When I found out that The Yoga Room won the Current Reader’s Choice 2012 Award for Best Yoga Studio I was really excited! But even more than excited, I was grateful. I mean, The Yoga Room was obviously up against the ‘big box,’ satellite yoga studios that have opened up around town in the last few years, as well as those studios who have been pillars of the yoga community in Ann Arbor for decades. But The Yoga Room came out on top! And the reason why is because you all–my yoga students– must feel a sense of connection and loyalty to this studio, otherwise why would you have taken the time to vote? (No small feat, I know, since you had to vote for at least 30 categories to have your vote counted!)
Other yoga studios in town probably get as many students coming through their doors in a day that I get in a week. Yet it was you students whose votes put The Yoga Room on top. That loyalty and appreciation really means a lot to me. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication to your yoga practice and our community here at The Yoga Room. Your support over all these years—in so many different ways—means the world to me!
