Dear Boiler House Yoga students,

Hello, and let me introduce myself! My name is Juliana and I’m the owner of Rhode Island Hot Yoga in Bristol (which up until today has operated as East Bay Bikram Yoga). Before opening my studio in 2013, I taught at Ocean State Bikram Yoga in Pawtucket for two years and had the pleasure of teaching quite a few of you in class! I am thrilled to announce that I will be moving into the Boiler House space next month and launching our studio’s second location right here in Providence.

I know that many of you are probably anxious about the future of your Bikram yoga practice. Please do not worry anymore – we plan on taking excellent care of everybody! The studio will be closed for the month of May so that we can make some repairs and renovations and will re-open at the beginning of June. My goal is to start classes again on June 3rd. I will keep you updated on our progress!

When we open, we will provide you with a full schedule of Bikram yoga classes (yes – including 6am’s and 8pm’s!) taught by many of the great teachers you already know and love – Melissa, Jayme, Allyson, Lisa, Steph, Lynn, Glenna, the other Allison – as well as a few teachers who will be new to Providence.

For those of you who had memberships that you’d like to continue, please get in touch with me! We have some awesome pre-opening deals available right now, and I am happy to give you credit for your unused or partially-used purchases when we set up your new membership. You can write to me at and I will get everything sorted out.

In the meantime, I invite all of you to come visit our studio in Bristol and keep up with your practice! You can follow our Facebook page and join our newsletter to get all the updates on the space. I greatly appreciate the amazing work that’s been done in Providence during the last 5 years, and I’m excited to pick up where you left off and carry us into the future. I am sorry about the hiatus, but it will be worth it in the end. Just breathe, practice your savasana, and always remember: it’s never too late, it’s never too bad, and you’re never too old or too sick to do your yoga and start from scratch once again.

With love,
Juliana Olmstead
