Temporary Closure Nieuwe Achtergracht

The studio is closing temporarily due to the renovation of the foundation

General information

Our studio is located in a stretch of 4 canal houses that are slowly sinking (a common problem in Amsterdam), and therefore require to get a new foundation. This means that the floors of our lounge and dressing rooms are taken out completely to renovate the foundation. Fortunately the Shala remains untouched. After the foundation is fixed, a new floor will be placed back and the dressing rooms, showers, bath rooms and kitchen will be built from the ground up.

Expect a similar lay-out, but with new floors, bath rooms, showers, dressing rooms, kitchen, and a fresh coat of paint. So this makes the Nieuwe Achtergracht ready for years to come. 

Because the stretch of buildings our studio is in, is slowly sinking, a common issue in Amsterdam. But something you have to fix at some point, sooner rather than later.

We tried our best to find a period where it would impact everyone involved the least, but we only had limited input in when the construction work would take place. 

At this point, it appears that the renovation will start on the August 19th of this year and will continue towards the end of the year, we hope to re-open the refreshed studio in the new year again.

 

We are currently investigating several options in the neighbourhood, we need some more time to see what comes out of this. If you have an idea for an alternative space, you can share this with Quinten de Haas so he can explore opportunities (quinten@delightyoga.nl).

 

If you have ideas, input or questions, feel free to approach the hosts, or send us an e-mail at info@delightyoga.nl. If you have an idea for an alternative space, you can share this with Quinten de Haas so he can explore opportunities (quinten@delightyoga.nl).

We are looking for a space that is around 200m2, somewhere in Amsterdam-Oost (max. 10min bike ride from the Nieuwe Achtergracht). The space can be completely empty since we will bring all necessary things and props ourselves. We are also interested in looking at office-spaces, stores and warehouses that are temporarily not in use, or that are waiting to be rented out for longer periods but that could use a temporary tenant in the meantime. To be honest, we are not very picky at this moment, every big space in the right place is already very interesting.

Yes, the construction work will start on 19 August of 2019 and will go on towards the end of the year. We hope to open our renovated studio at the start of the new year. 

Not really, but it can not be later than August 1st to give us time to prepare the move. 

Yes, the treatment rooms on the second floor will remain open and in use. It might be that you experience some disturbance from construction-noises. However, this should be at very specific times only. At this point in time, it is hard to predict what the impact of these disturbances will be.

Yes, there will probably be some noise to be heard on the second floor, but this will hopefully be only at specific times, and for short periods. At this point in time, it is hard to predict what the impact of these disturbances will be. 

Schedule and programming

This depends on the space, and at what times we can use the space, but our intention is to move the full schedule to the alternative location so you can keep visiting your favourite class but just at a different location. 

In this scenario we will have to accept that we have to ask you to come to classes in different Delight studios. But we are confident that we can find an alternative space.

The intended solution for regular classes also apply to workshops and Special Classes, we are hoping that we can organise these in the alternative location as wel

Appointments that are already made will take place as they are currently scheduled, unless you are informed otherwise. The treatment rooms on the second floor will not be affected by the construction work.

Active products and pricing options

No, we will not offer discounts for classes in alternative locations. All regular products will be valid and treated equally compared to the other locations.

 

No, since we believe we offer you suitable alternatives in the form of our other locations and potentially the alternative location. If you do not agree, contact us at info@delightyoga.nl to see what we can do. Another idea is to freeze your membership for a few months, please contact us if that is a solution.

Your product will remain valid like the normal terms, and is therefore also valid in our temporary location or other Delight Studios. If these alternatives are not an option for you and you want to make different arrangements, please contact us at info@delightyoga.nl.
