Yoga studio closes due to financial pressures of the Covid 19 pandemic

After 15 years of serving the Isle of Man community – Karma Yoga Studio in Douglas has been forced to close its studiospace due to financial pressures caused by Covid-19. Classes will continue to be offered online. Two special offers are available during June.

 Just over 12 weeks ago, Karma Yoga studio made the difficult decision to close the studio space to comply with government regulations during the outbreak of Covid-19. Studio owner, Samantha Walker and the Karma teachers quickly adapted to offer live online classes eager to continue to serve their members.

 However, despite Karma’s efforts and support from their members – without assistance from the government, the Isle of Man’s longest established yoga studio has been forced to close its doors.

 The Studio owner, Sam, said: “it is with a heavy heart that I’ve taken the decision to close Karma’s studio space in Douglas after 15 years. I began teaching yoga at a time on the Island when yoga was largely unheard of and it has been one of my greatest pleasures to help drive the growth of the yoga community on the Island through training other teachers and opening the first yoga studio, to now having over 3,500 members in the Karma community. Yoga has been a saviour time and time again in my personal life, providing me with stability and strength in times of uncertainty and that rings true now more than ever. I am forever thankful to those who have continued to support Karma, over the years, to the Karma teachers and to those who have continued to practice with us online. We may be closing our physical space, but we will continue to offer yoga online and our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our community remains strong.

 “Karma’s teachers have been specifically chosen for their empathy and compassion toward your safety, and health and wellbeing, along with being trained specifically in the technique of teaching through a screen. Fourteen classes per week are available online in various styles suitable for all abilities from beginners to advanced practitioners.

During the month of June Karma will be running two offers, please contact for more information.
