A Letter to the Modo Yoga St. Catharines Community

April 1, 2021

From April and Bill Janzen and the Lost ‘n Found Yoga Team:

Dear Modo Community,

First, we want to extend our sincere condolences to Eric and Julia, and the staff, students, and the Modo community on the closure of Modo Yoga St. Catharines. COVID sucks, and it has been brutal on the fitness industry in particular. You all got a really raw deal, and we wish Eric and Julia all the best as we all hope for better times to come.

When we heard about the closure, we reached out to find a way to allow Modo students an opportunity to continue to participate in their yoga practice here at our studio at Lost ‘n Found Yoga. We are pleased to let you know that we are extending an offer to allow any Modo Yoga St. Catharines student to use up the full amount of any remaining classes at Lost ‘n Found Yoga. This offer applies to both class passes and unlimited memberships. The expiry for this offer will be March 31, 2022, so you will have up to 1 year to make use of any remaining classes that you purchased through Modo Yoga St. Catharines.

For those that aren’t familiar with Lost ‘n Found Yoga, we are an inclusive, welcoming community with our main studio located at the Grantham Plaza in St. Catharines, and a smaller 1-room studio in Fort Erie. We offer 95+ classes on our weekly drop-in schedule, including 35+ hot or warm classes. Although we are not a Modo studio, we offer a wide variety of class styles and difficulty levels, including Hatha Yoga (Level I & II), Warm Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Hot Vinyasa Flow, Hot Yoga Tone, Yoga Ballet barre, Booty Barre, Warm Yin Restorative, Yoga Tune Up, Hatha Flow, Chair Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Hatha (Shapes of Grace), Mat Pilates, Deep Stretch and Yoga & Weights.

As Ontario moves into lockdown again on Saturday, we recognize this is a difficult time to transition to a new studio. However, for those of you that are interested in online options, we run 25+ Live At-Home Simulcast classes/week using a 1-way Zoom call where you can see the instructor, but the instructor and other students don’t see or hear you at home. These classes are offered both during lockdown and while we are open during COVID. We also have an Online Video Yoga Library with over 850+ pre-recorded classes available to use online. These online options can help you keep up your practice, and then you can join us for in-person classes as soon as we are able to again!

To clarify, we have not purchased Modo Yoga St. Catharines and Lost ‘n Found Yoga is a totally separate, independent business. As such, in order to transfer your classes over to Lost ‘n Found Yoga, we will need to create a client profile for you in our system and add any remaining classes you had purchased onto your new account. Our Front Desk is staffed during lockdown from Monday through Saturday, so this is an ideal time to reach out and get your account setup. Please give us a call at 905-682-4469, or e-mail us at yoga@lostnfoundyoga.com.

For those of you that may not have a current membership or class pass at Modo Yoga St. Catharines, you are welcome to give us a try at Lost ‘n Found Yoga by purchasing our Introductory Offer, which is 30 days of unlimited classes for $39. This offer is good for both online classes and in-studio classes, and also includes up to 30 classes to choose from our Online Yoga Video Library. You can purchase this offer directly through our website at

Again, you all have our sympathies on the loss of Modo Yoga St. Catharines and the wonderful community and space that was created there. We hope that having the opportunity to join our community at Lost ‘n Found Yoga will give you a soft place to land, and that you can find the same kind of warmth and acceptance in our community that you enjoyed there.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

April & Bill and the Lost ‘n Found Yoga Team
