Namasté and Welcome!

 Dear YogaBC members and Yoga community of British Columbia,

It is my sad task to inform you of the current state of YogaBC. As a board, we have been attempting to recruit board members and general volunteers for some time now, without success. With current board members needing to step down due to life commitments, the board is not able to function due to not having the appropriate number of board members required by provincial law for a non-profit to operate.

As a board, we are therefore considering the possibility of closing down the association. This is of course a tough decision that cannot be made by the board alone, so we will be consulting with the members on an appropriate course of action in the coming weeks.

As a result, we are no longer accepting new membership applications or renewing old ones at this time.

Everyone at YogaBC is deeply saddened by this. The board promises to keep the members informed of every step as we move forward.

In service,

James Hayter

President, YogaBC
