“We closed voluntarily about five days before the state closed everything. We immediately opted for free live streaming courses on Facebook and Instagram. We just wanted to keep our community together. We never reopened our shop, but we turned to classes in the park and a residence at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. We started a GoFundMe for ourselves to build an 800 foot long semi-permanent yoga deck on Orange Plaza with a beautiful platform, canopy, lights, decorations and potted plants. A flood of people came through, supported and even helped us set up. “

“During that time, many of us were isolated. That sense of community and mutual experience is really good for mental health. “
