! We'll continue to monitor guidelines about when and how to safely reopen for in-person offerings and will communicate those plans to you.

Taking care of our Incredible Staff

We know how much the fabulous Bloom team of teachers, massage therapists, and front desk managers means to all of you. Zach and I love our team, and we're grateful that we have been able to compensate our entire staff of managers during this in-person closure, and our teachers are back to work as well through their online yoga teaching! While our dear massage therapists are unable to offer their services remotely, we can't wait to reopen for massage appointments when it is safe to do so.

Thank you!

As always, I welcome your thoughts, suggestions, and input as we navigate this completely unprecedented situation in the most compassionate and conscious way we are able.

All of us at Bloom can't wait to gather together again in our sunny and welcoming space on Rockwell. It's such a joy to share in the practice of yoga with the guidance of our beloved Bloom teachers, and to receive the rejuvenating gift of massage in the skillful hands of our amazing massage therapists. Let's all take good care and stay connected - I'll be in touch again soon!

Take good care,

Kerry Maiorca, Founder
