Dear Bikram Yoga Mililani members,
We have some very sad news...
Due to our financial trouble to sustain our operation and maintain payments for our rent our landlords have decided to close our business. They don't want to give us a chance to grow any longer and want us out of their building. It's been very hard to grow and sustain ourselves for the past 12 months. We have tried our very best to improve each and every individual who came to our school - physically, mentally and spiritually. If we could, we would do this for free, but unfortunately we wouldn't even last 12 months. Our discounts and offers made this yoga available to everyone and we wanted to share it with as many people as possible. We wanted to create a loving and healthy community here in Mililani...
As some of you may know, Oleg - one of the owners, has been out of work for the past 4 months and so this yoga sustained our life. He was disabled and was forced to leave the military. Now that he found work, landlords don't believe we will be successful in running this business over such a long distance. Therefore it's their decision, not ours, to shut the doors.
Many of you have purchased packages - 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. We appreciate all your support and all of your loyalty and help. Over the last 12 months we put ourselves in over $70,000 of debt. It is our intention to pay all of you back your money, but it will take some time. Please be patient with us. What we will need you to do is email Oleg (OlegLejnin@hotmail.com) your name, home address and the package you have on file. We will take down names and slowly will start sending out checks. We can only afford to pay back $3,000 per month at this time, so you might have to wait 2 or 3 months before you receive your check in the mail. We appologize but we will do everything possible to send it to you as soon as we have the funds.
Last class is this Sunday, June 9th. Starting Monday, June 10 we are no longer allowed to opearate. It was our absolute pleasure and privilage to know every single one of you in the time we have been open. Our lives have been positively effected by your presense and your happy, smiling faces. We truly appreciate your involvement and your support. We urge you to continue your practice, despite our failure and to continue to improve your lives for the better. If you give this yoga a chance, it can change your lives for the better - physically, mentally and spiritually. Our karma and our spirits are clean before you all - we have done everything we could to help you. We will pay you back everything we owe you. Thank you so much for everything.
Namaste our friends.
