Dear friends,

It is with a heavy and broken heart that we have to let you know that our beloved Alissa Bigelow has passed away. We know that you all benefited from her love & light and that you share our deep grief.

We hope that we can all support each other as a yoga community as we confront this news. The studio will hold a gathering to celebrate Alissa on Sunday, October 13, 2013, at the Karma Allston/B.U. studio (Karma Revolution), from 2:00 to 3:30pm. She taught her first yoga classes at this location, and the space is big enough to hold the very many people who loved her. 

Invited are all who were touched by her spirit. An optional Gentle yoga class led by Jesse will follow at 4:00pm. 

With all our love, 
Jesse and Doina
