Hi Amy,

Your situation is typical for this current economy. The new owner has probably absorbed the old owners debt. This put you in the position of having to adjust to a new relationship and you may have no loyalty to the new owner at all. This is probably a make or break situation for the gym owner who may have bought an anchor.

About your Yoga loft - you should make use of it with close clients, friends, and family. You have taken the time to make it a nice place. But if you take money for your services you should have yoga liability and extra home owners liability for running a business at home. On top of that your town may fine you if they find you are running a business that isn't zoned properly. The zoning and inspecting process will make your head spin if your town has much bureaucracy. To do everything legally may require you to meet all of your town's building codes.

Here's another idea - talk to the new gym owner to find out if there is any room for compromise. Make it a point to end with a positive note. This is only to find out if there is room and no need for any confrontation. If your conversation ends on a good note - excellent! If not visit a yoga studio, dance school, or martial arts school in your town. Nobody will turn away a yoga teacher with a student following in this economy. And you may find the opportunity of a lifetime.

Best of luck and Happy holidays.
