Its been exactly two weeks since I signed the lease for our new home studio. In exactly one week's time we (with the help of some VERY amazing friends and family including David Hermann, Don Dumaul, Tom Ivy, Eddie Garcia, Gloria Ivy) installed track lighting, curtain rods, and approximately 15 4x6 mirrors. We moved in 6 Reformers, 2 Cadillacs, and 1 Combo Chair. We also started to organize all the props and nick nacks and all the little extra things that start making a "house" feel like a home.
During week two we continued to outfit the space with bookshelves, cubbies, tables, more shelving units and my favorite personal touch, our very own studio coffee bar setup (which I can't wait to further develop to the point that Starbucks is jealous :)). Its a simple arrangement for now but the intention is to welcome clients to relax and feel at home in the space...to know that when you are here you are family and that you are safe, you are appreciated, and you are recognized for the special individual you are.
Tomorrow we launch our Group Reformer Class Schedule and I am beyond thrilled to marry convenience and affordability within our package options at the studio. At the same time we are beginning the search for the right instructor team who will share in the vision of Balance & Grace Pilates.
So much has happened and is happening in such a small amount of time!
And by the way, the studio space feels really good... when I walk into the space it feels welcoming, alive with possibility, and rich with intention and vibrancy. When I find myself at my studio desk time just flies by as I work towards sharing this bliss with all of you.
