Studio Update, Sunday, May 17
As the shutdown of businesses in our area enters its third month, we still do not have any clarity on when Soma Cura will be able to resume regular operations in the studio for massage, Yoga, retail sales, and the Salt Room.
Our best guess, based on the ambiguous and conflicting messages we get from the government and media reports puts our reopening between 2 and 7 weeks after the reopening begins, assuming there are no new developments that make things worse. We are either "Phase 2" or "Phase 4" of the reopening plan.
We are still hopeful that we can start some outdoor classes in the near future, and will let you know when those OK's have been received.
Thank you all for your support and patience during this time. We hope you are well and have made the most of this time for yourself and your families.
We have been busy trying to plan for the reopening and looking at how we need to reorganize to make visitors to Soma Cura as safe as possible without losing the "sanctuary" feeling you've come to expect when entering Soma Cura.

Membership status during the Coronavirus closure, Bonus for members!
During the State mandated closure of Soma Cura, we are giving people who are members a choice about what to do with their memberships.
We expect this closure to last for several more weeks, but not much longer than that. Based on this expectation, we are instituting the following policy for memberships. If it goes much longer than this time frame, we may have to revisit this plan.
First, all memberships with time deadlines, (Yoga memberships and salt room memberships) were paused as of March 16. Any time you had left on a month would be restarted once we are open again. So for example, if you had a yoga membership that had 15 days left on your most recent month, when we re-open, you will have 15 days left on the month you were working on. You will lose no time you have paid for.
Second, billing for memberships will continue unless you request that it be suspended. Any services purchased during the time we are closed will go on account to be used when we are open again. We will not expire any services on member accounts that are continued through the closure.. For those of you that can afford to do this, we sincerely appreciate the support during this stressful and difficult period.
SPECIAL BONUS FOR MEMBERSHIPS MAINTAINED OR STARTED DURING THE CLOSURE
If you maintain or start your membership during the closure on its existing autopay schedule, you will receive the following three benefits:
1. Unlimited use of our streaming Yoga classes, both live and pre-recorded (this is for Yoga, massage, salt or CLUB members).
2. A free salt room visit each time you are billed during the closure.
3. $10 bonus on your account for each time you are billed during the closure.
If you need to suspend your membership for your own circumstances, we completely understand. Please just let us know by e-mail (email@example.com) or call us @716-773-1369. We will suspend your membership and you may restart it when you are able to..
We hope you and your family and friends are happy, safe and free from harm. We look forward to the day when we can again share a Yoga room with you, provide you a massage or salt visit, and otherwise rejoin our previous community.

5.7.2020 Soma Cura to be closed until further notice. Yoga now available on-line.
On Monday, March 16, the Governor ordered all Gyms to be closed until further notice.
On Friday, March 20, the Governor ordered all personal service Companies (salons, spas, etc.).
To be in compliance with this and to be good citizens, Soma Cura has decided to shut down completely until further notice.
We will give you updates as we have them, but for now we are following the guidance of authorities trying to do our part to slow the speed of the spread of the Coronavirus.
Yoga classes have been made available online and we will be enhancing that in the days and weeks to come.
Be safe. We will get to the other side of this, and we will shortly find ourselves on a Yoga mat under a tree in a park in July, listening to our favorite Soma Cura instructors.
