Opening our doors

As I write this the June sun is streaming in through the window and it seems hard to believe that three months have flown by since I returned from Mysore and we started to work on the renovations at the Space. This is my first blog in quite a few weeks, as we have been putting in the hours to finish the transformation of our little building ready to open our doors.  We have had fantastic help from local contractors and really wonderful support from the local community and it feels great to finally be looking forward to rolling out a yoga mat here instead of wielding a paint brush.

I have posted up a few photos here so that you can see a snapshot of what we’ve been up to and there are a more on our Facebook page too.  We wanted to breath a little bit of light and life back into this wonderful building which has an amazing energy … we felt it the first time we ever stepped through the front door.  A place like this which has clearly been well loved and cherished and where generations of people have come together as a community for over a century is bound to feel quite special and it re-enforces for us the idea that although it is lovely to put a fresh lick of paint on the walls and give a building lots of care and attention, what really makes a space is the people.

So we are looking forward to welcoming both familiar faces and hopefully lots of new ones too over the course of the months to come.

We will be opening our doors with a Summer Schedule starting on the 27th July with a timetable of regular classes as well as a few ‘pop-up’ classes, workshops and events throughout the Summer.  In September we will launch a full timetable, including some really lovely teachers who we are very excited to have sharing yoga here with us.  The summer timetable is on our website now  at http://yogaatthespace.com/classes and you can call or email us if you would like to book or would like more information.

We can’t wait!
