I am beyond excited at our progress with the studio. And by progress, I mean - finally there IS some! ;)
Opening a brick and mortar business has a lot of nuances to it. There are many (many) more steps than you can imagine, and even more when the property you are leasing is in the process of also being purchased by your landlord. Phew!!
But, we're finally approaching the point when the work (and the fun) really begins and that has me over-the-moon excited!
As you can see, we were recently able to have some Coming Soon signage installed on the windows. So now, people driving by our empty little space will see that something exciting is about to happen. WOO HOO!
In celebration, I have now launched the Body Positivity Yoga studio's website <---- click here and Facebook Page <---- click here. Please do like and share this with anyone in the area who may be interested in checking us out!
We're definitely going to be opening this spring. I have an incredible team of awesome teachers I'll be working with and we are going to have a fantastic schedule.
One exciting thing about this space is that it is accessible - including the washroom. No stairs. And a properly outfitted washroom. That means Chair Yoga (wheelchairs welcome) classes will be added to the schedule, finally! I have to admit, that was one major downside to teaching out of older or heritage buildings, previously.
We've picked out and ordered our flooring and we've picked out paint colours. We've collected a couple fun things to hang on the walls. There's a few more physical things we'll need to pick up but we have most things decided. Next up is cleaning and renovations. We'll be getting that started around the middle of next week. Exciting!! :-) I'll be taking lots of before, during, and after photos.
Hooray for seeing this all come to be! It's going to be so amazing.
