It has been just over a year since I shared the news that we were closing our doors in the Wildewood Shopping Center. At the time, I remarked that Evolve Yoga + Wellness is much more than a physical space and a sign on a door. It is this beautiful, vibrant community we have co-created together over the last 11 years. This last year you have proven me right again and again.

Today’s date, 11/11 is somewhat auspicious in terms of numerology. Double ones relate to an abundance of creativity and the number eleven represents a deep connection to our intuition and is often seen as a sign of an impending spiritual awakening or rebirth. It seems an appropriate time as any to share with you at last the news about how Evolve is going to continue to grow and flourish in Southern Maryland.

After a lot of thought over the last 18 months, I have decided that now is the time to pass the baton of ownership and leadership of Evolve to two highly creative women and yogis. I have the highest regard for their skill, teachings, vision and their love for Evolve and all of you. For the past six weeks we have been working closing together and I will continue to work closely with these women through the end of 2021 so that we can have a smooth and graceful transition into 2022.

With that being said, it is with great excitement that I share that Kelley Sidorowicz and Hallie Stephenson will be the new directors of Evolve Yoga + Wellness effective January 1, 2022. It is my hope that you will support these women as they carry the torch of Evolve from here.

I anticipate many of you may have questions about this transition and the future. I fully understand and we are all working to get answers to these questions as soon as possible. We ask for grace and patience and will share more as we figure it out.

Please be on the lookout over the next week for a client survey coming to your inbox. This survey is a chance for you to provide valuable feedback that will help us move forward into the future of Evolve. It will also be an opportunity for you to submit your questions and concerns.

I am not going anywhere and will continue to support Hallie and Kelley as they step into this new role. I hope that you will offer them they same support and trust in their vision for Evolve Yoga + Wellness.

Sending you love, light and blessings,

Ann
